This wellness tour is great for foodies and those looking to relax and recharge. You’ll be joining a small group of travellers who are also looking to enjoy a rejuvenating break in Bali, Indonesia.

The 9-day tour includes activities such as yoga and meditation, as well as visiting a number of beautiful temples and waterfalls.

You’ll get to try authentic Balinese dishes and organic healthy meals are provided throughout the trip. Breakfast and lunch is included every day, as well as optional activities including snorkelling, rice field and temple visits.

G-Adventures are all about giving back to the local community, so on Day 2, you’ll get to have a community lunch with the locals, and you’ll get to try your hand at some new skills including cooking, massage, Balinese dance, writing in Balinese and even attempt anti-gravity yoga.

Bali is home to beautiful beaches and sunsets, friendly locals, and delicious food. The tour starts in Ubud, one of the most popular towns in Bali. Ubud is home to rice paddies, gorgeous rainforests and some of Bali’s most famous landscapes including Hindu temples.

Experience the other side of Bali in Permuteran. Here, you’ll get to experience unbelievable sunsets across the bay, and this is one of the best spots for snorkelling. Permuteran is very laid-back and chilled and is still one of the lesser-visited areas in Bali so you can experience Balinese life as a local.

Sanur is the place you won’t want to forget your camera. This beachside town has a long stretch of shallow waters which make it the ideal place for those Instagram shots. This is yet another laidback town where you can go exploring by bicycle or relax with a massage or yoga class.

This initiative supports and assists people living with disabilities in Bali to find independence and meaningful employment through training in the hospitality sector. In Hindu-Bali, it is a societal belief that being born with a disability is a product of "bad karma". Our ground partners are working in the community to break down these stereotypes, and provide resources, training, and education to adults living with disabilities to gain independence and confidence, and find employment within their community. Fully managed and operated by individuals living with disabilities, enjoy a delicious traditional Balinese buffet lunch prepared by the organization while learning more about this initiative that empowers individuals through skills and employment training.
