Itinerary

Day 1: A NEW DAWN IN BALI

Soak in the delights of Seminyak – Bali’s answer to Ibiza, with chic boutiques and rooftop bars. Check into your tropical hotel before heading to the beachfront for a welcome meal and cocktail with your fellow Flashpackers

 

Welcome to Bali, an island so idyllic that even the airports come framed in tropical foliage. Please touch down here before 3pm, where you’ll be whisked off by private transfer to your chic hotel in Seminyak. This elegant beach haven is quietly fostering a reputation as Bali’s unsung rock star. More serene than neighbouring Kuta, it’s home to designer boutiques, eclectic galleries and a growing clutch of internationally renowned restaurants and clubs. Today is all about getting to know your fellow Flashpackers, so settle in before joining your new group at one of Seminyak’s exclusive night-time hangouts. The town boasts a cluster of achingly hip bars, many of which provide a front-row seat to the Indian Ocean. Grab a cocktail – signature drinks are made with local fruit such as starfruit, passionfruit and freshly pressed citrus – before soaking in your very first Balinese sunset. As the sky turns to a blaze of fiery orange, get chatting to your newly-formed squad of adventurers and soak up the distinctly Ibiza-style vibes of this stylish beach metropolis.

Day 2: FLY HIGH YOGA & A SPICY COOKING CLASS

Travel to the lush hillside valley of Ubud, Bali’s cultural heartland. Check into your hotel, a unique riverside retreat with a spa, pools and a variety of wellness classes. Dangle from the ceiling at a fly high yoga class, and flex your culinary skills with a community-run Balinese cooking class 

 

Sleep off the hangover before travelling en group to Ubud, Bali’s thrumming cultural heart. This idyllic hillside hamlet has become more popular since its star turn in the novel Eat, Pray, Love but it’s still a draw for free-spirited explorers looking to immerse themselves in the town’s artisanal spirit. Artists and traditional tukang (craftspeople) are everywhere, trading their skills against a spectacular backdrop of lush valley scenery. After a quick freshen up, it’s time to flex your yoga skills at a ‘Fly High’ yoga class. Suspended in hanging belts, your instructor will lead you through a series of stretches and poses as you dangle form the ceiling. Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or a total newbie, this beginner lesson is a fun way to defy gravity and tone those abs. Or if yoga’s not your thing, there’s a café here where you can grab a drink or you can be dropped off at the hotel for some chill-time. After lunch and an afternoon at your leisure, it’s onto dinner and you’ll make your own this evening, with a Balinese cooking class in a community village kitchen. Here you’ll learn how to transform the region’s rich local ingredients – think fragrant spices and an abundance of super-fresh veg – into tasty and authentic dishes. Finish off an action-packed day by savouring the fruits of your labour… who has the best culinary prowess?

Day 3: TREKKING AND TEMPLE BATHING

Make the most of the dense jungle scenery with the Campuhan Ridge Walk, a two and a half hour trek through mist-clad hills and picturesque villages. Visit the sacred Tirta Empul Water Temple to witness a ritual bathing tradition unfold amid lush mountain greenery. If you have time, take up a sunny spot by the gorgeous hotel pool

 

Start the day the healthy way, with an invigorating amble through Ubud’s jungle valley. The Campuhan Ridge Walk takes around two and a half hours, with brilliant views over the region’s jaw-dropping landscape. Pass through steep valley ravines framed by thick tropical foliage, and villages peppered with picturesque lotus ponds. From jungle hilltops clouded in mist to pathways flanked by palm trees and rice paddies that stretch away into the horizon, there’s plenty to marvel at – and the potential for Insta-fodder is unrivalled. Next stop is Tirta Empul Water Temple, and a chance to see Ubud’s legendary healing waters. Witness the tradition that has been observed since the Middle Ages of locals taking a ritual bathe in one of Bali’s most sacred garden temples. The water here is thought to cleanse your karma, so make a wish in your tranquil surroundings framed by ancient stonework and greenery.
