Brooke Willson

At the age of 20 I traveled SE Asia visiting 5 countries, including Indonesia. The thought of returning to Bali with another amazing group of people - Peru and Patagonia friends welcome! - is beyond exciting. Craig, my now fiance, will also be joining us and by the time we arrive in Bali we will be newly married!! We hope you’ll join us on our extended honeymoon in Bali!!

Welcome to Bali! Your guide will be waiting at the International arrival terminal outside baggage claim. Meet and greet before leaving for your hotel in Ubud.

In the evening, you’ll head to a nearby restaurant to enjoy your first meal together, as you toast to all of the fun and adventure to come!

Wake up early and summit Mount Batur just in time for the sun to rise. The journey is 2 hours each way, and totally doable for any level. At the top, you’ll enjoy a light breakfast while you watch the sunrise over Bali. The views at the top will make it all worth it!

After the trek, head to the local hot springs for some well deserved recovery. Then head back to Ubud where the rest of your day is at leisure.

Next, you’ll head to the canyon where you will spend the next 4 hours jumping, rappelling, swimming, and trekking through lush and rugged nature. This is a must for all you thrill seekers! At the end, grab lunch back at basecamp and look through all the epic photos your guide took along the way. You will then be dropped off at the hotel in Ubud.
