Livin La Vida Lombok
Start and finish in Sanur, and head to Senaru for waterfalls, Senggigi for volcanoes and forests and the Gili Islands for snorkeling in between. Ace.
The red star on Bintang Beer is almost like the logo for Indonesia. If you end the trip without tasting this refreshing drop then you just haven't lived. Just on't buy the one with the blue label, it's non-alcoholic. Or maybe you're into that kind of thing.
Day 1 - Sanur
Time for shopping, eating and a few Bintangs Arrive in Sanur
Attend a Welcome Meeting at 6pm
Perhaps enjoy some shopping or relaxing if you arrive early
Day 2 - Senaru
Fast boat to Lombok, then a short drive to Senaru. There’s a great contrast what we've just seen. The scenery is really different from Bali and the people are predominantly Muslim rather than Hindu.
- Cross by ferry to Lombok and drive to Senaru
- Free time
- Time permitting, perhaps undertake optional village walks and visit the nearby waterfalls and rice terraces
- Accommodation is simple with cold water showers, but the weather is hot!
Day 3-4 - Senggigi
The trek up Mount Rinjani volcano is optional, but you’d be crazy to miss out. You need to be pretty fit, but we’ll take you up to the rim and you can spend the night camping under the stars.
- Perhaps embark on an early start for a trek up the slopes of Rinjani
- Spend a full day walking and arrive at the rim of this volcanic mountain, and spend the night camping under canvas or under the stars
- Hike through mountain forest that echoes to the call of monkeys, and emerge on the moonscape slopes of the volcanic cone
- Reach the rim at sunrise and enjoy the views from above the clouds and looking down into the crater
- Take in the panoramas of Rinjani’s peak, Segara Anak (the crater lake) and the new volcano
- If you do not trek the mountains you can undertake the optional Panorama Walk, which is highly recommended, before driving to Sengiggi, if you embark on the Rinjani trek you will get to Sengiggi on Day 4
Day 5-7 - Gili Islands
As a reward for your big day of trekking we’ll take you cruising around the Gili Islands. Swim, sunbake, walk or partake in some of the world’s best snorkelling and diving.
- Travel to the Gili Islands - home to the best snorkelling in Lombok
- Spend three days relaxing and exploring on these tranquil islands
Day 8 - Sanur
Zip back to south Bali on a fast boat, rather than the slow ferry. This means more time to do a bit of last minute shopping or eat your body weight in prawns.
- Transfer back to South Bali via fast boat
- Continue back to Sanur
- Enjoy the afternoon shopping or relaxing
- Perhaps take an optional last night out with the group
Day 9 - Sanur
Your trip ends after breakfastBreakfast
