Expedition Bali offers a variety of tours that encompass history, nature and geology, all complimented by some of the most breathtaking panoramic views of natural wonders that you will be able to see with your own eyes, be it in Kintamani with Mount Batur, or one of the many waterfalls.
Traditional Village Tour, Bamboo Forest and Mount Batur Volcano Explorer Tour including the Lava Cave. Lunch at the hot springs is an optional extra with a dip in the 5 Star Natural Hot Springs.
We dont stop there; how would you like to visit a coffee plantation. Your driver can take you for a visit of any one of the coffee plantation for a much needed coffee or tea on your way home; you may even want to try the world famous Luwak coffee.
This is a massive day out! Don’t plan anything else on this day, you’ll be busy; yet you will return strangely relaxed.
THIS TOUR IS ESSENTIALLY FOUR TOURS IN ONE DAY.
You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Bali by a privately owned, airconditioned vehicle that will have the volcanic water on board for you to drink at your leisure. Now you’re on your way to visit Penglipuran, a beautiful highland village best known for its well-preserved culture, traditional village layout and pristine grounds with no rubbish. Ask your guide about the mythology behind the name of the village. The family compounds are well-kept to retain their old-world architecture, with manicured gardens lining its single, stone-paved street running through the centre of the village toward the village temple. The age-old arched entrance gates and walls that conceal the houses within are for you to go through and witness the village life.
Then, just to the north of Penglipuran Village is an incredible old growth Bamboo Forest for you to walk through.
Back in your airconditioned chariot, and you’ll be heading up to Kintani, specifically Mount Batur. This is where you will do your 4WD Volcano Explorer Tour. On this tour you’ll see and, go in if you dare, a cave formed by a lava flow pocket of air. The air inside is not like other caves, it doesn’t smell musty and still, the air is relatively fresh with no bats, yet it is pitch black like other caves. Step inside 10 – 15 meters and you won’t be able to see your hand in front of your face.
Next is the volcanic lava flow of 1964. You will be surrounded by black lava formations and will witness the extraordinary view of an active volcano in the distance. Incredible photo opportunities await. This is where Instagram and Facebook go into over-drive, with the young ones wanting to do TikTok videos. You’ll stop a few times to get out and take photos, however this tour doesn’t have any trekking or hiking. That’s right, zero trekking, zero hiking, your tour guide does all the work while he navigates the 4WD vehicle through the lava fields to get to the 1843 lava flow. You’ll also witness the local farmers working their vegetable gardens in small fields as you cruise through the local farming regions.
When this tour is finished, you’ll be back at the pick-up point, and once again, it’s back in your airconditioned chariot, however this time on your way to a coffee plantation. At this point, some people need a coffee and some people just want to go home, it’s been a big day. This option is completely up to you, all you need to do is inform your driver.
