Get out and discover what the North East Coast of Bali has to offer! We have plenty of excursions in and around the area.
Bali Cultural Excursion – Discover the inner workings of Balinese society and way of life. Visit farms, plantations, traditional homes and learn about natural sea salt production in the area. Your English-Speaking Balinese guide will explain the medicinal properties of local flora, used for traditional remedies and show you Bali through his eyes, a perspective few visiting the island ever get to see. This excursion includes a stop for refreshments and local Balinese snacks.
Sunrise Dolphin Watching Boat Cruise – Take a traditional jukung out to join the dolphins for a spectacular sunrise off the north coast. Spotted dolphins, spinner dolphins and bottle nosed dolphins are among the species in the area. It’s a 6am start right from the beach at Poinciana. Return time is before breakfast, so it leaves the rest of the day for other activities.
Bali Offering Making Class and visit to Tajun Temple or Ponjok Batu Temple – Learn to make your own canang sari offering, the most prolifically made and thus important rituals in Balinese life. Then take your canang sari as an offering to Tajun Temle, one of the oldest and powerfully spiritual temple sites in Bali. Tajun Temple is not well known by those not living in the area and had been, until a few years ago, restricted to everyone except those actually living in the village of Tajun. Or make an offering with your canang sari at Ponjok Batu Temple, one on Bali’s seven sacred sea temples, said to ward off evil spirits coming in from the North East.
Yeh Mampeh Waterfall – A 2 km hike takes you through plantations and jungle to experience the power of this natural wonder. Along the way, your guide will also talk about how the forests are respected by the Balinese as a protector and provider, explaining how the Balinese have traditionally used the jungles for everything from traditional medicines and agriculture to construction and spiritual sanctuary.
Sekumpul Waterfall Excursion – Touted as Bali’s most beautiful waterfall, ‘Sekumpul’ means ‘a collection of’ as it’s actually made up of several waterfalls in the same area from as high as 80m, nestled in a pristine jungle environment. The hike through lush rainforest to Sekumpul waterfalls is challenging. There are lots of stairs and you need to cross a river, so be prepared with comfortable walking shoes. If you are adventurous, strong and brave, the effort to get there will certainly pay off. This excursion is not recommended for those with respiratory, heart, joint or back problems. The Sekumpul Waterfall excursion is not offered during rainy season.
Muntigunung Trekking – Come and discover the Bali wilderness and help the community at the same time. This Eco trekking project was created to help the 35 communities in the Muntigunung region be self-sustainable in an area of the island that is dought stricken for 8 months of the year and unsuitable for development and agriculture.
We also have a wide range of day tours to explore the rest of the island. All tours are 8 hours unless otherwise noted.

Then we take you to the Tegallalang rice terraces, a marvel of engineering and beauty, followed by the famed Ubud monkey forest, then a stop at the Ubud market for a bit of browsing or shopping.
