More than just another fun-in-the-sun getaway, Bali also reveals a rich history and varied geography of mountains, rugged coastal areas, sandy beaches, thriving rice terraces, and stark volcanic hillsides that seem transported from another planet. A Bali tour uncovers some of the world's best surfing spots, as well as a deeply spiritual local culture and globally significant archeological attractions.

Scuba & Snorkeling · Shark Diving · Stand-Up Paddleboarding
Gili Islands, an archipelago of three small islands that caters exclusively to tourists, sits just off the coast of Lombok. The region features lush forests, sandy beaches, and blue seas complete with tourist-focused amenities, such as restaurants, pools, spas, and tour group companies. Many people come to enjoy the marine life and coral formations here. Motorized vehicles are banned on the islands, so look for alternative travel methods like a horse-drawn carriage called a cidomo.
