Family Adventure Travel in Bali

Bali is part of the vast Indonesian archipelago that spreads itself over 17,000 tropical islands in South East Asia. It is an island with fascinating religious beliefs, an ancient culture, volcanoes, rice paddies, temples, marine life and wonderful food. Nearby islands are home to Orangutans, Komodo Dragons and some of the best underwater life in the world. Each island has its own character, and local culture and religions can differ from island to island. This truly is Asia at its most diverse and exotic!

Destination Highlights


Culture is part of daily life in Bali. Painting, carving, music and dance are not for special occasions. They are part of daily life. So is religion, and visiting a temple with its musical rituals is a very special experience.


The interior of Bali is like a constellation of emerald green rice paddies that cover every square foot of land. The green vistas are unforgettable.


The coast is an integral part of every trip to Bali. Whether you are swimming, surfing, relaxing at a bar or restaurant, or staying at one of many incredibly luxurious seaside hotels, you can almost always hear and see the ocean.


Being active is one of the highlights of a trip to Bali. Mountain biking, hiking, snorkelling and diving, or climbing volcanoes – Bali offers adventure in spades.


Bali has some of the finest wellness spas and yoga facilities in Asia. Add in the healthful Balinese cuisines and you have the perfect destination for relaxing and recharging your batteries.

Other Islands

One can easily combine other islands on any Bali trip. Each island has its own special culture and history, wonderful beaches and incredible hotels. The wildlife is unique – the endangered Orangutan, the huge Komodo Dragon, and of course the incredible undersea life.
