Day 1: Canada – Night on board
Arrive at your Canadian departure airport to catch a flight* to Bali. Night on board.
* If either your outbound or inbound flights depart in the early hours (before 4:00 a.m.) you must arrive at the airport the night before the indicated departure day.
Day 2: In-flight
Continue your journey to Bali. Due to the time difference, you will lose a day on the outward journey, but you will gain it back on your return journey. You are not in-flight for two days.
Day 3: Ubud
On arriving at Bali’s Denpasar Airport, begin your journey with a transfer by car to the artistic village of Ubud. Surrounded by rainforest and rice paddies in the island’s central foothills, Ubud is known as a centre of traditional Indonesian dance, craft, and sacred religious sites. More than three million travellers visit Ubud every year as its interior location offers an ideal base to explore all that Bali has to offer.
After checking into your hotel, you are free to explore the village at your leisure. Take in your new surroundings with a stroll along the main boulevard, try some local cuisine, or just relax by the pool. Overnight stay in Ubud.
Day 4: Ubud & Kintamani (B)
Breakfast at the hotel. The day begins with an included trip outside the town centre to see Bali’s most famous rice paddy in Tegalalang, followed by a stop at Kintamani. This picturesque town situated in a mountainous region is known for its panoramic views over verdant valleys, a lake, and an active volcano. Unlike the typical heat and humidity Bali is known for, Kintamani is often noted for its fresh, cool air.
After coming back down into central Bali, visit Tirta Empul, a Hindu water temple with natural mineral springs. The Balinese believe that the waters have purifying properties and regularly come to bathe and pray to Vishnu, the god to whom the temple is dedicated. On the drive back to the hotel in Ubud, make one final stop at the stunning, 15-metre tall Tegenungan Waterfall. Overnight stay in Ubud.
Day 5: Ubud (B)
Breakfast at the hotel. On this free day, take the morning to relax in your room or wander Ubud to your heart’s content. If you aren’t sure how to spend this day, we recommend an optional excursion to Besakih & Penglipuran*, a village famous for its continued preservation of traditional Balinese architecture and social structures. Overnight stay in Ubud.
Optional excursion to Besakih: Visit the oldest temple in Bali before heading to Penglipuran, a village located in the Bangli Regency. This indigenous village offers a unique opportunity to see firsthand how people have lived for centuries, while also appreciating natural beauty among the rice paddies and the Goa Lawah Cave that you’ll see along the way. Note that lunch is included in the price of this optional activity.
Day 6: Ubud – Benoa (B)
Breakfast at the hotel.
Begin your included excursion with a visit to Mengwi and the Taman Ayun Temple, built in the early 17th century for a local prince. This UNESCO World Heritage site is known for its lovely gardens with exceptional water features, which you will have the chance to explore independently.
Then, meet the wild monkeys of Alas Kedaton–known locally as the holy monkey forest. Surrounded by the fragrant nutmeg trees, explore this stunning habitat that is home to “Flying Fox” fruit bats and several varieties of large primate.
End the day with another breathtaking landscape as the sun sets over the Tanah Lot Temple, built on a cliff overlooking the sea. Appreciate the sound of the crashing waves in this meditative setting before a short drive to the hotel in Benoa. Check-in and relax until the next day’s adventure. Overnight stay in Benoa.
Day 7: Benoa (B)
Breakfast at the hotel. Take the morning to discover your new surroundings. Feel free to relax, exercise, or shop in town. If you aren’t sure how to spend your morning, join an optional cooking class* and learn the basics of fresh Balinese cuisine.
In the afternoon, meet for a drive to the Bukit Peninsula on the southern side of the island. This arid, rocky landscape offers something completely different from the wet, forested interior of the island. Discover the Uluwatu Temple, one of Bali’s most spiritually significant sites. Enjoy the sunset with sweeping views over the temple, as locals perform the traditional Kecak Dance. This daily ritual is performed at sunset every day at Uluwatu and other Balinese temples, and is believed to cause the dancers to enter a trance-like state. On the way back to the hotel after sunset, stop for an included fresh and delicious dinner in Jimbaran.
Please note that the Uluwatu Temple is known for its abundant population of wild Macaque monkeys. Please be careful with all belongings including hats, cameras, and phones as they are known to take items from visiting tourists.
Optional cooking class: Spend the first half of your day learning about Bali’s rich culinary culture. Begin with traditional Indonesian baked goods, and enjoy your homemade treats along with Balinese coffee or tea. For lunch, make use of the island’s world-famous spices to create and taste local food layered with complex flavours.

Day 9: Benoa (B)
Breakfast at the hotel. On your final full day in Bali, take advantage of another free day to take in any last-minute sightseeing.

You will also have the chance to experience a magical experience on our night cruise*.
Optional sunset dinner cruise: Spend a magical night onboard a luxury boat. Enjoy refreshing cocktails and a buffet of international cuisine as the sun sets over Bali. Whilst you sail the night away, a live cabaret show on board will keep you entertained.
