Parks and Squares in Bali
If you’ve had enough of the sunbed, get out in nature and enjoy the greens side to Bali. Simply admire the views without breaking a sweat or embark on a wild adventure, from volcano hiking to horse-riding. There are loads of opportunities to see Bali beyond the beaches, shopping and fancy resorts.
There are loads of waterfalls in Bali’s north, perfect for a day's explorations. Snap pictures of these stunning spots where tumbling waters meet Bali's lush jungle scenes, or get amongst it and rappel down the waterfalls with a professional operator to guide you. Gitgit waterfall near Ubud is one of Bali's most famous, but you'll also love Sekumpul, NungNung, Tegenungan and Banyumala Twin waterfalls.
Indonesia has more active volcanoes than any country in the world, and Bali has two of them. Mount Agung towers over the island at 3,142 metres, while Mount Batur sits inside a 12km wide crater. If you’re relatively fit you’ll easily tackle the two hour trek to the summit, and the views reach as far as Lombok.Take a professional guide on either trek for the best advice and timings.
Bali Treetop Adventure Park
Swing through the trees at Bali Treetop Adventure Park. Check your balance crossing shaky suspensions bridges, fly through the canopy on flying foxes, and tackle any number of the 72 challenges over seven adventure circuits.
Cycling through richly green rice fields stopping at small warungs in the hills to refresh yourself, is a great way to immerse yourself into the quiet island atmosphere. Take a bicycle tour in Kintamani or Ubud, away from the tourist throngs. You can also find horse riding tours through the rice paddies, or set out on your own two feet and do it at your own pace.
