Get active in Bali with your teensUbud, Indonesia
There is more to Bali then the traditional flop and drop holiday, so why not take your teenagers and experience this beautiful destination. This jam-packed itinerary gets families out into nature with biking, hiking and rafting tours, plenty of pool time, a cooking class, and the opportunity to snorkel in Bali's clear blue waters.
Starting in the cultural centre of Ubud, families can enjoy the relaxed pace of this gorgeous artist town filled with local shops and restaurants before flying over trees at the Treetops Adventure Park. The area is also known for its white water rafting, and you'll get the chance to navigate a course along the Ayung River. Next you'll head to the coast of Candi Dasa and Amed, which are filled with palm tree-fringed beaches and lots of fun activities to enjoy. Then you'll finish up in the popular seaside town of Seminyak, where you can try your hand at a local cooking class which the entire family will enjoy.
- Experience the natural beauty of Bali with the kids, away from the crowds
- There’s plenty of time to spend together as a family, be it rafting the rapids or snorkelling off the coast
- Allocated downtime ensures you’ll still have a relaxing getaway
- The hands-on cooking school will appeal to Masterchefs in the making
- WiFi may be patchy in some locations, which means the teens won’t be able to get online as much as they’d like – but is that such a bad thing?!
All major cities in Australia offer direct flights to Denpasar. From Ngurah Rai International Airport it is just a one hour drive to Ubud.
When rafting along the Ayung River you’ll encounter Class II and III rapids, and then reach speeds of up to 27-kilomtres on a bike ride through the Balinese countryside. There’s also a two-hour trek through the rice fields of Bali which requires a moderate level of fitness.
