Idyllic destinations like Bali happen to have some of the most incredible adventures when you explore further than the beach, as this 12-day tour demonstrates. Go from whitewater rafting at Ubud's Ayung River to a bike ride along rural farms and plantations in Bulian, and a nighttime volcano hike in east Java. There's just enough free time in between to relax and catch your breath in Pemuteran, but if you'd rather spend it snorkelling or scuba diving, we're on your side.
