8 days; Sanur to Candi Dasa.

From pristine beaches to temples surrounded by jungle, Bali is a land loaded with cultural and natural highlights.

This well-packed adventure offers up the perfect blend of the must-sees with free time to get off the beaten path — where the people you'll encounter are just as likely to be memorable locals as other travellers.

With its excellent food, artists, and culture, there's more to this beloved island than just getting a little extra sun.

This initiative supports and assists people living with disabilities in Bali to find independence and meaningful employment through training in the hospitality sector.

Our ground partners are working in the community to break down these stereotypes, and provide resources, training, and education to adults living with disabilities to gain independence and confidence, and find employment within their community. Fully managed and operated by individuals living with disabilities, enjoy a delicious traditional Balinese buffet lunch prepared by the organization while learning more about this initiative that empowers individuals through skills and employment training.

All proceeds from this included lunch support the organization's training, education, advocacy and outreach programs, as well as resources such as wheelchairs and three-wheeled mopeds.
