Refreshing Countryside Walks in Northern Bali

- A Secret Retreats journey -
5 days / 4 nights
from 475 USD



This journey has been personally designed by Sebastian Liebold,
“Sebastian has made Bali his home for over 15 years, and as the Manager at Sanak he embraces Balinese culture and shares his insights on an area of Bali off the beaten tracks, where nature and traditions are still intact and sustainability a daily practice.”

All our itineraries have generally been constructed on the basis of the rooms that have the most charm or best view, and not necessarily the first prices, nor the most expensive suites.
We can of course adjust according to your request.

Highlights of the Journey:

  • Experience the unspoilt and lush-green heart of Bali
  • Gentle walks to hidden temples and waterfalls
  • Meet and connect with the local farming community
  • Stay in a luxury resort immersed in a verdant rural landscape

Northern Bali is a world away from the more beaten path of Bali’s southern coast and its famed beaches. This itinerary immerses you in the slow lifestyle of north Bali. Lush, forested and fertile, life in northern Bali is largely agricultural, the rhythm of life following the farming calendar with the rich Balinese festival calendar marking time in a cacophony of colour and vibrant celebrations of life. Staying in a gorgeous luxury resort set amidst lush rice fields your 5 day stay will share the local culture with you through a variety of activities that are perfect for couples, singles and families too. Learn about the local way of life from your farming neighbours, trek the local forest and jungle to wonder at the flora and fauna, visit secluded temples and hidden waterfalls and marvel at the surrounding natural beauty of the mountains and volcanoes that create your horizon. A slow-life style travel itinerary, time is built in to also allow you to enjoy the resort too, whether taking treatments at the spa, practicing yoga, enjoying private dining experiences or just relaxing at the pool.

Best time: April to October
