WakaLandCruise is proud to present its two newest adventures, both of which take visitors on an extraordinary journey, by Land Rover or Land Cruiser, to areas of spectacular natural beauty. In the safe hands of a knowledgeable cruise director, guests will have the opportunity to witness many of the traditional, cultural and mystical aspects of rural Bali.
One of these day-trips takes guests to Kintamani, the name given to the area surrounding Gunung Batur volcano and Lake Batur, which both sit within a massive, 25-thousand-year-old caldera. The iconic view from the rim has to be one of the most photographed sights in Bali, yet the Wakalandcruise journey into the caldera through the mysterious lava field is something that most visitors don’t get the chance to experience. This exciting daytrip also stops at Segara Windhu coffee plantation for an opportunity to sample the freshly harvested coffees and teas; at Tegallalang to see the magnificent sculpted rice terraces; and at Ubud Monkey Forest to observe the mischievous long-tailed grey macaques. The forest is also home to around 115 different species of trees and three ancient temples.
The other new daytrip focuses on the Ubud area in Bali’s central highlands, starting with a tasting session of locally grown coffee, tea, and organic chocolate at Teba Sari Coffee Plantation, and followed by a gentle paved walk along the Campuhan Ridge, which passes between two steep and lush river valleys. On a clear day, one can see Mt Agung, Bali’s most revered volcano, rising majestically in the east. The excursion ends with a visit to one of Bali’s beautiful waterfalls, Kanto Lampo, where guests can take a cool dip in the river or pose for photos in the refreshing flow of the cascade within a lush jungle terrain.
On both daytrips, guests will be served a delicious lunch of local flavours at the legendary Murni’s Warung, the first real restaurant in Ubud, which was created in 1974 by Ibu Murni who still owns and runs it.
Each WakaLandCruise includes transfers from / to hotel, mineral water, tea, coffee and Balinese snacks, and lunch inclusive of a fruit juice or a soft drink.
