9 Ways to bring back your Sense of Adventure in Bali

Share the Love!

Bali has been on the tongues of men ever since its discovery, its popularity increasing each year. And why wouldn’t it? However, the usual itineraries that people stick to are the beautiful temples or the romantic dinner spots on the beach. So my adventurous squad and I went to Bali seeking a different experience.

 

1. Canyoning

Abseil down stunning waterfalls, slip down natural water slides, free jump into rock pools and swim in warm spring basins in the canyons of Bali. Test your courage and go through routes unseen. Knowing how to swim helps, but is not a compulsion. The guides are excellent and are really patient even if you take 10 minutes to gather your courage to jump off a small cliff. It was my favourite adventure for a reason.

 

2. Climb an active volcano!

I climbed a volcano this year! How cool does that sound? Make it happen in Bali. It is not an easy climb, especially for a person like me who has no physical activity in my daily routine. There were moments when I questioned why I was torturing myself and moments when I decided to give up. But the promise of a glorious sunrise kept me going. And after almost 4 hours of a grueling climb, we reached the top and boy was it worth it?!

While there feast on eggs boiled in volcanic steam. Then, you can optionally go to the natural hot springs and get a much deserved relaxing moment. But first pat yourself on the back on having done it.

 

3. River rafting

Although river rafting is a pretty common adventure activity, I highly recommend you to still go for it. Whether you are 5 or 65, a natural or a novice, white water rafting in Bali is safe, fun and a breathtaking experience to be enjoyed by the whole family.
Deep valleys and cascading waterfalls surround you as you drift through the lush forest. So grab your oars and get ready to rage with this exhilarating rafting adventure on the spectacular Ayung River. Or if you want a more thrilling experience, head to the Telaga Waja river.

 

4. ATV ride

Pamper your adrenaline on a quad bike as you explore the island’s hidden beauty by riding through the picturesque panorama. Your track depends on the company you choose for your adventure. Some include villages, black sand beaches, rivers, rice terraces, etc. So whatever it is that you prefer, you will have plenty to choose from.

 

5. Surfing

Blessed with 365 days of swell, damn good weather and pristine warm water temperature, the island of the Gods is a favourite surf destination for travellers. With 60 plus surf spots scattered across the island, you will be spoilt for choice. There are plenty of surf instructors available on the beach for an instant lesson. So throw on some board shorts and hit Kuta’s gnarly waves.

6. Jet Surf

 

Flyboarding is old news! Learn to surf without the waves, the coolest new thing to do in Bali; Jet surf is taking the world by storm. Jetsurf is not quite a jet ski, not quite a surfboard, its somewhere in between and it’s one of the best new things to do in Bali. Sadly, it wasn’t available during my trip, but if you are headed to Bali, you shouldn’t miss it.

7. Motocross

Motocross - This Epic World

I can’t ride a scooter to save my life. So, me riding a dirt bike is as much a danger to me as it is to others around me. But if you are a fan, Bali has many riding trails right from fun to extremely hard ones and Motocross tracks where you can slide and fly high.

 

8. Canyon tubing

Canyon Tubing - This Epic World

Hold on tight as you rush down the stream, your heart pumping as you gawk at Bali’s rich flora and fauna. Unlike rafting where you ride in a raft with others, water tubing is a solo ride with an inflatable doughnut-shaped water tube. You go with the rapids as you hold tight inside the tube, and enjoy a few moments of serenity as you flow with the river.

 

9. Cave Diving at Shark Cave

Cave Diving - This Epic World

If you find scuba diving too mainstream, you’ll find cave diving a unique underwater challenge, where you dive into an underwater cave. A form of technical diving, this sport requires highly specialized breathing equipment, intensive training, and may even pose high risk and dangers.
Still, the reward is priceless. In Bali, Shark Cave (part of Gili Biaha dive spot in the eastern part of the island) is a favorite destination for cave diving. And as the name suggests, the cave is home to Bali’s numerous sharks, along with lobsters and butterfly fish. However, you need prior diving experience for this dive due to its depth, low temperature, and strong current.

So ditch the ordinary and go EXTREME because Bali promises to give you a wild experience without burning a hole in your pocket.

    The crux of your writing while appearing reasonable in the beginning, did not settle properly with me after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you managed to make me a believer but only for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do nicely to fill in all those gaps. When you actually can accomplish that, I would definitely end up being fascinated.

But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
