Backyard Travel, the online boutique tour operator has announced its new offering of exploring the culture of Bali’s spiritual heartland, Ubud. The company that specialises in insider tours throughout Asia has now initiated a five-day programme that begins with an exclusive traditional experience – a ceremony with respected local shaman Pak Ketut.
In the following days, guests experience more of Bali’s stunning natural beauty with a trek through the mountains and rice paddy fields and learn how residents are trying to preserve the local environment with a tour of the city’s sustainability initiatives. Visits to an artisan jewellery studio, the workshop of designer John Hardy, an organic chocolate factory and a traditional spa for a lomi lomi massage are also part of this unforgettable tour.
“There’s something truly enchanting about Bali, it’s one of our most popular destinations, and has so much to discover, even on repeat visits” said Trystan Trestchenkoff, general manager of Backyard Travel.
