Bali, an island in Indonesia, is an adventure-lover's paradise. In addition to stunning natural beauty and incredible, luxurious resorts, Bali's rivers, jungles, canyons, and islands are ripe with opportunities to get your hearts pumping. From land to sea, and even canyon, these are our favorite adventure honeymoon activities in this Indonesian honeymoon dreamland.
Tucked into Bali's tropical jungles are rivers, streams, and sparkling waterfalls plunging off forested cliffsides and canyons. You can explore, rappel, and splash in these refreshing and beautiful natural edens with a waterfall canyoning trip in Bali. Even if you're a complete beginner, your guides will be with you every step of the way. Rappelling down waterfalls into jungled canyons is a pulse-pounding way to spend a honeymoon day.
Mount Batur is a sacred volcano reaching high above the clouds, overlooking the vast green jungles and perfect blue waters of a sparkling caldera lake in the foothills. The sunsets atop Mount Batur are unbelievable, but even if you do a normal day hike, you'll be blown away by the views from the top.
Bali's rivers are a white-water thrill. A rafting trip is a great way to see the jungles up-close and personal while having the time of your life! Your raft guide will show you how it's done, keeping you safe and shouting commands to help you and the other rafters steer your craft through the churning, splashing rapids. When you're done with the adventure, have a beachside meal and cold drink and relax on the sand for the rest of the day.
ATV tours have you speeding along beaches, rice paddies, and sacred temples at top speed on 4x4s. This action-packed way of seeing the island is as pulse-pounding as tours get, and allows you to stop at some of Bali's most picturesque vantage points to soak up the scenery.
Hidden canyons tucked into the Balinese jungle make for enchanting tubing rides. Not as pulse-pounding as a white water rafting trip, but an even better way to see Bali's jungles up close, tubing takes a slower pace to let you absorb all the beauty of Bali. You'll encounter incredible wildlife like monkeys and colorful birds as you expore the lush interior of the island on an inflatable tube. The pace is chiller, and the comfort of the tube allows you to slow down and soak it all in. When the river gets fast, however, you'll have bursts of adrenaline as you zoom along rapids, twists and turns, and mini-cataracts to give you some extra excitement.
Snorkel & Scuba Dive
Bali's beaches are a natural playland for snorkelers, and the scuba diving is world-class. Explore underwater gardens where life abounds. Plants and animals populating the universe beneath the water's surface give you a whole new world to explore. If you've only explored the land of Bali without dipping your eyes below the ocean surface, you haven't seen the half of this Southeast Asian island's beauty!
Stepped rice paddies, jungles, villages, ancient temples, sacred mountaintops...cycling through Bali is an adventure that fit couples won't want to miss. Pedal along palm-lined pathways flanked by bright tropical flowers as native parrots soar overhead. Pass by rice paddies, verdant jungles, and centuries-old temples as you discover a gorgeous nautral landscape and a culture rich with ancient heritage.
Whether you're experienced surfers who just want to rent your boards and get pitted, or complete newbies to wave riding, Bali's surfing is world-class. Depending on where on the island you go, you can find smaller or bigger waves, so there's something for all skilll levels. The Bukit Peninsula's wave-chopping reefs create prime water for advanced surfers, while the gentle rolling waves of Bali's lagoons make perfect beginner terrain.
Novices can book a couple's lesson and learn to hang ten, and outfitters along the coast can rent all the gear to couples who just want to hit the waves!
Paragliding is a thrilling way to see a landscape from above...and what a stunning landscape Bali is. Strapped to an instructor, you'll sprint off the edge of a cliff only to soar through the air instead of falling. The instructor will guide the parasail so all you have to do is enjoy the insane views.
