Bali Waka Land Rovers Tour
Day Tour with Waka Land Rovers
Our Land Rover Defenders and Land Cruisers depart every morning between 8 am and 8.45 am and will bring you back to your hotel around 5 pm every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.
A day trip through authentic Balinese villages and some of the most picturesque parts of Bali, Waka Land Cruises pick up guests in a land rover equipped with picnic baskets with refreshments. The journey leads you away from the main roads and busy highways on to back roads and through authentic villages.
First stop is a natural stone quarry where villagers have cut the stone out of a dry river bed for generations. From there the trip continues to an agricultural village where you will discover the fragrance of Balinese coffee being roasted and traditional Balinese snacks are freshly prepared for you. Learn to make “canang”, the most important element of Balinese temple offerings and take an optional 30 minutes soft trekking through the rice fields.
Next stop is a trip high into the mountains through the UNESCO-recognized rice terraces of Jatiluwih, followed by a sumptuous Balinese lunch, served in a rainforest restaurant surrounded by giant bamboo. Enjoy a glass of wine, beer, tea or Balinese coffee in the glorious open-air canopy. You can try to play one of Balinese traditional musical instrument “rindik” or just leave it to the expert and simply enjoy the music.
After lunch, you will visit Batukaru temple, a unique sacred mountain sanctuary and royal temple of Tabanan dynasty. It was founded in 11th century by Empu Kuturan, a great Hindu Sage who established six main temples on the island of Bali. Here you can pray with the “canang” that you made, as an offering to the Gods.
