My name is Ryan Canty and I am a professional photographer and videographer from Montana, USA. I specialize in capturing fleeting moments in the wild and seeking exciting terrain. I am thrilled to connect with you on this adventure-packed trip through the best of Bali. We will have the opportunity to take in brand new surroundings and make lasting memories both in front of and behind the lens.


Arrive in Bali and transfer to your hotel in Ubud. Ubud is centrally located and known as the artistic centre of Bali, making for an ideal place to begin your adventure. Spend today settling in and exploring before a festive welcome dinner.

Today is more than just an adrenaline-pumping drive by 4WD, it’s an opportunity to explore the vibrant nature and rich culture of the area. Pass through stunning rice fields and lovely villages where you will stop to take in the sights and interact with the people who live there. During this trip, you will also be visiting Snake Fruit “Salak” plantations where you can pick your own fruit and enjoy them afterward with fresh coconut. Climb up (by car) to the top of a massive hill to enjoy a picturesque panoramic view featuring Mt. Agung and if you are lucky, Mt. Rinjani. You will stop at a village where you can witness the production of local rice-based wines. Then you will head to a second stunning outlook point where you can see the expanse of the eastern shore.

Then, onwards through the east of Bali to your comfortable hotel in the quiet coastal village of Amed.

Find yourself enveloped in a remote paradise at your lovely hotel on the quiet beach of Amed. Today you will have the opportunity to soak up the sun and enjoy exploring the ocean. See if you can spot the shipwreck from the Second World War found just under the water’s surface on a snorkelling tour, then enjoy free time on the beach.

After a relaxing morning, a spectacular drive along the coast and over the mountains will bring you to the cozy coastal town of Sanur, where you will spend your last night of the trip in a nice hotel with a swimming pool and located nearby the beach.
