Beautiful sunrise over famous Balinese landmark Tegalalang rice terraces. Magic sun rays, amazing light.

Bali, Indonesia

In the last decade or so this little Indonesian paradise has become the ultimate spiritual destination for travellers looking to heal the soul. With fame, however, comes overcrowding, tourist traps and inauthentic experiences. Some even say the magic is beginning to wear off with Bali, but that’s not true if you know where to look. Our immersive 12-day itinerary embraces every facet of local life. We’ll take part in a sacred Balinese offering, leaving our creations in Batukaru Temple, before trekking to a remote village via rice fields and Banyan trees. You’ll get to try FlyHigh Yoga, take an authentic Balinese cooking class and cap off the trip by partaking in a spiritual Balinese blessing ceremony. If that doesn’t impact you deep down, then the island’s serene landscapes will. We’ll swim in Banyumala Twin Waterfalls, snorkel in the Gili Islands and trek to the summit of Mount Batur at sunrise – a truly soul-stirring experience.

Trinity Gergeti Church, Kazbegi, Georgia

Georgia, in the Caucasus Mountains

Never underestimate the power Mother Nature has over you. Georgia, nestled high in the Caucasus on the fringes of Europe and Asia, is an incredible example of that. The three-hour hike up to Gergeti Trinity Church, perched high in the Caucasus and dwarfed by towering snow-clad mountains, is biblical. Even the greatest sceptic out there would find it hard not to be moved by such a beautiful place of worship in such an unspeakably hardy location. If forest bathing is more your vibe, then Lagodekhi National Park might have a greater impact. On our trip you’ll also get to embrace the ancient local culture, from its food and wine to dining ceremonies and traditional sulphur baths. You’ll even get the chance to learn about Georgian cuisine at a chef’s actual home – a perfect example of the warm hospitality you can expect here.

Angkor Wat at sunrise

Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Sometimes the sheer majesty of humankind’s most epic creations can inspire reflection and perspective. That’s certainly the case with Angkor Wat, considered the world’s largest religious structure, which for centuries was a place of worship for practitioners of Hinduism and later Buddhism. The grandeur is impossible to ignore, but if anything the spiritual power of this place has only increased with the overgrowth of vegetation, particularly striking in surrounding Siem Reap. Nature reclaiming the land, time taking a temple and turning it into something even more special. You’ll get to visit at sunrise on our Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam trip – an experience you will never forget.

Golgulsa Temple in Gyeongju-si, South Korea.

South Korea

South Korea has one of the oldest and most respected spirituality cultures on the planet. Forest bathing is huge here, as are the phenomenon of temple stays. You’ll get to experience one for yourself on this 10-day trip, which includes a night at Golgulsa Temple. It’s a remarkable place, built into the mountain caves near Gyeongju in the sixth century, watched over by a large stone Buddha. You’ll get to have a traditional vegetarian lunch before learning all about temple life through archery, martial arts and meditation classes. It’s a truly unique experience, and a fascinating insight into a totally different, ancient way of life.
