What are
we doing?


Canyoning combines rappelling down waterfalls, hiking, swimming, cliff jumping, and navigation through the jungles of Bali. I first experienced canyoning in the Southwest deserts of America, and have since continued all over the world, and Bali has some of the best canyons. Guaranteed to test your courage and bring the group together!


Bali has some of the best surf breaks in the world, perfect for beginner to advanced surfers. Surfing is one of the fastest ways to enter a flow state of optimal experience.


Bali is one of the best places in the world to practice yoga. We will use yoga throughout the retreat to balance our intense focus and adventure activities.

Personal and Business Development

We will take a look at some of the key areas to success in life: decision making, world view, confidence, relationships, and fulfillment. We will look at specific strategies for how we can get what we want in life and business.

Volcano Climbing and Camping

We will summit Bali’s second tallest volcano and spend the night on top. Along the way, our guide will show us edible plants and jungle temples.

What People Are Saying About AdventureQuest

My favorite part of Adventure Quest was the caving, because we got to get dirty and muddy, and I am not a get dirty and muddy kind of girl. It was so valuable to have a group of entrepreneurial minds together so everyone could give insight and feedback. I learned valuable tool and techniques to get the core of my purpose.

“The setting and lodge were both amazing! Having our own private waterfall was so special, and we saw the most beautiful colors on our sunset hike. Being out in the jungle was the cherry on top.”

Heidi Van Campen

AdventureQuest Bali 2016 Attendee

“I recommend AdventureQuest to anyone who is adventurous and entrepreneurial minded. If you enjoy business strategy, learning, and working on your plans in a beautiful setting, this is right up your alley! Derek is very well prepared and professional during the coaching sessions. I would have to say my favorite part was the rock climbing”

Dave Stelmacki

AdventureQuest 2017 Attendee

“My favorite part of AdventureQuest is the group aspect. You learn so much more about yourself in a group setting. Derek is a combination of teacher, leader, and counselor. The surprising part was his level of spirituality, grace, and warmth that Derek brings”.
