Surfers and wildlife enthusiasts can rejoice as they may now join a heli-surfing tour to Grajagan, a surf break in the Alas Purwo National Park in East Java.

Popularly known as G-Land, Grajagan is a popular surfing spot in East Java, which can be reached in a half-day boat ride from Bali.

Initiated by the Four Seasons Resorts Bali and surfing services provider Tropicsurf, the 45-minute helicopter day trip will depart from Bali and land on the edge of the Alas Purwo National Park – exactly in front of G-Land's waves. Besides surfing, guests can explore the wildlife at the national park, which is home to pristine jungle and untouched beaches.

“Our location in Jimbaran gives surfers convenient access to Bali’s best breaks, but Tropicsurf’s new heli-surfing tours take it to the next level, giving guests the experience of a lifetime,” Four Seasons Resorts Bali general manager Uday Rao said in a press release on Wednesday.

Available exclusively for the hotel's guests, the tour is priced at US$10,000 including the charter of a private helicopter that can accommodate up to four guests, transport of surfboards, transfers to and from Bali’s heliport, the charter of a private speedboat at G-Land to access various waves, a surf guide, personal coaching and water safety and insurance.
