Official update from Lapoint surf camp Canggu during volcanic eruption

Mount Agung, an active volcano in Karangasem Regency in East Bali, has emitted ash from small eruptions since 21 November 2017.
 
As a result, Ngurah Rai international airport in Bali closed November 27 before reopening November 29 at 3 pm local time after the Volcano Observatory Notice for Aviation downgraded the situation from a Red alert to Orange. As of today there’s still delays on certain flights so we advise all travelers to contact the airline or tour operator for up­to­date information on your flight(s).
 
Luckily, situated on the south coast of Bali, the day­to­day activities and program at Lapoint surf camp Canggu has been unaffected by this situation.
All aspects of the camp is­ and has been­ running as normal; from surf lessons to airport­ and hotel transfers.
 
As of today, 6th December 2017, there has not been issued any travel advice for Indonesia from either Norwegian or Swedish governments.
Regardless of government issued travel advice, as a rule of thumb, we strongly advise that all guests monitor local media reports, follow the instructions
of local authorities and stay outside the exclusion zone around the crater.
