Bali’s beaches, surfing and diving are always what spring to mind when you think of this island paradise. But to think that this Indonesian gem is just a fun-in-the-sun spot is to do it a disservice. On this epic cycling adventure you will uncover the real essence of beautiful Bali that few tourists ever get to truly delight in.

To really delve deep into what makes Bali tick, cycling is the best way to do it as you get off the beaten track and push your wheels out into untouched villages and get to meet the locals. Accompanied by your local charming guides, it is experiences like this which really set the tour apart. You can come face-to-face with villagers and discover their way of life. These are true wow moments.

Bali boasts some of the most spectacular and varied landscapes in the world and on this rapid but action packed cycling tour you will witness many of them. The trip is begun at the base of Mount Batukaru before pedaling off downhill and gliding alongside the verdant Jatiluwih Rice Terraces.

Every way you look, glorious photo opportunities spring up particularly when you stop at the famous Tanah Lot Temple. Rated as Bali’s most beautiful temple, it’s easy to see why. Set on an offshore rock formation where the rolling seas and stunning backdrop are a photographer’s dream. Continuing with the dramatic landscapes, begin day two at the rim of the active volcano, Mount Batur. The riding only gets better as you slide your tires through back roads and bow to the mesmerising Balinese countryside. The fantastic trails connect so many villages and you’ll stop to learn about the locals’ lives as well as the importance of religion at one of the many temples.

The final stop is Bali’s cultural center for traditional arts and crafts – Ubud. Surrounded by dense rainforest and numerous rice paddies, this beautiful place is ideal for exploring and you may recognise it from having been featured in the film ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. It is a perfect spot for the final ride on the last day before going separate ways and full of incredible memories.
