Trip Itinerary

Transfer from the airport to hotel in Sanur.

The rim of the Batur crater is where we start today's ride with spectacular views of Mt. Abang and Mt. Agung in the distance. Cycling on jeep tracks and easy single track to lunch, we then continue to the base of the volcano and ride on narrow sandy trails before crossing the latest lava field.

The edge of the Batur Crater is again our starting point, but today we head to the east coast. After a nice downhill there'll be some climbing before an exhilarating descent by dry river beds and through cashew-nut plantations.

We cycle a reasonably flat route around the side of Mt. Agung on single track paths which weave their way to the ruins of a water palace at Jungutan. The afternoon ride is through some of the finest rice paddy scenery in Bali

Today's ride starts high up on the slopes of Mt. Agung and descends with spectacular views along the south coast on a clear day. We weave our way through plantations and stone carving villages until we reach Muncan where we'll transfer to Ubud.

In the morning we'll explore the rice paddies and off road trails around Ubud by bike. The afternoon is free to go for an optional rafting trip or to relax by the pool.

Transfer to Kuta for extension nights or airport to catch departure flight.

This trip is recommended for riders with some off-road experience, but you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy it. The only real requirement is a sense of adventure!

Although this tour only covers around 170 kilometers in 4 full and 1 half cycling day, it can still be quite challenging. Because flat land in Bail is almost non-existent, the experience is made up entirely of off-road excursions on a series of challenging surfaces including forest trails, red mud hard-pack, volcanic sand, lava cobbles, gravel and broken tarmac roads. There are sections of single-track in every ride, but no long rocky or rooty sections or big drops. As far as gradients are concerned, all the trails except one have an overall down-hill element to them (in other words they finish at a lower altitude than the start). A few steep ascents and descents are also part of the program, but these are normally short and sharp.

Accommodation is varied and includes charming cottages and comfortable hotels.
