Tourists may be dazzled by Bali’s beaches, but its inland regions are where Balinese culture and spirituality are most keenly felt. And while you can explore the Indonesian isle from behind the wheel, the views of rice paddies, verdant vegetation, and remote villages are far better from the saddle of a bike. Here’s what you can expect from cycling tours of Bali.
- Cruise countryside trails before taking part in a cooking class in an inland village.
- Choose a low-exertion option, either an easy-to-manage downhill route or an e-bike tour.
- See the bamboo forest in Kubu, the active volcano Mount Batur, and a monkey sanctuary during a tour of south Bali’s Sangeh area.
- Rest your legs during a pit stop at a Balinese guesthouse, where you can try fresh tropical fruit and typical Balinese fare.
- Explore the rice fields and rural villages of east Bali and uplands during bike tours from Kuta, Seminyak, Nusa Dua, Sanur, or Ubud.
- Combine a cycling tour with a rafting adventure on the Ayung River for the ultimate active day out, with the option to add on a relaxing spa experience.
- Rise for an early morning bike tour and pedal to a prime position to watch the Balinese sunrise.
- Cycle along the Sanur coast, stopping for breakfast, coffee, and market snacks during a food-focused cycling tour.
