Bali’s beaches and surf culture might be the island’s main claim to fame, but the inland regions, dominated by verdant, terraced rice paddies, remote villages and dense vegetation -- all crisscrossed by quiet roads -- represent Bali at its most beautiful and authentic. While you can certainly explore this other side of Bali from behind the wheel, the view’s better and it’s far more fun from the saddle of a bike.
On a Bali Cycling Eco Tour, you’ll get to spend three hours touring a less-visited portion of this tropical island. The mostly downhill trip takes you past local villages where Balinese families are going about their daily tasks, traditional Hindu temples and bright green rice terraces. A local guide comes along to fill you in on the history and culture of this one-of-a-kind Indonesian island. Finish your morning of cycling with a short Balinese cooking class and a buffet-style lunch of traditional local dishes.
