Bicycle Drive through the Villages explores Bali by cycling downhill – you see genuine Balinese traditional life and the unique culture of Bali while taking in the beauty of its exotic panoramas.
We begin our tour by taking you to the spectacular beauty of Kintamani and on the way there, we are going to have a short stop at a coffee plantation to taste various kinds of herbal coffees including the well-known Luwak coffee.
Afterwards we head to the serenity of Kintamani, nestled high on a volcanic crater rim, where you will enjoy your morning tea or coffee with a light breakfast overlooking to the stunning view of Mount Batur and its splendid crater lake.
After having breakfast we are off on our mountain bikes, on our bicycle drive through the villages, enjoying 4 hours downhill cycling throughout the wonderful and tranquil back roads of rural Bali passing through native villages, seeing classic Balinese daily life and enjoying various spectacular landscapes, all the way down through verdant forested areas, tropical fruit plantations and ancient Balinese temples. If we chance upon a ceremony you will able to witness it directly.
We also have several stopping areas, as well as visiting a Balinese house where you can meet and chat with local families and their adorable children. Our friendly guide will be very happy to explain each part of the traditional house inside.
We will have a stop at a traditional warung, see wood carvers and Balinese painters at work, then rest under a peaceful banyan tree, recharging your energy for a while with mineral water and fresh tropical fruit.
