Mount Batur: Private Volkswagen Jeep Volcano Safari

1. Mount Batur: Private Volkswagen Jeep Volcano Safari

Your own private driver will pick you up bright and early in your classic VW all terrain jeep for a day of adventure at Bali’s Mount Batur volcano. Drive through the scenic beauty of Bali’s rice terraces and lush vegetation. Stop at Penelokan, where you will reach the rim of a huge caldera, 14 kilometers across, with a breathtaking view of Mount Batur. Continue your safari via the truck route into the old crater, where you will encounter huge lava flows which have covered most of the vegetation. On the edge of the caldera there are big trees which are inhabited by wild monkeys. From here you will climb up a lava dune with a beautiful view of the mountain and the black lava. Your guide will explain about the thirty million years of history that formed this area and surroundings. After an adventurous drive around the mountain, you will stop to meet the local famers on your way to the natural hot springs. Soothe away all your aches and pains at the natural hot springs of Batur. You will have a buffet lunch before continuing the trip.

What people are saying about Bali

I had the most fantastic time with my guide Froggy. He was punctual, polite, and I felt very safe travelling with him as a solo female traveller. The trip was good fun. I enjoyed seeing the black lava, the hot springs were okay (I wouldn’t go back but I can now say I’ve done them) and lunch was yummy. The VW convertible was so much fun and the drive was incredibly scenic. A great day out!

Great day at Mount Batur with our guide Froggy who was friendly and very well organised. There was good flexibility for us to decide how much time we would spend at each stop on the itinerary and all stages of the day ran smoothly. The open top vintage VW's were great fun and really nice way to experience the beautiful scenery around Ubud.

we had a good time, the view of the sunrise is wonderful and it was a good experience to go there by jeep. Special mention for our guide who took the time to explain everything to us and who pay attention to taking care of the customers. I recommend Axelle and Kevin

This is a must do in Bali ! The view was so magnificent and the hot spring was so enjoyable with the cold weather. Our guide Froggy also went above and beyond to make us feel as comfortable as possible throughout the ride.

Ketut was our driver to night time safari Bali. Brilliant service. 10/10. Will be booking more trips with Ketut. Very friendly and reliable. Thankyou Ketut
