Full description

Head away from the regular tourist itinerary and get off the beaten track on this 2-hour cycling tour through the black lava stones of Mount Batur. Ride for 11 kilometers (almost 7 miles) along a track surrounded by fantastic views of both the ocean and mountains. Experience the altogether different thrill of cycling around this sacred volcano's rim, whether you've already hiked up it or not. Following pickup from your accommodation, enjoy breakfast at a restaurant before the transfer to Bungklambu on the west of the largest lake in Bali, Lake Batur. Pass by the recent volcanic area on the way then hop on to your mountain bike to begin your cycling tour. Ride through rocky black lava left over from past eruptions on the most challenging track that Mount Batur can offer. Follow your local guide through Batur UNESCO Global Geopark, unique for being a “caldera within a caldera”. The two craters present a complete volcanic landscape with walls, cones, geothermal phenomena, a lake, lava flows, and more. Stop at one of the hot springs that fall under this unique terrain to soothe your muscles after the adventure.

Before and after your bike ride, enjoy the exclusive use of Mt. Batur Lounge, the only villa-style lounge around with clean, modern toilets and a comfortable shower facility. After refreshing yourself in the showers, enjoy a hot cup of tea or coffee in the lounge. Next, make your way to Toya Bungkah Village and enjoy the beauty and fresh air of the mountain and the lake. Conclude this journey at a natural hot spring where you can just relax and admire the clear blue water of the spring.

I had a great time. The cycling was a fun way to explore the lava trails and also see a part of local Bali that I do not get to see from a car! Finishing off with a soak in hot spring bath and delicious lunch ensured I had the most satisfying afternoon siesta!!

Wonderful excursion to Mt Badur to cycle the black lava around the caldera, visit a beautiful temple on the lake, enjoy an invigorating soak in the thermal hot springs, delicious lunch at a warung and last stop at a coffee plantation. We were collected from our hotel by Depa, who navigated the traffic to the volcano. There we were met by Wayan and his brother Jero, who took us on a fabulous and informative bike ride along the black lava of the caldera through to an amazing temple overlooking the lake. Depa then drove us to the hot springs where we relaxed in various pools overlooking the lake and caldera, before lunch and the final stop for a coffee and tea flight at the plantation. We had an amazing day and felt we discovered a part of Bali we hadn’t seen before. Our driver and bike guides were fantastic and we highly recommend them and this tour.

Great bike tour! The guide was really great! We were 5 including our 8 year old daughter. The bike was a little too big, but one of the guides helped him on the big descents. We end with the hot baths, a real treat. There is even a slide for the enjoyment of children!
