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. Next, make your way to Toya Bungkah Village and enjoy the beauty and fresh air of the mountain and the lake.

What people are saying about Kintamani

A great and well planned tour! We liked that it was different and off the beaten sunrise trek path. We cycled through the black lava, around the island to the temple, and ended in the hot springs. A great way to end a morning of exercise, nature, and culture. Everything was well organised and varied, and Wayan and Kadek were very helpful and patient. Thanks for a wonderful time!

Day to the top, a very kind guide with some words of French. Great bikes and hot water pools are perfect. Small detour to Tegallalang thanks to the driver. In short I recommend this activity, you will not be disappointed

Overall one of my favorite day of my holiday. Both the driver Edy and the tour guide Wayland were very friendly and professional. They pretty much let me go at my own pace and just enjoy a good time

the trip was great. Our guide Wayan was very positive and excellent, he offered to take us to extra places on the way that were outside the plan. The car very comfortable too!

We highly enjoyed this trip. Everybody was motivated to make this great experience possible. Thank you!
