Hike and Bike Mt Batur
- 2 Days
Ever wondered what a volcano looks like up close? Ever wanted to hike up a volcano? Ever wanted to cycle through the lava stream of a volcano? Ever wanted to bathe in the rejuvenating hot springs of a volcano? Ever wanted to spend the night with a beautiful volcano as a backdrop? Ever wanted to do some great mountain biking in Bali? If you answered yes to all the above questions then this two day getaway will be one of the highlights of your holiday in Bali.
Pick up from your hotel at 7.30 am in the morning and then you will directly transfer by the support car to the central volcano in the island. On the way up we will visit a local coffee plantation and the Pura Puncak Penulisan Temple, then continue transfer to the starting point. Today's ride goes around the outer rim of the volcano with amazing views of the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other. You may expect some of Bali's best single track riding! Later we descend into the caldera and ride through the black lava stream where the latest eruption of Mount Batur happened in the year 2000. After the ride we have an included visit to the local hot springs of Toya Devasa. In the late afternoon we transfer back to the rim of the volcano where our hotel is located. The views from the hotel are amazing.
Our trekking guide will come and pick you up at your accommodation around 03am for the hike to the summit of Mount Batur. To witness Mount Batur at sunrise is to experience one of the most endearing displays of the earth's eternal awakening. It takes about 2,5 hours to reach the summit where we will provide a light breakfast with coffee or tea. You will be back at your hotel around 9am and around 10am we start our mountain bike program. We will cycle mostly downhill on a wide mixture of terrain all the way down to Ubud where our adventure ends. From here we can transfer you back to your accommodation in the South or you can spend the night in Ubud. **END OF TOUR – END OF SERVICE**
Tours are suitable for riders with good fitness level. Previous mountain bike experience is recommended. Trail surfaces may include uneven terrain and narrow trails, some single track, with occasional obstacles (roots, rocks, sand). Hills and descents are moderate and require some skill. Riders with minimal mountain bike experience but who have road biking skills or a strong fitness level, along with an adventurous spirit, should be suitable for an intermediate tour.
We cycle on a very wide mixture of terrain on anything from single track, jeep tracks, sandy roads, broken tarmac roads and many more. You should have reasonable bike skills to be able to navigate the varying terrain. You should wear comfortable shoes appropriate for cycling for this ride.
