Discover the real Bali on a cycling trip across Indonesia’s ‘Island of the Gods’.
It’s all about two wheels in Bali, and this action-packed cycling trip takes in some of the island’s best spots in the highlands and on the coast. Hit the road in Ubud and wind your way south, into a world of lush green rice fields, smouldering volcanoes, family-run warungs, community projects, caves, temples and tiny villages. With the chilled-out beaches of Lovina and Sanur on the horizon, and a slew of adventure activities on offer throughout – such as a hike up Mt Batur – this is an unforgettable journey for cyclists and adventurers alike.
Escape the tourist hordes and cycle through the island's heart, from the green hills of Ubud to the laidback beach towns of Lovina and Sanur.
Cycling’s not the only activity on offer. Take the chance to hike up Mt Batur, visit hidden caves, soak in hot springs, and enjoy some watersports on the coast
As well as beautiful temples, visit less-known villages such as Trunyan, whose astounding burial tradition makes use of a mysterious ‘magic tree’
Stop in at Bumi Sehat, an Intrepid Foundation project dedicated to the welfare of pregnant mothers and newborn children in the community
Feast on the most authentic Balinese cuisine, prepared lovingly by unsung kitchen masters such as Lovina’s Bu Wayan
Relax and unwind on the unique black sand beaches of Lovina, the perfect place to rest your bones after a few days on the bike

This was an amazing experience and afforded us a wonderful opportunity to explore and learn about Bali, it’s culture and the lovely friendly people. There is a lot of up and down - and the cycling can be tough in the heat. But the bus is always there and a bus pass comes in handy at times. Overall a very memorable very enjoyable holiday.

This Intrepid trip round Bali is a fantastic way to learn a little about this beautiful and interesting island and people. Mind you the hills can be steep but the good news is every up comes with a down attached and the downs are longer than the ups, wahay! The support crew are great. The itinerary has some interesting stops of which the night climb to watch the sunrise from Mt Agung is one - closely followed by the hot spring dip at the Purple Elephant to ease the aches and pains. Lovely! Whether you enjoy the internal window to the bathroom at the Ubud hotel will depend how well you know your room mate!
