This tour package combines two great activities for an exciting fun filled day! You’ll hike an active volcano, watch the sunrise over Lake Batur, cycle through Ubuds stunning countryside, gain an insight into traditional Balinese village life and much more.
What to bring:
The day begins early at 2am when you will be picked up at your hotel. From Ubud it is approximately a 1 ½ hour drive to the start point. Before you start the ascent you can enjoy a nice warm cup of tea or coffee and we will give you breakfast to take with you on the trek.
You will meet your local guide who will take care of you for the duration of the trek. Their specialist knowledge of the route will guide you up and down the mountain safely and they will be happy to answer any questions along the way.
After a two hour hike to the summit you will wait for the sunrise and enjoy the magnificent view of Lake Batur and the surrounding mountain scenery and then trek the entirety of the crater before you start your descent.
Your guide will lead you down the descent where your driver will be waiting for you at the start point.
Now, in the light, you can enjoy the beautiful winding drive through the mountains to the starting point of the down hill cycling adventure where you will be led by a member of the Bali Paradise Cycling Tours team.
A short cycle leads us to a coffee plantation. Here we take a short tour of the plantation and enjoy sampling a wide range of tea and coffee flavours. You can also fuel up for the ride by trying a cup of Bali’s famous luwak coffee.
After a while on our bikes we take a short break to see some traditional stone carvings and watch the carvers at work. Then we proceed to Gunung Raung Temple where the guide will explain the significance and history of the temple whilst you enjoy some delicious Balinese snacks.
Now we cycle along a mud path through the beautiful green rice fields and stop to say hello to the cheeky school kids at the local primary school. They love taking selfies with visitors or even playing a game of volleyball!
Nearing the end of the tour, we ride through Bresela village and visit a traditional family compound where you will get an insight into every day village life. You may even get to feed some pigs!
Finally, we reward ourselves for all that hard work with a delicious home cooked lunch at a local homestay.
