Downhill Cycling Itinerary

You'll start your morning by being picked up in Ubud at 8am in a comfortable air-conditioned car before stopping off at the famous rice-terraces in Tegallalang. On the way up to Mount Batur, enjoy a luwak coffee at a local coffee plantation, followed by some light breakfast and the breathtaking views of Mount Batur and Lake Batur.

After a safety talk, you'll familiarise yourself with your bicycle before setting off downhill along quiet, little-used roads to soak up some of Bali's most beautiful, natural landscapes.

Take a break from the road and walk through some lush rice paddies where you'll learn all about rice-growing on Bali, pay a visit to a woodcarving workshop, and finish your trip with lunch in a traditional Balinese home.

You'll be back in your hotel between 3pm and 4pm.
