Kintamani cycling is a great way to experience the active village life of the Kintamani region, as well as getting close to the natural landscapes of the the beautiful region between Kintamani and Ubud.
|Type||Full Day – Adventure/Active|
EXPLORE… inland Bali up close and personal by cycling from Kintamani to Ubud with a guide and all equipment provided. After a leisurely drive to Kintamani, taking in undulating lush green forest, picturesque rice paddies and quaint villages, view the vast volcanic caldera known as Kintamani, and its majestic crater lake, Lake Batur over breakfast before donning your gear and hitting the road.
BEGIN… your cycling experience from Kintamani around mid-morning. Including breaks and lunch stop, expect to arrive in Ubud 4-5 hours later where you’re driver will be waiting for you to return you to your hotel.
ENJOY…the 26km challenge up and down trails from asphalt roads to off road as you follow a mostly downhill route through the pleasant mountain and hill country between Kintamani and Ubud, passing rice paddies, orchards, rice fields, and through quaint rural villages.
ENGAGE…with locals – expect genuine smiles, waves and laughs along the way, and don’t be surprised by the odd enounter with a lembu! (white cows which are considered sacred and are fed and protected by the Balinese).
WONDER…at the sights and oddities of everyday rural village life – chickens and dogs wandering at large, impossibly laden vehicles, structures and people – perhaps a ridiculously large pig trussed for market on a ridiculously small vehicle, religious ceremonies – in preparation or procession, from small to an entire community event – anything is possible!
REJUVENATE… with a refreshing break at a restaurant stop in a picturesque rural setting before continuing on to Ubud where your driver will be waiting.
CREATE…your perfect day. For instance, if Kintamani cycling all the way to Ubud seems a little too much, we can arrange cycle and equipment hire for you if you’d just like to try Kintamani cycling for an hour or two on your own in the nearby surrounds.
On the other hand, if you’re very active, you might like to combine a cycling and hiking experience over two days. For instance, you can do the Kintamani cycling tour in reverse, starting at Ubud with an overnight stay at Kintamani, prior to a Kintamani hiking tour.
And because your Bali Tour Magic driver remains at your disposal for your entire booking, it’s easy to pre-arrange meeting points along your Kintamani cycling route. That way, should the undulating terrain prove too much, we just transfer the bikes to the vehicle and you can drive the remainder of the way.
A more leisurely option would be to do the Kintamani cycling tour from Ubud, stay overnight at Kintamani, breakfast at a restaurant overlooking the Volcano caldera, and explore the region by vehicle, taking in Kintamani tour highlights on your return to Kuta.
