Island of the Gods

Mountain Bike Holiday in Bali, Indonesia

This is a unique riding adventure where rides take you on a cultural journey into the mountains and hills of authentic Bali. Each day you'll pedal past iconic hillside temples, along vibrant green rice paddies and fragrant flower-petal offerings placed everywhere. The riding is a fun mix of singletrack, doubletrack and dirt roads that link up remote villages and settlements through regions that see few tourists. At the end of the ride you'll experience what Bali is known for: it's beaches, surfing, diving, yoga, tasty cuisine, great hotels and it's generous and genuinely warm inhabitants. Riding Bali is so much more than just a fun-in-the-sun riding adventure, it's an experience, a mood, a tropical state of mind.
