Cultural bike rides in spiritual Ubud

Centrally located on Bali, Ubud – the island’s cultural and spiritual Mecca – is perfect for guided or unguided bike rides. This is the ideal way to experience the real Bali. The highlights below can easily be combined with a bike tour.

The Elephant Safari Park lies approximately 15 kilometres north of Ubud in the village of Taro. The park is home to the largest herd of Sumatran elephants in the world, one of the rarest and most endangered species. Visitors may feed or even ride the animals. As a member of the World Zoo Association, the park meets all the international standards for animal care.

Embrace the real Balinese way of life

Approximately 17 kilometres further north, it becomes clear why the bike is the perfect mode of transportation here. Numerous temples, fragrant aromas from the Balinese kitchen and artists carving wooden artefacts by the side of road abound; it is a wonderful way to experience the authentic Balinese way of life. The winding roads lead to beautiful rice paddies in Payangan, a great spot to spend a few hours walking through the bright green rice terraces and to enjoy the view of the Ayung-River. If you have any time left, be sure to visit the Pura Dalem Segara temple before continuing on with your ride.

Breakfast at the Batur volcano

Continue another 20 kilometres further north and the active Batur volcano comes into view. Experienced guides depart at 4:00 am to lead visitors on a 2-hour hike to the top for a spectacular view of the sunrise. For the grand finale, enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast. The hot steam that pours out of the openings in the volcano is used to cook eggs and bananas. An unforgettable experience.
