Bali bike ride through the bamboo forest

Bali Hai Adventure Itinerary
(Bike Tours)

Our unique combination of countryside cycling activities, sightseeing and authentic cultural tour will take you far away from the regular tourist itinerary and “off the beaten track” deep into rural Bali where you will be able to see bamboo forest, traditional villages, ancient temples, local customs and rituals as well as age-old traditions of Balinese people.

This bicycle tour is a full day tour, feel free to stop at any point, anywhere and any time to enjoy all interesting things you may find along the way, taking some photos, recording videos, interact with local villagers, greet balinese children or just to take a rest. Our friendly and informative guides will be pleased to help you with anything you want to know.

During the tours, at some points it will be difficult for you to take the picture of yourself when riding the bike. But don't worry, our guides will do it for you so you can stay focus on enjoying your tour. If you are lucky being accompanied by our special photographer (biking along with you during the tour), best possible photos will be waiting for you. Your 'action photos' will be sent to your email for free. Personal photographer on request is also available (extra charge may apply).
