Our tour begins with that we will be picked up at our hotels at dawn in the morning and heading are set against the “holy” Batu mountain, where the cycling starts at (900 m.a.s.l).

After conquering a few hills we ride through the breathtaking Jatiluwih Valley to explore the stunning rice terraces that  are listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site.

This cultural landscape, known as Subak, is a manifestation of the Tri Hita Karana Philosophy, which brings together the spiritual, human and natural realms.

After a lunch break, we are back in the saddle, as we roll through beautiful landscapes of tropical jungle, green valleys and traditional Balinese villages.

At a village on our way we pull over at a traditional compound to experience the renowned Balinese hospitality and unique aspects of traditional Balinese life.

We end our trip at the natural wellness center, where the bodies get soaked in a therapeutically relaxing and rejuvenating mineral bath, the hot water bubbling up from deep within the Earth.

If you find it too hot, the cooling spring water is an
option.

Whatever you choose, refreshing coconut water is served by the river bank.

I am so grateful that I did this bike tour; with my girlfriends and with Ingela as our guide. We got to see a part of Bali that is rarely seen by tourists: learned about the culture, interacted with some locals in their home, saw parts of a temple being handcrafted, and admired the beautiful scenery. For me, it was a spiritual awakening that has ignited a new passion of self-healing and discovery. My heart is so full! Thank you!
