Indonesia: Bali Bike, Hike & Snorkel

This 8 day adventure is designed to showcase all this beautiful island has got to offer. We will ride the very best trails of Bali, witness one of the most spectacular sunrises on the planet on top of an active volcano, and snorkel shipwreck in the coral reef. Along the way we will visit the Jatiluwih rice terraces, explore the Tana Lot Temple, bike through countless local villages, and relax on black sand beaches. The local cycling guides will partner with BikeTourKorea staff to guide you along secret trails and back roads. Moderate biking experience is required for some of the trails, but we always start high and finish low for extra downhill fun.   All along the way we will be enjoying photography stops with a professional photographer as one of our guides. We will have a Korean speaking guide to assist with English to Korean translation. Join us and visit this tropical destination while enjoying a unique cycling experience.
