Authentic Villages, Shrines
and Homes by Bicycle

Pedal through traditional villages in the heartland of Bali for a glimpse into a way
of life that has not changed for centuries. Explore authentic villages,
meet friendly locals and discover sacred shrines.


Cycle through the heartland of Bali and witness firsthand a way of life that has not changed for centuries. Pedal alongside rice paddies, past picturesque farmland and along unmarked roads that lead to quaint rural villages. Find out about ancient traditions and vibrant customs that are very much alive in these unspoiled hamlets.

Spend some time chatting with locals, many of whom still live in traditional Balinese family compounds. These walled enclosures are home to many generations of the same family. The design follows traditional Balinese architecture and features a breezy, outdoor living area, family temple and intricately decorated doorways and main gate. They offer a fascinating glimpse into the weaving together of social requirements, family status, religion and architecture.

The driver will collect you from your hotel and take you to the village of Sangeh. After a thorough safety briefing, prepare your bike and then hit the road to find authentic Bali. Cycle past fields where farmers and their buffalos tend to their crops, and wave at small children playing in the streets. You will stop en route to stretch your legs with a visit to a traditional Balinese compound. Wander through the village of Carangsari and maybe even chat with the local villagers.

There’s time to explore Pura Dalem Temple, set within the forest, before continuing to Gerana and Taman villages surrounded by verdant rice fields.

After about 16 km of cycling, you will arrive at Taman Mumbul. Explore the temple and photograph the small, sacred shrine set within a beautiful, clear lake surrounded by green fields and trees. This is a tranquil place to relax for a while, feeding the fish in the lake.

Refreshments and lunch are provided. Throughout the tour, your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about the villages, sites and shrines that you pass by. At the end of the day, your driver will take you back to your hotel.
