Some people come to Bali for the beach and beers experience. Some come for the luxury resorts. Others want to get away from the tourism and see what Bali’s like off the beaten path. If your family are the exploring types Bali Lost Adventure can take you to places you would never see without their local expertise.
Bali Lost Adventure cycling tours take place in Tabanan regency, where most of Bali’s rice is grown. In fact, you’ll be cycling close to Bali’s famous UNESCO World Heritage rice terraces at Jatihluwih.
The tour is half a day and can be started in the morning or afternoon. You’ll cycle 25 kilometres during the day but most of this is downhill and manageable for just about anyone who can ride a bicycle. There are also lots of stops along the way to admire the landscape, take photos and visit with local people.
If you book your tour on a school day you can even drop in and say hi to all the kids! Some guests even bring along school supplies and small gifts to give to the children.
The tour finishes at a local restaurant where you can try some Balinese dishes and have a cold drink. Taking in the views of the rice paddies and river is the perfect way to end your tour of Bali’s beautiful countryside.
Kids from 1 – 5 years old are welcome to join in an infant seat on an adult bicycle. From 6 years kids can ride on their own or on a donkey bike attached to an adult’s bike. For more information on Bali Lost Adventure’s cycling tours click HERE.
Most people never get out on foot in Bali. Whether it’s the fear of getting lost or the worry of the heat, people, locals included, just don’t walk in Bali. Luckily, Bali Lost Adventure guides are expert trekkers and will take out to explore places many will never see.
Trekking is also a half-day tour leaving between 7 and 7.30am depending on the location of your hotel. You’ll arrive in Tabanan, meet your guide and get a little snack before you start your trek.
On the way there will be chances to pick some local vegetables and taste different fruits growing on trees in the jungle. Your guide will also talk you through the Balinese plants and animals that you might see along the route.
After walking through the jungle and out into beautiful rice fields you will stop at a Balinese compound where you’ll get a peek into daily life in Bali. You can help cook up some of the veggies you picked earlier and eat in the compound. You will also have the chance to ask your hosts about their lives and culture.
The tour includes your transfers back to your hotel, and you should get back around 3-3.30pm. There is no tough trekking on this tour so it’s suitable for anyone. If you think your child will need to be carried on the trek it’s suggested that you bring a suitable carrier for your own comfort.
