Discover the black trails of Mt. Batur on this volcano MTB tour in Bali.
An active volcano with the last eruption in living memory, explore the Mars-like lava fields on this MTB tour of Mt. Batur. A private tour for up to four people, discover the lush jungle-clad flanks of the active volcano, winding up the rocky black basalt trails to reach spectacular views of the volcano chain – stretching out over the caldera and out to sea.
This activity is run & operated from the activity base in Gianyar, near Denpasar. The route travels from 1650m (29km) to Batur Lake in Kedisan. Mount Batur is an active volcano located at the centre of two concentric calderas north west of Mount Agung – this route is relatively flat, using wild yet well-maintained paths.
Meet your guide at your accommodation for this private MTB tour of Mt. Batur. Renowned for its fiery past and stunning sunrises, this active volcano is in a constant state of change – offering guests the chance to appreciate the unique landscape at each elevation. Travelling to the base of the volcano, your guide will offer a short safety briefing and bike demo – ensuring you are comfortable with the route and terrain on the tour. Depending on fitness levels, there are two starting points available– mid way between Lake Batur and the Batur Volcano Crater, or at the edge of Lake Batur itself. Following your guide along the rough trails leading through the countryside, the route travels through traditional farmland on double and single tracks- sloping gently into the untamed rainforest that decorates the flanks of this infamous volcano. Last erupting in 2000, guests can also witness the lava flows that mark the higher elevations of the route, learning more about the area’s unique tectonic past and present. Reaching the Batur Caldera, the lagoon-like waters stretch out towards the horizon – offering views to the crater and out towards might Mt. Agung. On your return, enjoy a traditional Balinese lunch and homemade snacks before using the complimentary shuttle service to reach your hotel.
Suitable for all ages and ability levels, the terrain covered on this tour includes compacted soil with some sand cover, broken and sealed asphalt, plus some lava on jeep tracks. Full vehicle support and ‘opt out’ opportunities.
