You’ll also stop to check out some small, intricately carved temples, before concluding your bike tour back in Ubud. After refuelling at lunch, head for the hills to the village of Sidemen, travelling by private minivan (about 2 hours). Set against a backdrop of Bali’s highest peak, Mt Agung, the peaceful village of Sidemen is proof that Bali still has some pockets that are untouched by tourism.Included meals: breakfastTravel time: bicycle tour approx. 2.5 hrs., travel to Sideman approx. 2 hrsSpecial Information: Please note that bicycle helmets are included and we also have a support vehicle if the going gets too tough.

Volcanic Mt Batur (1717 metres/5633 feet) sits inside a stark and spectacular caldera and with Lake Batur below, it’s a stunning sight. The lake supports the local fishing industry, while many of the villagers work as guides for the volcano climb. Your accommodation at the base of Mt Batur is a hotel with a restaurant. This is a great location to start tomorrow’s early morning trek without extra travelling time.Included meals: breakfast, lunchTravel time: Walk around Sideman approx. 2.5 hrs., drive to Lake Batur takes approx. 2 hrs.Special Information: There are often mosquitos and bugs around Lake Batur, so be sure to pack your insect repellent.

It’s a very early start today – you’ll have to wake at 3 am to begin the 1.5 to 2-hour walk to the summit of Mt Batur in order to reach it before sunrise. Trust us, it’s worth the effort. On a clear morning, it’s possible to see all the way across the Lombok Strait to the peaks of Lombok’s Mt Rinjani. The view of the gorgeous sunrise over the valleys of Bali may well be the most memorable part of your trip. Do keep in mind, however, that the weather can be unpredictable and sometimes the view is obscured by clouds. After descending the volcano, there’s an option to soak in hot springs with fantastic views over the lake and caldera. Then make the journey from the mountains to the small coastal town of Lovina (approximately 3 hours). Lovina is famous for the dolphins that patrol its coast.

Day 15 -
A good level of fitness is essential, as there are a range of physical activities included (cycling from Ubud, hiking Mt Batur, village walks and hikes in Lombok and two snorkelling trips).
There is one very early start – your sunrise climb of Mt Batur kicks off at 3 am. This means you’ll be walking over some gravel and volcanic rock in the dark. Head torches, warm clothing and good walking shoes are a must. The view at sunrise is well worth the effort, especially if the weather’s fine!
Bali and Lombok are blessed with fairly consistent temperatures year round, however the rainy season is usually from October through to March. During this time there are generally frequent downpours, although generally these do not last long and the temperatures are usually still warm.
There are two included snorkelling trips - for confident swimmers this is a great chance to see the sealife.
Lombok is more conservative than it’s Balinese neighbour. Particularly in smaller towns and during village walks, it is best to dress conservatively
There is limited, at times, no Internet or wifi at our accommodation in Tetebatu and Senaru, due to their remote locations. Enjoy some time off the grid.
Visas are the responsibility of the individual traveller. Entry requirements can change at any time, so it’s important that you check for the latest information. Please visit the relevant consular website of the country or countries you’re visiting for detailed and up-to-date visa information specific to your nationality. Visas can take several weeks to process, so familiarise yourself with any requirements as soon as you have booked your trip to allow for processing time and costs.
This is a shared tour. That means that tour operators from all over the world book their guests onto thistour. So you will be travelling in an international group.
A Single Supplement to have your own room is available on this trip and excludes nights 3 (small hotel in Sideman) and Mt Batur (small local guesthouse) 10 & 11 ( small guesthouse in Labuan Pandan), and 12 (small hotel in Senaru) where you will be in shared accommodation.
