Bali Biking

In Bali, it has been said that every Balinese is an artist, whether in painting, woodcarving or textiles. You too may find inspiration amid this compelling culture and diverse landscape.

  • Experience lush terraced rice fields, exotic temples neighboring lively villages, busy markets on the slopes of volcanic mountains, rivers tumbling down jungled gorges.
  • Connect with some of the most welcoming people in the world.
  • Snorkel among parrot fish and giant clams and relax at tropical beachside retreats.
  • Let Bali work its magic on your body and soul. It may still be winter when you return home, but warm memories of your Bali vacation should get you through to the spring.
