Bali Family Breakaway Bike Tour

Circle an Alluring Island on Two Wheels

  • Explore an exotic culture steeped in Hindu spirituality and colorful mythology
  • Set out on unforgettable rides past emerald rice terraces, peaceful villages and sacred pools

Even as Bali joins the globalized world, it's easy for you and your gang to find inspiration here. Among terraced rice fields and exotic temples. In bustling market towns and on the slopes of volcanic mountains. And among some of the most welcoming people you'll ever have the pleasure of meeting. Come explore Bali with Backroads in a way that few travelers experience.

Bali Biking Map

Itinerary

Days 1-2 Unforgettable rides past rice paddies, peaceful villages and sacred pools  Go behind the scenes with our longtime friend and local guide Wayan Narta  After spinning through rolling hills near Ubud, visit a mask maker to learn about this age-old art form  Raft the Ayung River, keeping an eye out for bright kingfishers and giant teak trees.

Day 3 Discover an exotic culture steeped in Hindu spirituality and colorful mythology  Bike to the sacred Pura Pucak Sari temple and meet the resident priest  Ever cycled on a volcano? Pedal up and around Gunung Batur on your way to the quieter and simpler northern side of Bali  Dine alfresco to a soundtrack of live soothing rindik (bamboo xylophone).

Days 4-5 Relax at tropical beachside retreats  Spin along Bali's arid northeast coast, passing lava flows from Mount Agung's 1963 eruption  Treat yourself to a massage, or don masks and fins for a snorkel amid the wreckage of the torpedoed Liberty, a haven for some 400 species of colorful reef fish  Return to shore on our brightly painted junkung boats and pedal back to the hotel for an afternoon of leisure.

Days 6-8 Meet locals in their art studios  Visit Tenganan, known for its beautiful double-ikat textiles  Prepare classic mie goreng in a private cooking class  Impressive volcanic mountains give way to a sandy beach on an exhilarating descent past scenic rice terraces  Bike to a nearby community, passing small family compounds and the local school—a wonderful opportunity to make friends with Balinese children as they do their morning exercises.

When I think of the perfect place for a vacation that's beautiful, relaxing and culturally rich, I start dreaming of paradise - also known as Bali. Here you can snorkel among parrot fish and giant clams. Visit sacred temples and vibrant art studios. Raft the Ayung River through the jungle and end the day with the Indian Ocean crashing at your feet... We'd love to welcome your family to Bali!

Accommodations

This Premiere Inn Trip includes one Casual Inn night at Puri Bagus Lovina. The guest rooms are comfortable, but simpler than those of our other Balinese hotels. We've chosen this property because of its prime location on our biking route and its local charm.

Biking in an Emerging World

Bali is a beautiful destination with an enriching and unique culture, but it's also part of a rapidly developing country and travel here can be challenging.

Navigating Bali's crowded narrow city streets and rural roads on a bicycle is both a physical and cultural adventure that requires quick thinking, patience and humor (watch out for that scooter!). Though the route distances may be relatively short, the terrain, road conditions, heat and humidity, and the need to be alert can make activity more physically demanding.

While our trip emphasizes the idyllic Balinese serenity, it's impossible to fully avoid the bustling intersections and modern pace found here, complete with trucks, construction and litter—all serving as reminders that Bali is more than a peaceful Shangri-La; it's also a complex culture and economically evolving society.

Why Travel with Backroads in Bali

Escape from the Resort World

Circumnavigating this magical island by bike, you explore its less-known areas – ones that tourists trapped in resorts rarely get to experience – and meet a lot of friendly, fascinating people along the way. The Trip Expert who created our unique Backroads itinerary has spent more than 25 years exploring Bali. His routes nicely capture both the breathtaking natural beauty and the cultural nuances that make this such a remarkable place.

Everyone at Their Own Pace

We design and support our Bali trips to suit mixed abilities and varied interests—so you can set your own pace, then change things up as the day unfolds. And all guests are free to do the same, traveling together or apart, with no one cramping anyone else's style. Which sounds easy in theory, but it's hard to pull off. Here's more on how we do it.

Kids Who Aren't Kids Anymore

Only Backroads offers active trips in Bali designed for families with older teens and 20-somethings. Our Family Breakaway trips are aimed at you and the amazingly grownup members of your clan—whether they're almost high school grads, already in college or further along. Find out more in this blog post.

A Second Van When You Need It

Backroads is the only active travel company providing two support vans in Bali—because we know it's essential to ensure a truly great travel experience. It doubles our ability to be there when you need us to offer hydration, lighten your load or give you a lift if it's time to take a break. Read more on why two vans make all the difference.

The Best Leaders in Bali

Backroads has the best-qualified people to lead your trip in Bali, and our guests back that up, rating our Trip Leaders an average of 9.75 out of 10 for all-around quality of performance. Get the facts (and no fluff) on how we recruit and develop the very best people for your trip.

A Variety of Routes Each Day

In Bali you head off each morning after choosing among several expertly designed routes—all with detailed directions, mileage and shuttle options. Unlike trips with one fixed daily route (or worse, one guide that everyone's obliged to follow), you're free to enjoy the best of the region at your pace, stopping wherever you want to explore further.
