We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.
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.
