1. Bali: Mount Batur Quad Bike Tour and Natural Hot Springs
Break out of the typical tourist mold and explore Bali's stunning natural environs by quad bike. Enjoy the convenience of a complimentary pickup from your hotel in an air-conditioned vehicle or meet directly at the villa-like facility near Mt Batur. Drive to Kintamani where you can have breakfast while taking in views of Mount Batur, an active volcano surrounded by black lava fields and sand. Greet your guide at Latengaya Guesthouse for an informative safety briefing and get outfitted with protective equipment. Your semi-automatic quad bike is easy to use even for less experienced drivers. On a 2.5-hour quad bike tour, you will have the opportunity to explore the diverse scenery surrounding Mount Batur, traveling down jungle trails, through villages, and across the characteristic black sand of the volcano. Pass the site of the volcano's most recent eruption where you can see the largest black lava stone located on the mountain. Before and after your tour, enjoy the exclusive use of Mt. Batur Lounge, the only villa-style lounge around with clean, modern toilets and a comfortable shower facility. After refreshing yourself in the showers, enjoy a hot cup of tea or coffee in the lounge. After your quad adventure, continue on to a natural hot spring where you can have a refreshing swim and head to a nearby restaurant for lunch. Get a last glimpse of Mount Batur before driving to a Balinese coffee plantation to sample an important local product and learn about the production process before your driver takes you back to your hotel.
