The Volcano Trail
If you enjoy a fast and flowing track then this ride is for you. We start with an early transfer from your hotel to the higher regions of the island, the volcanic core of the island. For here we will start riding mostly downhill on the slopes of the volcanoes from 1,600m above sea level all the way back down to the lower grounds. The scenery will simply take your breath away. We will ride through some of the most beautiful parts of the island. There is no doubt about it. This is one of Bali's ultimate trail rides :)

We are not going to sugar coat it for this one, this trip might be challenging for some. It’s a ride designed by mountain bikers for mountain bikers. Having previous off road experience is a must. We don’t do anything crazy such as big drops or extreme downhill stuff but it’s a sweet and fun pure trail ride. It's seat post down a lot of the time, mountain bikers will understand ;-)
Have you got what it takes…
Charming, knowledgeable local guide, mountain bike hire, helmet, gloves, lunch, local snacks and fruit, drinking water and isotonic drinks, pick up and drop off from your hotel (Seminyak, Kuta, Nusa Dua, Canggu, Sanur, Legian and Ubud area's).
Minimum 1 (we can confirm a new departure with only one person booking if the booking comes in at least a few days in advance).
Advanced: Tours are suitable for experienced mountain bikers only with great fitness and strong bike handling skills. Riding is primarily on rough doubletrack and single track. Sections of trail can be challenging with frequent ascents and descents of significant length. Trail conditions can change rapidly due to weather conditions and natural elements. Please make sure you are not choosing a tour that is too difficult for your skill level. This is your vacation, not army camp! Expect to ride about 4-5 hours per day, covering an average of 45km.

REVIEW ABOUT THIS TRIP
I did the Volcano trail with Infinity Mountainbiking Tours and I am so glad that I chose them to go with. I looked at a couple of other companies that did a bit of everything in terms of outdoor activities but these guys seemed to be right on the money with mountainbiking. The price was very comparable and reasonable, the guide for the day was fit, knowledgable, and a good rider. The bikes are in excellent, new and maintained condition (Giant Anthem 29er for me). The trails were amazing, not real technical but with views that take your eyes off the trail and your breath away. They provide water, at rest stops you are greeted with yummy food and lots of it. Support vehicles a plenty and for lunch we stopped a top a ridge at a restaurant and had an amazing lunch. I am a regular MTB rider in Australia and I also took my peddles and shoes with me to Bali and fitting these to the bike was not a problem for these guys, I had an awesome day with Infinity and I will be riding with them again next year for sure. Highly recommended!
