Day 1 | Canggu | Arrival Day
When you arrive at the airport our team will be waiting for you, simply look for the sign with your name on it. The drive into Canggu takes approximately 30 minutes. There are no activities planned during the day, plenty of time for you to relax and recover a bit from the journey. In the evening we will head out for a local meal where you will get to meet your fellow travelers and our Infinity Team. Our accommodation is located in the popular Batubolong area very close to the famous surfing spots of Canggu. There is lots of activity in this area with good bars, beach clubs, small boutiques, great restaurants and amazing surf. Just keep in mind it is a big day tomorrow :) (D)
Day 2 | Batu Karu | Canggu to Jatiluwih | 50km
Time to hit the trails. We will start riding right from our accommodation and head inland towards the central located volcanoes. This area of Bali is not frequently visited by tourist and will simply take your breath away. We will ride through charming local villages, rice paddy fields and mountain scenery. The total distance is about 50km and there is a lot of uphill but at an easy gradient. Finish point for today are the Unesco listed rice paddy field terraces of Jaliluwih located at 1100m altitude. Our accommodation is a beautiful and remote local hotel surrounded by volcanoes. What more can you want for your first day on the bikes. (B L)
Day 03 | Amazing Single Track through the Tabanan Province | 45km
We start with an early transfer from your hotel to the region of Bedugul at 1400m. The views from here over Lake Beratan - one of the most famous lakes in Bali - are simply breathtaking. Let the adventure begin! Through an amazing maze of single track we make our way down back towards the coast. Every aspect of mountain biking is covered on this ride. A 45km adrenaline rush with some of Bali's best and purest single track. Please come with a healthy dose of adventure for this one cause you will need it! We end up right at our accommodation, a beautiful resort in the middle of the countryside. (B L)
Day 04 | Enduro Style ride from Penulisan to Tulamben| 35km
Today we will head towards Bali's quiet North coast. A morning transfer will bring us to the rim of the caldera of the Mount Batur Volcano. From here we will start riding, bit more technical today but lots and lots of fun. First we ride on amazing single track on the rim of the caldera. Weather permitting we have views of the ocean on one side and the volcanoes of Mount Batur, Abang and Agung on the other. We then have a section of 10km rolling hills with a few short but steep climbs. The final part of the ride is an amazing 16km downhill rush from 1600m absl all the way towards the ocean. We spend the night at our local accommodation in Tulamben right on the beach. (B L)
Day 05 | Mount Abang towards the Coast | cycle 40km
Tulamben is one of the best places for diving in snorkeling in Bali. In the early morning an optional dive or snorkeling adventure can be arranged through the hotel. Most famous sight here is the USAT Liberty Shipwreck from WW2. The wreck lies a mere 30m offshore, and almost parallel to the beach. The shallowest part of the wreck where it touches the sand slope is at 5-10m while average depth along the middle is 16-20m. The lower edge of the wreck, the furthest down the slope, is 20-28m at high tide. The wreck is pretty broken up but you can still see the guns, toilets, boilers, anchor chain, etc. You can also snorkel on the wreck as the highest point of the stern is only 3m below the surface.
Around 9am we pack up and go again. Today we transfer back up with our support vehicle to the higher regions of the island, the volcanic core of the island. From the foot of Mount Abang we will start riding towards the coast. Today's ride is more downhill orientated but nothing to technical and lots of fun. The ride starts with an amazing 12km run where we have a few different tracks in the area. After the first run we can shuttle back up and ride another one. We then continue through local forest and rice paddy fields towards the coast. After the ride we transfer to our hotel in Ubud where we will be for the final 2 nights of the tour, time to relax a bit by the hotel's swimming pool or go out and explore Ubud. (B L)
DAY 06 | Morning Ride around the Batur Crater | Afternoon Ride from Mount Batur to Ubud | 60km
An early transfer will bring us to Mount Batur, our playground for the morning. We will ride around the actual crater of the volcano on a wide mixture of terrain with amazing views of Mount Batur, Lake Batur and Mount Abang. You may expect some of Bali's best single track riding! We end up riding through the black lava stream where the latest eruption happened. After our lunch break we will transfer you back up to the rim and cycle mostly downhill for 35km on a wide mixture of terrain all the way down to Ubud where our mountain bike adventure ends. We overnight in Ubud again in our beautiful resort in the middle of the rice paddy fields. (B L)

REVIEW ABOUT THIS TRIP
I joined Infinity Mountainbiking for an adventure around Bali this summer. I chose the Bali Bootcamp which is a 5 day trip riding up, down, on volcanoes, in the jungle, though rice patties and little villages. It was an adrenaline rush combined with stays in beautiful high standard hotels in remote places. A perfect combination for those who want action and as well as to re energize. This journey takes you far away from everyday stress and thoughts. The guide Suandy was so nice, teaching us a lot about Balinese culture, ecology and nature as he brought us safely through the tracks. I recommend this trip to anyone who has some experience with mountainbiking.
