BALI & EAST JAVA 9-DAY ENDURO
Enduro mtb tour in Bali & East Java - 09 days - 7 days of amazing mountain biking - 8 nights comfortable accommodation - tour starts and ends in Bali
This mountain bike tour is designed to showcase the best enduro style mountain bike trails in Bali and around the Bromo National Park in East Java. In Bali we will be riding for 3 days on the flanks of the active volcanoes of Mount Batur and Mount Agung and around the crater of Mount Batur. In East Java we will mountain bike for 4 days in and around the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park. The riding is quite challenging with technical uphills, fast downhills and everything else in between.
Day 01 | Bali | 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 team. We overnight in the popular Batubolong area very close to the famous surfing spots of Canggu. There is lots of activity in this area with yummy healthy food, beach clubs, small boutiques and amazing surf. (D)
Day 02 | Bali | Single Track through the Woods | 40km
We start with an early transfer from our hotel to the region of Bedugul at 1400m. The views from here over Lake Bratan are simply breathtaking. Before the ride we will visit the iconic Pura Ulun Danu Bratan (Lake Bratan Temple) in Bedugul. Let the adventure begin! We have build several enduro style tracks all riding through the woods. Each track is between 5 to 8km and the shuttles back up are only 15 to 20 min maximum so we can ride the favorites a few more times. After the enduro runs we can ride another 20km through the most amazing rice paddy field scenery as well. We are back in Canggu before sunset where we overnight again. (B L)
Day 03 | Bali | DH and Enduro Tracks | 35km
Today we will head to the Mount Batur area in the center of the island. First track is a 16km downhill run that starts at 1800m altitude and ends at the ocean. Please be ready for technical single track, steep downhill and the most amazing views! After the first run we transfer back up to the volcanoes where we have lunch overlooking Mount Batur. The second session is a 12km downhill run on fast and flowing single track. We also have a few new lines in this area as the recent Bali Induro Race was held here. Each runs are 3 to 4 km. That's over 3000 vertical meters and about 35km of DH riding today! We spend the night in the Kintamani area to avoid the long transfer back. (B L)
Day 04 | Bali | Hike to the Summit of Mount Batur & Bike Down | 15km
Around 5.30am we will start hiking with our bikes to the summit of Mount Batur (1700m). It takes about 2 hours to reach the summit while pushing our bikes. After having our moment of glory at the summit we will ride down for about 15min all the way from the top of the volcano to the bottom! A true ones-in-a-lifetime experience! After our epic adventure we transfer back to Canggu where we will arrive around noon and the afternoon is yours to relax. (B L)
Day 05 | East Java | Ride around the crater of Mount Bromo | 25km
Today we transfer from Bali to East Java. We take a one hour domestic flight from Denpasar, Bali to Surabaya, East Java. After you arrive at the airport of Surabaya our team will transfer you by car (3 hours) to the village of Cemoro Lawang at the flanks of the national park of Mount Bromo. After lunch we will head out for a 2 hour downhill ride. After our ride we can hike up the 200 steps to the top of the crater of Mount Bromo. Those who are up for it can carry their bike up and ride down from the top through the loose sand of the volcano! Our accommodation is located at 2200m above sea level. Bring some warm clothes as it gets cold here at night. (B L)
Day 06 | East Java | Enduro Trails towards Probolingo | 35km
No need to check out today as we are staying at the same accommodation in Cemero Lawang. The first part of the ride today goes down to Sukapura. The second part of the ride goes to Probolingo. We will be on the bikes until 3pm. The riding today is enduro style again with a few short climbs and lots of downhill all on single track. After the ride we transfer back up to our accommodation high up in the mountains. We recommend to sleep early tonight as tomorrow is a really big day. (B L)
Day 07 | East Java | Sunrise over Mount Bromo | Ride to Welang | Bike Park | 40km
We start at 3am today and head with our 4x4 to Penanjakan Point, this place is the best to witness the sunrise over the Mount Bromo National Park. After this incredible experience we will get on our bikes again. Today's ride has 153m elevation gain and 2500m elevation loss which pretty much sums up the day. Be aware of a few technical sections on the downhill and a few sections where we have to carry our bikes. The ride ends at a local bike park where they build an amazing 12km trail trough the local forest. We will head out and play in the local bike park again after lunch. After the riding we transfer to the town of Batu that is famous for its amazing mountain scenery. Overnight in a local accommodation in Batu. (B L)

We end up at a local restaurant where we have lunch and can take a shower before we transfer back to Surabaya. Around 06pm we fly back to the island of Bali.

OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE
We hope everyone is staying as healthy as possible in the current global pandemic situation.
Infinity is scheduled to reopen around 2021 July. We realize the beginning will be very slow but we are eager to get things started again. We do have decided considering the current situation that until further notice we will run all of our short breaks and longer tour bookings as private departures. So each booking will have their own private guide, driver, and minivan (min 2 pax). Our crews will also take a COVID rapid test one or two days before the start of each tour.
Of course, we understand the uncertainty of the situation and therefore we are offering all of our guests that book on a multiple-day tour with us in 2021 the option to reschedule to a later date if needed and a two-year future travel credit for the entire amount of any deposit or full payments that have been made to us. Please note that the cancelation and rescheduling must come in fourteen days before the departure date of your tour.
Despite the difficulties ahead, one day this will eventually be over, and we hope all of you will be coming back, sooner or later. When this happens, we are ready for you!
We wish everyone the best during these uncertain times.
Stay safe and kind regards,
Team Infinity Mountainbiking
