If you answered yes to all the above questions then this two day getaway will be one of the highlights of your holiday in Bali.
DAY 01 | Batur Crater Ride | 28km
At 07.30am we will come and pick you up at your accommodation and transfer with our support vehicle to the central volcanoes of the island. On the way up we will visit a local coffee plantation and the Pura Puncak Penulisan Temple. We then transfer to the starting point. Today's ride goes around the outer rim of the volcano with amazing views of the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other. You may expect some of Bali's best single track riding! Later we descend into the caldera and ride through the black lava stream where the latest eruption of Mount Batur happened in the year 2000. After the ride we have an included visit to the local hot springs of Toya Devasa. In the late afternoon we transfer back to the rim of the volcano where our hotel is located. The views from the hotel are amazing.
DAY 02 | Hike to the Summit of Mount Batur | Ride from Mount batur to Ubud | 35km
Our trekking guide will come and pick you up at your accommodation around 03am for the hike to the summit of Mount Batur. To witness Mount Batur at sunrise is to experience one of the most endearing displays of the earth's eternal awakening. It takes about 2,5 hours to reach the summit where we will provide a light breakfast with coffee or tea. Around 09.30am you will meet our cycling crew again and we start our mountain bike program. We will cycle mostly downhill on a wide mixture of terrain all the way down to Ubud where our adventure ends. From here we can transfer you back to your accommodation in the South or you can spend the night in Ubud (accommodation on Day 2 not included).

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
