We provide you with Hotel pick up and then we drive to the hilly Kintamani volcano area of Bali. On our way, we stop off at the local Village School for you to meet and experience a typical rural Bali school. Our company donates a portion of your tour cost to purchase essential School work items to the children of the School, which will be distributed to the children during your visit. If you like, you can also bring along some extra items to personally give to the children when you visit the School. We then enjoy a light Breakfast, whilst admiring the magnificent view of Lake Batur. After Breakfast, we Cycle downhill from Kintamani to Ubud, which is duration of approx. 3.5 hours Cycle. During the cycle, we experience the rural panoramic areas of Bali while your local, trained guide will explain the culture, traditions and realities of Balinese life and culture.
We then take a visit to a local family compound where we interact with the locals. There will be a local priest who companies you with a cup of coffee while having a genuine conversation with the guide as the translator. This is a great opportunity to learn about Balinese family and rural life. At the finish point later we all have Balinese lunch in the Padi Organic restaurant in the village of Laplapan, which is surrounded by Rice paddies.

“FriendsinBali” is a small local found company specializes in organizing cycling and trekking trips for traveler based in village of Tampaksiring, Bali. Like no other company, FriendinBali was established to fully support the local young talented Balinese to get a better living. We often learned that due to economic challenge these days, much talent had been kept undeveloped especially young unschooled people in villages where chance of working is quiet limited. In FriendsinBali we encourage them to keep their spirit up, keep learning to get a better earning for their family. We taught them English and Customer Service, then let them guide the guest on cycling or trekking trip where they can genuinely share information about Bali and their culture as Balinese. We also had started our little foundation “FriendsinBali Charity” where we always allocated funds from guest expenses to provide some school equipment to be donated especially for Elementary school student. Guests are always recommended to join by donating any unused stuffs that probably can be useful for the children during the Cycling or Trekking trip. By joining us, you had shown your kindness and contribution in helping Balinese. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
