Things to do in Bali: Outdoor Adventures
Relaxing in your luxuriously appointed Bali villa may be all you want to do on your vacation, but if you are looking for more active things to do in Bali, the rest of the island offers a diverse array of outdoor adventures. Whether you want to ride horses or bicycles, go rafting, or hike through the jungle, there are many excellent tour companies to support your outing.
If you are looking for a unique and active way to learn about Balinese culture, look no further than Bali Budaya Tours (BBT). BBT, or Bali Cultural and Ecological Tours, offers environmental and educational bicycle tours where you can learn about Balinese culture as you get some exercise. Locally known as “Bali Eco”, this company specializes in bicycle tours that showcase the “Real Bali” — a window into typical Balinese daily life, and an ecological, cultural, and culinary learning experience!
If you prefer riding horses to bicycles, check out Bali Island Horse . They offer ocean-side horseback riding and a unique opportunity to “swim with the horses”. Another Bali tour company, Bali Horse Riding, also offers beach rides in addition to rides through lush, green rice fields, and they are specially equipped to accommodate children.
Whitewater rafting is a great way to see the interior of the island, and there are several reputable river guide companies near our Ubud luxury villa. We like to travel with Mega Rafting down the Ayung River through the jungle, rice fields and even through a few waterfalls! And if rapids make you nervous, Mega Rafting offers a variety of other ways to see the island including trekking, cycling, or even riding in an old Volkswagen.
