Bali Adventure Tours is a highly respected company that was founded in 1989 and has grown extensively, with attractions such white-water rafting, mountain cycling and the Elephant Safari Park on its menu of exciting excursions. The mountain cycling adventure starts 1100 metres above sea level, in view of Mount Batur at Kintamani with its serene crater lake. The delightful, 26-kilometre descent then winds through sleepy mountain villages and lush valleys. The cycling tour finishes at the Elephant Safari Park. Here, participants will have the opportunity to touch, hand-feed and generally interact with the elephants, which were rescued from deforestation in Sumatra. The elephant safari ride tour is an unforgettable experience. Another adventure is white-water rafting along the Ayung River. Professionally-trained guides pilot the safety-equipped rafts through 9.6 kilometres of class II and III rapids, against an awesome rainforest backdrop.
