#BuroGetaway: Activities in Bali for the adventurous
For the adrenaline junkies
Looking for an adrenaline-filled trip to Bali? Here are some exciting activities to opt for when you make your way to the 'Island of the Gods':
Ride around the Ubud rice fields
Take a break from yoga in Ubud and take a bicycle ride around the rice fields. Most bike tours will start with breakfast at the top of a mountain, before taking you on a mostly downhill route through back roads, minor village roads, and lush rice paddy panoramas.
The (commonly) 2am pickup time might put you off, but once you pull through the 2-hour hike and get to the summit of Mount Batur to catch the stunning sunrise view from above the clouds—it'll all be worth it.
There are numerous ATV tours across Bali, some take you through rice fields, traditional Balinese villages, riverbeds, or sandy beaches—some take you through all of the above; so pick a tour based on the kind of adventure or difficulty level you're looking for.
Great waves and sun all year round make Bali one of the most iconic surf destinations in the world. There's no better place to get started. Beginners can try their hand at Kuta beach and Canggu, while more advanced surfers should seek to challenge Uluwatu and Padang-Padang beach.
At 16km long, the Telaga Waja rafting route is the longest whitewater rafting route in Bali. It is classified as III-IV rapids class, so it is beginner-friendly, at the same time it will get your adrenaline pumping for an adventurous ride.
Not keen on much of the rowing that comes with whitewater rafting? Go tubing instead, where you'll get to sit back (for the most part of it) and enjoy the fun drops and beautiful scenery as you cruise through the river.
