There is no more exhilarating or scenic way to appreciate the beauty of Bali than by following a trail through the countryside on foot or by bicycle. Amandari offers invigorating treks along the Ayung Valley and lush rice paddies. While Bali’s roads are rarely quiet, there are some lovely out-of-the-way tours for bikers and nature lovers. It’s not unusual to encounter at least one village festival or temple ceremony along the way.
White-water rafting down the Ayung River, below Amandari, makes for a thrilling activity. It is also a novel way of seeing Bali’s lush tropical rainforest.
