Tirta Empul Cycling Tour

Ubud to Tirta Empul

This half day tour allows you to see some of Bali’s greatest treasures.  The scenery is absolutely breathtaking.  A must do!

The tour starts just outside of Ubud center and travels rice field tracks and back roads through local villages, rice terraces, as you make your way to the UNESCO world heritage site, Tirta Empul water temple.

The Tirta Empul water temple is considered to be one of the holiest temples in Bali.  It was built over 1000 years ago, and attracts many pilgrims coming to cleanse themselves in the holy waters.

But as grand as Tirta Empul is, getting there on our ebike tour is half the fun.  The tour travels through rice terraces and local villages.  You will experience Balinese temples and witness the incredible subak water irrigation system which has developed over centuries to keep the rice fields green and fertile.  We will also take you to a local family compound where you can see how the Balinese really live.  The tour finishes at Tirta Empul where a delicious lunch will be waiting for you and you are free to explore the temple.

And remember this is all done on our state of the art electric bicycles.  This means you can pedal as much or as little as you want.  We make frequent stops and have a support vehicle following you at all times.  Our guides also take pictures along the way.

This tour is one of a kind.  Come experience one of the most beautiful cycling routes Bali has to offer on this incredible half-day tour.
