Think of Bali and what comes to mind? Beaches. Rice terraces. Rolling hills. Mountains. Volcanoes. Yes, these landscapes do define the island. What if you can explore parts of Bali on an ATV? Sounds enticing? Well, strap on your helmet and rev up your engines cuz Exotissimo’s got an ATV Ride lined up for ya.
So, what is an ATV btw (by the way)? It is abbreviated from all terrain vehicle. This powerful machine is built with off-road in mind, meaning it can traverse through some pretty impossible terrain. The rider sits on it like a motorcycle, with handle bars just like supported by four all-purpose tires. Because of these characteristic, it is sometimes called a quad-bike..
You will be given a five-gear Yamaha ATV with a choice of semi-automatic machines for novices and beginners and manual vehicles for the more seasoned rider. The engines range from 250cc to 350cc specs that are designed to yield powerful performances with exceptional balance, even with high velocity.
A seasoned guide and an ATV expert will lead the convoy throughout the trip. Helmets are provided. Mud splatter, a guarantee! So make sure you bring along a change of clothes, athletic shoes and some eye-protection, preferably sunglasses.
Now it’s time to get down and dirty! The tour kicks off in Tabanan Regency, at the base of Batukaru Mountain. It is an excellent starting point as the weather is cooler (temperatures rarely exceed 25 degrees Celsius up here) than the rest of the island and features endless green rice paddies. It also rains a lot up here, making your ATV journey thrilling, exciting and certainly eventful all year round.
Your hour and a half journey takes you along the base of Batukaru Mountain. This is the island’s second largest mountain (which is also a dormant volcano), towering at 2,276 meters above sea level. It is also known for its dense jungles and rice paddies. You will definitely see them as you power your way through dirt and gravel roads. You can also catch beautiful views of Tabanan in the distance. Oh, before we forget, don’t forget your camera! Make sure it is in a bag or safely in your pocket. Remember our warning about mud splatter?
