From Bali to Java on the Volcanoes Trail

Your motorcycle tour in Indonesia 12 stages - 849 miles

street market bali
1/12 • Arrive in Ubud
On arrival, you will be met at the airport and transferred to Ubud, Bali’s cultural and artistic centre. You will check in at the hotel and have a free day to explore Ubud or do as you please. Ubud is believed to be the most magical town in Bali, with its daily dance shows, shops and art galleries.
monkey forest ubud
2/12 • Ubud - Belimbing
This morning, your tour leader introduces you to your new steed: the Royal Enfield. The tour starts off to the west of Ubud where we discover Bali’s wealth of natural resources. We ride on small roads through traditional villages, stopping to visit the Hindu temple and pilfering monkeys of Sangeh Monkey Forest before heading to Jatiluwih rice paddies, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In the afternoon, after crossing several rice paddies far off the tourist track, we reach Belimbing, a region on the slopes of Mount Batukaru.
sunset java indonesia
3/12 • Belimbing - Licin
We’re going to sleep on Java Island tonight! We take a fantastic road for around 30 miles, which leads us to Bali’s north coast. We cruise along the coastal road to Gilimanuk where the ferry to Java awaits. After a 90-minute ferry crossing, we disembark on Indonesia’s largest island: Java. Just 18 miles to go before we reach our stop for the night at the foot of the Kawah Ijen volcano.
mount ijen java
4/12 • Licin - Jember
This morning we set off at sunrise to head for Paltuding, situated at almost 2000 m altitude, and take a 2-mile hike up Mount Ijen (approx. 90 minutes). From the rim of the crater, we’ll witness the first sunrays of the day unveiling astounding views of the world’s largest acid lake. We’ll also meet many sulphur collectors on our way. After a well-deserved lunch, we leave for Jember, riding on small, little-used roads through beautiful coffee plantations.
mount bromo indonesia
5/12 • Jember - Cemoro Lawang
We continue west and take in the Javan landscapes, observing the cultural differences it has with Bali. The last 30 miles pushes us up to an altitude of 2,000 m, passing through authentic villages blessed by the volcanic land. This leg comes to an end just steps away from Bromo volcano, where we have some lunch and can spend the afternoon exploring.

6/12 • Cemoro Lawang - Ambulu
We get an early start to catch a breathtaking view of the volcanoes in the Bromo-Tengger-Semeru National Park at daybreak. We then go down into the famous “Sea of Sand”, dominated by Mount Bromo’s smoking crater. We pass through a surreal lunar landscape for some miles, which is sure to leave a lasting impression. For many of us, this first taste of riding on volcanic sand is bound to make us feel apprehensive to start with, but we'll soon experience an exhilarating, addictive feeling of freedom! We finish this leg on a desert road which runs alongside the Indian Ocean until we reach Papuma (standard hotel).
beach java indonesia
7/12 • Ambulu - Sukamade
Completely off the beaten track, we take the small roads surrounding Meru Betiri National Park. Entering the national park along a rocky track in the depths of virgin forest is out of this world. We finally reach Sukamade and our basic but welcoming guesthouse, where we enjoy a traditional meal. As night falls, we go to a virgin beach to see if we can spot the turtles that lay their eggs here all year round.

8/12 • Sukamade - Pemuteran
An early start this morning to go back to the beach and release one-day-old turtles. Then we ride the last of our country roads as we head for coastal Banyuwangi where we take the ferry back to Bali Island and become reacquainted with traffic. After 18 miles along the coast, we reach Pemuteran, a seaside village, where we stop for two nights.
menjangan island
9/12 • Pemuteran - Menjangan Island
We leave the bikes for a well-deserved rest today. In the morning, you can go to Menjangan Island, a protected marine reserve with exceptional coral reefs. You can choose between a scuba diving tour or a snorkelling session. In the afternoon, we go back to the Balinese coast and relax by the pool before enjoying grilled fish on the beach.
batur volcano indonesia
10/12 • Pemuteran - Amed
You will really discover the treasures that the heart of Bali has to offer on this stretch. We ride along the far east coast for around 25 miles before heading south towards the rugged inland. In the middle of the tropical jungle, Mount Batur suddenly appears before us: a great place to stop for some lunch. Lastly, we descend towards the small coastal village Amed in the southeast of the island.
rice paddies indonesia
11/12 • Amed - Ubud
Our last day riding the small, magical Balinese country roads. On the way back to the city, we stop at Amlapura market and take a break in Pakudui, a charming village known for its woodcarvings, an ancient Balinese tradition. Once in Ubud, you will have the time to do some shopping, relax by the pool at your hotel or roam around the city’s art galleries.
