Welcome to the official website of Bali Eco Cycling, part of Bali Eco Tours. Famed for the original authentic eco-educational cycling tour (since 1999). We are proud to offer a wide range of tours/activities to discerning Bali visitors. Sharing our island home is our passion, and we hope your stay in Bali is enjoyable and memorable.
Due to religious festivities, when our staff get on with their job no 1 (Being Balinese), we will not be running any of our regular day tours. Rest assured that our route will be even more beautiful on the days prior to and immediately after these festivities as Bali will be decorated for the heavenly invisible visitors: Our ancestors and deities that we believe are visiting us during these festivities.
We will not be running any Day Tours on these following dates (customized 5 to 10 day tours excepted):
- Galungan falls on 10 February (festivities all around Bali)
- Kuningan falls on 20 February (festivities all around Bali)
The ninth full moon falls on 22 February (festivities at Penataran Sasih in Pejeng, near our cycling finish point and Pura Bukit Mentik in Gunung Lebah, our start point for the Mt Batur Live Crater Walk). We are still running the Rice Field Walk and Cycling tours that finish near Pejeng and invite you to take a peek at the festivities, but we are not doing the Live Crater Walk on this day as it means walking above the Bukit Mentik temple.
Ask us about our customisable 5 to 10 day tours! Ideal for families or groups of 4 friends or more. We've partnered up with some amazing villas around Bali to give you a unique experience well off the beaten track. With accommodations offering amazing discounts for the February to May period, we can pass on the savings to you! Contact us for further information.

The Bali Eco concept remains that of being eco-friendly. To us, this means caring about the tripple bottom line: For a business to be sustainable, it must strive to balance its duty of care to people and the environment with profit. Steve set up a company that set off on the right path to be environmental friendly, cultural friendly and indigenous friendly, a unique phenomenon amongst Bali's rampant tourism growth. He built a success for the right reasons (please click and read the About Us section). We continue to work hard to give our guests real value-for-money experiences and provide opportunities to experience the "Real Bali" without the hassle, hustle and bustle. We want our guests to discover more than the superficial beauty of our island home and to have an adventure, but to also learn through first hand experience.
I was trained as an Environmental Engineer, so I'm aware that any eco-warrior must first come to terms with his own hypocrisy and mediocrity. Yes, we still burn fossil fuels. We cannot claim to be a carbon-neutral company, as it is not yet technologically possible. We do our best to reduce our carbon footprint while educating our staff, our partners, the communities we work in as well as our honored guests, inviting all of you to join us on a journey towards environment stewardship together. Ubud has been home ground for Bali Eco, and we would like to give back by offering guests local insight through our new "Ubud Morning of the World Living Museum Walk & Spa" journey. We have also introduced a half-day Eco Ubud Cycling tour that takes you on a 19 km route through the rice fields and backroads north and around Ubud, finishing near the Monkey Forest. Both the Ubud morning walk and the afternoon Eco Ubud Cycling are ideal for those who wish to have a local "orientation" of Ubud, as we will point out to you our favorite local eateries that serve the authentic local cuisine.
We have decided to limit the number of people we can accept on our tours on each day to ensure every guest has a quality time. Our staff love doing their jobs well, they take real pride in their achievements, and we would rather suggest guests book on another day than overcrowd any of the tours. To cater to different needs and fitness levels, we continue to come up with variations on our products, especially on the Cycling Tour and Mt Batur Trek. We also remain flexible to requests for tailored tours to suit our guests.
They say there is no greater flattery than imitation. Unfortunately, many companies have tried to use the Bali Eco concepts, ideas, even the name, as well as the published literature without our ideals, ethics, scruples and eye for detail. There are some poor quality "copy cat" operators pretending to be us. When booking a 'Bali Eco' tour whilst in Bali, please ensure you are definitely booked with Bali Eco. As we have run on a trust system and collect final payment at the end of the tour, on occasion we have had other companies show up early at hotels to pick up guests who have booked with us! We are putting procedures in place to avoid this, and appreciate your assistance. Do make sure that the guide picking you up is wearing a bright blue t-shirt with "Bali Eco Tours" logo on his chest and "www.baliecocycling.com" on the back of the t-shirt. We offer a professional and well-trained team, international standards of safety and hygiene, our warmth and genuine desire to please our guests. We trust you share our vision and we promise to make your stay in Bali a memorable one.
Wishing you meaningful adventures, as well as ecological, cultural, culinary and learning experiences while in Bali,
Kadek Adidharma & Team
