Full description

Be picked you up in a classic VW all-terrain jeep for a day of adventure at Bali’s Mount Batur volcano. Take the scenic route through Bali’s rice terraces and lush vegetation.

Stop at Penelokan and head to the rim of a huge caldera for a breathtaking view of Mount Batur. Continue your safari via the truck route into the old crater, where you will encounter huge lava flows which have covered most of the vegetation.

On the edge of the caldera, look out for monkeys that live in the towering trees. Climb up a lava dune for views of the mountain and see the black lava. Hear about how these landscapes evolved over thirty million years from your guide.

Loved driving thru the countryside in an open air Jeep. Beware, you will be in the sun for 8-10 hrs — so put on sun screen. We also had to stop several times to put up the roof and install the windows given the rain but after 30 mins or so, able to put the roof back down. The Mount Batur Valley was beautiful and it was interesting to have a local take us thru the black lava rock trails and how they use the minerals within the lava to make paintings. The hot springs was an experience. Although very touristy, it was peaceful to overlook the Batur Lake while soaking in the hot springs. There are many levels/pools to the hot springs with a large pool at the bottom. So you can soak in the upper levels and swim in the pool below. The changing room is co-ed with lockers and there are small shower/changing area available. Froggy’d father was our guide for the day and he was very helpful and he stopped several times so we could take photos or he took photos of us.

It was us a pleasure to drove with Froggy. He is such a great tour guide! My girlfriend and I had a nice day with a little bit raining but the tour was fantastic. We don’t expected the different sides of bali. Froggy told us a lot information about Coffee, volcano and the rice field. And it was possible to make little stops for our drone pictures. All in all a absolut fantastic tour with a professional guide!

A wonderful day. Our driver Froggy comes highly recommended. The day before, there was an uncomplicated arrangement via WhatsApp regarding the meeting point and the desired stations. So the process is not set in stone and it responds to wishes. The pickup worked wonderfully. All the stations listed are very interesting, although of course you always have the opportunity to spend additional money on souvenirs. The restaurants are all very decent, but you pay for the great view. All in all, highly recommended if you want to explore the island with a local driver.
