What's the Bali area that recently has been gaining attention from both international and local tourists? The answer is certainly not Canggu or Ubud, but Kintamani. Long known as a destination for those who are looking for crisp air in Bali, away from the scorching heat in the south, Kintamani has transformed itself into a hip and cool destination in Bali, especially for young people. An array of aesthetically pleasing coffee shops is the main reason why so many visitors from Bali, other parts of Indonesia, and also foreigners come to Kintamani.

But Kintamani is way more than sipping Kintamani coffee with Mount and Lake Batur as the backdrop, or a photo shoot session for an Insta-perfect moment. Batur Mountain as the main attraction in the area has a lot of things to offer and explore, from black lava, hot springs, fauna, and the adventure itself. The best way to experience it is by joining a 4WD Volcano Explorer Tour.

The 4WD Volcano Explorer Tour in Mount Batur, Kintamani, Bali, offers a thrilling and adventurous way to explore the scenic landscapes, volcanic terrain, and local culture around the active volcano. The tour typically begins with an off-road adventure, taking you through rugged terrain, volcanic trails, and lush forests surrounding Mount Batur. The sturdy 4WD is equipped to handle the challenging terrain, providing a thrilling ride for adventure enthusiasts.

As you traverse the slopes of Mount Batur, you'll be treated to breathtaking panoramic views of the volcano, Lake Batur, and the surrounding countryside. The vantage points accessible by the car offer unique perspectives of the volcanic landscape and its natural beauty. The tour may include several stops along the way, allowing you to explore points of interest such as lava fields, volcanic craters, and vantage points overlooking the caldera. The guide will provide insights into the geological history of the area and share fascinating facts about the volcano's eruptions and impact on the region. In addition to the natural attractions, the volcano tour often includes visits to local villages, where you can experience the rich culture and traditions of the Balinese people. You may have the opportunity to interact with villagers, visit temples, and observe traditional crafts and practices.

While you’re exploring the lava field, the scenic vistas and dramatic landscapes encountered during the tour provide ample opportunities for you to capture stunning images. Whether it's the play of light and shadow on the volcanic terrain or the vibrant hues of the sunrise or sunset, there's no shortage of photo-worthy moments. On top of that, you will get a rare chance to encounter Kintamani bats. Unlike other bats that hide in the darkness, these bats are huddled together in the open on a cliff side and under a ledge which makes for great viewing and educating the kids.

After exploring the volcano for 2 hours, to unwind and relax, you could soak in the hot water in one of Kintamani hot springs. You could enjoy views of the lake and surrounding mountains while soaking in warm water filled with mineral-rich water sourced from deep within the earth.
