A day after an exhausting trek to Mount Batur, my friends and I tried the ATV Quad Bike adventure in Ubud. It wasn’t part of our itinerary but the driver we hired on our first day in Bali suggested that we try it, so we did. It was two hours of non-stop fun and adrenaline-pumping adventure.

We booked our ATV ride through our local driver, Gede. He was able to get a little discount since we are going there on our own. Instead of paying $130, we only paid $120 for a tandem ATV ride plus lunch.
We left Seminyak around 8AM and went straight to Pertiwi Quad Adventure in Ubud. It was more than an hour ride from our Villa. We arrived past 9AM. We signed the waiver and started our adventure.
The terrain was fantastic and the view was spectacular. It was an amazing experience riding on an all-terrain vehicle (quad bike) passing through challenging tracks along the rice fields, jungle, and traditional villages. Definitely a must-try when in Bali.
ATV Ride at Pertiwi Quad Adventure costs US$90 fora single ride and US$130 for a tandem ride. Aside from ATV, they also offer other interesting activities like Paintball and Water Rafting.
