With this cycling tour I want to show you all the highlights from east to west Flores. As soon as you arrive in Ende we will pick you up and drive you to Moni. This is the starting point from where to go up to Mount Kelimutu the next day to enjoy the sunrise. Mount Kelimutu is well known for its blue lakes. We will cycle down and have a short stop to enjoy our breakfast before continuing to Bajawa. On the way we will pass Blue Stone Beach. As the name indicates the beach is covered with blue stoned which gives it a special sight.

The next day our cycling journey continues via Luba and Bena to Ruteng. Bena is the most famous village in the Ngada district due to its impressive stone formations and ancestral shrines as well as the traditional houses. Bena has turned into a signpost for the Ngada culture. In the village of Aimere you can see and taste ‘Arak’, a wine distilled from palm.

After a good breakfast the next morning we cycle to Kenda via Ting and Watu Alo and back to Ruteng. On the way you can see beautiful terraced rice fields, hills covered with green jungle and the traditional houses of Ruteng.

At our final day we cycle back to Labuan Bajo. We will stop at Cancar where you can see the unique Lingko rice fields; circular terraces arranged like a spider web. From Roe we will cycle down hill until we reach Labuan Bajo where a dinner and overnight stay awaits.

This tour you can be perfectly combined with the 3-day Komodo Tour.

Meet Leonardus and His Team

Member since: November 2014

Hi, my name is Leonardus Nyoman (Leo) and Flores is my bird ground. On Flores it is if the time has stand still. Flores is like Bali 50 years back. Flores has beautiful landscapes, white sandy beaches and every region on the island has its own tradition, language and rituals. It is very unique. I have lived in Bali for a while, but missed my island too much and returned back. This is where I belong, where my family and friends are. I spent most of my time working as an English and German speaking guide on Bali. Now, back on Flores my team and I would love to show the beauty of Flores to travelers. However, we don’t want the traditions, rituals and way of life be influenced by western culture. Therefore we promote eco-tourism and are focused on community-based tourism to involve the community as much as possible and let them benefit.
