Flores has stolen my heart. I can not recommend enough to cycle at this island.

You will discover the places, which one would never explore on your own. Of course you will get highly experienced tour guides with best regional knowledge and contacts. What will you see? For example the Blue Stone Beach, the age-old village Bena, the 3 multi color lakes in the crater of the volcano Kelimutu, the traditional Arrak distillery and not to forget, the experience-rich meetings along our way. ijen mountain java
