A unique tour through a lovely and pristine environment with overnight in a floating bungalow on a lake and a fair distance cycling. This tour takes us to the north of Chiang Mai, where we will cycle through the countryside and visit 2 lakes and Sri Lanna National Park. The countryside is tranquil with small roads through rice paddies. Both lakes are man-made, for water storage and electricity production, but the views and environment are breathtaking. We will spend the night on one of them in a floating bungalow. Sri Lanna National Park is pristine greenery and the route along the Ping river towards Chiang Mai has beautiful scenery. Very relaxed biking in the Chiang Mai countryside.
Minimum 2 people
95 % flat paved country roads, 5 % small unpaved road

We pick you up at the hotel and travel by car to a small village outside Chiang Mai where your bikes are waiting for you. The tour takes you through villages where time seems to have stood still. You will see farmers working in rice paddies and there is a stop at a local school. Then the road seems to descend into a lake and pop out again on the other side. In 1989 this valley was submerged to create a water supply for the entire Doi Saket area. You and your bikes will go on a boat to the other side of the lake, floating above the sunken villages. You continue your tour through a forested area, where there is a picnic lunch.
After lunch, the ride will take you into the pretty and pristine natural environments of the Sri Lanna National Park towards Mae Ngat Dam, a hydroelectric dam which impounds the Mae Ngat River. Here we take a long tail boat which takes us to the center of the giant lake. We will stay the night in floating bungalows on this beautiful lake. You can spend the evening relaxing, swimming, canoeing or fishing. Distance today 50 kilometers.
After a delicious breakfast, we take the boat back to the shore and get back on the bike. We ride through another part of Sri Lanna National Park towards the Mae Taeng. There will be hardly climbing in this part, very relaxed and easy biking. We will have lunch at the river and then follow the Ping River downstream to finally end up in Mae Rim, just north of Chiang Mai. For the last stretch, we load our bikes onto the car and drive back to Chiang Mai. Distance today 45 kilometers.
