Not everybody likes group activities or tour guides showing them around. We also offer self-guided bicycle tours. You have the freedom and flexibility to discover the countryside at your own speed and preference combined with the backup of a professionally organized tour. If something goes wrong we are there to assist you.
The 4-day tour lets you appreciate the beautiful natural surroundings of Chiang Mai with an overnight stay at a beautiful resort outside of Chiang Mai for the first night.

The second day the route takes you to Baan Tawai, the wood carving village and then on to Lamphun for the second night. The Haripunchai temple is worth a visit in Lamphun. The third day you will ride to San Kamphaeng through the fertile valley of Chiang Mai along the river Ping and its tributaries. Overnight in San Kamphaeng and the last day a ride to Doi Saket for a visit to caves and hot springs. A great way to experience the Thai countryside the adventurous way.
