Full day bike tour in Siem Reap, Cambodia
Experience an unforgettable morning riding the back trails among the ruins of the Angkor Kingdom. This trip runs outside Siem Reap. 

See Angkor temples in the soft light of the morning and ride the hidden trails to avoid the crowds.

As the roosters begin to crow, you will be out at the most important religious monument in Cambodia, watching the sun rise over the triple towers of Angkor Wat. Even in the wet season, this is a magical time to see Angkor. As the crowds thin, take an unforgettable walk through the temple, where the soft light and cool temperatures present Angkor at its best. A short pedal away a delicious breakfast spread awaits. After breakfast we ride around the hidden trails of the Angkor complex to visit some of the best kept secrets and the iconic temples of the Bayon, Ta Prom and The Elephant Terrace. As the day heats up, we lunch with a view of Sra Srang Lake and then return to your hotel by vehicle around 2pm.

This tour is limited to 6 participants to ensure a more personal guided experience and to ensure you receive the premium service that we commit to. 

Please note: Cambodian day tours will not operate April 14th, 15th & 16th due to Khmer New Year celebrations. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Angkor 

Visit one of the world's great monuments. After experiencing the sun rising up behind the temple, walk through the site when it is at its quietest and most inspiring. We also visit the famous temples of Ta Prohm and The Bayon, in addition to some smaller, less-visited sites.

Hidden Trails

While we take you to see many of the iconic temples of the Angkor Archeological Park our means of travel is half the fun. We ride the back roads and hidden dirt trails to escape the crowds and bus tourists.

Great Bikes

Well maintained, top quality imported GT mountain bikes with a helmet and water bottle are provided.

Your Guide

An experienced English speaking, local leader will host you on this trip who is well spoken, very well informed, and charming. Our leaders are often cited as being the main highlight of the tour. We use local leaders who have a passion for their country and are always well informed on topics ranging from history, politics, cuisine and importantly local customs and cultures. Our leaders will take pride in introducing you to every aspect of their country.

Support Van

This tour is fully supported by an air-conditioned support vehicle so if you need a break from the riding the van is always there to use.

Tour Itinerary

Sunrise at Angkor Wat
The tour starts with a pickup from your hotel. The time will be advised when we confirm your booking. You will meet the rest of the group at Angkor Wat where your guide will pick out the perfect position to watch the dawn break. If the weather gods are with you the sun will rise up behind Angkor Wat and provide the most stunning of silhouettes.

Angkor Wat Walking Tour & Breakfast
As the other early risers head back to their hotels, you will have Angkor to yourselves in the best light of the day. Your guide will take you through to give you an overview of Angkor Wat after which you enjoy breakfast, just outside the temple area in peaceful surroundings.

Biking Angkor Archeological Park
The rest of the day is spent riding the back trails through ruins and forest and stopping at both iconic and less known temples. Among others, we stop at the Bayon and Ta Prom, both considered essential temples to visit. We take lunch by the small reservoir called Sra Srang and as the day heats up, we drive back to town and to your hotel. You can expect to arrive back around 2pm. 

Please noteAppropriate dress (knees and shoulders fully covered) is compulsory for entry into certain sections of Angkor Wat, and should also be observed throughout all temple areas for reasons of cultural sensitivity.


What's The Riding Like?

Flat terrain

20-25km riding

This ride is predominantly on flat tracks and small roads - there are no hills in the area so anyone who can reasonably ride a bike can do this tour. There are some sections on small dirt trails so beginner riders should not choose this tour.

Three of us did a full day bike tour of 3 of the main temples and loved it. I haven't ridden a bike in a while but felt very safe

Alice J March 2017

I would definitely recommend this is a great way to see the temples for the more adventurous travelers.

BrisVegasGirl_12 January 2017

We took a half day tour to see Angkor Thom and the Ta Prohm. Absolutely amazing - much the best way to see the temples and more of Cambodia.
