Travel Styles

Grasshopper Adventures is all about unique styles of travel
so hop on your bike for a holiday with a difference. 

Bicycle touring is the original Grasshopper style. We think getting out on a bike is one of the best ways to see a country in a slow personal way while still being able to travel reasonable distances. The great joy of this style of travel is that you can set your own pace, stopping for a photo or a chat when you feel like it. While we do visit the 'big ticket' destinations on these tours, highlights always include the little out of the way places that most visitors never stop at - a tiny village market, a local wedding or a village that barely makes it to a map but has a little guesthouse that we overnight in. If you want to experience a country from a very non-tourist perspective this is the way to go. 

All our trips are lead by friendly, knowledgeable and well-spoken guides. On the majority of our tours we use a support vehicle to carry our luggage, water and snacks supply, and anyone that wants to take a break from the riding. In this way riders of all abilities can still come along on the same trip and enjoy travelling by bike. You certainly don't have to be a triathlete to do one of our trips (although a bit of training certainly helps). 


Day Tours

Full and Half Day Tours
A different perspective

Visiting Asia and looking for a day out on the bike? Or perhaps you are an irregular cyclist but want to get a different perspective on the city you are visiting? If so our Day Tours are the perfect day out. These rides are, in our opinion, the best way to delve into the back streets of a city to see things from a whole different point of view.

If you are travelling with your family, and fancy doing something a little more adventurous and active for your holidays you'll find that Grasshopper has a great, and ever expanding, range of family tours for you and your brood. Less emphasis is placed on cycling on our Family Tours with shorter riding days and plenty of off-the-bike activities to keep the kids engaged. Well supported, with a friendly guide and backup vehicle always on hand, the emphasis is always on safety. We have tag-along bikes for 4-6 year olds and child seats for younger kids. Helmets are of course supplied and mini versions of our beautiful souvenir Grasshopper cycling jerseys are available for the youngsters.

Pioneering Tours

6 to 14 days
Taking discovery to the next level...

Grasshopper Adventures Pioneering Tours take you on the road less travelled. To remote locations far from the common tourist destinations, where adventure awaits at every pedal stroke. These tours are not necessarily physically harder, but are definitely for the more adventurous cyclist.

Being a pioneer does not mean that you will sacrifice quality of service, with our usual high standard of guiding and support always provided, although sometimes in these remote locations there will be limited accommodation options, and sometimes we may even camp... All in the name of incredible, once in a lifetime experiences.

As well as our wonderful local guides and mechanics, whose wealth of knowledge and experience will keep you on the right track, on all of our Pioneering Tours you are accompanied by one of our experienced professional Expedition Leaders. These expert guides will help smooth out any little bumps in the tour that may happen in these remote locations.

Current, well maintained and serviced, main brand bikes are provided, ranging from road-bikes to hard-tails, and even full suspension. These will have slight tire modifications that relate to the terrain, comfort seat, and handlebar bag options available.

If you are interested in any of our locations, would like to inquire about a private tour or larger group size, or have a destination in mind that doesn't feature on our website, please contact our Expedition Engineer Blair Coburn at  to discuss the endless possibilities available.
