Luang Prabang is a true gem of Southeast Asia, a joy to explore by bike and a great place for kids to get a taste of the far east. On this tour, we’ll get up close to elephants, see how silk is made, learn to cook a delicious Lao meal and cruise the Mekong River in addition to visiting the wonderful UNESCO old town of Luang Prabang itself. Leaving town, we head north through some of the most stunning scenery in all of Southeast Asia, for a visit to sleepy Nong Khiaw set on the banks of the Ou River. We’ll visit the idyllic Kuang Sii falls and take a walk through the dense forest, then stop to check out an elephant lodge.
With a good mixture of biking and various other activities, this tour is designed to form a fun and active component of your journey in the region that will intrigue the whole family.
133 Km riding. The roads on this ride are all paved, although in places this can be damaged and may have reverted to hard packed dirt, but there is no "off-road" riding. We aim for secondary roads wherever possible, but given that Laos doesn't have many primary ones to start with, we are somewhat limited in that regard. We place a strong emphasis on safety and the low number of vehicles on the road, which is consistent with the country's low population, makes cycling in Laos a relaxing experience.
Please Note - This tour is intended for families only. It is possible for us to schedule a private session of the same tour for adults, on request, at a nominal surcharge.
Pedal the back alleyways of UNESCO World Heritage Luang Prabang then enjoy an evening cooking class.
Ride through small villages to the turquoise waters of the iconic Kuang Sii falls, then visit a moon bear sanctuary before a forest walk.
Pedal to an elephant camp to learn about the rescue of these amazing animals before taking a ride on one.
Kids will enjoy exploring the Pak Ou Caves after a boat ride.
