The territory north of Luang Prabang is some of the most visually stunning in Southeast Asia. From the valley that is home to the Mekong over to the Nam Ou River and the mountains in between, this ride a great insight into Northern Laos.
We ease into the adventure with a cruise up the Mekong River and then spend two days pedaling through the valleys of the north. We’ll enjoy another scenic boat ride, this time on this stunning Nam Ou river down to the lovely town of Nong Khiaw, and then we cycle down to Luang Prabang. The rides are all achievable on mostly rolling hills and no sustained climbing. This fantastic bike and boat journey offers the opportunity you to take in the beauty of northern Laos, meet some locals, and take some photos to remember your adventure.
245 Km riding. The road on this ride is all paved. In places this can be damaged and may have reverted to hard paced dirt, but there is no "off-road" riding in this trip. 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. Main roads in Laos are actually like a backstreet anywhere else due to the low number of vehicles on the road which is consistent with the country's low population.
Peak Season Surcharge: For tours commencing from Dec 23 to Jan 3 there is a peak season surcharge of 15% on the price of this tour due to hotel rate increases at this time of year.
