Unique 12 DAY dual-terrain, dual-bike adventure ride in Northern Thailand

Discover Thailand in two different ways:

Loop 1 (On-road Blast)
Loop 2 (Off-road Blast)

The tour provides an outstanding opportunity to obtain a thorough impression of the uniqueness of North Thailand. We will explore small, almost hidden routes that are unknown to many. This excursion will take you to the most beautiful countryside.

We know what you want: great roads, no traffic, no speed cams and stunning scenery. The two loops can deliver all that and more. Ride, for example, the famous Golden Triangle, at the Mekong River – the border between Thailand, Myanmar and Laos, to take a long-tailed-boat trip and short visit to a small village in Laos.

Ride the famous highway No. 1148, ranked as one of the top 10 best riding roads all over the world. This amazing motorcycle road takes us through fabulous mountain scenery to Nan.

Ride along the unique panorama of the border between Laos and Thailand. Cross the Sirikit dam reservoir on a wooden ferry and visit the mountainous scenery of the unseen Phrae.

Ride off-road open mountain double track and great jungle single track with over fifty river crossings in one day – this is just about the best trail riding anywhere in the world. Ride with us the true bikers paradise!

This 12 DAY TOUR does include the arrival and the departure day, this means we will actually have 10 days on the road. The hotel on the arrival and departure day is of course including the tour price.
