Cycling in Phuket

Cycling in PhuketSouthern Thailand offers excellent cycling trails along country roads and off-road terrain. We offer daytours and multi-day tours. Mountain biking takes you to places not accessible with most vehicles. The reward is the satisfaction and sense of achievement, the breathtaking views over the sea and the mountains and the exhilaration of coasting down a hill with the wind in your hair. We stop near waterfalls where you can take a refreshing dive. Cycling in Phuket is an excellent interchange between a few days on the beach. We have tours that are suited for participants of all ages who can ride a bicycle and also for those who seek more physically challenging tours.


Tour 1. Koh Yai Noi
Full day cycling tour. Departure every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday

Cycling in PhuketKoh Yao Noi (“little long island”) is a sleepy island still enjoying a slow pace of life located in Phang Nga Bay, only 1 hour’s boat ride away from the international resort island of Phuket. The moment you step on to these islands the usual stress and worries of every day life melts away and the island pace of life gets a hold of you. While Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country these islands are mainly populated by peaceful Muslim communities that make a living from fishing, rice farming and rubber tree plantations. The recent arrival of tourism to these islands hasn’t affected the warm welcoming locals. Our bike tour in Koh Yao Noi will have us cycling through a small market town, rice paddies, past mosques and fishing villages, through areas of natural jungle rich in plant life and fauna.

This day trip bike tour combines small paved island roads with very little traffic as well as some off road dirt tracks through jungle areas and rubber trees. The distance covered is not excessive and anyone with a reasonable level of fitness will be able to enjoy this cycling tour. Some of the off road sections are hilly and can be a bit challenging but our route can easily be modified to suit the groups biking abilities. Unlike other tours on the mainland, our support vehicle does not join us on Koh Yao Noi. Our mini buses will provide transport from your Phuket hotel to the pier, once we arrive in Koh Yao Noi after a 1 hour scenic boat journey we will be by our self with out mini bus/support vehicle for this Bike Adventure Tour. Be prepared for a fun and challenging day.
