Know More about this tour

Your driver will pick you up in the early morning and we head out to the northeastern part of Phuket where we will start our journey through the countryside of Phuket. The ride will be an easy, relaxing one. During this half day tour, you will cycle for approximately 20 kilometers over both paved and some unpaved roads in lesser-known parts of Phuket.

Before our ride commences at one of the remote beaches on the island, our professional team will ensure that your bike will be set in line with your weight and height and a brief explanation on safety of course cannot be missed. Although we drive in more rural parts of Phuket, customers still require following certain safety measures to ensure that bike ride will be a very pleasant one.

The journey starts riding through small local villages which are a huge contrast of what Phuket is commonly known for. No high rises or shopping areas, this is the purest part of the Pearl of the Andaman. Witness locals doing their daily work while children play around, waving at you and showing their enthusiasm when you explore their home from your saddle.

En route, we visit Phuket’s Gibbon Rehabilitation Center, one of the great projects that work in keeping gibbons out in the wild and nurture them back to health. This non-profit organization ensures that love and care is given back to these poached primates before being released back in the rain forest. The cycling journey continues as we cross small country roads, some dirt and muddy tracks through palm, pine apple and rubber tree plantations. Plenty of opportunities will be given to snap some of this local landscape as a momentum. Do expect some hills here and there, yet we will take it easy so that all can complete and fully enjoy this pedaling experience on Phuket.  

You’ll be surprised at how little Phuket has changed in this part, compared to the bustling tourism hubs that are scattered around the island. The dirt tracks reach in the end a scenic waterfall for a short break before we ride further in the direction where we started.

The final stretch, traversing through pristine nature along Phang Nga Bay where we shortly will meet our deluxe minivan driver and the bicycle support team that will bring you back to your hotel in all comfort. We expect to be back at your hotel at around 1:30pm.

  • The bike tour was a really nice way to spend the morning. Being able to see some of the countryside and be way from the busy parts of Phuket was lovely. The two young men who led the ride or drove the back-up vehicle were friendly and knowledgable. Some of the terrain is quite rough so it's not a bike ride for beginner cyclists and a small degree of fitness is needed. Overall, a really good tour.

  • Excellent trip. Arrived to pick us up from the hotel at exactly the time advised on the booking. The bikes were of a very good quality and had been set up and assigned to individuals based on the the information we provided at the time of booking. We were four adults in our early fifties holidaying together. a couple of us had only been on a bike a couple of times over the past few years, but managed ok. The ride was on quiet country roads and scenic tracks through rubber plantations. The guides were fantastic - looked after us really well. Obviously the weather is always very hot so a reasonable level of fitness helps, but the guys always ensured we were well hydrated. The guides were with us on bikes - at the front and back of the pack only small groups are taken - and their minivan followed behind well stocked with refreshments for our regular stops. It's a fantastic, fun way to see a different side of Phuket away from the crowds - and a great to make new friends of all nationalities on the trip. The day after the trip we received some brilliant photos by e-mail taken by the guides during the tour - a great touch guys! Thanks James and the team - a superb, thoroughly enjoyable day out! I would highly recommend this professionally delivered tour.

  • Brilliant trip from start to finish.
