Full description

8:30 AM: Pick up from your Chiang Mai accommodation and transfer to our cycling starting point, South of Chiang Mai.

9:15 AM: Get ready to start pedaling the rural countryside roads. After a brief review from your leader, set off and enjoy panoramic views of rice fields and encounters with local village life. You will be cycling about 12 or more miles, with plenty of stops to enjoy your surroundings.

12 PM: Finish the ride and relax with a delicious homemade lunch.

1 PM: Short cycling, or vehicle transfer to the river bank where we can start our paddling adventure. After a short briefing, we board the two-person sit-on-top kayaks and paddle our way down the river.

Along the river, we might encounter fishermen and see birds sometimes dropping from the sky to catch fish. Approximate paddling is 3.5 miles and should take approximately an hour and a half.

3:30 PM: End the paddling and meet the vehicle. Make a brief stop at the house for a change and enjoy a tea, before transferring to your accommodation in Chiang Mai.

Great excursion with bike tour and boat trip

Punctual collection and after a short drive a first stop at the Poopoopaper Park. Then straight to the starting point of our bike tour. Although the landscape is almost flat, my wife found it a bit too exhausting after an hour. But it was not a problem, because she could continue the excursion in the support vehicle. Our guide was really great. He was always trying to explain culture and landscape and there was enough time for photo stops, After the bike tour that I could do alone with the guide in the second part and an authentic lunch we went on to the boat trip back to Chiang Mai. The end of the boat trip was near the flower market. We then went through the market together, with a few tastings at the end. Many thanks to "3" for the great trip!
