tour description

Duration: Approx 08:30 - 17:00 hrs.

Head out on a leisurely 30 km bicycle ride through the beautiful countryside north of Chiang Mai. The day's starting point is the interactive Elephant POOPOOPAPER park. Wander through the outdoor museum and learn about the fascinating process of converting Elephant dung to paper. Participants will have the opportunity to roll up their sleeves and join together with local artisans to participate in the head-turning process!

From here, after a short briefing from your professional cycling guide, we'll set off along the rural roads of the magical Mae Sa valley. With panoramic views of rice fields and local village life encounters. The ride is exhilarating but still flat and easy.

We finish at a local temple and then enjoy lunch in a farm-style restaurant on the banks of the Ping River. Afterwards, take a relaxing cruise down the river where we provide some local snacks, soft drinks and local beer as part of the price. The boat trip provides a different perspective of Chiang Mai and riverside life, ending at the sparkling temple, Wat Chai Mongkhon.
