Setting The Benchmark for Adventure Motorbike Tours Since 1999

True adventure in remote locations away from mainstream tourism - Thats what we do!


North West Route

ThailandChiang Mai
Dual Sport


A Perfect budget dual sport motorbike tour if you're looking for a full immersion into rural Thai life

Unlike our main dual sport motorbike tour this tour is more road biased giving you the opportunity to go a little further in a short period and visit stunning regions on the way.  Beginning in Chiang Mai we make our way on road high into the shan mountains arriving early afternoon to explore a very rural Hill tribe village and stay with them for the evening to learn more about there unique lifestyle and culture in a unique lodge by the side of a large forest 1300 meters above sea level teaming with wildlife including a troop of wild White Handed Gibbon.

The following 3 days will see you taking on some easy dirt trails over the mountains, stay in a Chinese village on the Burma border, visit remote waterfalls and ride the famous Mae Hong Son Loop, a motorcyclists dream road.

You need to be a capable road rider to join this tour but you don't need off road experience as the dirt trails are mostly ungraded roads though at times there maybe a few tricky sections to negotiate but nothing too severe.

This tour suits couple and small groups looking to experience as much of North West Thailand can offer in a short period of time and one of most popular short tours.

Full Marks

We were on the 4 day Motorbike Thailand dual terrain tour (we were definitely beginner off road riders). Their knowledge of routes and on-the-fly route planning was really impressive and tailored to suit our riding experience and style as well as showing us the techniques and tips to deal with dirt bike riding. We have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Motorbike Thailand to riders of all experience levels the tours are absolutely great! Once our riding has improved we would love to go back on a longer tour. It is very rare that I would give full marks to a tour - but this one gets it without question.
