Road Tours


Our signature motorcycle tour on the some of the greatest roads in Thailand in some of the most rural places in the kingdom plus some of the must visit places.

Our motorbike tour philosophy is to not follow the madding crowd but offer routes with exceptional riding, few other road users on perfect asphalt into some of the most stunning, rarely visited locations away from mainstream tourism. This tour has it all and more!

9 Days 8 night package with 7 full days riding on the famous 'Extended' Mae Hong son Loop with a few diversions onto roads recently opened only previously accessible by dirt bike. Now its the Adventure bikes turn with perfect black top with just a few rough bits here and there into stunning locations.

This motorcycle tour is for experienced riders looking for adrenaline rushing twisty roads in remote locations away from mainstream tourism.  Accommodation varies throughout from rustic highland lodges in the middle of no where, boutique resorts in small villages and a few exceptional Thai style resorts with a touch of class with all amenities and swimming pools balancing the more remote basic accommodation through the tour with some fine chilled out luxury in between.

You can choose a selection of bikes all adventure style as this is not the best route for more powerful sports bikes.

Reviews Summary (1)

Very Good Support

I did the outback bike tour in February 2016 with 6 other riders and it was the first time they had run this tour. Support team were really on it, made us all very welcome and took care of the bikes every night. Accommodation was basic at times but considering how remote we were it was pretty good but after the more basic accommodation the next night we were in a 3 star hotel so all in all pretty good. Food was fantastic and bikes all in good nick.
