What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Cycling and Zipline Adventure from Chiang Mai

Cycling and Zipline Adventure in Chiang Mai

After morning pickup at your hotel, head with your private guide to the lush outskirts of Chiang Mai where you stop to pick up your bikes. After a safety orientation, follow your guide through the quiet roads of the Thai countryside where you can see glittering temples, rice fields dotted with water buffalo and vibrant local markets. Slow down to snap pictures and stop for a chat with a monk at a Thai temple.

From there, pedal to Tweechol Botanic Garden. The hidden gem outside of Chiang Mai has themed sections connected by a series of paths that are perfect for cycling. Ride through the orchid garden to admire a small waterfall and koi fish pond, then head to a spectacular rose garden. Marvel at the elaborate topiaries including a dinosaur-shaped shrub, or see live animals in the small zoo. Pay close attention to the traditional houses exhibited in the garden and a small museum; the structures give you a look into Lanna culture. Once you’ve covered the grounds, switch to pedal boats and cruise around the garden’s tranquil lake.

After relaxing over a Thai buffet lunch, head to Mae Sa Valley for your next adventure: ziplining through the trees!

Receive a safety talk and get fitted in your safety harness, then follow your expert guides to begin! Soar from platform to platform on 16 different ziplines that take you through the jungle for bird’s-eye views and fun thrills. Challenge yourself by crossing a rotating log or a zigzag walkway. You are strapped into a safety line at all times so there is no danger of falling and you can quickly gain confidence about being high up!

At the end of your adventurous day, your guide returns you to your Chiang Mai hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

We were met at our hotel and was taken to the Botanical gardens where we picked up our bikes. The bikes were not the most comfortable and only after 30 mins my husband was very uncomfortable. They need to have padded seats! We cycled around the botanical gardens which was quite nice and then went on a paddlow, which for us was not what we wanted to do, but if you had children perhaps would have been fun. We then cycled out of the botanical gardens and went along the main road only a short distance until we turned off down a little road and which took us to the rice fields. We kept stopping at small places, where they made wooden figurines, and paper making which we weren't really interested in. There wasn't much cycling really and was disappointing. We stopped at a restaurant for lunch but it was closed so we were taken by car to another restaurant which was also closed. Third time lucky but the restaurant was on the side of a major road, not ideal. Disappointed with the cycling although we did get to see some nice scenery. The Zipline Adventure was fantastic. After being scared/nervous at the height and walking off the platform for the first couple of times, after that it was just brilliant. Enjoyed it very much and great being so high up in the forest. Our two guides were great and spoke good English. Very enjoyable afternoon. I would give the cycling 2 stars and the zipline 4 stars.

We took a 20km cycling tour around Chiang Mai's botanic gardens and the surrounding countryside, both beautiful places to cycle. A leisurely boat paddle and the feeding of animals within the botanical gardens was also included in the tour - a lovely surprise that we didn't expect but certainly worth doing. The team took great care of us. Not only did they easily accommodate our heights with the bicycles provided, provided us with fruit breaks and gave us recommendations for dinner, but they also provided us with great insights into everything we were seeing, including local history, knowledge and introductions to the local people. The lunch stop on the tour was also excellent. So many times on tour is one disappointed with the lunch provided - usually another production styled tasteless buffet. The restaurant we were taken to provided individual service and used only the freshest of ingredients. An excellent reward to the hard peddling we just endured in Thailand's heat. Thanks Would recommend the team to anyone.

3 star rating: Worth doing April 2015

We were picked up from our hotel, and lucky for us, our guide handed us a print out of the itinerary fairly quickly as it was WRONG. He then spent considerable time trying to call people to find out what to do as we had already done everything on the itinerary he had been given. We eventually made it to the zipline adventure, though encountered delays as they were expecting us in the afternoon, not the morning. Ziplining was awesome and I'd highly recommend it. However, due to the stuff up we then had to do our cycle tour in the afternoon heat and it was a killer. Would have been far more enjoyable in the morning, as per our purchased itinerary. Our guides on the cycle tour Franz and George were just lovely and very knowledgable. The two activities themselves were very enjoyable however it was extremely frustrating that our itinerary was mixed up and took some time to get to the bottom of the situation.
