Itinerary & Key Points

80% off road, it’s a trail riding tour, so the focus is riding your motorcycle on as much dirt as we can. Rather than blasting town to town, we can get more trail riding without going as far. You’ll see big cities and small villages as we ride the trails. The jewel is Luang Prabang, with so many great trails combined with a cool city, you’ll immediately feel at home. Tour Code 004.

Day 1: Luang Prabang to Xayabury.160 Kilometers 4-5 Hrs. riding.  This tour is all about the trails, so it’s up early and we head off to more great trail riding, crossing the Mekong onto the remote areas of Luang Prabang countryside, different languages used out here, such a diverse place, more great riding. Overnight in a Local guest house.

Day 2: Xayabury to Paklai. 160 Kilometers 6-7 Hrs riding.  Today, seeing us go through the protected area of the Nam Phouy National Park with picturesque countryside and remote trails, really is a beautiful ride in this protected area.

Day 3:  Paklai to Muang Fuang. 140Kilometers  5-6 Hrs riding. Another day of off-road trails as we head for the delights of Muang Fuang, which has risen in popularity of late, it’s a stunning area, and the trail to get here won’t disappoint either. we will overnight in a local guest house by the river.

Day 4: Muang Fuang to Vang Vieng. 120 Kilometers 5-6 Hrs riding.  Today we’ll take a shorter day although the trail to get here is not an easy one, so we’ll see how the day goes. Hopefully we can arrive in Vang Vieng for the afternoon and enjoy the atmosphere of this buzzing town. The Amsterdam of the east as we call it.

Day 5: Vang Vieng to Luang Prabang. 188 Kilometers  5-7 Hrs. riding.  Our last day on the trails together, fully rested after yesterday’s early finish? We have a blazing last day for you, more cool trails taking us back into Luang Prabang, where the tour will end. Tour & Services Finish.
