About this Cycle Tour

A short hop from Chiang Mai puts you in the backyard of one of the region's most famous and sought-after inhabitants: the Asian elephant. Few creatures garner as much intrigue and wonder. And the national symbol of Thailand are revered for their strength and longevity, and in some cases worshiped for their association with Buddhist and Hindu beliefs. Once ubiquitous in Thailand, fewer than 2,000 wild elephants remain. To have the privilege to spend the afternoon with them is an incredibly special and memorable experience.

Reviews

We recently did the 'Elephant Tracks' cycling trip with SpiceRoads and it was brilliant!

We were picked up from the hotel by our guide and driver at about 8am, and started with a quick visit to PooPooPaperPark where we saw how they make paper products from elephant poo! (A great place to go with kids, as it has a crafty DIY session at the end).

From there we did about 30km cycling in the countryside...through villages and farms. Easy cycling pace, with very little traffic and it was wonderful to see the agriculture and local sights. We had one stop along the way for a quick healthy snack, which was provided.

Lunch was at a restaurant (we could chose what we wanted from the menu) and then we had another 3km cycle to the elephant sanctuary. This was so amazing, we got to walk with the elephants, feed them and helped give them a wash in the pond!! It was just incredible to be so close to these animals.

After the elephant park, we were driven straight back to the hotel for about 6pm.

We found SpiceRoads to be really well organised and helpful and our guide (Sert) was great. The bikes were in great condition and helmets and water bottles were supplied. Being able to leave bags/change of clothing in the van was also very handy.

After this trip, we also did another bike & cooking trip with SpiceRoads in Phuket and found them just as efficient and friendly there, so we would highly recommend them!!

There's a lot of elephant tours in Chiang Mai, my recommendation is to visit only ethical and cruelty-free camps: no elephant riding, logging, or doing circus show. The place we visited on this tour was soooooo amazing! Guide Sert and Driver Pao picked me up from my hotel then we ride on the quiet roads to the elephant sanctuary where I can see many happy elephants up close, feed them, and and give them a bath. The day was unforgettable. Thanks Sert and SpiceRoads.
