Itinerary

Day 1

We meet you at the airport, and once settled in at the hotel, we use our favourite vehicles to explore the city. We bike to Kuching's oldest Chinese temple and continue along the river to the Astana, visiting the residence of the Governor of Sarawak and Fort Margherita.

Day 2

Our day starts with a visit to Semenggoh Nature Reserve, home for injured and orphaned orangutans. Then we cycle backroads through plan-tations, forests, rice fields, and farming villages. If lucky, we'll see the rare Raffelesia flower. We finish our ride at Annah Rais.

Day 3

We cycle through beautiful scenery to the Sarawak River and trade pedals for paddles. It’s a relaxing kayak downstream to a Dayak village for lunch. Then it's back on the bikes to ride to Siniawan, a town dotted with Chinese wooden houses.

Day 4

The road is flat but windy today, making it an easy and fun ride. We visit the Wind Cave Nature Reserve and follow Mt. Kubah to Matang Wildlife Centre for another chance to see orangutans in their natural habitat.

Day 5

We have a long ride today as we cycle along the coast to Lundu. At Gunung Gading National Park, we stop for a dip in a waterfall before riding to our beach resort. At the hotel, we'll have an opportunity see sea turtle hatchlings.

Day 6

We say goodbye to the baby turtles before heading out on a dirt backroad to the old trading post of Semantan. We arrive at the beach in time for lunch and have the afternoon free.

Day 7

Enjoy the sea before we drive back to Kuching. We take a cruise through the spectacular mangroves near Kuching to see exotic birds and animals before our farewell dinner.

Day 8

Depart Sarawak for a flight back home or you can extend your stay in Borneo.

Reviews

The portion of the ride along the beach was spectacular - something I couldn't imagine experiencing anywhere else in the world!

lovely country, good biking, with few van sessions.

Jenny ShawOctober 2015

Great way of seeing a country using back roads and meeting real local people. Bike riding is a far better way of doing this than vehicles and employing local guides is an ethical way of giving back something for the privilege of being wealthy enough to enjoy this experience. Very happy customer, please pass my happiness on to my guides.
