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 knowledge, authentic care, pride, knowledge, and respect for the culture illustrated by the guides made this extraordinary and unforgettable experience that much richer.

I just want to reflect how beautifully Danny and Dominic led us. We were only three, two guys and me, a female. So such a small team and such a gender ratio given the two guys were male could have made this an awkward trip. On the contrary, the sense of family, they ate with us, basically made themselves part of our journey, above and beyond, was felt and recognized by the three of us on the tour. That made this spectacular.

Yes, the scenery, yes the cycling and the food and the culture. However, the highlight was the guides. Going to Danny's farm for lunch and meeting his family was fantastic. Having the longhouse experience, with the song and dance and intimate interaction with the people that live there was amazing. Going to the river to bathe there was an absolute dream. We all loved that moment. They were flexible, caring, adaptable, fun, informative, and just wonderful people. The kayaking was wonderful.

I really commend the guides and hope that you recognize and appreciate their remarkable service.

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