About this Cycle Tour

Loei is one of Thailand's best-kept cycling secrets. Nestled up against the Laos border in northeast Thailand where the mountains meet the Mekong rive, Loei is blessed with a diverse, beautiful landscape and excellent roads that cut gloriously through national parks and river valleys.

Our short but action-packed cycle trip has been designed for road bikers to see the best of the province in just four days, taking a loop from Loei we ride 350km through Phu Ruea National Park, meandering along the Mekong River to charming Chiang Khan before cutting back through the hills to Loei. While it is home to some impressive mountains, the slopes of Loei are not as steep or daunting as Thailand's far north and roll through a rural patchwork of hills and valleys, making for wonderful bike riding terrain

We have selected some delightful hotels and there will be time at the end of each day to hang up your helmet, have your guides and mechanics service your road bike while you relax and enjoy the mountain view or a few beers by the riverside. Our last night as in Chiang Khan, a photogenic Thai hamlet with charming wooden architecture and sweeping views of the Mekong River and the Lao mountains beyond. Every evening the town turns into a busy walking street market with buskers, artists and street-food vendors and some of our favourite restaurants and boasts an excellent craft beer pub - a fitting place to celebrate our cycling achievements!
