Motorcycle road trip Thailand & Laos - Off-Road in Thailand

Motorcycle road trip Thailand & Laos

Off-Road in Thailand


Tristan, travel designer

He may be the youngest of our tour leaders, but his all-round profile makes him a true adventurer, passionate about bikes.

Are you a seasoned biker thirsty for adventure? Do you love the idea of riding on unbeaten tracks? Embark on an adventure, where you’ll discover a region of Thailand unlike any other. This 10-day motorcycle tour, with an off-road focus and intense pace, takes you on tracks where no motorcycle has ever been. We leave from Chiang Mai and gradually push deeper into the jungle on our trusty Royal Enfields. Riding almost only on jungle paths, trails and small tracks, our itinerary passes through the heart of Northern Thailand’s lush nature. Once trodden by elephants during the Silk Route era, this circuit takes us back in time from village to village, as we come across different mountain tribes.

D6 / Khun Yam - Mae Chem - 121 miles - 45% off-road

We break ourselves in gently for this long leg by heading south for around twelve miles on the famous road with 1,864 bends. This chain of beautiful large curves is a real feast for the eyes in the morning light. Then, it is time to go off-road! In true Red Bull Romaniacs style, learn to handle your old Royal Enfield on the country’s most difficult tracks. Overnight stay in a comfortable accommodation.

D7 / Mae Chem - Mae Sariang - 115 miles - 42% off-road

Yesterday’s leg was the perfect taster session for what’s in store today: the joys of the way-too-small tracks and frightening drops continue to enthral us today. It feels like we have lost our way as we have spent the last few days riding southwards. Villages such as Lahu, Lao, and Shan seem to become rarer and our presence stranger still. We get the chance to relax in Mae Sariang, on the banks of its river. Overnight stay in a comfortable hotel.

D8 / Mae Sariang - Hod - 127 miles - 60% off-road

We leave first thing and break ourselves in gently on the Mae Hong Son loop then change direction, heading east into the Mae Ngao National Park’s jungles. Now, our objective is to go over the two mountain ranges separating us from Op Luang National Park. These uninhabited jungles become our playground for the day. Overnight stay in a standard accommodation.
