International Flights: You’ll need to book a flight to Phnom Penh (PNH) airport to arrive on or before the morning of Day 1 of this trip. You will then fly out of Siem Reap (REP) on or after the final day of the trip. It is important you either: Book a flexible flight ticket that allows you to make amendments or cancel without penalty; Have travel insurance that you will reimburse you for out of pocket expenses incurred by a cancelled trip; Do not book your flights until we have notified you that this departure is guaranteed.
Personal Travel Insurance: It is a condition of booking that you obtain appropriate travel insurance that covers you for riding the same capacity motorcycle that you’ll be riding on this motorcycle tour. The insurance must cover emergency evacuation, medical bills, repatriation etc.
Riding Kit: Enduro / motocross style kit will be the way to go on this motorcycle tour, rather than adventure / road riding kit. We recommend you bring an extra layer and waterproofs to keep out the wet stuff. You'll also want some decent armoured protection and please do bear in mind that we will sometimes be riding on the road... 'dress for the slide, not the ride!'
Damage Waiver: This will remove your liability for any damages to the motorcycle, with the exception of damage caused by water or reckless riding.
Single Room: Single room accommodation is available for every night of the trip.Please see the 'Dates & Pricing' section for the price.
ATMs: Yes, there are ATMs in the larger towns, but not the villages. Don’t forget to tell your bank you are heading to Cambodia, as without this information they will most likely think some rogue hacker is dipping into your account and promptly block your card!
Wi-fi: Despite what you might expect, the internet and mobile coverage across Cambodia is excellent! There are a couple of overnight locations on this motorcycle tour where wifi might not be available… Even here, there will be decent 4G coverage.
Documents and licenses: To be legally riding in Cambodia you are required to carry your local driving licence, which must cover the size of bike you will be riding. This will also be a stipulation of any travel insurance company too. You will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). An IDP is basically an official, multi-language translation of your driving licence.
Riding experience: We’d like all of our riders to have at least two years active riding experience. As this tour is predominantly off-road, it is more than preferable if you have a good amount of off-road riding experience before booking up. Should you have any doubts, give us a call and we can talk you through it in more detail. You need to be comfortable riding a wide variety of terrain, including deep sand, steep rocky hills, rutted trails and gravel roads. A good level of fitness is also important. This tour is NOT suitable for inexperienced off-road riders.
Weather: Cambodia is a pretty hot country all year round. The dry season runs from November – May. The first 3-4 months of this season are less humid and generally cooler at night. April & May are very hot and humid months. The wet season runs from June – October. Don’t be put off though – some of the best riding is in the wet season… There is no dust, some muddy conditions are incredibly fun and the landscapes are filled with lush greenery and full rice paddies. That said, September and October are statistically the wettest months of the year – to ride out here during these months you must have a great sense of adventure as plans can change quickly! You must also be prepared to get very very wet and possibly go swimming with the bike.
Plug types: For Cambodia there are three associated plug types, A, C and G. Plug type A is the plug which has two flat parallel pins, plug type C is the plug which has two round pins and plug type G is the plug with three rectangular pins, in a triangular pattern.
Visa: Most nationalities need a visa. Whilst you can obtain a 30 day tourist visa upon arrival, we strongly suggest you obtain an e-visa prior to your arrival. The process is simple and visas are usually granted within a few days, but here’s the best part… when you land in Cambodia, you’ll be able to smugly walk past the long queues of tourists applying for their visas upon arrival! Follow this link for Cambodian entry requirements. This is link to the UK foreign office website – if you are not a UK resident, please search for the equivalent info from your home country’s foreign office. Visa costs, if applicable, are not included in the tour price.
Language: This offer is usually suitable for English and/or German speaking participants. Please enquire for language options.
Mobility: The offer is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. Please contact us for more information.


15-Day Off-Road Motorbike Tour of Cambodia

If you’re an experienced off-road rider and want the ultimate Cambodia adventure, this is your tour. Getting as far off the beaten track as is possible, we’ll ride deep into the jungle, spend a night sleeping in hammocks in a tiny village, spend some nights in luxurious resorts, float our bikes across the Mekong river on small wooden boats, ride island sand dunes, discover ancient lost temples, explore untouched villages and camp in the middle of the Mekong, swimming in the river at sunset and drying off around a roaring campfire.

While you will be spoiled with occasional luxury accommodation, we’ve designed this trip with ‘pure adventure’ in mind. It won’t always be comfortable, it won’t be easy and some days will be long. This trip is only for those that travel with an open mind, are experienced riders and are prepared to dig deep when the going gets tough. The risk of riding in the dark is real (all bikes are equipped with bright LED lights), the bikes may need to be carried across rivers and if we have problems in the jungle where our support vehicle can not reach us, we’ll all have to team together to make it out.

This motorcycle adventure ticks every box: culture, beauty, history, friendly locals, epic riding, amazing food, modern enduro bikes, an outstanding support team and adventure by the bucket load. Cambodia is a very special country, and there’s no better way to experience The Kingdom of Wonder than on this motorcycle adventure.



- Discover ancient lost temples.

- Cross multiple rivers on small rafts, longtail boats and ferries.

- A night in hammocks in a tiny jungle village.

- Visit Khone Phapeng falls on the Mekong River - the widest and largest volume set of falls in the World!

- Receive a good luck blessing from buddhist monks.

- Incredible off-road riding from start to finish.

- Explore remote villages, far off the beaten track - the 'real' Cambodia!

- Many many river crossings!

- Ride the sandy beaches alongside the Mekong river.

- Plenty of quirky bridges.

- Camp on a sandy beach on an island in the middle of the Mekong River.



Day 1: Arrive in Phnom Penh - Welcome to Cambodia!

Your adventure in Cambodia begins as soon as you touch down at Phnom Penh international airport! Our friendly tuk tuk driver will be waiting for you and will transfer you to your hotel, weaving through the madness of the city traffic en route.

You’ll be met by your team leader in the morning. He will have arranged a tuk tuk tour to visit the Killing Fields and S21 Genocide Museum where you will learn all about Pol Pot’s barbaric regime back in the late 1970’s where an estimated 3 million Cambodian people lost their lives. It’s not a ‘nice’ day out, but it’s one we strongly recommend as it is an incredibly eye opening experience that will stick with you throughout the rest of your journey across this beautiful country.

In the afternoon we will all get together on the rooftop of your hotel (which by the way has the nicest rooftop swimming pool in the city!) for a welcome briefing. We’ll talk you through the entire trip, the various safety considerations and introduce you to the rest of the team and fellow riders. Following this, we will board a private boat that will take us out onto the Mekong and Tonle Sap rivers to enjoy a few cold drinks as we watch the sun set behind the Royal Palace. We’ll then be dropped off at an excellent riverside restaurant for dinner. Welcome to Cambodia!

Accommodation: 4* hotel with the best rooftop swimming pool in the city

Included Meals: Lunch, Dinner

N.B. While you are welcome to schedule a flight to arrive in the morning of this day, you'd likely arrive too late to participate in the day's activities. We'd therefore recommend you arrive a day earlier. We'll happily arrange extra nights accommodation for you at the same hotel, but please note this is not included in the tour price. Airport pickup is still included if you arrive a day or two early.


Day 2: Phnom Penh - Kirirom National Park 140km

Early in the morning to avoid the madness of rush hour traffic, we’ll hop into a minivan for a 30 minute drive out to our workshop, which is closer to the edge of the city. The bikes will be lined up waiting, all clean, shiny, warmed up and ready for adventure! We’ll have time to make some adjustments to the bikes if required, and then it’s time for your first daily briefing before hitting the road!

The road doesn’t last long though, as we’ll be onto the dirt within the first half an hour and as the day progresses the countryside will feel more and more rural and get more and more beautiful. We’ll pass through villages, weave through herds of cows, ride alongside train tracks & rice fields and be cheered on by the local children as we go.

We’ll meet with our support vehicle at a Buddhist pagoda, where our driver will have prepared a picnic lunch for us. After we’ve devoured our sarnies, we’ll receive a blessing from the local monks… They’ll splash us and our bikes with holy water as they chant words that none of us foeriegners understand. Roughly translated, they’ll be wishing us the best of luck for the trip ahead. But please understand that these blessings do not make you invincible… Previous riders have been known to ride off of the trail into a trench full of muddy water and frogs within minutes of leaving the pagoda, so please exercise the same amount of caution, regardless of how blessed you feel!

After some more fantastic riding, we’ll arrive at our accommodation for the night & round off the day with cocktails in the pool. As far as first days go, this is a good one!

Accommodation: Resort with a swimming pool.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 3: Kirirom National Park - Sre Ambel 100km

Today’s ride is an absolute corker! We kick off with half an hour of paved road where we will refuel and ride up into the hills. Then it’s trail time! And man are these some good trails! We spend the morning riding tracks that wind through the pine forests, stopping briefly on top of a cliff to try and spot the giant hornbills that glide above the jungle beneath (in case you don’t know, hornbills are huge birds with big colourful beaks (think Zazu from The Lion king) – they’re simply beautiful!).

We have single track trails, two track trails, rocky sections, creek crossings and possibly some dodgy stick bridges (depending on the route we choose to take). As we descend, the pine forest merges into jungle and we find ourselves ducking beneath bamboo and trying not to decapitate ourselves on spiky vines. It’s an exhilarating ride that certainly requires your full attention!

The tracks in the afternoon open up a bit and we ride on red gravel tracks that vary from ‘nice and smooth’ to ‘steep, rocky and rutty’! We end the day with incredible views as we descend from the hills to our riverside accommodation.

Tonight we ‘camp’ next to a river. But this is more ‘glamping’ than ‘camping’, with proper mattresses and electricity in each of the tents. It’s a stunning location too and we can take kayaks out for a sunset paddle before being served dinner under the stars.

Accommodation: Riverside glamping.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 4: Sre Ambel - Choam 110km

We’ll enjoy breakfast next to the river before bidding farewell to our camp host. We have a big day on the trails today, but we ease into it with some cruisy red gravel roads to start the morning. We then turn off of the gravel, ride through a river and weave through the trails until we reach a tiny village named Kamlot. This is the ‘real Cambodia’ right here!

Sandy trails pass through more tiny villages before venturing back into the forest where there’ll be plenty of creek crossings and some rough rutty sections. It’s thirsty work and you’ll be ready to ride the easier gravel tracks when we pop out into the fields of sugarcane & tapioca that cover the surrounding hills.

We finish the day in a small dusty town at a basic, no frills guesthouse (we are very much in the back of beyond by now) and will enjoy a BBQ in the courtyard.

Accommodation: Basic guesthouse.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 5: Choam - Chrok La Eang Waterfall 100km

Leaving our guesthouse behind, we hit the gravel road and visit a particularly random Buddhist pagoda nestled into the side of a rocky hill, home to a monk who speaks surprisingly good English!

From here, we pass through plantations and rough rocky tracks that suddenly open up into wide sandy tracks. If you enjoy sand, you’re going to love this day! With the Cardamom Mountains to our left and Aoral Mountain to our right, we’re riding along a flat valley that frequently floods during the wet season. When it floods here, the locals make new single track routes around the flood on their scooters. What that leaves behind is a criss-crossing selection of winding trails that are an absolute joy to ride! Pick your own line, get up on the pegs and pin it.

We have multiple river crossings, bridges and many small Cambodia villages on the list today. These villages are picture perfect representations of the Cambodian countryside: buffalo lazily jingling through rice fields, stilted wooden houses, towering palm trees and kids playing in the rivers. It’s simply stunning and, if all goes to plan, we’ll be passing through some of the most picturesque villages as the sun is descending into the golden hour.

Today is another big day, so you may not be too excited about the fact that we’re camping tonight. But when you jump into the river with a cold beer at the end of it and then enjoy a BBQ next to a campfire beside the water, it all makes perfect sense. It’s a beautiful way to an epic day and the sound of the flowing water will surely ease into a good night’s sleep on your comfy air bed.

Accommodation: Riverside camping. Private tents with air mattresses.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 6: Chrok La Eang Waterfall - Kampong Thom 130km

This morning is a real mix of terrain, starting with rough rocky trails through the bush that gradually get less rocky and more sandy. These are old trails that have been used by the local villagers for the past hundred years or more, evidenced by the fact they cut so deeply into the land, often providing towering walls of dirt either side of us as we cross small creeks.

Today we cross the Tonle Sap River. The flow of this river changes twice per year, flowing between the mighty Mekong and Tonle Sap lake – the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia. We board the ferry at Kampong Chhnang and enjoy a 20 minute cruise across and along a number of smaller branches of the river before we land in the province of Kampong Thom.

We wind down the afternoon on easy dirt and paved roads, cruising through villages and small towns, navigating herds of cows as we go.

We finish our day in Kampong Thom town where we will stay for two nights and enjoy a well earned rest!

Accommodation: Resort with a swimming pool.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 7: Kampong Thom: Rest Day and Beng Mealea temples

Take some time to relax by the pool in the morning, take a stroll along the river into town or get a massage. In the afternoon, we will take a minivan out to the Beng Mealea temple site and spend a bit of time exploring these impressive ancient temples. We’ll of course bring a cool box full of cold drinks with us so that we can sit among the temples and enjoy a couple of cold ones as the sun sets into the surrounding jungle. Perfect.

Accommodation: Resort with a swimming pool.

Included Meals: Breakfast.


Day 8: Kampong Thom - Prey Lang Wildlife Sanctuary 130km

Well rested, we’ll hop back on the bikes and ease back into the riding with a morning of cruisy gravel roads alongside rivers and rice fields as we head towards Prey Lang Wildlife sanctuary.

Prey Lang is a protected and entirely undeveloped area of thick forest and jungle, home to an immense variety of biodiversity, including many wild cats, bears, deer and tarantula. Conveniently, it’s also home to some of the best riding trails in the country!

The trails are just incredible, flowing through the thick forest, through creeks and across bridges. It’s the kind of riding that will have you laughing with joy within your helmet.

There are no guest houses here, no fancy resorts, no restaurants and definitely no other tourists. This is as rural as Cambodia gets, with even very few locals living here. There are a few tiny settlements though, and tonight we’re camping in one of them…

There’s no phone signal, no showers, no toilet, no bed and no electricity. We can not get our support vehicle in here, so we’ll have kitted out each bike with saddlebags containing a hammock, sleeping bag, rain sheet, food and other essentials. We’ll bathe in the river, light a campfire, warm our bellies with rice wine, cook up some noodles and fall asleep with the sounds of the jungle around us. While this may not sound like everyone’s cup of tea, but trust us, this is the real deal and it’s an experience you’ll never forget!

Accommodation: Hammocks with built in mosquito nets, rain sheets and sleeping bags.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 9: Prey Lang Wildlife Sanctuary - Mekong Island 120km

Wake up to the sounds of chickens scratching around our camp and dogs playing. We’ll get some coffee on the go and slowly pack up the camp as the sun shines golden light through the trees. We’ll say goodbye to the locals, strap up the saddlebags and hit the trails.

This morning, it’s more of those incredible trails that we had yesterday afternoon. Riding through thick jungle with towering trees, plenty of water crossings, more dodgy bridges and mile after mile of phenomenal riding.

The forest will slowly open up and we’ll start to see more signs of civilisation. We’ll stop for refreshments and fuel in a small dusty town – never before will a cold Coca Cola have tasted so good!

We then spend the afternoon on gravel roads as we ride all the way to the Cambodia-Laos border, where the Mekong river descends the Khone Phepheng falls which, by volume, are the largest set of falls in the world. They’re also the widest in the world, spanning over 10km from one side to the other, and they’re beautiful.

After sleeping in a hammock last night, you may not be thrilled about the prospect of spending a night in tents tonight. But again, please trust us on this one… The experience is well worth it! Small wooden boats will be waiting as we arrive at the river edge and these will take us over to a sandy beach on a small island in the middle of the river. Our campsite awaits and a local family will be ready to fire up the BBQ and light the campfire.

The sunsets here are stunning and we guarantee that swimming in the Mekong River as the sun goes down is something you’ll never forget! Then dry off around the roaring fire, crack open a cold Beer Lao and get ready for a feast.

Accommodation: Camping on a sandy beach on an island in the middle of the Mekong River. Private tents with air mattresses.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.

N.B. For tours in June/July, we will not camp on the island due to higher chances of rainfall. Instead, we will stay at a hotel a little further up the river, overlooking the Khone Phapheng Falls.


Day 10: Mekong Island - Banlung 140km

Wake up to the sun rising over Laos and hop back in the boats to chug back over to a village on the mainland. We’ll have a chance to use the facilities before collecting a packed lunch of Lao sticky rice, dried beef and chilli paste (trust us, it’s delicious!). We’ll then load our bikes onto the boats and travel 20 minutes down the river, crossing to the other side.

A mix of trail and gravel roads will see us riding through small villages until we reach Siem Pang, where we will board a small ferry to cross the Sekong River. From here the real trail soon starts, and these trails are just epic! Fast and sandy, where you can get into a real flow and choose your line.

It’s then time for yet another river crossing on a small village, which lands us on a sandy beach. We then hit the ‘super trail’… Similar to the previous trail, but even better. It’s relentlessly fun and it’ll leave you sweaty, exhausted and smiling.

The trail turns into an extremely rough and rutty road that slowly improves into a smooth gravel road that leads us into Banlung, which will be our home for the night. We’ll stop briefly at a tall waterfall en route… Our local partner & guide, Vut, grew up around here, so he’ll no doubt tell you some stories about this place, including him ‘borrowing’ his Dad’s AK47 as a teenager!

Accommodation: Resort with a swimming pool.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch.


Day 11: Banlung: Rest Day

It’s another well earned rest day, so take the morning to relax by the pool and enjoy the views. Alternatively, take a tuk tuk into town to explore the local market.

In the afternoon, we’ll take a couple of tuk tuks out to Yeak Laom – a volcanic crater lake surrounded by jungle. We’ll then go out to a restaurant with excellent sunset views.

Accommodation: Resort with a swimming pool.

Included Meals: Breakfast, dinner.


Day 12: Banlung - Kratie 200km

Today is a BIG day. We will therefore have wheels rolling at first light, kicking off with some beautiful and easy dirt roads that cruise through rubber plantations. We’ll meet with our support vehicle for coffee and breakfast and prepare ourselves a big sandwich to throw in our backpacks for later in the day.

We will cross the Srepok River at Lumphat – a town that was heavily bombed during the Vietnam war due to it’s significant location on the infamous Ho Chi Minh Trail.

The rest of the day is a mix of everything! Gravel roads, sandy trails, singletrack, rocky creek crossings and thick forest. It’s an awesome ride that finishes with a stretch of paved road as we roll in the Kratie town. Here we will meet our privately reserved ferry waiting to take us across to an island in the middle of the Mekong River. It’ll drop us off on a big sandy beach, leaving us to ride up the beach to reach our accommodation for the night: a traditional style resort of stilted bungalows with an amazing swimming pool.

Accommodation: Traditional resort of stilted bungalows with a swimming pool.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 13: Kratie - Ta Seng 220km

We catch the ferry back over to the mainland and then take a short ride up the river. Here we will jump into small wooden boats and head out to spot the endangered Irrawaddy river dolphin. These dolphins live in a few different locations across Southeast Asia, but here in Cambodia there are fewer than 100 of them still in existence. They’re now heavily protected, with strict laws that prohibit net fishing anywhere near this location on the Mekong.

We then cross to the west side of the Mekong on another ferry and spend the rest of the day riding a mix of red dirt roads, excellent trails and the occasional short section of paved roads through small towns.

Tonight we stay in a village named Ta Seng. We’ll stop off at our accommodation to get cleaned up before taking a short ride out to a nearby temple, riding past a couple of smaller temples along the way. Preah Khan is a 1,000 year old temple surrounded by thick forest, and it is just beautiful! We’ll arrive in good time to witness the sun set behind the temple arch, with no other tourists in sight and nothing but the sound of the jungle around us. This is a very special place.

We will spend the night in a homestay, owned by Mr Duhl – the village chief. It’s basic accommodation with everyone sharing one giant bedroom and your shower being a bucket, but this is Cambodian village life and it’s all part of the experience!

Accommodation: Basic homestay. NO private bedrooms and only cold bucket showers.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 14: Ta Seng - Siem Reap 115km

It’s the final riding day of this epic adventure across Cambodia! We start the day with a stroll into the village for a local breakfast and then hit the dirt.

We’re straight onto the trails and soon pass an ancient temple perched right next to the trail. These are our favourite temples… Sure, Angkor Wat and the other major temple sites in Cambodia are impressive, but there’s something special about discovering these lost temples in the forest, where no other tourists ever visit, knowing that the only reason we’re witnessing such incredible sights is because we rode our dirt bikes on challenging trails to get here.

Today we’re mostly riding on Cambodia’s very own ‘Route 66’, but unlike the US version, this route is an ancient highway that connects Preah Khan with the city of Angkor (now Siem Reap). The ancient route has now deteriorated into a fantastic trail that winds through the forest, crossing rivers and cutting through fields. While there is little evidence of the physical highway left, we do occasionally ride over impressive 1,000 year old bridges that are still standing strong.

We’ll roll into the beautiful town of Siem Reap, feeling quite heroic after such an epic journey. We’ll go out for a celebratory dinner and possibly a few celebratory drinks. For those that want to keep the party going, there’s of course the lively Pub Street!

This ride is truly a once in a lifetime adventure and a fantastic way to experience the Kingdom of Wonder!

Accommodation: 5* hotel.

Included Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner.


Day 15: Siem Reap: End of Tour

It’s the end of the tour from our side, but if this is your first time in Cambodia we strongly recommend you extend your stay by an extra day, allowing you time to take a tuk tuk tour of the impressive Angkor Wat and surrounding temples. We can of course arrange this for you.

Our team will load the bikes onto the trailer, bid you all farewell and commence the drive back to our base in Phnom Penh, arranging your transfers from the hotel to the airport before we depart.

Accommodation: Not included.

Included Meals: Breakfast.
