Thailands "Ultimate" Enduro Motorbike Tour
The Ultimate Enduro
The "Ultimate Enduro" Motorcycle Holiday In Thailand
An extension to our original Burma Border Tour adding more technical trails extending further down the Salween River through more refugee camps on the Burmese border with a special BBQ night on the edge of a crystal clear river included.
The extra days riding included in this 9 day 8 day package (7 full days riding) allow us to show you the Ultimate Thailand off road experience encompassing everything we can possibly throw at you. This is the biggest tour we operate and pretty much the maximum we can do on these type of trails.
We suggest to see our Burma Border tour and if you feel you want more book this trip.

Salween River Boat Trip
One of the days riding involving many river crossings we have the option to include a (very slightly) more relaxing day riding through valley creeks over 52 river crossing then loading the bikes onto a small scorpion tail boat and cruising up the Mighty Salween river splicing Thailand & Burma.
This trip is an optional extra and a good experience and requires us to make a slight detour to the trip. There is no guarantee we can do this as the Thai and Burmese army often have curfew on the river but if available will cost each rider around $30 USD or less depending on how many boats are required.
Please let us know if you are interested in this before you arrive in Chiang Mai.
Chiang Mai was founded in 1296 as the new capital of Lanna, its location on the Ping River (a major tributary of the Chao Phraya River) and its proximity to major trading routes contribute to its historic importance in Thailand
The 6th largest city and largest in the north and known as the "Rose Of The North" Chiang Mai offers a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of Thailand's Capital, Bangkok with a more relaxed friendly attitude.
There are many sights for travellers to see and do from over 100 buddhist temples in the city and close proximity, cooking classes, adventure activities from rock climbing, paragliding and zip lining and renowned as the capital for motorcyling in Thailand.
We advise adding an extra night or two to your schedule to enjoy Chiang Mai to it's fullest and delighted to arrange this for you.
A favourite location for our crew and customers and why we include it on many of our motorcycle tours.
Karen Hill Tribe Lodge is owned by a small Chiang Mai based company but run and operated by the Karen people and many of the profits going back into the village. A high chance we will have the lodge to ourselves as many travellers find the journey too difficult in a 4x4 from Chiang Mai but for us on motorcycles it's a dream destination.
Rooms are basic but tastefully done in traditional Karen style, comfortable beds and hot showers but its not about the accommodation here, it's the un-spoilt traditional village, the Karen people, the forests with wild Gibbon and the tranquility a unique experience many travellers crave for.
Sit beside the fireplace with a cold beer or wine and enjoy the stunning surroundings.
Mae Hong Son
Nestled in a valley in the Shan Highlands Mae Hong Son was formerly part of Mawkmai State, one of the Shan States of Burma founded in 1767 and still today follow the main traditions of the shan rather than the Thai people.
Until fairly recently Mae Hong Son was almost cut off from the rest of Thailand except for the 5-7 days trip to Chiang Mai over what is now known as the 'Mae Hong Son Loop', originally built by the Japanese during WW11 to for armoury movement into Burma to fight Burmese and Indian allies. Today it's one of the most incredible motorcycle roads in Thailand and one of the top road in the world for riders.
Mae Hong Son city is the capital of the Province with an urban population of just over 7000 inhabitants (as of 2018) however the province is one of the largest in Thailand with a population of 53,000 many ethnic tribes and still making it one of the least poplulated provinces in the country.
Inner city has a few small bars, plenty of restaurants and a walking town in peak season (Nov-March) where you can buy many crafts homemade by the tribal people and sample Thaland's famous street food.
Of all our days riding the most exciting and most technical is the Burmese border. Here we ride deep valleys banked by steep mountain cliffs, bamboo lined creeks and more river crossings than you can count and a remote refugee camp, one of the days outstanding rides.
If we're lucky there is a chance to cross into the Shan state in Burma but not guaranteed.
On the last but one day and after a great off road day on gnarly trails along the sensitive Myanmar border we settle into a stunning national park for the evening located directly on the Ngam River. By the time we arrive our support team would have prepared our rooms in national park headquarters and prepared our Al Fresco dining area alongside the river. Roast succulent pig is on the menu this evening with a full eski of ice cold beers and wine and on all on us tonight. Enjoy.
