Awesome active trip! Such an authentic experience of Thailand. The activities are well organised and well supported. There's a chance to do washing between each leg. Would definitely recommend hiking boots for the trek and a gel seat cover for the bike leg for comfort. The food is delish! You get some days off to enjoy sightseeing or rejuvenate with a massage! Such a well balanced trip, came back feeling refreshed! Highly recommend!

This tour is a great way to see the regions and towns of northern Thailand, and sometimes away from the tourist traps. It is an active tour, but you should be okay if you regularly exercise, depending on the group’s ability you keep pace with eachother. Remember to pack hiking boots, sneakers, bathers, cycling shorts, hat, mozzie spray and sunscreen, in March and there was no rain but wet season is coming so a rainjacket. There is time for laundry after each section.
