Tour details - Price & More

One of the greatest Off Road Motorcycles Tours In Thailand

Burma Border Tour - 8 Day 7 Night package
The motorcycle tour operates mostly within the Far North West of Thailand in Mae Hong province one of Thailand's least populated regions in a highest density jungle within the Shan Apalachian mountain range.  The tour begins and ends in Chiang Mai city Northern Thailand
This is an 8 day 7 night package with 6 Full days riding.

The first day and last day are for arrival and departures - On these 2 days you'll be staying in a mid range hotel in the center of Chiang Mai city - These are free days to do as you please.

The ride begins around 9 am the following morning of your arrival riding for 6 full days staying in different locations each evening - The last day of the ride returns back to Chiang Mai and you depart the following morning.

We highly recommend to ask us about arriving a day earlier especially after a long haul flight allowing you more time to recover from your flight before the ride begins.
Availability - Best Time To Travel
As with all our motorbike tours this tour only operates between November and February when the local conditions are optimum for this type of tour.  The absolute perfect time is December and January.
Is It Right For You...
This motorcycle holiday is designed specifically for off road experienced riders you need to be able to handle a bike off road in almost any situation.  You don't need to be a superstar though! - We can alter routes on the fly if your group want to us to but if that would be a question for you maybe check out our Chilled Jungle Tour and we'll adpat that to your needs.
The most important requirement is for all the group to ride as a group looking after your fellow riders and helping out if needed - The tour operates in Hill tribe country in very remote regions some mostly inaccessible even by 4x4 and being so close to the Burma border is controlled by the Thai army - 'That wasn't in the brochure" is a very common remark!!!   Be prepared for anything and everything!
Chiang Mai
You'll get private accommodation for the 2 nights in Chiang Mai unless you want to share with someone.
On Tour
You'll be riding in regions with very little tourist infastructure therefore, due to limited availability of accommodation we ask all members of the group to share rooms when on tour - We can arrange non sharing if you really need it depending on your group size but you would need to contact us about this when we plan your tour.

All rooms on tour are all Thai owned usually by local resdients wooden chalet style usually individual buildings, hill tribe lodges and small boutique resorts with some being a highlight of the tour.
You simply cannot go wrong with eating in Thailand though watch out for those chillies!

During the riding section of the tour (day 2 to 7) we cover your breakfast and lunch. - Remember we are travelling in the extremely remote regons so our only choices are local roadside eateries usually selling BBQ pork, fried rice,noodles etc but we can only stop at those type of places when we are close to a town.
Some days we'll be deep in the Thai jungles with no access to any restaurants at all - On those days we carry basic food similar to wartime rations (place smiley emoticon here) usually noodles when we can get the hill tribes to boil up water for us but considering they have no electricity or solar power thats not always an easy task.  Please remember on some days the routes are totally inaccessible to anything other than dirt bikes or boats - You may get a few hunger attacks on those days but trust us -It all comes good eventually.
Riding Gear
Our motorcycle tours are for experienced riders only so assumed you would have decent riding gear suitable for this type of tour - We understand how much of a pain it can be to pack full motorbike gear for international travel but we simply cannot hold enough riding gear to fit so many sizes but let's be honest,  do you really want to wear second hand gear multiple people have worn previoulsy in humid jungle conditions?
Full off road riding gear is required for protection - All our staff will be fully geared up!  Body protection including elbows, knees and chest, Proper off road boots, full face helmets and gloves.  We'll go into more detail when you reserve your dates.
Sight seeing off the bikes
This is a pure adventure tour getting you to regions many people would never experience -  Hill tribe communities cut off from the mainstream, jungle waterfalls, pure unadulterated organic nature and most importantly the ride which is simply incredible! - We avoid manufactured tourists traps on our tours and with this tour it's very easy as there is none and why so many people book this tour.
If you were looking to experience more off the bikes you may wish to look at our chilled Jungle tour Or our Dual Terrain tour operating in slightly less remote locations but with more option to do something off the bikes.
Guaranteed Dates
Due to the availability of our tours we often book out 12-18 months in advance but we will guarantee dates for you providing you give advance notice...

Even if you don't have the minimum group size as yet contact us as soon as possible - We'll pencil you in at the best available dates and hold your place on a first refusal basis - We won't ask for any deposit and we can also change the dates at a later time when you preceed with a reservation.. 

If you leave things to the last minute or you wait until you have all your group confirmed we maybe unable to gurantee any dates.
