Cycling Tours with a Little Extra Something

Cycling tours are an adventure by themselves, and they offer a wonderful opportunity to explore new places and view breathtaking scenery. However you may find yourself wanting to experience a different mode of transport, even just for a couple of hours. If you do fancy taking a break from the bike, then there are plenty of other activities that you can combine with your cycling tour. Most of the activities below are fast, wild and exciting adventures which will ramp your cycling tour up a notch and give you some extra thrills on your adventure. There are many more activities that you can take part in but here are just a few examples of some of the great activities that you can include with your cycling tour:

Helicopter Tour

If viewing your spectacular surroundings on two wheels isn’t exciting enough, then why not take a helicopter tour and view them from the air. Helicopter tours give you the chance to view places from a completely different perspective and see things that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to see on the ground.

One of the most beautiful helicopter tours is in the mountains and valleys which inhabit Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. Taking your bike on board the chopper, you will reach peaks up to 3,5000m and then after disembarking you will make your descent- on your bike- of 1,300m through the grasslands which cover the vast landscape.

Helicopter tours give you a great chance to easily reach heights that would otherwise be very difficult to get to and to soak up the surroundings from a better vantage point. They also offer the chance to take a well-earned break from the bike for a short while as you cruise through the sky. This experience, Mountain Biking Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, offers a once-in-a-lifetime heli-biking combo that’s not to be missed.

Zipline

Just like the helicopter tour, the zipline is a great opportunity to get off the bike for a while and take to the air, albeit in very different circumstances.

A zip line gives an incredible adrenaline rush and allows for a very different perspective of the area you’re in. If you’re heading to Chiang Mai, then the Chiang Mai Bike and Zipline Adventure tour is highly recommended and fun way to experience this popular activity!

There is nothing quite so exhilarating as zipping over a river surrounded by the lush and green mountains and valleys of Mae Taeng. As adventures go, this one’s very exciting and certainly one for the adrenaline junkies.

Rafting

Make a big splash on your cycling tour by throwing in a rafting experience. If cycling through the vast green trails of Thailand and taking to the skies isn’t exciting enough then how about adding a water experience that is exhilarating, exciting and a little bit frightening?

The rafting experience on Chiang Mai Bike and Raft Adventure is a superb way to see the Mae Taeng mountains and valleys while having a great adventure down the grade three and four rapids. If you think this will be a relaxing break from your bike though then think again, because it’s a real action packed and physical adventure which isn’t for the faint-hearted. Another option is just around the neighborhood in Dalat, Vietnam with Biking and Rafting Dalat.

Rafting is not only a fun and exciting adventure, but it also builds teamwork, leadership skills and confidence. It’s also a very sociable activity to take part in if you are looking to meet new people and forge friendships.

Horse Riding

As if cycling, flying and rafting weren’t adventurous enough then how about adding horse riding to the mix? For thrill seekers who are looking for a bit of variety try heading to Mongolia where horses outnumber people in their native beautiful, natural and unspoilt habitat.

The Mongolian Steppe Adventure consists of cycling, trekking and horse riding and it is a fantastic way of exploring the diverse and vast landscape that Mongolia has to offer.

Cruise

If all of the activities above sound is a bit too exhausting, then cruising is the perfect antithesis to all of the above adventures on Ha Long Bay Cycle and Cruise tour. Explore the beautiful rivers and waterways which cover large parts of Asia at a leisurely pace. There’s no need to pedal, paddle or saddle up on these trips as you sail serenely through the stunning nature and beautiful backdrops which surround you.

Apart from those fun activities mentioned above, there are also hiking, trekking and paddling. Check out the list of tours below:
