On the northeastern side of Phuket island lies a village where pace of life is slow and untainted by mass tourism. Cycling around rural Phuket, you will discover how local inhabitants have lived here for generations. On your bike, you will explore various farms in the region. Here, the technique of rubber tree tapping and hand rolling into sheets are still commonly used. Phuket is renowned for its pineapples and you will see the plantations on the ride. You will navigate your way around villages and see the locals go about their daily lives.

You will take a break at the fisherman's restaurant to hop on a kayak and paddle your way through the lush mangroves. If you are lucky, you will be able to spot tiny red crabs crawling on the roots. You will end your active morning with a small trek to a gibbon rehabilitation center and take a short hike up a waterfall. Most of the ride is on paved country roads, with occasional dirt tracks as you're cutting through farms, and some sections on the main road. This is an active 18 km (11 mi) ride with some undulations and short hills to tackle.

You will be collected from your hotel in Phuket and dropped off there after the tour ends. There is a free transfer from hotels located at Chalong, Rawai, Nai Harn, Kata, Karon, Patong, Phuket Town, Kamala, Surin, Bang Tao, Layan & Laguna. All other areas additional transport charges apply.
