two ADV Outriders ride through mud on motorbike tour in Cambodia
Begin your adventure by riding west out of Phnom Penh to Kirirom National Park. There are some fun trails on the way down, and the park itself is home to a variety of local wildlife, a huge pine forest and some gorgeous waterfalls.

The Cardamom Mountains are largely covered in dense tropical rainforest, and are sparsely populated. The eastern slopes, however, are home to a number of cardamom and pepper farms. Test your riding skills on the rocky forest trails that snake through the region before spending the evening in Chiphat Eco-Village.

There’s some great riding to be had as you make your way west through the Cardamom Mountains on your way to Koh Kong. Until recently, this area was famous for being one of the most lawless parts of Cambodia—the Khmer Rouge are said to have been active there until as late as 1998—but the construction of a massive bridge over Kaoh Pao River that connects the country with Thailand has led to something of a rejuvenation.

The ideal place for our first exploration day, the southwest coast boasts some great riding and some awesome sights. From dense jungle and country roads to boat trips on the river, you’ll have a host of activities to choose from.

Head north, again through the jungles of the Cardamom Mountains, on your way to Promoy, a small town on the banks of the Pursat River. This is the greenest part of Cambodia, and there are roads here where you may not see another person for miles.
cruising through rice fields on motorbike tour in Cambodia
As you approach Battambang the mountains give way to flatlands, full of rice fields and small Buddhist temples. Once an important trading town, Battambang remains our favourite city in Cambodia after, naturally, Siem Reap.

The main road from Battambang to Siem Reap is fast, but, depending on the season, we may be able to explore some rice fields and paddocks and test our skills off road. Siem Reap itself is has some fantastic restaurants, and the Angkor museum is definitely worth a visit in preparation for Angkor Wat.

No visit to Cambodia is complete without a trip to the massive temple complex of Angor Wat. We’ll get a local guide and explore it and the gorgeous surrounding area by motorcycle, visiting ancient ruins, jungles, lakes and waterfalls–it’s spectacular.

Inclusions X Extras

Each of our guides has years of experience running motorcycle tours and is an expert on the local area.

All speak English and the local language, and guides who can speak other languages are sometimes available on request.

The cost of hiring your motorcycle is included in that of the tour. All running expenses, including fuel, are included as well.

All meals are provided, as are drinks and snacks along the way.

You’ll dine sometimes in your accommodation, sometimes at quality local restaurants.

Let us know in advance of any preferences or dietary requirements and we are happy to cater for these.

Accommodation is minimum 3-star quality.

Standard is a twin share room but on occasion (due to remote location) we will share one large, dorm-type room: in a stilt house or a yurt, for example.

All locations have been scouted beforehand and checked for cleanliness and good service.

Conditions in many of our destinations, in Asia, for example, may be really different from your home country.

Rain can be heavy, and start falling at a moment’s notice.

We’ll sort you out with a waterproof rain poncho and overtrousers where necessary.

We offer twin-share accommodation as standard. In most locations, though, we can arrange single occupancy if you prefer.

This comes at a small surcharge, but in most tour destinations is quite reasonable.

While most riders prefer to bring their own gear, we do have a limited range of extra gear (boots, gloves, armour and helmets, for example) in most of our tour destinations.

Naturally, whether or not we’ll be able to supply you with gear depends on size and availability.

We are happy to provide suggestions on pre and post-tour bookings in accommodation: knowing the area well, we know the best places to stay at all price points.

We can even book for you as an added extra without any service fee, sometimes even at a discount.
