Mountain Biking is a great way to experience the beautiful Luang Prabang countryside with one-day tours taking you round the old town, across rivers, through rural villages and past stunning mountains. Beginners are welcome on most of the one-day trips which can be booked through travel agents such as Vietnam Bike Tours. More adventurous riders might enjoy a more challenging tour on a special off-road route to remote villages, exploring the rural side of Luang Prabang, crossing four rivers en route.
The tours have combined cycling with culture in a tour that takes you down country lanes to a pottery village where you will be served some local delicacies. Most day rides average four hours and include an English speaking guide, lunch and all equipment with groups usually limited to 20 people.
