Overview

What to expect

This weeklong adventure guides you and your family through one of Asia’s most welcoming countries, from Siem Reap to the riverside capital of Phnom Penh. Setting off from Angkor Wat, you can watch the sun rise over the temples complex before continuing to Battambang – a bustling town with colonial landmarks, riverfront stalls and a vibrant market

Easy cycle rides are balanced with exciting activities and attractions, like the Phare Circus in Siem Reap. On day two you can kayak on Tongle Sap Lake, and when you reach Phnom Penh you can try net fishing, rickshaw rides and island hopping. You’ll be riding on high quality bikes, with tag-alongs available for 4-6 year olds, and child seats for little ones. This tour is best suited to families with prior cycling experience but the pace is relaxed, the terrain is mostly flat, and there’s a big focus on safe family fun.

  • Ride around the temple complex of Angkor Wat
  • Authentic villages and fascinating river islands
  • Kayaking, fishing and rickshaw rides in Phom Phenh
  • Easy cycling and child-friendly distances

Literally holiday of a lifetime – the whole family rated it best ever. Amazing guide - charismatic, generous, informative. Even my 12-year-old managed the 80 km of the tour with his smiling encouragement.
