Exciting Cambodia Motorcycle Tours

An incredibly beautiful, fun and cultural motorcycle tour across Cambodia’s mighty Cardamom Mountain range. Starting off in the picturesque town of Siem Reap you will have the opportunity to visit the ancient temples of Angkor before saddling up for what will surely be one hell of an adventure!

With exciting off-road riding for both beginner and expert riders, we have options for everyone! You can choose some difficult riding in the rocky sections, or for those who want to take it a little easier, you can stick to cruising the winding dirt roads through the hills. Temples, big guns, rocky hill climbs, river crossings, spectacular views, rural homestays and of course, the beach… this ride packs an immense variety of experiences into a one week trip!

Day 1

Siem Reap

On this first day, we will be having welcome drinks at the hotel where you will meet the crew and your fellow riders while receiving a full briefing of the ride ahead. They will tell you everything you need to know about Cambodia motorbike travel.

You’ll also have plenty of time to explore the ancient temples of Angkor – the most important archaeological sites in Southeast Asia. Afterwards, we’ll all head out to dinner at an authentic Khmer restaurant to get a true taste of Cambodian flavor.

Day 2

Siem Reap - Battambang

185km - 6h of riding

Unlike other Cambodia motorbike tours, we will quickly leave the city behind, we’ll head west towards the Thai border. We’ll ride a variety of dirt roads and winding trails as we ride past lakes and alongside rivers. We’ll stop for lunch besides a large reservoir before continuing to the old French colonial town of Battambang. You’ll even have the chance to sample some of the local rice paddy rats at one of the roadside BBQs! How does rat sound to you? We hear it tastes just like chicken!

Battambang – Pramaouy

Our Cambodia motorbike adventure gets wild today as we enjoy some thrilling trail riding into the “sticky lands” way up in the Cardamom Mountains. We’ll be crossing rivers, dive down steep grades and absorbing breathtaking views as we make our way into the gorgeous hamlet of Pramaouy. At night, we’ll feast on a traditional style barbecue at the guesthouse and maybe even enjoy a little game of volleyball with the locals.

Day 4

Primary – Koh Kong

175 km

Our day of Cambodia motorbike travels jump starts as we wind through the jungle down an amazing dirt track. Brace yourself for adventure for we’ll be crossing the river on tiny wooden watercraft! We’ll be heading even deeper into the jungle as wind across creeks and hills ducking under the canopy and emerging out of the trail where we’ll relax for a few moments at the food of an amazing waterfall. Then we are back on the concrete roads as we make our way along the Thai border to Koh Kong where we’ll enjoy dinner and the night by the river.

Day 5

Koh Kong

After a few days of high-intensity riding, you’ll be ready for a little rest from our Cambodia motorbike adventure. Today is packed with great options. We can sunbathe on a beach, visit Koh Kong island, kayak through mangrove forests or relax at a beautiful riverside restaurant where we can borrow their kayaks and paddle out on the river and watch the fireflies emerge as the sun goes down.

Day 6

Koh Kong - Chiphat

130km - 6h of riding

Our best of the best Cambodia motorbike tours has two choices for you today: the easy road and the hard road. The harder route tackles the ‘old smugglers trail’ which is filled with steep and tricky rocky hills, lots of quirky bridges, river crossings, bamboo jungle and some really fun singletrack trails.

The easy route sticks to the beautiful smooth roads that wind through the mountains where you can visit the impressive Tatai waterfall along the way. Whatever option you choose, there is no better way to experience Cambodia motorbike travel. In the late afternoon we will take cold beers down to the river for a little swim and relaxation.

    Brilliant, keen for another!
    The reviews aren’t fake! I rode the cardamom mountain explorer while my better half was on a tour bus. We went every where the tour buses couldn’t go. I feel that we saw a good amount of the real Cambodia that most westerners won’t ever see.

    Toby the guide/owner is a brilliant bloke and has setup a great company. Everything was well organised. Breakdowns/flatties were managed like clockwork. Great team, great company. I’m interested in doing another!!!

    A once in a lifetime experience!
    Our groups aim was to experience the people and culture of Cambodia whilst touring the country on dirt bikes. The Team gave us an experience we will never forget. Our Lead rider VUT knew Cambodia like the back of his hand and we were fortunate to have him lead us on the adventure of a lifetime. The support team worked flawlessly to deal with any issues and create a seamless experience for our group. Our group consisted of riders of all levels from beginners to advanced and the Ride Expeditions Team catered for all riders. A once in a lifetime experience and Highly Recommended.
