Description

The Laos bicycle tours are Red Spokes most popular cycling holidays. Laos is a beautiful, quiet country, still relatively untouched by western values. It is mountainous and land-locked, with a population of just 6 million who have a reputation for being amongst the most welcoming and friendly people in the world. The Red Spokes cycling holiday in Laos offers spectacular scenery and a rich and diverse cultural experience. What better way could there be to see Laos than the view from a bicycle?Our cycling holiday begins in the Laos capital city Vientiane. Situated on the banks of the Mekong river, Vientiane has a relaxed, elegant charm. From here you will enjoy some of the most breathtaking scenery in Asia, mountain biking towards Northern Laos. We travel through a rural landscape to Nam Ngum, then cycling on to Vang Vieng. We enter a landscape of stunning limestone karst formations as our journey continues on via rolling hills to the historic city of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This ancient, royal city full of exquisite Buddhist Temples, where time seems to stand still, is a magical place to explore and relax.Cycling north out into the mountains towards Oudomxay we visit a Hmong village school which Red Spokes has been supporting for a number of years. From here it�s on to Ban Nalay village where we will be treated to a traditional Laos homestay amongst the community; you will be hosted by the Laos villagers who perform a traditional Basi ceremony. Red Spokes supports Ban Nalay community projects as a means of contributing to village development. This part of the Laos bicycle tour will give you an insight into the traditional way of life and work, weaving and cotton-producing and the culture of the Tai Lue people. Our cycle trip continues to the Mekong river for a boat journey through glorious scenery back into Luang Prabang where the Laos mountain bike holiday finally ends.
