What You'll Do
DAY 1: Arrive in Kuching

Arrive in the capital of Sarawak, the charming old town of Kuching. Meet your driver at the airport and travel to your designated hotel in the old heritage area of Kuching. After checking in, take your time to meet us at the Paradesa Borneo office just a 2-minute walk from the hotel for a briefing of your trip and we’ll give you recommendations of restaurants and bars to spend the evening.

The rest of the day is free for you to explore the heart of Kuching, along the banks of the Sarawak River. Stay overnight at The Marian Boutique Lodging House.

Day 2 - Choose Between the Following Activities:

Kayak, Orangutans, & Longhouse Discovery (9 hours):

This adventure will start with a visit to the wonderful Semenggoh Orangutan Sanctuary as feeding time approaches. Enclosed in a large area of lush rainforest, it is home to endangered orangutans who have been rescued from captivity and are now part of a successful rehabilitation program. In response to the calls of the resident park rangers during the scheduled feeding time, these amazing primates descend from the canopy to the lower branches of trees, near the feeding area and offer us the chance to see them at fairly close distance, which, for many, is the wildlife highlight of their Borneo trip.

After feeding time, we continue our journey to one of the few remaining Bidayuh tribe’s longhouses in Kuching, the Annah Rais Longhouse. The longhouses are home to over 80 families and boast a history of 200 years of existence. Explore this living Bidayuh village with your local guide and learn about the culture of the Dayaks who were once headhunters. Step into the sacred room of old human skulls that are still worshipped today, before visiting one of the local establishments for a sip of its famous rice wine, ‘tuak’.

After saying goodbye to the longhouse, we take another quick transfer to the start of the kayaking adventure. Float down an untouched stretch of the Sarawak River to discover hidden waterfalls, explore limestone formations, and take the opportunity to have a dip in the refreshing mountain water. At the halfway mark, drop by a Bidayuh tribe’s village to explore how the local people farm and fish. You can try to cross the village’s suspension bridge that the local community still uses for their everyday activities. Lunch is served here by the river.

After lunch, continue to paddle leisurely and enjoy the peace and tranquility of the rainforest. This serene and smooth flowing river is a great place for friends and family to compete in races and water fights! When water levels permit, stopover at a mini waterfall for swimming and river fish feeding before ending the kayaking tour at the Kampong Semadang.

Mountain Biking Gold Mine & Cave Discovery (Off-Road Jungle or On-Road Country Ride) – 7 hours:

Off-Road: 

Discover the off-road jungle trails of a historical gold mining town! Cycle through the rocky rainforest terrain leading to the oldest gold mines in Sarawak. 

Visit Kuching’s most famous caves, The Wind & Fairy Caves,  walk through the dark caverns where you can see the bats hanging from the ceiling of the cave as well as the searching for swiftlet bird nests on the cave walls! Then head off-road to discover some hidden gold mines whilst tackling some of the rocky trails leading us to our halfway point for refreshments and a visit to the impressive Fairy Caves. After the caves, it’s off-road again to experience the challenging up and downhill of the rainforest trails! We will then load up our bikes and head off to town for a well-deserved lunch.

On-Road:

Discover the joy of cycling through the beautiful Borneo countryside with a visit to a historical gold mining town and Kuching’s most famous caves. After a scenic 45 minutes car trip, ride off to our first stop Wind Caves to walk through the dark caverns where you can see the bats hanging from the ceiling of the cave as well as searching for swiftlet bird nests on the cave wall! Then head off on a gentle gravel road to discover hidden gold mines and visit the impressive Fairy Caves chambers. Next, ride to a mystical cave with a Buddha statue to pray for your future fortunes and destiny. After the caves we ride on a countryside road, surrounded by pretty farmhouses and plantations back to Bau Town! We will then load up our bikes and head off to town for a well-deserved lunch.

Mountain Biking, Jungle, and River Adventure (5-6 hours):

Experience this wild and thrilling ride in the Borneo jungle. A fantastic trail with 90% off-road single track. This trail takes you through a variety of exciting terrain including untouched tropical forest, winding ravines, natural bamboo garden, and challenging rooty downhills. Best of all, take on the challenge of many river crossings by riding across suspended bridges, or carrying your bike over bamboo and log bridges. Stop for a breather during the ride and open up your senses to the tropical jungle: listen for the call of tropical birds; observe the busy life of insects and small jungle animals; and discover the great variety of wild exotic plants such as pitcher plants, wild ginger, and wild tropical fruits.

After all the exertion through the jungle, take a cool dip in a gently flowing river for a well-deserved break, before heading for lunch at a century-old town to try out some exotic local food!

Stay overnight at The Marian Boutique Lodging House.

Day 3 – Best of Kuching: Heritage + Kampong Bike Tour:

After a relaxing cruise across the Sarawak River on a traditional ‘sampan’ boat, we will guide you through off-the-beaten-track routes of the rural Malay ‘kampong’ and wooden bridges lining the banks of the great Sarawak River.

Along the way, you can explore the vibrant and exotic open-air market of Kubah Ria. Witness the vibrant color of tropical fresh fruits and vegetables, shop for local handicrafts at non-tourist prices, and discover a whole range of jungle produce including unique wild ferns, exotic vegetables, and plants.
