Dirt Bike Adventures in Romania

Our Romania Dirt Bike Long Weekender is an ultra-concentrated adventure designed to push your riding skills to the limits. We spend 3 full days riding on steep narrow trails through endless forests in the Carpathian Mountains in Central Romania. This region is a Mecca for off-road motorcycling and it really doesn’t get much better than this!

Although this is the shortest trip we offer, by no means is it an ‘easy’ adventure. This is a tough, physically demanding and challenging experience which will take you right out of your comfort zone.

Our Big Thailand Adventure

The Golden Triangle region of northern Thailand is dirt bike paradise and riders can expect rocky climbs, jungle trails and river crossings, plus of course stunning mountain views, spectacular waterfalls, ancient temples and a unique opportunity to ride through remote hill tribe villages.

We ran a recce trip to Thailand in 2014, and in October 2015 Steve led our first official Thailand Dirt Bike Adventure. It was a fantastic trip, and for one rider in particular it was a definitely a ‘Big Adventure’ as he’d never done anything like this before.

Here is the 3rd and final instalment of Matt Hogg's brilliant blog about his trip to Nepal in September 2015.

Our Big Nepal Adventure by Matt Hogg - Part 2

Here is Part 2 of Matt Hogg's fantastic blog which he wrote whilst leading our Nepal Dirt Bike Adventure in September 2015.

In this post you can read about their adventures from Pokhara to Beni and then Tatopani, then up to the dry barren alpine of Jomsom and onwards to the Muktinath Temple which sits at about 3800m above sea level. Our favourite part of this post is Matt's opening line on Day 7 where he says 'If this trip were a meal, ride day seven would be the main course. The Christmas Turkey. And we carved it like starved beggars on 250cc dirt bikes!'. Brilliant.

Mini Big Adventures in Romania

When setting up The Big Adventure Company in 2014 we felt there was a need for shorter trips in a European country. All our other trips are long haul and we understand that people can’t take always go away for 2 weeks due to work commitments, family holidays, etc. We’d heard amazing things about Romania and we were certain that this would be the perfect country for our mini Big Adventures.

Our Big Cambodian Adventure

In early 2015 Neil Petersen and his friend Neil Whitehead travelled to Southeast Asia where they had the opportunity to leave their ‘real world’ for a few weeks and enjoy their true passions in life - taking photographs and riding motorcycles. Their trip started with a flight to Bangkok and then a short flight to Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. From Chiang Mai they travelled into and through Laos and then into Cambodia.

We were delighted that they chose to join us on our Cambodia Dirt Bike Adventure where we explored the jungles and ancient temples of this fascinating country.

Here is Neil Petersen’s fantastic blog about their big Cambodian adventure and you can read more about their southeast Asia trip on his website – www.dotpix.co.uk
