Kiulu Cycling & Rafting Day Trip ~ Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Borneo

A wet and wild day out for the energetic! This mornings rafting is a fun-filled ride down the picturesque Kiulu River through jungle-clad valleys and past villages and farms with enough white water to get you excited but not enough to scare you. After the rafting you will enjoy a tasty barbeque lunch and change into your riding clothes before a 15-minute transfer to the start of the mountain biking. After a short briefing and bike fitting, you we will head out for one of the most beautiful rides in rural Sabah. We cycle through small riverside villages which are home to the Dusun tribal people as well as jungle, plantations and the Dusun people’s farms. The hills are thankfully few, far apart and short on the main route but if you are feeling like stretching your legs a little our guides can take you off to explore some more adventurous trails with single-track and technical descents.

A support vehicle is nearby at all times should a problem occur.
