Highlights include a huge 3000m climb from Jiaoxi at sea-level to Lishan in the precipitous Central Mountain Range, one of the world’s longest and most spectacular descents down Taroko Gorge, some stunning coastal roads, mellow cruising through rice paddies and of course loads of fantastic Taiwanese food.
Average riding per day is 80km and 1000m climbing.

Fancy a real challenge? This 4 Day tour more than delivers as you’ll take on the longest road climb in the world – the Taiwan KOM. From sea level, you’ll ride up the incredible Taroko Gorge to the highest road in Taiwan, Wuling Pass, at 3280m. The 4000m of climbing and over 80km in the saddle make this spectacular ride one of the most gruelling in the world.
But what goes up must come down! So having completed the world-famous climb, the following day you’ll descend 170km down the beautiful Lanyang River valley, before rolling back into Taipei via a spectacular hidden route through lush forests on the final day.
Average riding per day: 130km and 2000m climbing.
Dates: 10.04.18 – 14.04.18

This 4 day tour takes in the incredible scenery and sites of northeastern Taiwan. Shorter climbs and distances than our KOM Tour make this an easier ride, however there are still a few hills to conquer and 230km of tarmac to cover!
You won’t just be in the saddle however, and over the four days you’ll explore the likes of Shifen Waterfall, Jiufen Old Town, Fulong Beach, Sandiaojiao Lighthouse and Jiaoxi Hot Springs to name but a few. Add in a big helping of Taiwan’s world famous food and this trip is a great way to get a taste of Taiwan in a few short days.
Average riding per day: 60km, 800m climbing
Recommended Dates: February – May / September – November
