If you love independent travel in China, then grab a bike, jump in a van, and head to the Beijing countryside with this independent tour. Cycle along a special route that will take you through the pristine countryside to the Great Wall and historic Ming Tombs, with a special overnight stay in a Country Guest House.
On the first day of your adventure, we’ll pick you up in a van and take you out to the beautiful countryside to the north of Beijing. Once we arrive, you’ll be given a bike, helmet and detailed map, and sent on your way!
You’ll head east along a paved road as the Great Wall sits patiently on the horizon. Later you will cycle along the unrestored section of the Great Wall called Yellow Flower Great Wall. After a rustic country lunch you’ll hike along the scenic wall, and head down a secret back path that will lead you to the country guest house we’ve reserved for you.
The following day, you’ll cycle to the Changling section of the Ming Tombs, which were built back in 1413. Once you’re done exploring, the bus will be there to pick you up and take you back to Beijing.
