The Danum Valley Opulence Bike Ride
Imagine adventure in the tropical rainforest. This is your chance to breakaway from the city life and be pampered by mother nature at Danum Valley. Engage in cycling and trekking activities to the depth of the jungle, look out for the Borneoan wildlife, insects and birds.
However, unlike the hardcore and basic amenities one gets to experience in the first Survivor reality game show (that took place in Borneo), you will enjoy 2 nights stay at the luxurious Borneo Rainforest Lodge set in the virgin rainforest, cycling ride down Mount Silam and to Taliwas Riverside, luxurious local lunch by the river, and jungle experts guiding you through the rainforest.
The Danum Valley Opulence is the perfect adventure meets luxury that you do not want to miss!!!
