12 Days Yoga and Cycling Retreat in Cambodia

  • Siem Rep-Angkor-Tonle Sap-Sambor Prei Kuk, Cambodia


Yoga and Cycling Getaway in Cambodia

SoulFit adventures is taking you to a very special yoga retreat and cycling holiday to Cambodia. Exploring the temples, jungles, and countryside of enchanting Cambodia on two wheels, while practicing yoga in the mornings and evenings in the beautiful surrounds of tastefully designed guesthouses and eco-resorts. What a way to experience Cambodia! Starting from the spiritual and historical heart of the country, the ancient Angkor city, we take in a great variety of landscapes as we pedal through the friendly, engaging communities that line the secondary roads and back trails of this intriguing country. You might come to see Angkor Wat, but you will leave with a much wider appreciation of all that is Cambodia and just maybe, find a little bit more of yourself along the way!

Day 1 - Arrival day in Siem Reap

As you exit the airport our driver will be waiting for you with a beaming smile. After a short drive to the hotel, you will have some time to relax before the group meeting at 5pm. Your SoulFit adventures host and local tour leader will conduct a briefing at this time, after which you can try out your bike for size and add any items you may have brought. After this an authentic culinary journey awaits to introduce you to Cambodia.

Day 2 - Cycle the Angkor sunrise discovery 30 kilometers

As first light dawns and the roosters begin to crow you will be at the most important religious monument in the country, looking at the triple towers of Angkor Wat across a reflecting pool. After the sun hopefully rises as a giant orange ball behind the towers, the crowds will thin out as most people return to bed or a hotel breakfast. For us however, we will make use of the cool temperatures and soft morning light to explore Angkor Wat. Monkeys and a handful of other travelers are the only others you will see. We move onto a clearing in the forest by the river and have a short yoga session before breakfast. We then continue to explore the iconic Angkor temples and some hidden treasures of the Angkor area. We ride some lovely back trails and even ride atop the wall of Angkor Thom, overlooking the moat. Lunch is had by a small lake before we cycle back to our hotel. A restorative yoga session will be available in the late afternoon/early evening. Dinner is had at our lovely hotel this evening after a full day of activity.

Day 3 - Cycle Tonle Sape 45 kilometers

A morning yoga class to start the day, then, breakfast at the hotel before we start the ride. The Tonle Sap Lake is the largest in South East Asia and is not even closely rivaled in this position by anything else. A huge expanse of water in the middle of Cambodia, connected to the Mekong River by the Tonle Sap, resulting in a natural phenomenon that must be seen to be believed. We take a ride on tracks and trails today to reach the lake. Along the way we ride next to the Baray, a huge reservoir used by the Khmer kings for irrigation of the surrounding area. Upon arriving at the edge of the Tonle Sap, we take a boat to explore the floating communities that call this area home. These are a less visited collection of villages due to their relative remoteness. We extend our boat ride (time permitting) to see the birdlife of this area before returning to our bikes and to town by a different route. An evening yoga session will help to restore the balance. After this, you are at liberty to choose your dining venue from among a wide range of options.

Day 4 - Transfer Siem Reap to Kampong Thom, cycle Sambor Prei Kuk 55 kilometers

A morning yoga session will set us up for a full day. We start out from Siem Reap with a two and a half hour drive to reach Kampong Thom. This is the neighboring province to Siem Reap. After a bike fitting, we set off on a ride north of the town to find the sprawling complex of pre-Angkorian temples known as Sambor Prei Kuk. These ruins date back as far as the 7th century and are remarkably intact for their age. The leafy surrounds and absence of tourists makes this a really special experience. After we see out the heat of the day in the shade, we return to Kampong Thom by a different route and enjoy a tasty, authentic meal.

Day 5 - Transfer & cycle to Phnom Pehn 45 kilometers

Again a drive is necessary to set us up for a great ride, so before we fold ourselves into a vehicle, we have a yoga session by the pool of our guesthouse. It is then a drive of about three hours, after which we find ourselves at Oudong Mountain. Surprisingly, for a short period of time the capital of Cambodia. Today it is a hilltop temple with views over the surrounding flatlands. We enjoy a Cambodian style picnic here and then take an afternoon ride on lovely village roads and trails, mostly unpaved. We zigzag our way through farmland where rice is the main product and we pass Oudong's smaller brother, Basset Mountain. As the ride bears on, we cross the train tracks of the recently refurbished, but as yet un-operational railway line. From here the scenery changes rapidly and for those comfortable riding in traffic you can ride right up to the hotel door. For those that are not game, the support vehicle awaits. Dinner tonight marks the end of the first third of our epic journey and will be had by the Tonle Sap River, not far from where the three main rivers of Cambodia converge which was the main reason for Phnom Penh's placement.

Day 6 - Rest day in Phnom Penh

A morning yoga session is planned before you get out to explore. Phnom Penh has had a turbulent history. When the French colonialists arrived, it was little more than a collection of wooden shacks by the river, but they soon changed that and in doing so created what was once considered a very beautiful city. When the Khmer Rouge evacuated the city in 1975, they started it on its way to decay and decline, a theme that had carried through until only fairly recently when the countrys economic development accelerated rapidly. Your guide can dispense a great deal of advice on how the city can be explored and will offer a late afternoon walk to introduce you to some of the lesser known aspects of this eccentric city. An optional restorative yoga session will be available in the evening.

Day 7 - Transfer and cycling to Kirirom 85 kilometers

After a drive to exit the traffic of Phnom Penh, we hit the bikes and find ourselves in picturesque countryside again where water buffalo wallow in mud while kids tend to them and coconut and palm trees line the roads. Our cycling route today is on well made dirt roads with hardly a car in sight. We stop off mid way at a small community near a waterfall where we have lunch. We then continue on to Kirirom Mountain. Those not wanting to do the climb can use the vehicle to shuttle to the top of the hill where our guest house awaits. This is a recently constructed property in the cool air and pine tree surrounds. This is a lovely location for an evening yoga session before another healthy and delicious meal.

Day 8 - Cycle and transfer to Sihanoukville 65 kilometers

A yoga and meditation session to start the day, a hearty breakfast and then a descent down a winding road back to the flatlands. We then shuttle a highway section by car until we find another one of those back roads that we've enjoyed so much. Our back road today includes rolling hills, something new for us to experience. We pop out at the coast about two thirds of the way in at a deserted beach. A chance for a dip before we push on through the port area of Sihanoukville and all the way to our secluded guest house up on a hill. Our evening yoga session will be by the pool overlooking the port.

Day 9 - Cycle to Kampot 100 kilometers

A challenging day of riding today as we follow the coast around, past the base of Bokor Mountain to reach Kampot. The riding takes us on a variety of terrain, along sandy beaches, through forest trails and on more open roads as we pass the mountains. Kampot is a pleasant little town in the shadow of Bokor, set on an inlet.nicely restored, colonial era building is our home for the night. A restorative yoga session is sure to help with the recovery after a long day on the bike.

Day 10 - Cycle to Kep 35 kilometers

A short day on the bike allows for a morning yoga session. After a long day in the saddle yesterday, it is nice to have a lazy start today and a much shorter ride. We ride out east from town and spend a short while on a main road before leaving it to ride a small back road around a lake that was dug by labor during the Khmer Rouge times. We have a slight hill today as we pass some pepper farms. We then descend back down to the coast before one final hill to reach our lovely accommodation with views out over the Gulf Of Thailand. An evening yoga session overlooking the Gulf Of Thailand is a lovely memory to have of Kep.

Day 11 - Free day in Kep

Even though this is a free day, a location like this deserves a yoga session. We'll have this before breakfast and the rest of the day is then yours to explore Kep. The bikes are at your disposal and Kep is a compact enough size that you can cover most of it on two wheels.

Day 12 - Transfer to Phnom Penh

You bid Kep farewell and take a drive of three hours to reach Phnom Penh. You can take you straight to the airport or to a hotel in town. The tour concludes upon arrival.

    "Virginia has created such an amazing experience with her Bali rest and restore yoga retreat. I can’t thank you enough Virginia. I was struck with the tranquility and beauty of the venue the moment I arrived. Greeted by the warm, ever smiling Balinese staff, the scene was very much set for a pretty special time. Set among lush gardens with authentic Balinese bungalows nestled among palm and coconut trees with the ocean lapping almost at your door – it’s just gorgeous. The yoga space is incredible, the food healthy and tasty, the staff divine. The yoga is both challenging and meditative but achievable for all levels. Virginia looks after you. Did I mention the sunrise and sunsets and the view from the yoga shala! For me, a beautiful week of good company, laughter, contentment and reflection. If you are considering it, don’t hesitate, it is truly a week you will cherish."

    "What a superb and amazing week! From the moment we were met in Lucca by the charismatic Ricardo and meeting our fellow retreat goers, to then arriving at the idyllic and magical Villa Boccella and greeted by lovely host, Virginia, the scene was truly set for a great experience. Virginia’s expert yoga instruction and warm and welcoming environment provided a really enjoyable, as well as challenging and rewarding experience catering to experienced yoga goers like my wife, as well as a complete novice like myself! (I am now a convert - thanks Virginia!"

    "The itinerary for the week was a perfect mix of yoga, cycling, and free time to explore the delights of Lucca and surrounding area. We absolutely loved the escorted cycling excursion days with stunning scenery, great routes, and lovely refreshment stops. The accommodation was truly fabulous and the home cooked food was a five-star delicious! What also made the week was that we were lucky enough to share our experience with a great bunch of people who quickly became friends from day one."

    "This holiday exceeded all our expectations and we would like to sincerely thank Virginia for making it happen and giving us so many great and lovely memories of our week of yoga and cycling in Tuscany with Soulfit Adventures! Grazie per la felicità di amore e di amicizia."

    "The yoga retreat that I attended, organized by Soulfit Adventures, was an extraordinary experience. Having stayed at the glorious Jeda Villa in Petumeran, Bali, I felt a sense of euphoria as well tranquility. The yoga sessions instructed by Virginia Slevin were challenging yet comforting; I looked forward every day to my yoga practice. In addition to the yoga, the retreat included a day of trekking through one of Balis national parks as well as an amazing snorkeling excursion where I was able to see sea life that I have only previously seen at an aquarium. Additionally, the meals provided were prepared by a wonderful chef and were healthy and delicious. I left the retreat feeling peaceful and at a better place in mind, body and spirit. I am very much looking forward to another retreat organized by Soulfit Adventures. The experience was surreal, and one that I will always remember."

    "Oh Soulfit Adventures how can I thank thee??? What an amazing 8 days I have just spent in Bali on a yoga retreat! Virginia is awesome and just had everything covered from our collection and transfers from the airport, to our gorgeous rooms and time at our magical venue, to the fun outings organized. It was a beautiful time being away from the usual distractions of home life, in Bali we were able to immerse ourselves in yoga, build friendships and find tranquil space for our minds beside the ocean, not to mention the incredible fun we had snorkeling, hiking and shopping and sharing together."

    "The yoga was challenging, but very rewarding and the Yin yoga each evening a real treasure. The venue was perfect with the most gorgeous vibe of love and relaxation, the food oh so delicious and plentiful. We had the choice to do as little or as much as we liked. As well as the yoga we were offered day trips out snorkeling, we went on an amazing hike through the traditional rice paddies which was just glorious; we had a shopping expedition to Ubud not to mention the included massages and reflexology treatments. All in all an amazing experience."

    "Not only were the yoga and organized activities amazing, but the like-minded people sharing it with me were exceptional and great friendships formed. For me a truly magical holiday! If you are looking to get away, advance your yoga, just begin yoga, relax, meet amazing people, have delicious food in an environment that is simply stunning, with nothing at all you have to think about or organize for yourself, this is the trip for you! Take your next adventure with Soulfit Adventures, you wont be disappointed!"

    "We truly enjoyed our bike and yoga adventure to Lucca and the surrounding areas. The bikes were great and Paladino's bike shop Chronos had top notch equipment and service. The accommodations were spectacular and the local gelato was the perfect end to the cycling each day. Tim was a great guide but no way could you draft behind him!! We'll always remember and hope to try one of your other destinations soon."

Lastly, I must say to you that I thought you did a fantastic job, I loved every day, and I loved meeting all those amazing human beings (you included). I was quite aware that I was the oldest person in the group and that I am in a completely different chapter in my life than everyone else but thank God, it really didnt matter. Another highlight was the massage by Isa; I doubt Ill ever have another as good."

    "Northern Laos is a great travel destination, and this itinerary is a perfect way to experience it. I especially enjoyed the opportunity for local, quiet and remote experiences and being able to come home to excellent accommodation and cuisine. The trip included rest days at two small and delightful resorts which were a real treat. Although Northern Laos is hilly (and very scenic), our cycle routes were mostly along rivers and valleys and hence were quite manageable. The two days long-boating on rivers were a highlight. Cycling is in my Australian life, but yoga is not. However, I found that the daily morning sessions were a great thing to do, and the teacher was good at handling the variety of experience levels in the class. If you regularly do cycling, or yoga, or neither, this trip could be just the thing for you."

    "This has been a truly wonderful week with you on your SoulFit Yoga & Cycling Retreat. I have been humbled by the opportunity and experience of working with you over the past week. You are a compassionate leader with a great sense of humor who always kept the group together and happy. I have learned so much from teaching yoga with the group this week , for example, watching Andy's progression and Brigitte's confidence grow through the week makes me feel that this thing that we do - breathing, moving, sweating - all together in a room is one of the best things that we can do for ourselves. It's a universal benefit for all those who are willing to do the work. And because of you, we had the opportunity to come together and make this happen! You have a beautiful practice Virginia. Enjoy your own journey learning on and off the mat. I am sure we will see each other again."
