Tambunan Quad Biking & Authentic Village

We have hand crafted this quad biking and authentic village tour to get your adrenaline going and to show off the beauty, culture and food in the beautiful, but less visited district of Sabah known as Tambunan.

Tambunan is known as the rice bowl of Sabah for its fertile soil and excellent rice production. Get out on the quad bikes and check out the natural rivers, rice paddies and friendly villagers in this stunning destination.  

A day out on the quad bikes will provide you with views of mountains, rivers, and rice paddies while providing a village experience that is historical and authentically awesome. Combine that with some home cooked local cuisine and hospitality and we think you will have a day well spent on our Tambunan Quad Biking & Authentic Village tour.

About the Tour:

The quad biking day starts with the ride up to Tambunan.  It’s a scenic drive through a winding mountain road. Once you arrive, our guide will teach you how to operate the quad bikes and then you will be on your way on the 12km loop with plenty of views to get that instagram worthy photo you’ve been searching for!  

The day is capped off by wandering around historic Tambunan and learning about the rich history, traditional architecture, local rice wine, and of course, the food!

If you yearn for something unique, in a special location we can comfortably recommend the Tambunan Adventure Quad bike as a great day trip from Kota Kinabalu.

About Tambunan:

Tambunan is known in Sabah as one of the most beautiful places in the state. Tambunan is rarely visited by tourists which keeps that quaint rural feeling we love to introduce to our travelers.

The village is surrounded by rice paddies, most still grown with traditional methods.  Within the village, you will find that the villagers are very friendly and always welcoming with a smile and a wave.  

While there, you will get to try their delicious home-grown rice and even the chance to try their specially made rice wine.

This is a quad biking and village visit not to be missed!
