Vibrant Vietnam Cycling Tour
Event Details Section

Vietnam is distinct from other Asian countries. It has its own ancient culture, language, alphabet and its own instantly appealing style. Travelling in Vietnam is a new experience and visiting the country by bike is unusual and exciting.

Riding a mountain bike along "Highway One" is, without a doubt, the only way to experience the quintessential Vietnam. The many years of contact and conflict with China, France and America have left an impression on the Vietnamese people, the architecture and the social culture. You will be in awe of the country's beauty and ancient civilizations.alt

Along our route you will come in to contact with the real Vietnam - an experience you will find hard to forget. This trip is designed for those who are fit, energetic and enjoy cycling. You are supplied with a mountain bike as we travel from Saigon, via the Central Highlands and the stunning coastline. Then, on to Hanoi, visiting the fascinating attractions of this beautiful country.

This is neither an endurance test nor a marathon survival race from one point to another, and we do not ride on the busy, major highways. We ride, instead, on the back roads and are supported by a back-up vehicle. This way, you can experience the best that Vietnam has to offer!

Day 1
We meet at Bong Sen 2 Hotel, Ho Chi Minh City. We spend the day un-boxing and testing bikes and give you some time to explore the city. In the evening we dine at the enchanting Temple Club Restaurant. (D)

Day 2
Today we ride to the famous Cu Chi tunnels, where the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) lived and tormented their foreign enemies for decades. We return to Ho Chi Minh City by bus to visit the macabre museum of war crimes. Dinner is your choice. 40 km. (B, L)

Day 3
We get up early to drive to Dalat in the central highlands. Dalat was a favoured retreat for the French, especially during the hot summers. It was once known as Le Petit Paris and is now a popular honeymoon destination for the Vietnamese. We arrive in time for lunch while our staff set the bikes up. In the afternoon we ride quiet back roads past flower farms and vegetable gardens, through smaller villages and past picturesque churches , up cobbled streets and past old colonial buildings. We stay in a beautifully converted French colonial Villa. 50 km. (B, L, D)alt

Day 4
Setting off on our bikes from the hotel we ride along quiet roads out of Dalat. The ride boasts some stiff but short climbs followed by some outstanding descents to take us back down to sea level. There are some fantastic views and beautiful mountain scenery before we reach the Cham towers of Po Klong Garai. We then drive to Na Trang, the resort town where we can enjoy a more lively evening. Up to 109km. (B, L, D)

Day 5
Taking a rest from the bikes we offer a boat trip to the coral islands for swimming and snorkeling. If you don’t feel like a boat trip, relax and enjoy the beach, or go scuba diving. (B)

Day 6
An early start takes us on a wonderfully scenic ride to the beautiful fishing village of Dai Lanh. We are riding on Highway One today and there will be some traffic on one side contrasting with the best of rural Vietnam on the other. We will have lunch on the beach. Most people will spend the rest of the day swimming and relaxing but serious cyclists might want to ride the last 45 km into town. 85 km. (B, L, D)

Day 7
Again we transfer out of town to avoid the main highway. We start riding along a remote but well surfaced road running alongside the railway. The terrain is gently rolling, with beautiful views of the foothills of the highlands. We pass a mix of tribal and Viet villages. Ubiquitous potbellied pigs and bare foot children trot across your trail. 62 km. (B, L, D)

Day 8
In the morning we ride 12 kilometres to My Lai, the site of one of the worst massacres of the Americanalt/Vietnam War. After a guided tour of the site and museum, we continue cycling out into the Vietnamese countryside. The rest of the ride is through quiet, rural villages before eventually looping back to the main road. We transfer the rest of the way to Hoi An, having lunch on the way. The afternoon is free to explore Hoi An. 46 km. (B, L, D)

Day 9
Staying another night in Hoi An, and after a short transfer to avoid busy road, we ride to visit My Son, the ancient centre of Cham civilization. The ride is worth the effort in itself and is arguably one of the best of the trip. We cycle along scenic country back roads past paddy fields and through eucalyptus forest passing many pretty villages. The road climbs away from the coast offering stunning views. We ride and as the road cuts a gorge through the lush jungle alongside the Song Tranh River. Eventually we arrive at My Son, which was once Champa’s greatest city. In the afternoon we transfer by bus back to Hoi An. Dinner is your choice. 54-km. (B, L)

Day 10
This is probably the toughest ride of the tour, but is also one of the best. We transfer beyond Danang to take on the High Van Pass. Climbing 500 metres above sea level, we enjoy stunning views of the South China Sea. The afternoon downhill is a just reward. After lunch we take a coastal side road for 44 km most of the way to our destination. Energetic riders can ride all the way into Hue, the old capital of the Ngu Yen Dynasty. Up to 100 km. (B, L, D)

Day 11
We take another day off to explore the city. The main sight is the citadel. Huge walls contain the Forbidden Purple City, where only emperors, eunuchs and concubines were allowed to enter. Another wonderful side trip is the boat ride along the Perfume River to visit the elaborate tombs of the Nguyen emperors. (B. L D)

Day 12
Ride through karst scenery on Ninh Binh to Cuc Phoang National Park. (B,L,D)

Day 13
Ride some of the backroads to Haiphong. (B, L, D)

Day 14
First thing in the morning we take the whole day to explore the Cat Ba island and overnight in this paradise.. (B, L, D)alt

Day 15
We spend the day on a boat cruising through Halong Bay. The limestone karst mountains rise dramatically out of the emerald sea. Halong bay is one of the most incredible natural wonders of the world. Legend has it that it was formed by a great dragon who descended from the mountain into the sea. We then transfer back to Hanoi. (B, L)

Day 16
We have the whole day free to explore. Ho Chi Minh’s mausoleum is the ‘must see’ sight in Hanoi. But the real attraction lies in the beautiful architecture and relaxed atmosphere. The city center is folded around Haan Kiem Lake and our hotel is a short stroll from everything. Our fare well dinner is at one of Hanoi’s best restaurants. Vietnamese cuisine. (B, D)

Day 17
The morning is free for last minute shopping or sightseeing. In the afternoon we will arrange airport transfers for anyone who needs them, or extend your stay in Vietnam! (B)
