Overview

Book
Most people have heard of Saigon, Hue and Danang and when they think of Vietnam think of shimmering rice fields, jungles and beaches, but much of this extraordinarily diverse country is made up of mountains. The Northwestern region is home to the most stunning mountain scenery in Vietnam, if not the whole of Southeast Asia.

This cycle-journey through Southeast Asia's most spectacular mountain range is for cyclists seeking a biking challenge, enjoy climbing and mixing it up with some off road trails. Starting in Hanoi, we take the train to the scenic hill station of Sapa and ride the amazing mountain trails around Fansipan, Indochina's highest peak, before riding over a 2-km high mountain pass, the first of many.

This tour goes to a part of Vietnam where few foreigners ever venture and you’ll be amazed at the colourful clothing of the many ethnic tribes as you ride through valleys and river gorges to Dien Bien Phu. Here, we’ll visit battlefields and learn how Ho Chi Minh defeated the colonial French, and then two long days of riding will be rewarded by a stay at a charming lodge before heading back to Hanoi.
