Itinerary

Visit Hanoi’s Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum complex and prepare for the upcoming adventure.
Farewell Hanoi and travel to Luong Son. Cycle out past spectacular karst cliffs and admire the lush Mai Chau valley en route to Cun Pass. Enjoy a homestay in a small village.
Ride into the ancient rainforests of Cuc Phuong National Park. Meet furry-faced monkeys at the Endangered Primate Rescue Centre before falling asleep to the sounds of the jungle.
Continue on to Ninh Binh, via ancient Hoa Lu. Settle in on an overnight train to Hue.
Hop back into the saddle and explore the magnificent tombs, temples, palaces and pagodas of this former imperial capital.
Conquer the Hai Van Pass and be rewarded with stunning coastal views. Continue working those legs cycling to Cua Dai Beach, join a boat tour on Thu Bon River or simply enjoy some rest in historic Hoi An.
Cycle the road less travelled all the way to the beautiful beach and bay of Quy Nhon.
Continue to the coastal haven of Nha Trang. Relax on a boat tour of the many nearby islands and, in free time, why not let a masseur soothe away sore muscles.
Tackle challenging mountain roads or choose to flag down the bus en route to Dalat. Visit the striking Cham Tower, Bao Dai’s Summer Palace and the Hang Nga Crazy House.
After a final two-wheeled stint, arrive in exciting Ho Chi Minh City and take a cyclo tour around some of the city’s famous attractions.
