Luxury lodge and a charming resort
This tour takes you on a journey along scenic canal paths and orchard trails, in ferries that only fit half a dozen people, and through the charming villages and towns of the Mekong Delta area to immerse you deep in the unique way of life here.
At each corner a picture-perfect scene awaits you, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to park your bike and take a few snapshots.
Vietnamese cuisine is delightful, and you’ll discover this is as much an eating tour as a biking tour. Each meal and snack stop is carefully selected to allow you to sample a wide variety of the Delta’s delicious foods.
At the end of each day, you will relax and experience two of the top-rated hotel properties in all of southern Vietnam. Plenty of adventure and cultural immersion is waiting for you, just a short distance south of Saigon.

115 Km riding. The riding is entirely flat. You’ll cycle on a great variety of surfaces, ranging from concrete to hard-packed dirt and even a few forest trails around Angkor. Traffic will almost always be a rarity, allowing you to engage with the locals as you go, stopping for a chat or a photo opp as you wish.
Pedal-assist E-bikes are an available option on this tour for $105.
Stay in two luxurious accommodations with beautiful interiors and tranquil settings.
Cycle through bright green rice fields, fruit and vegetable farms, small villages, local markets and ornate pagodas.
Savor a flavorful, home-cooked Vietnamese meal in a private residence.
Explore the Can Tho floating markets at a time when only locals are bustling around.
Our Grasshopper team will arrange a central meeting point in town or come pick you up at your hotel. From Saigon, it’s an 90-minute transfer by private van to the northern edge of the Delta.
To start our ride, the bikes are set up just down the road from a village market where locals will welcome you as neighbors. We mount our bikes and set off on small rural roads and concrete canal paths this morning, visiting some of the artisans, weavers and growers who call this region home for an interesting cultural immersion.
The sights along the trails include stunning vistas of rice fields, lush vegetable and fruit farms, temples, pagodas, and countless local markets. There’s a well-timed stop for cold drinks and fresh fruit and just before lunch a visit to the largest wholesale produce market in southern Vietnam.
We’re in for a treat, as lunch today is served in a private home with a meal specially prepared for our group. From here it’s a short boat ride across the Mekong to your luxurious home for the evening. You can relax by the pool, enjoy the spa services of the hotel, or simply spend a quiet afternoon with a book by the banks of the river.
This evening you are free to dine as you wish, the resort itself has a great menu of traditional Vietnamese or French dishes.
Breakfast at the Island Lodge is enjoyed in the outdoor dining area overlooking the river. Meanwhile, the bikes are made ready for our second day of cycling and exploring deeper into the Delta.
We will cross by boat or van to just outside of Ben Tre. Our ride today continues along narrow canal paths, crossing streams and larger rivers by ferries, and includes a stop at a traditional brick factory.
Lunch today near Cho Lach is once again specially prepared in a private residence. There’s time for a short pedal after lunch before we hop in the van to transfer to Can Tho and our next night of luxury at the Victoria Can Tho Resort. Enjoy a dip in the pool or relax riverside.
Dinner tonight is at a favorite local restaurant in Can Tho.
This morning we are up early in order to experience Can Tho’s floating markets with the locals, not the tourists. A short drive by private van from the Victoria Resort gets us to a boat dock where we’ll head into the main market area for an up-close experience of this unique Delta tradition.
Returning to the hotel by 7:30 am, there’s plenty of time to enjoy the sumptuous breakfast at the resort. By 9 am the bikes will be ready for us in front of the hotel. We’ll pedal off to the nearby ferry that crosses the Mekong for our last day of cycling and Delta adventures. This region features many sites constructed during Khmer rule of the Delta and today nearly 1.5 million people of Cambodian descent still call this area home. We’ll pedal the lush Delta area and explore some of these sites before a late lunch. Once we’ve eaten, it’s time to board the van for our transfer back to Saigon, arriving at approximately 5 pm.
Quality, well maintained GT mountain bikes in a full range of sizes are included in your tour, fitted with full hydraulic brakes, hybrid tires for touring. Handlebar bags for your personal possessions and comfortable saddles are also provided, with a women- specific version available.
Simple to use and a pleasure to ride the Trek Conduit+ pedal-assist bike expands touring possibilities for all riders, and anything that enables people to explore more of the world by bike is a great thing in our books! Find out more about our E-Bikes here.
Always striving to deliver a premium tour experience Grasshopper Adventures are the first (and currently only) to offer pedal-assist e-bikes as a tour option in Southeast Asia.

Both nights on tour are spent in supremely comfortable hotels, which are amongst the best on offer in the Mekong Delta. With only 12 rooms, The Island Lodge offers unequaled luxury accommodations, blending privacy and tranquility in a charming Indochine-themed setting. Luxury and an unforgettable experience await you at the Victoria Can Tho Resort, with colonial-style architecture and the natural beauty of the Delta in a setting along the Song Hau river.
An experienced English speaking, local leader will host you on this trip who is well spoken, very knowledgeable and charming. For tours of 7+ people, an assistant guide will accompany the group to allow for flexibility and ensure attention to service & detail.
Our leaders are often cited as being the main highlight of the tour. We use local guides who have a passion for their country and are always well informed on topics ranging from history, politics, cuisine and importantly local customs and cultures. Our leaders will take pride in introducing you to every aspect of their country and will help you to connect with the villagers you meet along the way as well as look out for your safety and comfort at all times.
An air-conditioned backup support vehicle is always available for tired riders and to carry your luggage. In the Mekong Delta, we are on narrow bike and pedestrian style paths and trails where the support vehicle cannot follow. It will, however, meet us at intervals of 10km or so and can meet us at closer intervals if there is an urgent need.
The international profile of Vietnamese food has increased over the last two decades with very good reason. A cuisine that has evolved with the culture and landscape of Vietnam provides for an astounding level of variety from south to north. Each town and city has its own subtle twist on iconic dishes and some of their own creations. Our leaders are passionate about their food and look forward to taking you on a culinary adventure in unison with your cycling adventure. They are well prepared to accommodate any allergies and preferences. Included meals are listed in the day by day itinerary, and drinking water is always included with meals. Any soft or alcoholic drinks are not included and will be at your own expense.
Energy bars and local snacks are provided to keep your energy levels up for the riding, and clean water and electrolyte drinks are always available to keep you well hydrated.
A beautiful souvenir Grasshopper cycling jersey is yours to wear and take home. We also provide a Grasshopper drink bottle as an extra memento.

This resort close to the city of Can Tho, on the Hau River, provides a unique atmosphere. Spend some time in the riverside spa village, or take a dip in the pool with views of an exotic garden. Classy architecture and spacious, stylish rooms will make for an excellent stay.
We were looking to get away from the tourist destinations and see what Vietnam is really like. The three-day Mekong tour was perfect -- we loved riding through villages where the people called out "hello" as we passed.
The Mekong Delta In Style 3 day cycle tour was the absolute high point of our Vietnam holiday. We saw the real Vietnam and we loved it. The ride was flat all the way so anyone could easily manage this.
We had a fantastic trip. We saw so much in three days and really got to see a little bit about what life in the delta is like. Thank you Bao and Mr Giang.
