Some of the highlights of Vietnam are the stunning and diverse geography of towering mountains, picturesque coastline and endless green rice fields, the delicious cuisine, the friendliness of the people, and the intrigue at such a long culture of independence and national pride.
Our bike trip showcases the best of all these aspects of the country. We take a classic cycling route between the commercial hub of Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) and the capital of Hanoi. We then add the trademark Grasshopper touch to it by cycling on the most charming back road and trails experiencing the real countryside.
Our newest addition to the itinerary includes a ride near Phong Nha, made famous by the recent discovery of massive cave systems. There's even a day of cave exploration for outdoor adventurers.
With minimal driving and maximum cycling, this is a truly unique bike trip. We spent months mapping out the best route so that you can take just two weeks to see the full range of this amazing country.
With many kilometers of stunning beaches and dramatic coastal roads, as well as some of the freshest seafood going, this trip is an indulgent experience. We are never far from a beach and stay in comfortable hotels to make this trip one of our most luxurious adventure tours.
Pedal-assist E-bikes are an available option on this tour for $315.
525 Km riding. Apart from a couple of days on this tour that are just a touch short of 100km and a rather large hill (Hai Van Pass) the riding is achievable for anyone who rides regularly as a commuter or recreationally on the weekends. Most of the roads are paved back roads with minimal traffic. We encounter only a couple of dirt roads and these are not hard riding at all. There are often sea breezes to keep the temperature down a little. Hai Van Pass is a sustained climb of 10km with a lovely descent of the same length immediately after. The gradient is not steep, and once you find a rhythm, it is actually an enjoyable ride with some great views. There are a few other small hills, but we always return to sea level, so the up is a nice trade-off for the down.
Make the most of a free day in Hoi An to cycle the town and countryside or explore this UNESCO World Heritage historical town.
Pedal to the Hai Van Pass for stunning views and satisfying cycling.
Visit the highlights of the fascinating Hue, cycling to old tombs and a citadel before a boat ride back to town.
Cycle the UNESCO World Heritage Phong Nha national park, then spend a day trekking and exploring the caves.
