Due North

Ha Noi - Yen Bai - Ha Giang - Yen Minh - Dong Van - Du Gia - Ba Be - Bac Kan - Hanoi

This is a tour that offers the best Vietnam has to offer in terms of motorbiking, scenery and ethnic culture. Ha Giang is known for being the ‘top’ province in Vietnam and we spend a good deal of time up there. We get to visit some fabulous historic sites, see some stunning views and hang out in some very chilled spots. All whilst experiencing a vastly different culture to our own.

This tour takes us halfway down the country and past some of the most interesting Vietnam War sites as well as through some of the pristine jungle that is left on the old Ho Chi Minh Trail. This is a great tour for anyone who is interested in military history and also for those who are up for some fun in the caves of Phong Nha. We can spend time in historical Hue and then the majestic Hai Van Pass or opt for more jungle riding by way of P’Rao in the highlands.

Cloud Hunter

Ha Noi - Pu Luong - Mai Chau - Ta Xua - Tram Tau - Mu Cang Chai - Than Uyen - Sa Pa - Ban Ho - Ha Noi

The main aim of this tour is to get from Hanoi to Sa Pa. Along the way we take in some of the most scenic routes in northern Vietnam. We call it Cloud Hunter due to the number of times you will find yourself above cloudbase looking at a blanket of white clouds below you. We pass through several nature reserves and more isolated areas where you will only see local people. The riding is not easy but it is fun and helps work up a good thirst 🙂

Lake Loop

Ha Noi - Xuan Son - Thac Ba - Ba Be x2 - Ban Gioc x2 - That Khe - Bac Son - Ha Noi

Visit the national parks and the lakes in the northern region. We have a couple of free days that allow us to see the sights in a couple of places so this trip is not all riding. On these free days, we can arrange riding or other activities such as boating, visiting some sights/caves and it can be a welcome rest for any sore spots. A lot of history and interesting places are seen on this tour so it’s one for those who like to learn a lot.
