Vietnam has always been a country where the bicycle rules – and now cycling is one of the best ways to see this incredibly varied and colourful nation. From rice fields that stack up the mountain sides in steep terraces, where water buffalo plough and Hmong children play, to the dense tropical atmosphere of the Mekong region – this cycle holiday will get you deep into hidden Vietnam.

This fully supported tour is designed to capture the very best that Vietnam has to offer. It combines great cycling on backroads, tracks and trails with a diverse cultural experience, and the chance to see many stunning landscapes.
The journey takes in the ancient cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, the lush plantations of the central highlands, as well as limestone mountains, ancient forests, jungles, terraced rice fields and villages where hill tribes live just as they have for thousands of years.
We travel through places where the pace of life is slow, unhurried and connected to the land and the seasons. Places where visitors like us are a curiosity to the locals, and where you can truly unwind, explore and get the best out of this remarkable corner of Asia.
