Ride the real deal in Vietnam. Satisfy your inner explorer with a ride through the most fascinating, often over-looked region of Vietnam's hinterlands. Far away from the sight-seeing trails of Saigon and the Mekong Delta, lies what we and many others acknowledge is the most authentic, exhilarating cycle route in Vietnam.

You'll have to pinch yourself to check you haven't ridden onto a film set when the spectacular panoramas come into view. Hidden within the breathtaking terraced mountains and green river valleys of this rarely traveled region, sits a rich tapestry of hill tribe people, ethnic minorities in traditional costumes and children herding buffalo along the roads.

The time you spend at the former French hill station of Sapa and the famous battleground of Dien Bien Phu provide welcome downtime to explore the areas' rich history and culture. The unfolding mountain scenery will blow your mind. As will the screaming downhills you get as a reward after you've climbed the winding mountain passes.
