Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Hanoi/ Sapa. Arrive/ meet in Hanoi, enjoy a day free for sightseeing. Take the train to the scenic hill-station of Sapa, a village built by the French in a valley almost exclusively inhabited by tribal Montagnards.

Days 2-3: Arrive in Lao Cai and transfer to Sapa. Afternoon ride in the Supan valley close to Sapa. The stunning Lai Chao and Fansipan valleys are as remote as they are beautiful. Colorful Hmong, Tsao and other tribal people live in a land that has still not yet been touched by the modern world and we constantly ride through just incredible scenery!

Day 4: Ride over Tram Ton Pass and off road to Pa So.

Day 5: Stunning scenery and remote valleys to Lai Chau.

Day 6: Outstanding ride over many hills and through rarely visited villages to Dien Bien Phu, the site of the Viet Minh's historic and decisive victory over the French. After visiting the battlefields and learning how Ho Chi Minh and his indefatigable people defeated the colonial French we fly back to Hanoi.

Day 7: Hanoi. Fly to Hanoi for your departure.
