Get off the beach and on-ya-bike for a 5-day adventure as we do a loop through mountains, jungles, PhongNha National Park, the ancient capital of Hue, and get the blood racing as we ride the winding roads of the famous Hai Van Pass. Our all-inclusive package is filled with plentiful stops for drinks, lunch sightseeing, and photo opportunities, making sure you never get too tired or too hungry!
We never ride after dark, so even with a jam-packed itinerary, we will have you back at your accommodation around 5 pm. Safe, sound and dreaming of your next adventure.
Danang / Hoi An to Thanh My
The adventure begins with a pickup from your accommodation at 7:30 am. We’ll follow the Cam Le river into the countryside and open roads dotted with colorful temples. Step back in time with a visit to Hill 55, which was an important strategic location during the war, and was also once the site of the Hill 55 Sniper Training School, run and manned by the US Marine Corps.
A visit to My Son Temples, a UNESCO world heritage site in the jungle, is optional but definitely recommended for culture and history buffs alike!
The historic Ho Chi Minh Trail takes us north into the mountains and more jungle-covered valleys, before enjoying a local lunch with the locals of an ethnic hill tribe village.
An after lunch dip underneath a local waterfall is just what you need before we head onto our final stretch of road for the day and towards Thanh My where a cold beer awaits us at the hotel.
Thanh My to Lao Bao
Day two starts with the historic Ho Chi Minh Trail leading us north into the mountains and jungle-covered valleys, stopping for lunch at the A Shau Valley near the famous Hamburger Hill where a very prominent battle took place during the war, proudly rising from the Laos border.
After lunch, the winding mountain passes will lead us down and towards the coastal roads, passing by reservoirs, rivers and wooden stilt houses of local tribespeople.
Next, we’ll cross into the DMZ itself, following along the historic Route 9 into the mountain towards the Laos border with a photo stop at an abandoned tank. A short ride to Lao Bao takes us to a local market where you’ll see the trading of many ‘questionable’ items that frequently cross the border. Off to the hotel where a cold beer awaits us!
Lao Bao to PhongNha
We’ll start the day with a bit of history when we visit the place where the longest battle in Vietnam took place. Khe Sanh combat base houses a small museum and original tanks, helicopters and planes can still be seen on the runway.
A definite bucket list item for all bikers is where we’re headed next, the Ho Chi Minh Trail, known as one of the best roads for motorcycle rides in Asia! Cruising through coffee plantations we’ll traverse an 1100-meter mountain pass through the untouched jungle and small villages where ethnic tribes still live in traditional wooden stilt houses.
At the foot of giant Karst mountains lies a small hill tribe village where we’ll enjoy a local lunch before heading into the mountains with incredible views before the final stretch of our journey.
Entering Phong Nha National park, a UNESCO Heritage area of breathtaking natural beauty, we’ll slowly make our way along the historic Victory Road down towards the hotel.
Phong Nha to Hue
Today we’re cruising the coastal roads, passing by remains of a church that was bombed during the war, we’ll head into Dong Hoi city. From here we’ll cruise next to the beach over small streams and through small fishing villages, and through black pepper fields and endless rows of rubber trees on.
Fuel up on a local lunch at Vinh Moc and visit the incredible underground tunnel network where the entire village lived for 8 years during the war! Back on the bikes, we’ll follow the coastal roads through small fishing villages and aqua-farming ponds before crossing the Tam Giang lagoon, where, surrounded by endless rice paddies, we’ll take the lesser traveled, quiet country roads towards our hotel in Hue city.
Hue to Danang / Hoi An
Step back in time with a visit to the imperial citadel, once the home of the last emperors of Vietnam, it’s now a UNESCO world heritage site. Back on the bikes, you’ll soon be surrounded by endless rice paddies, and the lesser traveled, quiet country roads where you’ll see giant fishing nets across Tam Giang lagoon. A visit to a cemetery might sound odd, but the City of Ghosts, known as Vietnam’s most luxurious cemetery, is a sight to behold! A relaxed lunch on a nearby beach is just the thing needed to fuel up for the next exciting part of our journey: passing the pristine Lang Co bay and ascending the famous Hai Van Pass with its 21km of sweeping bends and breathtaking coastal views. After that adrenaline rush, it’s finally time to head back to base for a well deserved cold beer!
