Get off the beach and on-ya-bike for a 4-day adventure as we follow the Ho Chi Minh Trail through jungle-covered mountains and valleys dotted by remote hill tribes villages and ending our adventure in UNESCO world heritage site, Phong Nha National Park. 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 Dak To
The adventure begins with a pickup from your accommodation at 7:30 am. Following the coastal road, we’ll cruise past Marble Mountains and along the beautiful beaches of Hoi An before heading towards the mountains and slowly make our way through small villages and rice fields. Rice farms give way to dense jungle-covered landscapes with hidden waterfalls, and it’s time to stop for some lunch in a remote hill tribe village.
The next stretch of road is fairly new so we’ll mostly have it to ourselves which will allow us to appreciate the endless views of the untouched landscape as we climb up to 1800m. Passing through many ethnic minority villages, we’ll arrive at Dak To where we can take a great group photo with the army tanks in the square before taking our final ride or the day along an abandoned runway of the old US Airbase. At the hotel, a well deserved cold beer awaits!
Dak To to Thanh My
The start of day two leads us on the road-less-traveled through small hill tribe villages as we head toward one of central Vietnam’s most beautiful valleys on a route known to only a few in this rural area.
Surrounded by endless stretches of jungle, rice terraces, and remote villages, you might think you've traveled all the way north to Sapa! During our lunch stop at a hill tribe village, you’ll be able to gain some local insight into how they make a living through the collection of a rare type of ginseng. Leaving this magical valley behind, we get on to the famous Ho Chi Minh Trail passing by the famous Ba Hoang waterfall where legend has it the Cham Princess once escaped from Vietnam into Laos. We’ll end the day in the sleepy town of Than My, having a cold beer at our hotel!
Thanh My to Lao Bao
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 Phong Nha
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, which will be the final destination on this incredible adventure.
