Twelve days takes us through some of Vietnam’s wildest and most diverse hidden highland areas. Winding roads thread through jungle-covered mountains, deep gorges, and isolated wooden villages where little has changed for hundreds of years. Local farmers, hill-tribes and excited children will wave us on our way as we ride deep into Vietnam’s rural mountainous heart.

Many of the roads we ride see low traffic, and we encounter parts of Vietnam that's rarely seen by the outside world. There’s nothing like the sense of freedom and adventure when riding these spectacular roads and meeting the exceptionally hospitable locals along the way. We travel at a relaxed pace with plenty of time for random roadside stops, allowing you to really take everything in and get the most out of this unique experience.

OUR TOURS ARE RANKED IN THE TOP 5 BEST RIDES ON EARTH

Many strategies were devised here, though Dalat was largely untouched by the fighting. However, it was in fact home to the National Military Academy. Dalat today is famed as the city of love, partially owing to its flower growing, it has become a popular holiday retreat for young Vietnamese couples. Evenings are cool and the local night market is a must-see.  enjoy the comforts of our very welcoming hotel .
