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.
