What's the tour like?
This biking adventure takes you from Hue to Nha Trang by bus, boat, and bike. Lots of time on this tour is spent sight-seeing and exploring Vietnam. The cycling is on a mixture of well-surfaced roads and good quality, wide dirt tracks. Away from the main roads, cycling in Vietnam is often a wonderful experience. The bicycle is still the most common form of transport and you will share the road with girls in flowing ao dais, school children, and farmers.
The rest days are at the end of this tour where you'll have time to relax at Whale Island before heading to Nha Trang for onward connections. By the end of the tour, you'll hopefully come to know and perhaps even understand Vietnam and the Vietnamese.
Suitability: This trip is suitable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. This trip is not too arduous; riders with less experience are more than welcome, although the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy it.
Biking Conditions: This trip is mainly on good quality tarmac roads and some vehicle-width dirt roads. Day 4 has an off-road trail (can be rocky), but an easier alternative is available if required. An air-conditioned support bus travels behind the group. On the occasions when it is impossible for the bus to follow, the guide follows behind on a motorcycle. Participants can cycle as much or as little as they like and still enjoy the same views as the rest of the group.
Are helmets included when hiring a bike?
Yes, if you're hiring a bike from the operator, a complimentary helmet is provided, although you are welcome to bring your own if you wish.
