The tour is described by the operator as challenging as it involves approximately 62% of off-road riding on dirt trails with many ups and downs and approximately 50-60kms (31-37mi) of intensive riding per day. Your route follows a mixture of well-surfaced roads and off-road tracks, with some quite rough parts, so some off-road riding skills are an advantage. There is, however, a support van on hand – for some of the trails where a minibus cannot go, a support motorcycle will be on hand before meeting up with the minibus again – so if you do need a rest then this can easily be arranged.
Aside from the fantastic mountain biking, you'll cycle through spectacular countryside, through minority villages, rainforests, rice fields, tea plantations and lush landscapes. The off-road tracks will take you over challenging terrain, across narrow suspension bridges and past glorious waterfalls. You will feel like you are the first one to discover these hidden away natural wonders as you pedal through amazing, off the beaten track scenery with locals, keen to show you where the best spots are at. Enjoy awesome biking, authentic Vietnam, fantastic food and great company on this 8-day trip not to be missed.
