TOUR DESCRIPTION:


Northwestern Vietnam is absolutely remarkable because of its rugged mountain ranges, green valleys and famous rice terraces, that together provide a unique backdrop to our tour. The mountains can reach up to 3000 m above sea level, and the valleys are extremely steep and deep. The rich cultural diversity and many ethnic minorities living in the area enables visitors to experience a totally different Vietnam.
Vietnamese are welcoming and friendly, and the country is extremely safe. We will spend part of our journey on single tracks, going in and out of valleys, following rice terraces and rivers. It will be steep and narrow at times, but an absolute thrill! Prior off-road experience and good bike control will help riders make the most of this tour.

After the tour, there is the possibility to enjoy a well deserved break: one of the most iconic cruises of Asia aboard a 5 star boat on the famous HaLong Bay. Even for those more into motorcycling than cruising, it is an unforgettable experience and a terrific way to cap off the North Vietnam off-road tour.
