Explore vibrant Vietnam on two wheels

Head to the very heart of South East Asia and take a two-wheeled tour of vibrant Vietnam! Our journey takes you from the South to the North on a journey of incredible contrasts, from bustling cities to stunning coastline. En route you’ll encounter…

1. Ho Chi Minh City
Still known locally as Saigon, this is the starting point of your adventure and offers a great introduction to the country – perfect for finding your feet and discovering a bit more about Vietnam’s complex history.
2. DalatPositioned in the foothills of the central highlands and surrounded by farms and tropical scenery, your rides in and out of the town will give you the chance to head off the tourist trail in search of a more rural pace of life.

3. Hoi An
Listed as a UNESCO site, the old town is famed for its traditional vibes and is a delight to behold! We’ve arranged a free day here so you can fully immerse yourself in its atmospheric charms.

4. Hue
Straddling the ‘perfume river’, the former capital of Vietnam is studded with imperial treasures that provide a fascinating insight into its rich, dynastic past. You’ll enjoy many of the highlights on a specially designed city tour…by bike!

5. Hanoi
The final stop on your Vietnam itinerary is one of the country’s most charming cities! Hanoi’s mix of colonial architecture and eclectic energy really has to be seen to be believed. The perfect end to a spellbinding adventure…

Discover vibrant Vietnam by bike

A treat for the senses awaits in vibrant Vietnam where our cycling holiday enables you to experience the authentic sights and sounds of this ethereal destination! With lots of Skedaddlers having joined us here in the past year, we thought we’d share some of our favourite soundbites from their tours:

Best for an all-round experience…
This gave us everything that we seek from a cycling holiday: adventure, exercise, companionship, new experiences and challenges, excellent leadership and organisation, as well as value for money.’ Martyn, Cheshire, UK.

An authentic way to travel…
‘By cycling we were better able to connect with the locals than traveling as regular tourists. I have great memories of all the school kids calling greetings and giving us high fives as we passed through their villages.’ Stephen, Devon, UK.

A great guiding team to boot…
I think our guide was probably the best guide tour leader we have ever had, and we have had some good ones! We felt confident and safe with him, as well as liking him enormously on a personal level.’ Peter, Chesire, UK.

Those landscapes take some beating…
‘I loved the rides in the hills and countryside, together with the long descents, this was a magical journey.’ Karen, London, UK.
