4 days/3 nights – Take a shot of history as we ride through stunning mountain scenery and lush, mountain pathways that lead us back in time to remote border villages and to sites of more recent and bloody events. We explore sites from the American-Vietnamese war, including Khe Sanh and the notorious Vinh Moc tunnels. Both places have names that are etched in history. We retrace the steps taken by millions of soldiers as we travel down the infamous Highway 9. A night of luxury returns us to the present in the historic city of Hue, before a relaxed ride along Vietnam’s stunning coastline brings us back to Hoi An on the final day.

Hoi An to Tay Giang 120 km)

We pick you up from your hotel and then head west and climb our way into the mountains. As we wind our way up into the hills towards the Lao border home to the Co Tu Ethnic minority group, we take a break to visit some Co Tu Ethnic Minority villages and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before continuing our journey deep in to the mountains, meandering through isolated villages of the Co Tu people where the culture and traditions remain untouched by time making this remote and staggeringly beautiful region home to one of the most authentic hill tribes to remain in Vietnam.

(Meals: Lunch, Dinner)

Tay Giang to Khe Sanh via A Luoi (235 km)

After breakfast in the village, we resume our bike ride to Khe Sanh. Today we travel the historic Ho Chi Minh Highway through lush rainforests and over magnificent mountain passes. Take a refreshing dip in a mountain waterfall at midday, where we’ll break for a picnic lunch.We begin the afternoon winding through the A Shau Valley, a ruggedly beautiful valley that became famous during the American War as the site of many battles – the most famous being Khe Sanh – where we stay for the night. Before we check into the hotel we visit the Museum and former combat base, that was under siege for 67 days.

Khe Sanh to Hue via Vinh Moc Tunnels (220 km)

Driving along Highway 9, we pass famous American war sites like the Rock Pile and Camp Carol, before crossing the former border between North and South Vietnam at the 17th parallel. We arrive at the Vinh Moc tunnels, where an entire village went underground in the 1960s to survive the bombing. After exploring the tunnels, we head to a local beach where you can cool off with a swim. After lunch, we drive along the coastline and arrive in Hue late afternoon.

Hue to Hoi An via Hai Van Pass (190 km)

On your bike – it’s time to set off on the final day of our motorbike adventure! Today’s bike journey takes us back to Hoi An by a different route, trading in the mountains for the gorgeous Vietnamese coastline. We head east from Hue and then travel parallel to the sea, passing through fishing villages and along pristine sandy beaches for the first part of the drive. The salty air and refreshing sea breezes are a dramatic contrast to the mountain air from the previous days. We’ll stop often to dip our toes in the sea, chat with fishermen and to take photos. At the half way point of our drive, we climb to Highway 1’s highest point, Hai Van Pass, where panoramic views of the coast are all around. The road then winds down toward Hoi An, passing through Danang city and along the coastline.
