Hoi An to Prao (120 km)

Delve into the heart of central Vietnam with this 2-day adventure. We set off from Hoi An on what promises to be an unforgettable voyage of rugged roads, rustic villages and stunning highlands. Pack your sense of adventure and leave behind those preconceived notions of touristy villages: this journey is the real deal. We 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 minority, we take a break and enjoy a local lunch before continuing our journey deep in to the mountains, meandering through isolated villages 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.

We arrive mid afternoon at our stop for the night, home to the Co Tu Ethnic Minority group.

(Accommodation: Bungalow or local hotel)
(Meals: Lunch, Dinner)

Prao to Hue (195 km)

Day two of your adventure begins with breakfast before we are back on the road to resume our journey through the rugged highlands of Central Vietnam. This time we follow a new section of the Ho Chi Minh Trail toward the Lao border, crossing through lush rainforests and over mountain passes on roads perfectly suited to motorbikes and Jeeps. Keep your camera handy as the views are certainly photo-worthy.Midday we take a break for a picnic lunch in the shade of a mountain waterfall. Take a swim in the cool waters or simply lay back and relax in the solitude. We then begin the last stretch of today’s journey, descending down to Hue. But the adventure isn’t over yet! The landscape continues to change as we make our way to the flatlands, passing through A Shau valley- an area that played a key role during the American war- and then catching glimpses of the iconic Perfume River from the hills. We cruise into Hue’s centre in the early evening.
