DAY 1: COUNTRYSIDE RIDING
Hoi An to Tay Giang (or Bho Hoong) (120 km)
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. With the wind in your hair, we zip through the Hoi An countryside to Marble Mountain where the thrill-lovers among us can opt for an abseiling adventure into Hell’s Cave. We 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 minority, we take a break to visit one of the few remaining Co Tu woodcarvers and enjoy a home cooked lunch in his stilted house 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.
(For this night we have several options: A traditional basic bamboo hut at Droong village, a basic hotel room in Tay Giang or a more luxurious experience at Bho Hoong Bungalows ***.)
(Accommodation: Hotel – Upgrade to Bho Hoong Bungalow on request)
(Meals: Lunch, Dinner)
DAY 2: HO CHI MINH TRAIL
Tay Giang to Hue (195 km)
Day two of your motorbike adventure begins with breakfast before we jump on the bikes to resume our adventure through the rugged highlands of Central Vietnam. This time we follow a new section of the Ho Chi Minh Trail toward the Laos border, crossing through lush rainforests and over mountain passes on roads perfectly suited to motorbikes. Keep your camera handy as the views are stunning!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 motorbike 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- before catching glimpses of the iconic Perfume River from the hills. We cruise into the centre of Hue in the early evening.
(Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
DAY 3: HAI VAN PASS & COAST
Hue to Hoi An via Hai Van Pass (190km)
Rise and shine, it’s time to set off on the final day of our adventure. Today’s bike journey takes us back to Hoi An by a different route, trading in the mountains for the gorgeous Vietnam 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, Marble Mountain and along the coastline.
