Jungle Rider Adventure
5 days/4 nights
Driver / Pillion, Jeep, Motorbike self-ride, Scooter self-ride
Price: from 800 USD
5 days/4 nights – Stunning scenery, gorgeous roads and great riding: pretty much the perfect combination for an unforgettable jungle adventure. With five days up our sleeve, there is plenty of time to get well off the beaten track. We’ll head into the remote mountains of the central highlands and into the famous Phuong Nha National Park – one of Vietnam’s few remaining pockets of old growth forest. Tightly restricted access to the park means you’ll be one a very select few who will get to experience this stunning World Heritage site and the cultures that live within it. To maintain our feeling of seclusion, we’ll take a unique coastal route back to Hoi An, giving the chaos of Highway 1 a wide berth!

DAY 1: COUNTRYSIDE RIDING
Hoi An to Tay Giang (or Bho Hoong) (120 km)
We start the first day of riding from our garage in Hoi An, riding out into the beautiful countryside before we stop at Marble Mountain for a short visit. 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 Ethnic minority group, 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 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.
(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 Khe Sanh via A Luoi (235 km)
After breakfast, we resume our bike ride to Khe Sanh. Today’s journey traverses 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 begins 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, which was under siege for 67 days.
(Accommodation: Hotel ***)
(Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
DAY 3: HILL TRIBE COUNTRY
Khe Sanh to Phong Nha/Ke Bang National Park (240 km)
Today’s ride is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Obtaining special military permission, we are able to drive the remote western branch of the Ho Chi Minh Highway through majestic limestone karst and spectacular old-growth jungle. Be amazed at the tenacity of the Vietnamese people during the US war, as this road follows the original Ho Chi Minh Trail through some of the most rugged terrain on Earth.
(Accommodation: *** Hotel)
(Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
DAY 4: TUNNELS & TRAILS
Phong Nha/Ke Bang National Park to Hue (220 km)
Driving along Ho Chi Minh Highway East, 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 cross the 17th parallel the former North/south divide then drive along the coastline arriving in Hue late afternoon.
(Accommodation: Hotel ***)
(Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner)
DAY 5: THE COAST ROAD
Hue to Hoi An (190 km)
Rise and shine, 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 Vietnam’s gorgeous 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.
