A new 14-days ‘Remote Vietnam and Laos by Bike’ tour has been launched by SpiceRoads

This one-off travel experience leads cyclists through local communities nestled in picture-perfect landscapes, and explores fascinating historical sites. The opportunity to understand and immerse yourself in the local culture is part of the tour. 

Where does the route take me?

The tour kicks off with a short transfer out of the manic city of Hanoi and into the tranquil countryside. You will visit local artisans in Bat Trang, join a relaxing cruise through three natural caves, and visit the ancient capital of the Dinh and Ly dynasties.

Tour highlights:

-      Riding through remote regions of Vietnam and Laos

-      Travelling by boat on the Ngo Dong River to Bich Dong Pagoda

-      Staying in Cuc Phuong National Park

-      Visiting the Endangered Primate Rescue Centre

-      Discovering the serene Mai Chau valley

-      Exploring some of the 480 Vieng Xai caves

-     Wildlife spotting in the jungles of Nam Et-Phou Louey National Protected Area

-      Cycling through the historical Plain of Jars

-      Boating to the famous Buddha-filled Pak Ou Cave

 
The tour cycles on paved roads, alongside rivers, through lush paddy fields, into karst landscapes and peaceful villages.  The route also takes on climbs to truly appreciate the beautiful natural surroundings. On days when the climbs are tough, distances cycled are shortened; rides vary between 30 and 70 km per day with the option of cycling 100 km for one day.

The tour cost is approximately £1966, with an additional £120 for bicycle rental. The single supplement is £216. Costs include accommodation, main meals, support vehicle, drinks and snacks while riding.
