Our Vietnam cycling tours offer a fascinating tour of discovery in this diverse country. From the capital city of Hanoi to the remote mountains of the northeast, Vietnam is a place of dramatic differences, encapsulating every element of the perfect bike ride. There are challenging climbs and fantastic descents, breathtaking views and an extremely warm welcome from the friendly locals at the end of each day.
On our Vietnam cycling trips you’ll journey through colorful fishing villages and lush rice paddies, pedal amid mountains cloaked in jungle and national parks flanked by glistening lakes, and explore the spectacular karst scenery of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ha Giang, where high peaks and deep canyons make for an entirely unique landscape.
I was drawn to this trip because I wanted to visit and learn more about this fascinating part of the world which has such a dramatic history. As it was my first cycling holiday I was also keen to choose a trip that wasn’t too strenuous and offered a good balance of activity and cultural interest. The trip fully met, and in fact, exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend the trip as a way of having a really enjoyable and active holiday while experiencing the history and culture of these proud and vibrant countries. (The fantastic weather was a lovely bonus!)
A fascinating trip through the 3 Baltic countries. The terrain was quite flat and the cycling easy over an amazing mix of forest trails generous cycle paths and some road travel. We were blessed with good weather and even managed to swim in the Baltic 3 times. The tour gave us a great insight into the conditions within all 3 countries during the Soviet era and how things have changed since then. The trip encompassed a wide range of activities and experiences ranging from climbing a forest fire watch tower to descending into the depths of an old Soviet nuclear missile site. Our travels were very much “off the beaten track” and we were able to meet the locals and had the opportunity to sample the local cuisine, including pink beetroot soup, smoked herring and potato-covered “zeppelins”.
