Why Ride Guided?
There is no better way to experience Vietnam than to take guided motorbike tours. Two wheels are the mean of transport most Vietnamese people use. High mountain roads, rain forests, mountain passes, friendly and colorful ethnic groups, clear water sand beaches and (terrace) rice paddies to name a few, Vietnam is far too beautiful through bus windows. To travel in lesser known areas of Vietnam, we’ll tailor affordable Vietnam motorcycle holiday itineraries to your interests and riding ability. Ride Vietnam now! Some of Asia’s most unforgettable scenery awaits you.
We ride mainly in the Northern mountains of Vietnam including Northwest, Northeast, Sapa via roof roads, Ha Giang and Dong Van karst Geo-Park, Central North and Halong Bay. If you wish you can ride down South on the coastal road on Highway 1 or the new Ho Chi Minh road and end anywhere you want like Hue, Hoi An, Nha Trang or Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).
Our guided motorbike tours start in Hanoi, from one day to as long as you want. Typically, allow 7 to 10 days for a motorcycle ride that covers most of the Northern mountains of Vietnam.

Northwest Vietnam Motorcycle Adventures
This is a far away motorbiking adventure. For a long time, Northwest Vietnam is known as a very beautiful place but the roads are quite rough. There are more hill tribe people living in this area than anywhere in Vietnam. In addition, you take in some of the most stunning mountain views. Due to recent road works and landslides (in summer) and cold, misty weather (in winter), this motorbike adventure is best for intermediate and experienced riders.
We recommend this 7 days itinerary.
