Cycle from the south heading north through Vietnam, starting in the highlands before following the coast the rest of the way. After a short flight to the colonial-era town of Dalat, it’s a stunning six-day cycle to Hoi An. Lead by an expert guide, you’ll ride in a small group on top quality bikes. Most of the route is on paved backroads, and you’ll cover a few miles by road and railway.

With some longer days and small hills, you’ll enjoy this tour most if you cycle regularly at home. There’s a halfway rest day, and the support van is always on hand if you need a break. With lots of variety, you’ll ride through misty pine forests to beaches, fishing villages and historic landmarks. Along the route, you’ll taste local beer, fresh seafood and some of the best coffee in Southeast Asia. On the final day, the boat ride into the ancient city of Hoi An is a fantastic way to finish.
