Ride your own bike out into the wilderness on one of the North Vietnam Motorbike Tours of a lifetime. You’ll visit Ha Giang by the Chinese border and the famous Ba Be. The scenery of this tour is truly jaw dropping and the region is rarely visited by tourists. You’ll have plenty of winding mountain roads all to yourself.

The conditions of the road will vary, but all will be on bitumen unless the road is under repair. Roads will be an exciting mix of winding mountain roads, sweeping bends through rice fields, busy highways and roads through local villages.

Travelling Vietnam by Motorbike

This tour isn’t for first time motorbike riders. You’ll need to have ridden a bike before, hold a valid international license and make sure you know how to handle a four stroke bike. This tour is liberating and beautiful.

When you arrive in Hanoi you’ll be given a safety briefing and introduced to your support crew. A truck will drive alongside us and will always be on call for mechanical and medical support or to give you a rest from riding.

Minimum number of people

Due to the large number of support staff required for this trip we recommend a minimum booking of 4 people per trip. Any less and the cost of the trip becomes very expensive.

For groups of 6 or more the tour will include a tour support van.

For groups of 8 or more the tour will include a medic team member.


Travelling way into the countryside means we won’t always be staying in complete comfort. This journey includes a mixture of 2 and 4 star hotels.
