Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.
Walking – 8-12 km a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort. Layover days accommodate varying preferences.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.
Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.

Charming towns & rural beauty
Even in the midst of vibrant economic growth, Vietnam is as quaint and picturesque as the first time we cycled here more than a decade ago. Certainly, the country is thriving, but that just means the roads are a bit better (making our bikes a little happier) and even more luxurious hotels pepper the coast. The people remain the same: gracious, warm and infinitely inviting—and we certainly meet a lot of them on this epic journey from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh. In between, we take in all the highlights, from historic Hoi An to the Imperial tombs, to endless miles of scenic country and coastal roads.
*This trip has two different itineraries based on seasonality. November—December trips visit Nha Trang and January—April departures include Hue. Please request the itinerary that corresponds with the month you plan to travel. Price is inclusive of $395 internal flights.

Memorable moments: Sunset over the bay at Six Senses; biking along the trails of Vietnam and seeing the smiling children call out "hello, hello"; soaking up the feel of the countryside and seeing the people in their everyday lives. Guides are spectacular and make the trip outstanding.— Barbara Hill
