MEKONG DELTA BY BIKE 8 Days 7 Nights

Biking is the ultimate way to explore Vietnam. Traveling by bike affords a kind of eye-level communion that you can’t get in a car or on a bus or train. Biking tours truly are the best way to get close to nature and interact with local people.

We have designed our amazing bicycle tours in Vietnam to cater to those who may want anything from a half-day biking tour to a three-week excursion along the length of the country. In order to provide the best service, group size is limited to 10-12 people.

Our bikes are top quality, lightweight and can be adapted according to the terrain and size of any rider, including children. All our bike trips are fully supported with an air-conditioned back-up van offering relief from the heat and tired leg muscles. It is also stocked with first aid kits, drinks, spares and tools. Our biking guides are great cycling enthusiasts with passion and extensive experience.

Our cycling trips have been carefully designed by our travel specialists to provide you with an active holiday as you explore Vietnam’s incredible history, diverse cultures, stunning scenery and rich heritage. You will have plenty of time for relaxation and exploration on your own, while enjoying flexibility, privacy and peace of mind.
