Program

Day 1: Hanoi - Ban Buoc Village in Mai Chau (191 kilometers / 117 miles)

Hanoi motorbike tour to Mai Chau starts from the western outskirts of Hanoi at 8:30 a.m. Just after 45-minute riding, you will be in countryside back-roads through some rural villages locating between hills and rice fields. Lunch is in Yen Lac, Hoa Binh province. The ride in the afternoon is promised to be one of the best Northern Vietnam motorbike tours.

As a motorbike tour expert, Hanoi Easy Rider is different from the other Hanoi motorcycle tour organizers as they will take you on the better and safer roads with a more beautiful view. All this motorbike ride is on mountain back-roads with a beautiful view of the mountain, river, and cute houses on stilts. You will be in Mai Chau Valley at 5:00 p.m. Home stay with the Thai people.

Day 2: Mai Chau - Moc Chau - Phu Yen (170 kilometers / 106 miles)

After local breakfast with the host, take it easy with a short walk around the peaceful villages of the Thai people who live in the stilted houses. Then get back to the bikes and keep motorcycle touring North Vietnam up to Moc Chau. To avoid the highway No 6, they group will ride on the small mountain road that was built by the French. This road is almost empty and offers a very beautiful view of the mountain.

The short motorbike ride on this forgotten road must be the highlight of the northwest Vietnam motorcycle tour. After lunch in Moc Chau, you will hit all the way to Da river lake. After crossing the lake, you will have another great motorbike ride along the river. This ride is promised to be the same as the coastal road Vietnam motorcycle tour.

The group will arrive at Phu Yen in the early afternoon. If you are not tired, you can keep riding around the Phu Yen Valley through some villages and rice fields, it can offer a joyful offroad motorcycle ride.

Day 3: Phu Yen - Mu Cang Chai - Than Uyen (210 kilometers / 130 miles)

You will have “Pho” - a must-try food in Vietnam for breakfast and depart at around 8:00 a.m. The ride today will be surely the highlight of the Northern Vietnam motorbike tour. You’ll cross some of the longest and most beautiful mountain passes in North of Vietnam which can give you amazing pictures of mountain and terrace fields.

The road is smooth and sealed but the scenery and the rustic villages of the hill tribes along the way will make you stop every meter of the road. Personally, this is one of the best motorbike tours in Vietnam. You will will end the day at the hotel in Than Uyen at 5:00 p.m.

Day 4: Than Uyen - Sa Pa (110 kilometers / 68 kilometers)

This motorbike ride to Sa Pa is another highlight of the Northwestern Vietnam motorcycle tour.

You will be in up to the level of 1,600 meters above the sea level where you call the town in the cloud, Sa Pa, at noon time. In the afternoon, you will have short motorbike tour around Sa Pa to some rustic villages of the Black H’mong, the Tay, and the Zay people. In addition, the Sa Pa motorbike ride along the Muong Hoa valley promises to give you plenty pictures of the breathtaking scenery of this most beautiful valley in North Vietnam.

You will be back to the hotel in Sa Pa town in the late afternoon.

Day 5: Sa Pa - Thac Ba Lake (220 kilometers / 137 miles)

After lunch in Pho Rang, you will make a turn to back-roads through lovely villages with beautiful rice fields between the palm tree hills. The last 80-kilometer ride must be one of the most beautiful motorbike tours in Northern Vietnam. You will be in the peaceful village of the Dzao people that located nearby the Thac Ba Lake bank, drop the bikes in the village and have a great boat trip around the lake for about one hour.

Day 6: Thac Ba Lake - Ha Noi (180 kilometers / 112 miles)
