Motorcycle Touring Route Map (Enlarge to know where we ride in Northern Vietnam.)

The following is some information that will help you plan your travel. All of our tours can be customized before and during the tour depending on actual road and weather conditions and group riding skills. Everybody is welcome, from beginners to experienced bikers! Below are the five most typical routes we suggest in North Vietnam, by mixing and combining them we can create a variety of adventures.

If you ride self-guided, write itinerary day by day and names of towns or places that you ride on paper.
