Day
1
Hue - Dong Ha

We depart early at 7:30 for idyllic biking to Dong Ha today. After you are met at the hotel, followed by a short vehicle transfer to Pha Tam Giang lagoon. We cycle on a quiet country road along the Tam Giang lagoon. Enjoy the stunning landscape along the peninsula, views several fishing boats on the lagoon, see water buffalos working on rustic farmlands, and pass some vibrant local markets. As we leave the lagoon behind, take a right turn on the dirt track to coast. The trails are flat through small hamlets with tiny thatch houses, colourful temples, and blue beaches. There are many coffee breaks along the coast. Then we cycle toward Dong Ha, and the paths are mainly through the countryside with lotus fields, rice paddies and rivers that crisscross the vast farmlands. The ride is unique; cross through charming villages, rustic farmlands of vegetables takes us to the urban District, and finally, a transfer takes us to City Center.

Hien Luong Bridge – Vinh Moc Tunnels - Hue

After breakfast, we travel by support vehicle to Hien Luong Bridge,- Ben Hai River was the border between North and South Vietnam was 76.1 km in length in a cross from east to west near the Dong Ha City. The DMZ- Vietnamese Demilitarized Zone was established as the borderline between North and South Vietnam from July 1954 to 1976 with 81 fierce days and nights at Quang Tri. We walk on the historic bridge of Hien Luong, take plenty of photos, view the peaceful Ben Hai River, and visit its History Museum before cycling on quiet back roads along this river until we turn left the minor road through the countryside. The rural roads are gentle and mixed with concrete and asphalt, crossing the tranquil hamlets and rustic countryside villages. The local guide will take us through all levels and see how people live during the bombardment as we reach the tunnels. Then we follow the coast, ride to Cua Tung Beach, and have a seafood lunch at a local restaurant by the sea. After lunch, relax on a vehicle driving on the coast to Hue. We stop at Cua Viet Beach to have Vietnamese coffee before going on freeways to Hue City.

Road Condition

We have been making many inspection trips before the company operating and picked up all different terrains, rural paths, single tracks, and beautiful country back roads to design our unique bike tours as per your expectation. Our team, support vehicles always standby as nearest riders and are on hands with a phone call. If the riders, who love leisurely ride with short routes or distance and will hop on the support vehicles, take a rest when the other riders in the group keep exploring the beautiful countryside as long routes as they wish. We ensure that all riders are satisfied with how Vietnam Backroads organizes cycling trips without worry.


Every morning, you will transfer out of the bustling towns and ride into rustic villages and country farms and retransfer in the late afternoon through heavy traffic into the city.


Central Coast and in Central Provinces

Our hand-picked up routes with the unique tailor-make programme will please your ride. Our bicycle tours are on small roads and rural paths from Ha Noi and begin the ride in Dong Hoi down the coast to Ho Chi Minh. Another way around from Saigon to Ha Noi, and start the ride in Dalat, then down to shore, from the southern coast to the central provinces: Phan Thiet to Phan Rang, Nha Trang, Tuy Hoa, Quy Nhon, Quang Ngai, Hoi An, Hue and Dong Ha, Dong Hoi (DMZ) and Phong Nha where the ride ends or begins depending on the trip's destinations. Throughout the ride, enjoy descending the mountain from Dalat to Nha Trang, enjoy breathtaking views of Khanh Le/ Hon Giao Passes, ride along the stunning coastal routes in Quy Nhon, immerse yourself in seaside villages along the dirt tracks, meet the farmers in the vast agricultural farmlands in Hoi An before looking over the spectacular views of Hai Van Mountain Pass, vast agricultural farmlands in Hoi An, and networks of canals in rivers, and colourful lanterns lining the tiny streets in Hoi An, discover the Hue Purple City, and Quang Tri ancient town all the ways to Phong Nha through DMZ.


Stunning coast & Beaches & Seaside villages

Many small country roads are smooth and small, with less traffic, long sandy local beaches, peninsula, lagoon, mountains along the coast, and small towns; however, some roads are rolling mountains, hills, and stunning bays that the minor roads are the best choice.


Mountains, Hills and Tropical forests and Jungles

Depend on the trips you booked and where it travels through mountain climbs throughout the route, rainforest, and jungles far from the coast where the rural infrastructures are underdeveloped, or paths through deeply remote hamlets and closed to traffic. In this case, your guide will avoid riding on many undeveloped rural villages, and dirt tracks are unsafe, bumpy and very rocky, slippery and landslide when it rains, and lead you depending on the minor roads.


We ride mostly on small paths along fishing villages, seafood farms, and lush flat rural farmlands, small villages for support vehicles to go along with the riders. But the support vehicle will be on minor roads running parallel and driving along as close to riders as possible. The networks of small paths crisscross rural, and this will be easy for riders to meet the support vehicles at corners, forks on country roads after approximately 15 km, 20 km, or 25 to 30 km on a daily bike ride.

Weather

The rainy season in Central Vietnam is usually around September until early last January, which coincides with the best humidity and temperature of the entire year, with the high levels of rainfall from September to November. Sometimes, typhoons from the sea affect Hoi An, and flooding might occur in Hoi An's old town from October to December. October until February is the peak season for tourism in the country. The dry season between January & August with temperatures ranging in the mid 30°C, and humidity. In general, the weather in central is divided into two seasons, and the rainy season and the dry season do not coincide with the two climatic regions of North and South. It's hot and humid from May to August, so it's the best time to do bicycle tours from September to April.
