Once in the mountains, we’ll begin our cycling adventure to Thanh Phu village. We’ll ride through a spectacular landscape of verdant mountain scenery and over a couple of small passes. Lunch will be served in a local home. From here, we’ll continue a scenic ride crossing the valleys through villages, rice fields and across a hanging bridge to Nam Cang village. We’ll check into the tranquil and comfortable Nam Cang Riverside Lodge, built and owned by a Red Dao Minority family. The rooms are simple here, but comfortable and there is a shared bathroom for tonight. Nam Cang is located in the most remote area of Sapa and here we’ll experience the Red Dao women wearing some of the most colorful and diverse costumes of all Vietnam’s ethnic groups. Herbal bath, local medicine and embroidery are some of the things that the Red Dao are very skilled at. We’ll explore the village and learn how the local villagers make writing paper from rice, silver jewelry and embroidery.

Our hiking route is also through bushes of tropical plants with some steep paths leading up the mountainside. We’ll arrive to Nam Nhiu village at noon, and have the chance to visit another Red Dao village.

Our trekking route is through a beautiful mountainous landscape with vegetable gardens and rice terraces dominating the landscape. We’ll have some time to visit local families and learn about their traditional fiber processing. Then we continue our hike to Ta Phin village of the Red Dzao tribe. This is one of the most scenic valleys in all of Vietnam. We’ll break for lunch here before exploring the village. We’ll then transfer back to Sapa and we’ll have some free time to explore the town, the local market and the sloping streets with all of the colourful handicrafts.

We will start cruising while everyone checks into their cabins. For lunch, we’ll feast on fresh local seafood while cruising to the boundaries of Halong Bay. Our course is away from the populated, touristy areas and into the more authentic reaches of Halong Bay. Once we reach Bai Tu Long we’ll put into sleek two person kayaks and paddle among the incredible karst formations for one or two hours. We’ll then return to the junk boat where everyone can enjoy an aperitif on the sundeck. Dinner is a buffet, served on board featuring an array of salads, seafood, meat and fresh fruit.

Then we have a good chunk of the day to paddle kayaks on the calm emerald waters, past limestone karsts and floating houses, and small sandy beaches that are taken away in the high tide. We’ll have a traditional Vietnamese lunch served on our support boat today. We’ll return to our junk boat mid-afternoon where everyone can refresh before relaxing on the sundeck, enjoying the dramatically beautiful scenery. The evening is at leisure to relax under the starlit sky before retiring to the comfort of our cabin. Overnight again on the Junk Boat.

We spawn our way between a series of floating homes and small rowing boats, all that serve the local’s everyday lives as vehicles, shops, fishing utilities and overnight shelter. We return to the junk boat for 9am and then start cruising back to the pier in Hongai. Brunch will be served along the way. Our driver will be awaiting us here and will transfer us by vehicle back to Hanoi. We should make it back into Hanoi at about 430pm.

Trip Facts

Weather in Vietnam

There is no good or bad season for visiting Vietnam. When one region is wet or cold, another is sunny and pleasantly warm. Vietnam has a remarkably diverse climate because of its wide range of latitudes and altitudes. Although the entire country lies in the inter-tropical zone, local conditions vary from frosty winters in the far northern hills to the yearlong, sub-equatorial warmth of the Mekong Delta. At sea level, the mean annual temperature is 27°C (80°F) in the south, falling to 21°C (70°F) in the extreme north. There is a drop in mean annual temperature of nearly half a degree for every 100 meters in elevation. In the north, November to April is considered winter and May to October is summer. The south has two main seasons: the wet season lasts from May until November and the dry season from December to April.

Weather in Hanoi and Northern Region

September to December: Dry season. Temperatures during day range from 30°C (85°F) in October to 21°C (70°F) in December.
January to Mid-March: Dry season. Evenings can be chilly. Average temperatures during the day are 17°C (62°F).
Mid-March to April: Dry, hot season. Average daily temperatures range from 24 to 29°C.
July to August: Rainy season with monsoon rains and extreme heat.

Travel Documents

Citizens from Canada and the US require a valid passport and a visa to enter Vietnam. The passport must be valid for at least six months beyond the conclusion of the trip. Visa application forms can be downloaded from the embassy websites for Canada or USA. Citizens of other nations should check with the Vietnamese Embassy for entry requirements.

Food and Water

One of the delights of visiting Vietnam is the amazing cuisine. There are nearly 500 different traditional Vietnamese dishes, which are superbly prepared and reasonably priced. Of course, in addition to traditional Vietnamese dishes, there are terrific French restaurants across the country and street vendors selling fresh baguettes and pate. Fish, chicken and seafood are widely available, along with a good selection of vegetables. Countless types of exotic fruits provide for delicious fruit juices as well. While in Vietnam, it is best to drink only bottled or treated drinking water. Fruit drinks, soft drinks, coffee and tea are all widely available and safe to drink.

FAQ

How big are BikeHike's groups?

Our adventures are built for small groups, with a maximum of 12 travellers on each guided tour. Each group is diverse, comprised of men and women of many different nationalities and ages. By travelling in small groups we leave minimal ecological impact, cause less disruption to the native life and are able to gain a better appreciation for our surroundings. Small numbers also allow greater flexibility and spontaneity: a dinner in a local home, an impromptu village wedding invite and any such experiences that can become among the most memorable experiences of your BikeHike adventure.

How fit do I need to be to join this trip?

We understand that people come in many fitness levels, so we've graded our trips accordingly. There are four difficulty levels on our trips: Easy, Moderate, Challenging, and Strenuous. 

This is a “moderate” trip. These trips include 4-5 hours of physical activity throughout the day, with many breaks along the way. The biking portions of BikeHike Adventure’s trips are the most cardiovascular portions of the trips, but there are always support vehicles available on our BikeHike trips. During the biking section, our travellers don’t have to carry anything on their backs as any packs can be carried in the support vehicle.  During the hiking portions of the trip, the most you would have to carry on your back is a daypack.

Listen to a more detailed answer about Vietnam HERE.

Has this trip been run before?

BikeHike Adventures has been operating since 1994. 

The logistics of organizing tours to remote corners of the world can be very complex. Our trip development department spends long hours researching destinations, routes, ground operations and equipment. All itineraries are screened without clients before they are added to our growing repertoire of adventures. Nothing is untested. 

Can you tell me about your typical BikeHike travellers on this trip?

Our travellers share a common love for outdoor adventure. Most are looking for a physical adventure in an unfamiliar destination. A typical trip is comprised of men and women in good physical condition, who exercise regularly and are invigorated by a personal challenge. The age range on this trip is typically from 35-55, although we occasionally get younger and older travellers as well.

What kinds of cultural interactions can one expect travelling in Vietnam?

There is a lot of cultural interaction possible in Vietnam, as it is a very culturally rich destination. There are over 50 ethnic groups in Vietnam, each with their own languages, their own customs and dress. You’ll encounter them on their water buffalos as they’re working their rice fields.  Sometimes we’re even able to visit schools on our BikeHike trips. In the Sapa Valley, hikers actually pass through villages and have the chance to interact with locals in their homes. Even Hanoi, with its colour and chaos, is an incredible cultural experience.

Listen to a more detailed answer HERE.

Will I require vaccinations to travel to Vietnam?

We cannot give official medical advice. We advise you to contact your nearest travel clinic for updated information on health requirements, because this information can and does change frequently. You should plan ahead for your inoculations, as some of them require 30 days to take affect. Some shots cause mild reactions (fatigue to mild fever and nausea) and may require more than one dose over a period of weeks.

A good website for current information is The Centre for Disease Control.

What is the best time of year to travel to Vietnam?

The best months for travel to Vietnam are October through May, after that it turns into the wet, typhoon season. Any month between October and May is a great time to travel to Vietnam. April and May is a popular time to experience Vietnam.

Listen to a more detailed answer HERE.

Which airports do we fly in and out of for this trip?

Hanoi. You can arrive anytime on day 1 of the trip (morning to early afternoon is preferable) and depart anytime on day 11.  Many major carriers fly into Vietnam, including Thai Airways, Cathay Pacific, Japan Airlines, Singapore Airlines and Korean Airlines.

Listen to a more detailed answer HERE.

Do you need a visa to enter Vietnam?

This depends on your country of citizenship. However, Canadians and Americans do require a visa to enter Vietnam. It is possible to do a visa in advance, which we highly recommend to allow you to pass through customs much more quickly and easily. However, it is possible to get a visa last minute, though this requires a few added steps including a letter of recommendation from your tour operator stating your tourism activities in the country, and upon arrival in Vietnam you will enter a special customs line. At times, this line can be quite long. So, whenever possible, it is always better to try to arrange your visa in advance to save time at customs.

Listen to a more detailed answer HERE.

Is it possible to use foreign cell phones or wifi while traveling in Vietnam?

Yes, wifi and cell reception is available in most areas of Vietnam, mainly in the cities. However, while hiking and biking in Vietnam, there are perhaps a few areas where cell reception is unavailable. Most hotels are equipped with wifi in Vietnam. Whenever you are at a homestay in Vietnam, you’ll likely be without wifi as these families are unlikely to have a wifi connection. 

Listen to a more detailed answer HERE.

How has Vietnam travel changed over the years?

In the early days of Vietnam opening up to adventure travel, there were certainly not as many travellers there as there are today. However, it is still very possible to get off of the beaten track when travelling in Vietnam so that you do not feel you are just surrounded by other tourists. Overall though, numbers of travellers are definitely increasing as Vietnam becomes an increasingly popular destination.

Listen to a more detailed answer HERE.

Is Vietnam safe?

Vietnam is regarded as a safe country to visit. The local people are very hospitable and gracious. In larger cities however you must be cautious of street crime. Do not walk with your daypack behind you and always be aware of your surroundings. Use your common sense and protect your important documents, i.e. money, airline ticket and passport. 

Can you tell me more about the activities?

Biking

We include 24-27 speed mountain bikes with front suspension. All bikes have a ‘gel seat’ for added comfort. There is a support vehicle following closely for most of the ride with all the nuts and bolts to make for a hassle free ride and also available to pick up weary riders. On the two day biking segment of the itinerary, we’ll snake along paved and gravel roads, with moderate elevation changes.

Hiking

The hikes are considered ‘light treks’. The terrain is a combination of local dirt roads and trails with some rice terraces being traverses. Hiking boots are not required, but a good pair of hiking shoes or runners is recommended. You are only required to carry a daypack with enough for an overnight at the homestay.

Sea Kayaking

We’ll be paddling in single and tandem kayaks. Most of the paddling is in the shelter of the limestone karsts where the water is very calm. There are plenty of secluded beaches that make a perfect rest stop and great swimming! There are a couple of open water crossings, which usually have small swells and can be a bit choppy on windy days.

Can I take this trip if...

I am a solo traveller? How does solo accommodation and costing work?

Many of our travellers (both men and women) join as singles. On average, BikeHike groups are 75% single travellers and 25% couples. Unlike many adventure travel companies, we don't charge single supplement fees to solo travellers. Instead, we pair you with another traveller of the same gender. If we can't find you a roommate, you get your own room at no additional charge. A single private room supplement fee is only required if you specifically request a confirmed private room for the duration of the trip. Learn more about solo travel with BikeHike

I have special dietary requirements?

We will do our best to accommodate special dietary requests (e.g. vegetarian, gluten free, etc.), but ask that you please discuss your request with us when signing up for a trip.

I am travelling with children? Is this trip children friendly?

While most of our trips are created with adults in mind, many of our itineraries are suitable for strong and active teenagers. This trip is generally not a family focused trip. However, we do offer many Family Focused trips, some of which are able to accommodate children as young as six.

Accommodation

Most of our trips include comfortable mid-range accommodations. This includes accommodation that provides a clean and comfortable experience in characterful surroundings that reflect the destination. To build stronger connections with the communities and support the local economies, we avoid using large international chain brands on BikeHike trips. 

This trip includes the following types of accommodation:

HOTELS 

In an effort to keep money in the communities we visit around the world, BikeHike prefers small hotels, bungalows, and haciendas that showcase the character and local flair of each destination.

ECOLODGE HOTEL 

A couple nights are in hillside ecolodges. However, this accommodation is comfortable and your night's stay will showcase the natural character of the location.

HOMESTAYS

Here, the emphasis is less on the common comforts of western living and more on the experience of living as local. The accommodation will be comfortable but can be very basic by western standards. The washrooms are located outside, separate from the room. There are showers with hot water available.

TRAIN

The air-conditioned sleeping berths have 4 beds. 

JUNK BOAT

You'll have two overnights on-board a luxurious Junk Boat in Halong Bay in air-conditioned cabins with en-suite bathrooms. Each room overlooks the sea. This is an incredible experience as you'll be boating in paradise!

The host family was amazing. We cooked with them in the kitchen. Leigh went for a walk the next day in the village and had breakfast with this unknown family. She couldn't stop talking about them and the experience. They were fascinated that she was this giant of a woman.

We got to experience the amazing landscape, see local villages and meet local people, eat local food. I especially value how much I learned about the food, history and present day issues throughout the entire trip. Had so much fun with our Vietnam guide. Felt like we were travelling with a friend. He made sure we were fed so well - and so much. Ensured that I had substitutes for foods I couldn't eat. Really shared his love of his country and the north of Vietnam. Taught us a lot about history of the country. Great sense of humour. Meals were great. High standards in every place.

I loved the stay at the Riverside Lodge in Sapa and the northern hikes. Our guide was always picking up local foods for us to try. He was very knowledgeable about the people, the food, the local issues, religions, and extremely flexible, adapted well.

We loved the county, the people and the fact that we were off the beaten path. We really got to experience and feel the county and people. The local food was excellent and that combined with having a good mix of activities, we arrived home feeling so good. We would go back to Vietnam in a flash. Our only concern is that we do not think that we could ever find a trip that would come close to equaling the BikeHike trip...maybe we will just have to book the same trip again!

Anh was fabulous, knowledgeable, and had a fine sense of humour. Whether we were in a museum, biking the countryside, or walking the streets and hills, he had good answers for all our questions. The fact that he loves his country, shines in the manner of his showing and telling of it. He was a pleasure, and is a 'real keeper.'
