We leave Hanoi and, as we head north, with the Hong Son Lake on our side, we enjoy the magnificent scenery with the beautiful complex of tiny islands, somewhat lost in between the surrounding forests, and limestone mountain peaks that make an idyllic picture-worthy spot. We continue our trip to the north and ride on a smooth road, meeting more charming landscapes on our way. In the afternoon, we arrive at Mai Chau, where we have some time to wander and see more of the city, just before dinnertime. After dinner, we can see firsthand a traditional Thai Dance show, until it is time to go to sleep.
We’ll spend the night in Thai stilt houses.

A local ferry ride will take you to the other side of the river, revealing breathtaking mountain ranges on your right and the tranquil river on your left. After a brief pit stop in Bac Yen for a quick meal, your adventure continues along the untamed riverbank as you head north. Your day culminates with a restful night in a cozy Phu Yen hotel, setting the stage for more exciting experiences to come.

Sapa town, a popular highland tourist destination, is definitely worth a visit. One must-see spot is the Sapa Stone Church, an iconic structure built during the French colonial era. It serves as a spiritual landmark and offers a picturesque backdrop for memorable photos. Additionally, the church attracts diverse ethnic minority communities who gather daily for trade and cultural exchanges, highlighting the vibrant local culture.

After a hearty breakfast, our day of exploration in Sapa begins with the roar of motorcycles echoing through the morning air. Setting off on the off-road adventure, we wind through charming villages and navigate untamed trails, the rhythmic hum of engines blending seamlessly with the natural symphony of the highlands. Crossing poetic streams, we delve into the heart of Sapa's rugged beauty, where emerald rice terraces and ethnic minority villages come alive with authenticity.

Motorbike Motorbike

We finish our breakfast Before we continue on our Vietnam motorbike tours and head down to the center of the Lao Cai province, found next to the borders with China. It is an important place where trade in the North occurs, so we stop for a few here, before we ride to the town of Bac Ha. Bac Ha is popular for its 100-year-old colorful market of the Dzao and Flower H’Mong, among other mountainous ethnic groups. The market is open only on Sunday mornings. We’ll ride a small trail up with stunning scenery that leads us to Ximan, up north, and then continue our ride through a forest flushed with green land. We stop for a while at the Lao Chai village on the mountaintops and are drawn into the enchanting overview of the Chay River that seems as if it goes all the way up in the sky and through the clouds. The area has many tracks that we find more than interesting and inviting, which, combined with the amazing natural landscapes, certainly justify its name as one of the most beautiful spots in Vietnam. We’ll spend the night in a hotel.

Day 7: (28th Sept) XI MAN – PROVINCIAL CAPITAL HA GIANG (B/L/D)
Motorbike Motorbike

When we finish eating our breakfast at a local restaurant nearby, we visit the local market, buy souvenirs, take pictures, and mix with the local ethnic minorities (Dzao, Flower H’mong, Nung, etc). Today, we will be testing (and sharpening) our riding skills as the roads that go through the mountain passes are challenging! Lunchtime finds us in Tan Quang, while the last 50 km to Ha Giang are far more relaxing and easy, as we rejoin Road 2. Depending on the time, we may even manage to enjoy and relax in the hot springs of Thanh Ha. We’ll spend the night in a hotel.

Day 8: (29th Sept) HA GIANG – DONG VAN (150KM/APPROX. 6 HOURS) (B/L/D)
Motorbike Motorbike
First thing is to obtain a visit permit from the Ha Giang immigration office, so we can continue our trip to Quang Ba, Dong Van, and Yen Minh regions. They are areas with amazing natural landscape and views of unspoiled surroundings. People living here are used to working hard and long hours, and they always find a way out of problems of any sort, judging by the fact that they have managed to live on rocky farmlands. They are very outgoing and friendly people that do not seek much in life to be happy.
We’ll have a quick break at an info coffee shop, and we could climb up some stairs, to get idyllic views of Quang Ba. We have lunch at Yen Minh, and then visit Pho Bang that was built hundreds of years ago and is home to multi-storey clay brick houses with tiled roofs. While in Quang Ba, we can also visit the Vuong Palace, where the high-rank H’mong family of Vietnam’s purported H’mong King (Vuong Chi Sinh) used to live during the French colonial ruling. It is a fine demonstrator of European-Chinese architecture and is a pole of attraction to all architecturally-minded visitors. Our last stop is at Dong Van, where we sleep overnight. We’ll spend the night in a hotel.
Day 9: (30th Sept) DONG VAN – MEO VAC TOWN – BAO LAC (120KM/APPROX. 4 HOURS) (B/L/D)
Motorbike Motorbike

Today we head over the Ma Pi Leng Pass, where we can be carried away by the magnificent landscape overlooking the Nho Que River. Then, we ride down to Meo Vac, and go past the high mountainous mythical regions of Ha Giang, before we reach Bao Lac, where we stop for the day. Bao Lac is considered a great ethnic crossroad where ethnic groups of all Northeast Vietnam meet. The Sunday market is a great meeting point for many ethnic groups from both sides of the borders. We’ll spend the night in a hotel.

Day 10: (1st Oct) BAO LAC  - BA BE LAKE (180KM/ APPROX. 5 HOURS) (B/L/D)
Motorbike Motorbike
Today's adventure takes us on a thrilling blend of rugged terrain, with stretches of broken road and off-road challenges. We'll navigate river crossings and conquer several mountain passes, continuously testing our riding skills along meandering routes. Don't worry; we'll make plenty of stops to take in the stunning scenery and refuel. In total, expect about 6 hours of riding, inclusive of breaks for meals and refreshments.
After this exhilarating day, we reward ourselves with a serene boat trip around Ba Be Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Vietnam. Here, we can swim, relax, and revel in the natural beauty. Our journey continues to Ba Be Lake View Homestay, where we'll savor a dinner of traditional Tay cuisine, complete with rice wine (often known as 'happy water'). The night's accommodations are in traditional stilt houses, offering an authentic and immersive experience.
Day 11: (2nd Oct) BA BE – HANOI (220KM/APPROX. 7 HOURS) (B/L)
Motorbike Motorbike

On the last day with Vietnam motorbike tours, we have to start earlier than other days for the long riding from Northeast Vietnam back to Hanoi. It will be challenging but what nature can offer to you on the way is worth every hour you spend on riding. We will reach Ha Noi before the rush hour, roughly 4 pm and finish the motorcycle tour in North Vietnam, specially tailored by the Vietnam Motorbike Tour team.
