Overview | Itinerary

Choose where you sleep

    The intriguing Central Coast Adventure is packed with cultural points of interest and scenic rides. From the historic monuments of Hoi An and Hue to the relaxing beaches of Whale Island, this adventure is a delight for everyone wishing to explore the heart of Vietnam.

    The starting point for this adventure is the old capital of the Ngu Yen Dynasty, in Hue. The cycling starts with a ride through the Vietnamese country side with a challenging climb over Hai Van pass where the paddy fields and eucalyptus forest provide stunning views as we climb away from the coast. Passing rural villages on quiet back roads, the peacefulness of the surroundings are in sharp contrast to our destination of My Lai, the site of one of the worst massacres of the American/Vietnam War. The cycle ride is packed with history, culture, some superb cycling and, ending at the beach, this trip has it all.


    Our biking adventure takes us from Hue to Nha Trang by bus, boat and bike. We cycle a little under 470 kilometres in 8 cycling days. Lots of time on this tour is spent sight seeing and exploring Vietnam. Participants can cycle as much or as little as they like and still enjoy the same views as the rest of the group. There is one long day with a 10 kms climb at the end, and fit and experienced riders usually find it sufficiently challenging. Fast cyclists can ride at their own pace

    Our route is designed to take us off the main roads as much as possible, and we explore scenic back roads. We spend very little time on busy Highway One, cycling only on the quiet and particularly scenic sections instead.

    Support will be supplied by an air-conditioned support bus that travels behind the group at all times.
