North East Vietnam & Halong Bay

14 Days Moderate-Advanced 1050 Km

The Red Spokes tour of North East Vietnam offers challenging cycling through a stunning unexplored area rich with cultural and geographical wonders. From Vietnam’s buzzing capital, Hanoi, we journey to the remote undiscovered Ha Giang region. Cycling hilly hairpin bends amongst slopes, ridges, valleys, and limestone karsts the outstanding natural beauty will take your breath away.

Terraced paddy fields and surreal limestone peaks are home to a vibrant, traditional tribal culture. Crops and dwellings seem to cling to the rocky terrain. We encounter Red Dao, Tay, White Hmong, Tay and Lo Lo communities who, until recently, have lived in complete isolation from the outside world. We witness an unchanged way of life, visiting the local markets, and seeing wildlife including water buffalo, pigs and horses.

Our tour ends with a visit to spectacular Halong Bay, the World’s largest marine limestone ‘karst’ landscape. We stay on a wooden junk, modelled on traditional Vietnamese sailing boats. A unique and outstanding seascape featuring thousands of limestone karsts and isles rises out of emerald green seas. The evolution of the Karst in the bay has occurred over 20 million years of tropical climate. Whilst research has shown the presence of prehistoric humans tens of thousands of years ago, most of the islands are uninhabited and rich with numerous species of flora and fauna.
