Overview

We arrange bicycle trips from half day up to 3 day trips. These are led by a local English speaking guide. On all the trips, your luggage will be transported by our supply vehicles or jeep. We provide high quality mountain bikes for all our trips. It is also possible to combine bicycle trips with trekking, walking or market trips. All bicycle trips are carried out on a one to one basis, of you and your guide.

Highlight

This wonderful itinerary takes you over the Tram Tom, or Heaven’s Gate Pass to explore the other side of Fansipan and the Hoang Lien Mountain Range. Often when Sa Pa is shrouded in cloud and fog, this side is clear and blue. The newly paved road descends 26Kms through one of the most picturesque and inspiring valleys in the North where you’ll glide down through the fresh mountain air to the Binh Lu Junction. Turning off this main road will add a moderate challenge to your adventure. The sometimes rocky road meanders along the base of the mountain range past old growth forest and through the villages of Thai, H’mong and Lu ethnic minorities. The area sees few tourists, so expect plenty of curious faces and smiling children shouting ‘Hello!’ as you stop to meet the locals along the way.
