Itinerary and map

Explore at your own pace

A trip to Vietnam is much more than just a change of scenery: its ways of life seem frozen in time. It reveals its secrets so slowly that we have reserved three full weeks for you to explore this magnificent and hospitable country. In the north, on the borders of China and Laos, the beauty of the gentle green mountains and long bamboo hedges is rivalled by the endless rice fields that carpet the depths of valleys. In the centre of the country, the terrain becomes less rugged but noble cities take centre stage: imperial Hué, colonial Hanoi, delightful Hoi An . . . Not to mention the limestone marvels of Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Vietnam by bicycle? A languorous, endlessly fascinating trip.
 

The package includes:
- round-trip air transportation for passenger and bicycle with Air Canada and Vietnam Airlines, as well as transfer between airport and hotel;
- 17 nights in two- to four-star hotels (double occupancy), 1 night in train and 1 night on a boat, in a cabin;
- 17 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 9 evening meals;
- domestic flights from Hanoi to Hoi An and from Da Nang to Hanoi;
- bus, train, ferry transfers;
- baggage transportation (one bag per person, 20-kg maximum);
- mechanical assistance and access to a relief vehicle;
- daily route plans;
- taxes and the $1 contribution per $1,000 of services purchased to the Compensation Fund for Customers of Travel Agents.
Equipment (e.g., bicycle) is not included.
