Ninh Binh province is famous for day trippers from the capital of Hanoi, and there are now high end properties which can satisfy even the most sophisticated travelers. This luxe adventure in Ninh Binh has been designed for you to discover the best that Ninh Binh has to offer by bike. 

Your trip kicks off in Hanoi, and two hour drive will take you to the rural town of Ninh Binh in North Vietnam.  Located in one of the most beautiful parts of Vietnam, it is home to dramatic scenery, historical relics, religious pilgrimage sites and endangered animal sanctuaries. Just 100 km south of Hanoi, Ninh Binh is a province of astounding natural beauty with limestone peaks whose splendor is often said to surpass that of Halong Bay. It is even often referred to as “Halong Bay on land.”

You will discover the charm of Ninh Binh by bike as you visit Van Long Nature Reserve, Cuc Phuong National Park, Bai Dinh Pagoda (the biggest pagoda in Vietnam), Hoa Lu (the ancient capital), Trang An (a new candidate for Natural World Heritage Site listing), Tam Coc and Bich Dong Pagodas, and the famous Phat Diem Cathedral.

Day 1: Hanoi - Van Long - Cuc Phuong National

You will be picked up at 8:00 am at the hotel and leave Hanoi for a two hour drive along Highway One (formerly Mandarin Road).  You will start cycling from Dich Long Bridge and bike on the dyke of Van Long Nature Reserve. You will see caves, green rice fields, limestone peaks and the rural life of the locals.  Your final biking destination of this morning will be your hotel.

In the afternoon (following a short transfer by van to the Cuc Phuong National Park) you will visit the Primates Rescue Center. You will then cycle up hills further into the jungle (18km), which is a challenging ride, but worth it once you find yourself in the middle of the jungle, listening to the musical sound of the local birds.  Next, you will go back to the comfort of your hotel where you will enjoy the spa and dine in style. You will also have the option to take a boat cruise or do absolutely nothing and simply relax before an overnight stay.

Cycling Distance: 30 km

After breakfast at your hotel, you will then cycle to Phat Diem Stone Cathedra (the centre of Vietnamese Catholicism and referred to as the Rome of Vietnam) where you will take a guided tour around the immense 19th century structure. You will also visit a factory where villagers produce handicrafts for the churchgoers. The beauty of today's cycling is that you will ride through typical Vietnamese villages and see wooden bridges, river views, while visiting farmers' homes, where you will get a real impression of the Vietnamese landscape and its people.  You will drive back to Ninh Binh for lunch and at 3 pm we will load your bikes on our van and take you back to Hanoi where you will arrive at around 5 pm.
