Mountains & Minority of North Vietnam (7 days, by motobike)

In our catalogue of circuit / walking in Vietnam, we also mention our other strong point: tours by motorbike. Motorbikes are nowadays a very popular means of transport in the city as well as in the countryside. Nevertheless, rare are the visitors who travel by motorbike despite of numerous advantages. Traveling by motorbike allows you to plan and fill in the trip yourself and to discover landscapes inaccessible for any other type of transport. For trekking by 2 wheels we use Minsk, undeniably the best motorbike to ride the mountainous roads. Made in Russia, this motorbike is easy to drive thanks to an extraordinary stability in corners and not less all-terrain than Yamaha ones. Solid with its 125cm3 motor, this vehicle is technically spoken everywhere reparable. Visasie´ s motorbike guides are professionals with an extensive road experience. They play an essential role during the motorized trek, and assist you for driving, translating and repairing all the eventual breakdowns.
