We are excited to introduce a revised itinerary 8 days & 7 night itinerary, for our very popular cycle tour in the exotic Mekong Delta.
After a recent exploratory visit we have discovered a host of new "snake-way" trails, narrow local cycling routes that take us through rice fields and into little visited villages. As well as staying at the luxurious Victoria Resort at Can Tho we now spend two nights, in the very beautiful Mekong Lodge on the Mekong River and have added in some intriguing local visits to learn about the lifestyles of the local people.
This tour has scheduled departures but is also available on demand for two or more people at any time of year
This tour caters for all levels of cyclists - the route is nearly all flat so it is suitable for recreational cyclists, combined with our full sag wagon support system. Due to the navigational issues when we cycle on the local trails (with a number of turns and route choices), we will need to ride as a group on most days, however stronger riders have options to ride hard and cover extra distance on some days.
To determine the grade of a particular adventure we consider a number of factors. These include the condition of the terrain, the altitude, the roads and the length of the trip. The Mekong Delta is graded introductory. You will need a reasonable level of fitness and we suggest 30 minutes of aerobic type exercise, (either cycling or jogging) three times a week for the three months leading up to your trip.
