A ride from Hanoi to the Green Heaven

Customize a tour


Broad valleys framed by incredible rolling mountain ridges create the scenic landscape of Bac Son Valley, an impressive and quaint hilly scenery that no one expects being so close to the Vietnamese capital. However, the district definitely evokes that well-known picturesque beauty and majesty typical from the most remote mountainous areas in Northern Vietnam.  

Join us for this memorable ride along the fertile valley’s pathways that will lead us to infinite rice fields, beautiful rivers and genuine rural settings and villages, where we will also be able to experience the warm hospitality of Lang Son’s province people, where Handspan is actually working very close with the surrounding communities to develop together a pretty unusual project.  The Green Heaven has never been that close to Hanoi. Come and see it for yourself. We bring you!


  • The awe-inspiring landscape of Bac Son Valley, within a 2-hour drive from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi.
  • The possibility to choose between an e-bike or a conventional mountain bike for our scenic ride.
  • A traditional local lunch based on the tasty specialties of the area.
  • The chance to immerse ourselves in an authentic rural setting typical from Northern Vietnam and influenced by different ethnic groups like the Tay, Kinh or Nung, among others.  
A ride from Hanoi to the Green Heaven of Bac Son Valley

Day 1 A ride from Hanoi to the Green Heaven of Bac Son Valley

Our guide and driver will pick us up at 7:00 am in our hotel in Hanoi for a 2- 2,30 hour drive to the point where our e-bike journey will get started.  

We will firstly ride to a village where we will be able to enjoy a delicious local lunch. Of course on our way we will have the chance to make some interesting stopovers to take photos, to nose around the local markets that we will find en-route or to responsibly interact with the neighbors that may stare at us curiously, since for the time being, the area does not receive many visitors. Our guide will also help to make the most of our day trip in this regard, so don't be shy and have some chit chat with the locals so that you can check how willing they are to warmly welcome you in their district!

After lunch we will continue with our journey through the stunning hilly scenery of Bac Son Valley, riding through meandering roads, crossing winding rivers that run through fertile fields and being surrounded by the captivating peaks which characterize the scenery of this matchless region.

The ride will end when we reach the highway, where our driver will be awaiting to bring us back to Hanoi, arriving at Handspan office by 6:30 pm.
