Trip Description & Day-by-day Itinerary
Bike and Raft from Dalat to Nha Trang is one of our day tours we work with our local partners to bring you different activities in one day. The day trip starts from Dalat and finishes in Nha Trang. Highlights of the day tour include cycling on the way from Da Lat to Nha Trang, river rafting in Nha Trang.
This journey to Nha Trang starts with a 45 minute transfer 25 kilometers to the north east of Dalat on a new road and through the newest national park in Vietnam (Bidoup Nui Ba). It offers fantastic cycling in the highlands as well as down a 28 kilometer pass to the lowlands.
The first section of the ride starts in pine forest and rolls through the hills with beautiful views of farms, countryside and Nui Ba Mountain. There is one final 3 kilometer climb to the top of the pass before some serious downhill. The 28 kilometer, uninterrupted downhill section is the longest section of downhill we offer. And the longest we have been able to find.
After reaching the bottom of the pass we pull over to the side of the river and climb off the bikes and into the inflatable 2 man kayaks, purpose made for the kinds of rapids we encounter on the Cai River. This river forms from the many tributaries flowing out of the mountains we have just ridden down. We float down the river for a half an hour or so before stopping for a picnic lunch break.
After lunch we jump back into the boats and tackle a couple more sections of rapids, enjoy the fantastic scenery, and float our way closer to Nha Trang. At the end of the rafting we climb out of the river and into our vehicle for a short 40 minute ride to the city center. The total riding distance is customizable with about 60 km being the norm. The rafting section is about 10 kilometers.
