Luscious green rice terraces in Sapa Vietnam

Make Sapa your hiking headquarters

Sapa is the lively traveller hub of the Vietnamese highlands. The authentic atmosphere is well known, but it’s still a great place to spend a few nights and the scenery is just staggering. Our Sapa: Train and Trekking trip uses Sapa as your base, you can enjoy our private trek, setting your own pace, through the hills and valleys, packed with panoramas at every turn. En route, you’ll come across several minority hill tribes, crisp mountain waterfalls and more tiered rice terraces than you can shake a stick at.

Stay at home with the locals

If you’re itching to escape the traveller hoards, we have another trip where you can visit the Hill Tribes of Sapa on a 10km hike over bamboo bridges and mountain streams. It’s energising, eye-opening and the very best way to get close to the local community. Leaving Sapa behind, you’ll be in for a far more rustic, real and remote experience. The trek is more challenging, but the backdrop is breathtaking and the trade off is totally worth it. It’s a heart-warming hike for adventurous spirits.

Ramble through the rainforest on Phu Quoc Island

Phu Quoc Island is a tropical hideaway stranded in the waters south of Ho Chi Minh City. It’s barefoot bliss, with untamed sandy beaches and natural springs, swaying palms and clear waters. Almost 70% of the island is designated national park, and the jungle-clad interior is great trekking territory. Here, you can hike through the mountainous rainforest, stumble upon natural springs and stop for refreshing dips as you go.
