Your day-by-day itinerary

Local children in Northern Vietnam

Day 1

Arrival at Ba Be National Park

You’ll be collected from your hotel in Hanoi by a private driver to begin your journey north. Over the next few hours you’ll pass mountainous rural scenery as you make your way to the national park. Your hosts will be waiting to greet you to your private room in a stilted wooden house on the banks of the lake. The accommodation is fairly basic, but comfortable. After lunch, you’ll take a wooden boat trip out on the lake and visit Dau Dang Waterfall. You’ll return to your homestay in time for dinner, before settling down for the evening.
