Discover Vietnam on foot
Discover the real Vietnam on foot, trekking through mist-swirled mountains to hill tribe villages and staying at home with the locals. Wander through plunging valleys flanked by tumbling rice terraces and explore the jungle-thick interior of tropical emerald islands. If you’re happiest when you’re hiking, Vietnam will be a great destination for you.
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 Railways and Rice Fields of Sapa trip uses Sapa as your base, from where 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.
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.
