Sapa Adventure Trekking Tour

 
 

We have a range of trekking tours available for you to choose from that have been specifically designed to enable you to experience some of the very best landscape and scenery that Vietnam has to offer. During the treks you will have the opportunity to sleep in bamboo huts in an ethnic minority village or under the stars in a tent or in a local family house.
Most of our treks start with a drive to take us out of town to where the real adventure starts. Your English speaking, Vietnamese guide will be able to answer questions about the countryside as well as local ethnic minority cultures and customs. During the treks you will only have to carry a small daypack with your personal belongings and of course your camera. Porters from the Black H'Mong ethnic minority hill tribe will carry the rest of your luggage in special watertight bags.
