  • Go trekking in Sapa
  • Pass through the endless terraced rice fields
  • Enjoy a cruise on Halong Bay
Discover all the attractions of Northern Vietnam on this 7-day tour!

The first stop is the bustling capital of the country, Hanoi. Exploring the Old Quarter of Hanoi is one of those experiences that will keep you captivated for days. You will very quickly get used to the crazy traffic and just nonchalantly walk across roads without noticing the hurtling motorbikes careening at you.

The tour also takes you trekking in Sapa — likely the most exciting activity of the tour. Here you will get a chance to not only view wonderful spots and terraced rice fields, but also enjoy fresh air and see plenty of the natural beauty and scenery of Vietnam. Admire the waterfalls, go swimming in hot water pools or cold-water streams, and learn about traditional fabric weaving and brocade-making from local communities.

Then enjoy 2 days and 1 night on a stunning cruise on Ha Long Bay. This World Heritage seascape is dotted with jagged limestone pinnacles and is one of Vietnam’s biggest attractions.

You’ll never want to leave!
