The "Trails Of Vietnam" tour starts from Hanoi and ends in Ho Chi Minh City. It is a kayaking and canoeing tour that takes 14 days taking you through Da Bac, Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An and 4 other destinations in Vietnam. "Trails Of Vietnam" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Whether it's kayaking beneath towering cliffs in the sea, cycling by vibrant green paddy fields in the Mekong Delta or trekking amongst colourful hill tribes, this dynamic trip allows us to interact with the local people and environment in a way we couldn't by vehicle alone. We get a great insight into everyday life as well as seeing all the major sights. Of course, all this activity needs fuelling, which gives us the perfect excuse for sampling the superb Vietnamese cuisine.

A Fascinating trip
“Fast paced trip from north to south Vietnam yet with time to explore the places we stayed in. We slept in a great variety of places from lovely hotels to sleeper train via three great homestays and overnight on a boat and enjoyed the varying sights and tastes of the country as we travelled.”

Excellent introduction to Vietnam. Requires stamina rather than fitness
“Just completed the Trails of Vietnam holiday. Great experience. Very full-on trip which requires stamina rather than fitness. It gives an excellent flavour to Vietnam. Every day is different. The homestays, hotels and restaurants were all well chosen. Here's my video of the trip”

Trails of Vietnam
“Wow, full on Vietnam! This trip was great, if a little rushed at times. You get to see a lot of different areas of Vietnam, from rural villages to chaotic cities. Also many varied experiences such as religious sites, historical sites, walking, cycling, kayaking, boat trips, cooking class, local music and dance shows. Be prepared to be on the go most of the time.”

Amazing insignt into a fabulous country
“This trip was FULL ON. The activity level maybe doesn't reflect the amount of actual physical exercise taken on the trip, but it does reflect the pace. It was completely non-stop from touchdown at Hanoi airport, to hikes and village walks through the hills of the north and absorbing all the culture of Hue and then down to Saigon and the beautiful Mekong Delta. 6am starts and late nights made for a lot of naps required on the bus but to pack this inspiring and amazing country into 16 days was a definite success!”
