Vietnam Hiking and Trekking Tours 2024/2025

Vietnam is a lesser-known hiking gem in South East Asia, with plenty of trails that take you through the country’s scenic hinterlands, islands, waterfalls and jungles. Trek around the Sapa region, renowned for its golden rice terraces; journey to Cao Bang, where there are many caves and waterfalls to explore; or head to Chua Chan Mountain, a moderately challenging day hike offering panoramic views of Ho Chi Minh City. You can also combine your hiking tour in Vietnam with one of our adventure tours that include caving in the Phong Nha Caves and exploring the many islets and limestone karsts in the iconic Ha Long Bay.

17 Day Vietnam Explorer with Lucas is THE BEST!
5 - Excellent
  • G P
“The Vietnam explorer (17 days) was so good it had in my opinion the right balance of activity and free time. Lucas is the best tour guide! He is so caring, funny and nice always making sure you are okay and having a good time. Even when the storm Noru was coming and we had to change the itinerary Lucas kept saying sorry and worried that we would be upset about it. He always try to make your life easier as he would say 'don't worry you're on holiday!' I was concerned that I would be the oldest in the group but, the group was able to gel really well and became a little family unit who looked out for each other and Lucas always made sure people felt involved and part of the group. The North is definitely my highlight (Hoi An, Nimh Binh, Ha Long Bay)it's so indescribably beautiful and completely different to the south, being more green and cultured. Lucas was always on hand to answer any questions, tell you some interesting facts and make learning about Vietnam fun and interesting. Letting us know what we are doing each day and letting us know what to bring, which is really helpful for us. I love the fact that you see both sides of Vietnam on this trip and even better having the best tour guide ever! It wouldn't have been the same with anyone else. Thank you Lucas!!! Hope to see you again one day!”

Vietnam Hiking Tours

Highlights of Vietnam Hiking Tours

  • Uncover the world’s third-largest cave. Join a hiking tour in Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park and discover the mighty Hang En Cave, complete with a hidden beach to soak those tired feet.
  • Take on Vietnam’s highest peak, Mount Fansipan. If you want the ultimate Vietnam hiking tour experience, taking on the “Roof of Indochina” is a must.
  • Chase waterfalls along the rural Mai Chau on Vietnam hiking tours. In a countryside valley near Hanoi, you can hike to places like the Go Lao Waterfall and the stunning Hoa Binh Lake.
  • Visit the largest reclining Buddha statue in the whole of Southeast Asia. Enjoy the popular Ta Cu Mountain hiking tour and see a global landmark all at the same time.
  • Spot wildlife as you hike in Cat Tien National Park. Here, you can find monkeys, rare birds, elephants, wild boars, and more.
  • Meet local ethnic groups in the mountains while hiking in Vietnam. If you are in the mountain areas, you should take time to meet a variety of communities like the Hmong, Tay, Hani, Lahu, and more, all with their own unique culture and history.

Travel Tips for Hiking in Vietnam

  • Check if you need permits or permissions for certain trails before booking Vietnam hiking tours. Mount Fansipan requires permission from the Hoang Lien Son Range board of management, which costs around 200,000 VND (8 USD) per person.
  • Avoid trekking tours in Vietnam in the summer months, as it can get oppressively hot and humid.
  • Check for public transport availability to the trailhead to ensure you can get to and from your trailhead safely. Public transport in Vietnam is pretty good, but timings can be unreliable.
  • Consider joining a guided hiking tour. This way, you can safely hike around Vietnam while learning about the history and culture of the area from a local expert.
