Northern Vietnam

Home to both busy Hanoi, and amazing, remote provinces. The northern region offers you breathtaking, mountainous landscapes and valleys. It is the cultural melting pot of ethnic minorities. It is the perfect opportunity to go on an adventure and meet the locals.

Hanoi

The capital of Vietnam, sometimes called "The Paris of the Orient”, Hanoi has this unique and historic atmosphere. Thanks to its cultural monuments, lakes, tree-lined avenues and the old quarter, it is easy to find ways to interact with the local people.

Halong

Located by the sea, this city is famous for its three bays: Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay. Among them, Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is arguably the best-known site. The other two bays are equally beautiful and less touristy, so has recently been chosen by travelers as an alternative to their famous sister. The bays include numerous islands and caves emerging from the emerald waters of the Gulf of Tonkin, creating a mystical and unique beauty. Take a nice junk cruise with one or two nights on the water, and enjoy kayaking, fishing, swimming amidst the limestone beauties.

Ninh Binh

Mystical and tranquil, the valley of Ninh Binh, surrounded by grandiose karst mountains, is the terrestrial equivalent of Halong Bay. Climb the 500 steps of Ngoa Long Mountain or Dragon Mountain. Explore Hoa Lu, the ancient capital of Vietnam. Take a 2 to 3 hour ride in a sampan in Tam Coc or Trang An. In the evening you can recharge your batteries and relax while watching the sunset over these magnificent mountains.

Mai Chau

Located 140km from Hanoi, this beautiful valley is is home to many ethnic groups, including the Dzao, the Muong and the Thai. You could take a bike ride or walk to explore the spectacular lakes, rice fields and small hamlets of this Vietnamese countryside. Visit small, ethnic villages where locals will be glad to welcome you and share a little about their local customs and traditions. Take some time to enjoy the pace of life in the countryside.

Sapa

A former health resort founded in 1922 by the French, it is one of the must-visit places in northern Vietnam. Hike to the top of Mount Fansipan (3,143m ), Vietnam’s highest mountain, also known as the roof of Indochina. Enjoy the grandiose landscapes, mountains, waterfalls and rice terraces. Visit ethnic minority villages. Other places to visit during your trip to Sapa include Ham Rong Flower Garden, Muong Hoa Valley, Silver Waterfall, Love Waterfall, Sapa Market, Stone Church, etc.
