Sapa Trek

Set in the cool mountains of the northwest, Sapa became a favourite amongst the French colonialists seeking to escape the heat of the lowlands. Sapa and the surrounding mountains are home to many ethnic minorities who will provide us with true rural hospitality as we trek through beautiful valleys with cascading rice terraces. Following secluded trails, the panoramic views and scenery will be as memorable as the diversity of the ethnic minorities we encounter. An experience never to be missed in Vietnam is an overnight train journey in our cosy sleeper cabins and exploring the hustle and bustle of the Old Quarter of Hanoi. This promises to be an amazing week of true diversity.
