Visit the rural Sapa region filled with postcard-perfect terraced rice paddies.

Rice is great with curry and soy sauce, but it’s not only a delicious food. The traditional ways people grow it are also beautiful to behold, and nowhere is it more stunning than in Sapa, Vietnam. Ostentatiously gorgeous mountains drop down into deep, river-run valleys. Glistening, terraced paddies consume your entire field of vision. And waves of clouds gently shroud lovely little villages. When you take this trip, you trek through the postcard-perfect rice paddies with a guide and move in with the locals for a night in a traditional homestay. It’s the perfect accompaniment to your saucy Vietnam adventure!

We spend 4 days exploring Vietnam. We visit Hanoi, Sapa Valley.

Day 1: Hanoi to Sapa

The adventure’s about to kick off under the glow of Hanoi’s city lights! You’ll get picked up this evening from your accommodation for the short transfer to the Hanoi train station. Board your sleeper train and begin the overnight journey to the eclectic frontier township of Sapa, safe in the knowledge that your local guide will be waiting for you at Lao Cai train station in Sapa. Kick back and relax as you head north through the scenic Vietnamese countryside and let the hum and clack of the train tracks lull you to sleep.

Day 2: Sapa (Lao Chai Ta Van Villages)

As day breaks we arrive at the station, and you’ll meet with your local guide before heading off for breakfast in Sapa. After you’ve filled your belly, your guide will lead you on an epic trek through the mountainous region. You’ll get to explore lush valleys and visit the local villages, and even get a tasty included lunch. Sapa is home to mostly ethnic minority peoples and as such features a unique depth of culture, reflected on the surrounding landscapes. In the evening you head to Ta Van village to meet our hosts and enjoy a night in a local homestay, including a delicious traditional dinner!

Day 3: Sapa (overnight train to Hanoi)

It’s your last day in this gem of a destination! Recharge your batteries before embarking for an expedition into the surrounding wilderness. Get lost in the natural splendour of Vietnam on this adventurous route through the jungle and its towering bamboo forests as you make your way over rickety bridges to discover majestic cascading falls. Enjoy lunch in this green paradise and breathe in the wild scenery. In the late afternoon you arrive in the village of Supan to catch a bus back to Sapa for a delicious dinner before heading to the train station to catch an overnight train back Hanoi.
