Sapa Mountain Retreat

3 nights from €569 per person

Overview

In the far north of Vietnam, close to the Chinese border you will find the mountain town of Sapa. Once a French military outpost, it’s has become a popular base for trekking or cycling as the town overlooks a verdant valley of spectacular rice terraces and the surrounding country-side is home to welcoming minority Hill tribes, such as the Hmong, Tay and Dao.

On this tour a private driver guide will transport you from Hanoi, through breathtaking scenery and you will spend three nights staying in Sapa at the Victoria Sapa Resort and Spa.

The very best time to visit the area and benefit from its scenic views is from April to September with mild, clear days, before the rainy season starts.

Top Tip: If you can organise your trip north so that you are here on a Sunday, your private tour can be adjusted to visit the Bac Ha Sunday market, which is a photographers dream. The very colourful ‘Flower Hmong’ hill tribe travel here from faraway villages to socialise and trade dressed in their finest outfits. Local farmers display their produce alongside traditional fabrics, livestock and handicrafts (LT).
