We don’t believe in fixed itineraries or over planed programs. Our private treks give you the freedom to arrange your visit just as you want it. Together with your guide you plan your trek. You don’t have to know much about the area, your guide will give you suggestions and you plan your trek together, depending on the weather and your wishes.
A normal day trek would start at 9am in the morning. We come and meet you at your hotel and together we plan how you want to spend your day. It's your private trek and we will try our best to arrange it after your wishes.
Most trails goes down the valley. We will walk on the edges of the rice fields, pass over the river, through bamboo forest and visit some villages. If you are coming in the summer, bring swimming clothes and ask us to take you swimming!
At the end of the trek, you will go by motorbike-taxi or car back to Sapa. If you want, you can also walk the way back along the main road. The treks normally end at 3pm.
After trekking down hill over the day we either stop at a local restaurant for lunch or we can prepare food in a Hmong house (just ask when you are making your booking or tell your guide when your trek starts!).
We also arrange two, three, and some four day treks with home stays, these are a great way to see the beautiful Sapa Valley and get further from the city. Homestays are a type of inn which is normally run by Giay families down in the valley. When you choose to stay the night at a homestay you wake up already in the valley, which enables you to explore more of the scenery. The guests shears one big loft room, on the second floor in a traditional house. The host and their family stay in a separate part of the house. There are no private bedrooms in the homestays. There are hot showers, western standard toilets, beds and tasty traditional food. The homestays are clean and safe.
Stay over night in a local house
We can also sometimes arrange for you to stay in the home of your guides or with a family member. In these cases there are often no modern "Western" amenities such as hot water/electricity/wifi, etc. Please ask us when you are booking your trek and we will see if we can arrange for you.
If you want, we can also do day tours to some of the bigger markets in the area; Coc Ly market on Tuesdays, Can Cao market on Saturdays and Bac Ha market on Sundays.
