We will meet you at the reception of your hotel and set off to the ancient capital of Vietnam - Ninh Binh. The journey will take us about 2.5 hours. We will then start our boat adventure. The friendly local rowers will take us through the captivating cave systems with a line-up of world-famous sights: Dark Cave, Bright Cave, and Moonshine Cave. The surrounding landscape will change like in a kaleidoscope. With all the surrounding karst mountains and hidden temples, allow yourself to get lost in the dreamy scenery. If you pay attention, you’ll spot the variety of the local fauna, such as the goats jumping on the rocky mountains.


After the boat excursion, we will go to our favorite restaurant for lunch. This is your perfect opportunity to get a taste of Northern Vietnam specialties. Have you ever tried goat meat? We will treat you to a lunch including Vietnamese dishes made with this delicacy.

Now we will head to Mua Cave by... bicycles! Enjoy a relaxing drive along the country roads surrounded by endless rice fields and majestic karst mountains. Feel the divine atmosphere of the Vietnamese countryside come alive as mountain goats sprint across our paths, adding a note of livelihood to the peaceful landscape. Here, let go of your worries, unleash your senses, and soak in the sights, sounds, and scents of pristine nature.

As we arrive at our destination, we will take a hike of 486 steps to the top of a mountain. From there we will enjoy the iconic panorama of the entire area – one of the most Instagrammable spots in Vietnam.

Here, we will wrap up our wonderful escapade to this wonderland and return to Hanoi.
