For many visitors to Vietnam, the trip highlights come when getting off the beaten path and into the country’s remarkable countryside. While there is plenty to see and do in the main cities of Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, the northern part of the country is renowned for its mountainous terrain, and unique peoples, with their own languages and customs. This is excellent trekking country and most tours in Vietnam often touch on the region, with Sapa being the most easily accessible area. Although some also delve much deeper into the region.

However, there are some excellent longer, more in-depth tours too, and we have gathered up a selection of both types, taking into account the itineraries, value for money, and the reviews of previous visitors. Here are five of the best trekking tours available in Vietnam.
