Kayaking Halong Bay & Trekking Cat Ba National Park 5 Days/4 Nights

You will find this tour a great combination of kayaking and trekking. Kayaking in the wonderland of karst topography with 3, 000 limestone islets and trekking through the national park with great view of Halong Bay from mountains’ summits. We will paddle amongst islets, visit hidden caves, lagoons, unspoiled beaches, floating fishing village and talk with local fish-man. On Cat Ba Island we will trek through jungle and have a chance to see the panorama of Halong Bay from one of the mountain summits we would conquer during the trek. Before heading back to Hanoi via Hai Phong we would have a half day to relax on the beach of Cat Ba.
