Itinerary

DAY 1: HANOI - HALONG BAY - BAI TU LONG BAY

Depart for Ha long Bay in a private air conditioned vehicle. Transfer to a private boat for a cruise among the 3, 000 spectacular limestone islands that rise from the emerald green waters of Ha Long Bay. Enjoy a fresh seafood lunch on board while the captain heads out for the horizon. Cruise to Quan Lan via the lesser known but equally magnificent Bai Tu Long bay with breathtaking scenery and thousands of limestone outcrops. There will be time to enjoy kayaking. Arrive at Quan Lan late afternoon. Stroll into the main village port Cai Bau. Dinner is served on board.

DAY 2: BAI TU LONG BAY KAYAKING - QUAN LAN ISLAND

After breakfast, explore desolate Quan Lan Island with its stunning deserted sandy beaches. There are many things to do on the island. There are five pristine beaches to discover, the best being Son Ha beach, (7km from the main village Cai Bau), with incredible white sands. Optional cycle on a flat single lane country road to the northern village on the island, Minh Chau. There are also three 7km trekking routes along the spine of the island on a great footpath over the mountains to the South, along a rocky coastline facing the sea, or more gently along a jeep trail on the opposite coast facing inland. In the afternoon sail to nearby Thang Loi Island.

DAY 3: QUAN LAN ISLAND - HALONG BAY - HANOI

After breakfast, cruise to Trong and Trinh Nu caves, Halong bay where we will paddle for three hours among the karst scenery near to the caves.  Then cruise further through the bay stopping to kayak inside Luon cave (if time permits). There, we will paddle through the tunnel and emerge into a crater lake, surrounded by impenetrable cliffs and gliding kites (subject to tidal conditions.) After lunch, cruise back to shore and return to Hanoi. Trip ends.
