TREKKING FAQs

I’VE NEVER TREKKED BEFORE. IS THIS A GOOD OPTION FOR ME?

Maybe. Our treks are rugged, including sections of scrambling, and many people find them quite difficult. You are, after all, following goat trails in a Vietnamese limestone jungle.

CAN WE TAKE OUR KIDS TREKKING?

No. Although our treks are strenuous (although rewarding) for adults, we trek on goat paths that require some amount of scrambling on sharp rock and are not suitable for children.

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO GET ON THE BACK OF A MOTORBIKE?

Don’t worry! We’ll call a taxi to pick you up.

WILL MY TREK GO INTO THE  NATIONAL PARK?

Since we prefer to stay in a less-traveled area of Cat Ba Island, we do not normally run treks in the national park. If you are interested in trekking in the national park specifically, contact us and we can customize a trip for you.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Sturdy, close-toed shoes. Long pants may be helpful to protect against insects.
