NORTH VIETNAM ETHNIC TRAILS

9 Days / 8 Nights
18 to 26 September 2016 & 14 to 22 May 2017

This tour takes place twice a year. We hold the first tour during the season of rice-transplatation, when rice terraces fill up with water, allowing young sprouts to show off their fluorescent green colors. The second tour follows the harvesting season, when the rice fields display their golden colors.

During these two crucial periods of the rice cycle, cultivators spend their whole day working the fields, to the photographer’s delight… When we’ll be out of the rice fields, it will be to explore the various villages and markets of the region.

HA GIANG, THE ROOF OF VIETNAM

9 Days / 8 Nights
5 to 13 September 2016 & 22 to 30 May 2017

Closed to foreigners for a long time, the faraway province of Ha Giang remains on the sideline of traditional tourist trails. It offers a diversified palette of landscapes and a pretty mosaic of ethnic groups, barely influenced by the turmoil and development of modern life. From the spectacular rice terraces of Hoang Su Phi and its various local tribes, to the breathtaking karst landscape of Dong Van and its White Hmong populated villages, we invite you to a fabulous photographic adventure to the limits of the northern mountainous region of Vietnam.

We organize this tour twice a year, during the rice transplantation season and the harvest season, a period during which the ethnic groups spend most of their days in the fields, to the photographer’s great delight.

We conduct this tour only once a year, in May. This time offers the best climate throughout the 3 regions, South, Centre and North Vietnam, with the added bonus of rice harvest in the center and rice transplanting in the northern mountains, offering animated rice field landscapes, to the photographer’s great delight.
