With its perennial cool weather, pine-clad valleys and weathered but elegant French hilltop villas, Dalat is Vietnam’s premier hill station.

The cool climate, clean air and escape from the heat and congestion of Saigon provide a perfect destination for couples seeking romance. At an altitude about 1,500, the cool, hilly terrain is fantastic for mountain biking, trekking, canyoning, kayaking, rappelling and rock climbing. Trips cater to everyone from the inexperienced beginner, to the experienced pro looking for a challenge.

Sample adventure activities (*) Contact our travel consultants for more details and booking.
Langbian Conquest / Trekking / 1 day
Enjoy breathtaking views from Langbian’s three peaks (2169 m top summit). Expect to be on your feet for 5 hours of medium-paced hiking. Visit the Lat village if desired.
Jungle Spondee / Trekking / 2 days
Trek the first day down from Dalat to Tuyen Lam Lake.  The trail is moderate on the first day and goes over Pinhatt Mountain through pine forest and ends at a campsite on the shore of the lake.  The second day puts you in the jungle for the whole day as you trek further south.  This moderate trek involves about 4 to 5 hours of hiking each day.
Canyoning / 1 day
Are you an adrenalin junkie?  Do you love the water? If so this adventure is for you! Professionally trained guides will show you the ropes and prepare you for the journey down the waterfalls. No previous experience necessary for this action-packed day of rappelling, swimming, and sliding down the falls!
Skid Tracks / Biking / 1 day
This ride probably offers the best sampling of single track downhill riding in the Dalat area.  The total ride distance is about 30 kilometers and it is the easiest of our rides.  Views are outstanding throughout with beautiful pine forested hills, Dankia Lake and picturesque small farms dotting the valleys you ride through.

Departing Dalat, we can head further to Ban Me Thuot (180km away) in the central highlands, or over to the beaches of Nhatrang (150km) or Muine (200km).

Buon Ma Thuot is the largest city in Vietnam’s Central Highlands region, an unexplored area with great adventure and trekking potential. We can see wild nature, meet hospitable residents, visit villages of the M'Nong ethnic people, ride an elephant along Lak Lake, explore the forest, enjoy a gong show and drink wine through pipes together with other people.

230km from Ban Me Thuot, Kon Tum makes a good overnight stop for those heading to Hoian Ancient Town. Kon Tum is famous for its exotic wild nature and ethnic villages of Bahnar, J'rai, Sedang group where visitors will see the beautiful wooden stilt houses and the staircase leading to a house is made of a tree trunk.
