Phong Nha By Kayak

4 Hours

Phong Nha, Quang Binh, Vietnam


Our 4-hour Phong Nha by Kayak experience showcases Phong Nha from the rivers perspective. Your professional English and Vietnamese speaking guide will paddle guest from Chay Lap Riverside along the pristine waters of the Son River all the way to Phong Nha, stopping at a number of villages along the way, including Tram Village and Me Village.

Be captivated by the mountains ranges of the Phong Nha National Park as your kayak winds its way down the river, passing by beautiful rock formations, farmland, and village houses straddling the banks as you get closer to the main town.

You’ll have the chance to jump out of your kayak at various spots to explore by foot, before returning to your kayak to continue the journey into Phong Nha. This is a great trip that won’t take all day but still provides a decent adventure and exploration of the area.

Our tour is only 4-hours and the start time is completely flexible to the guest’s schedule. However, we recommend a morning tour so the tour ends with lunch beside the river in Phong Nha with the guide.
