The short but strenuous hike to the top of Ngu Lam peak brings views over the surrounding jungle. The challenging 9km hiking trail through the park (starting just north of the park entrance) to the village of Viet Hai is best done with a guide ). Lunch and homestays are available in Viet Hai. From here you can walk, rent a bicycle or take an electric vehicle for 5km to the pier, where taxi boats shuttle back to Ben Beo Pier  near Cat Ba Town until 4pm. Take proper hiking shoes, a raincoat and a generous supply of water for the Viet Hai hike. This is not an easy walk, please contact us for more informations

Of the mammals present in the park, the more commonly seen include macaques, deers, civets and several species of squirrel, including the giant black squirrel. Seventy bird species have been spotted here, including hawks, hornbills and cuckoos.

It’s hard to escape the beaten path in Halong Bay but you can do it on this guided trek through Cat Ba National Park. Look out for deer, snakes, native cats, squirrels, and just possibly the endangered langur as you hike to Frog Lake. Savor a home-cooked lunch at Viet Hai village before visiting Lan Ha Bay and a floating fishing village. Tour includes door-to-door round-trip transportation.

Tripadvisor reviews

“Best Way–BY FAR–To Visit Halong Bay!”

After considering other ways to see and experience Halong Bay, we chose Blue Swimmer for a more intimate and customized experience. And boy were we glad. Instead of the huge, steamer style boats carrying lots of people and featuring 30 minutes of kayaking, we had a grand wooden boat all to ourselves–with a great guide, Thang, a solid captain and a very good cook. We could kayak all we wanted. And instead of the more crowded Halong Bay, we focused on Bai Tu Long. From our first email, Mr Kevin was terrific to deal with. We had a kind of complicated timeline, which he worked with–even arranging transport to Haiphong from the Hanoi airport, and having someone meet us at the hydrofoil dock with prepaid tickets. Everything went smoothly from beginning to end. The kayaking was good. Everybody loved jumping off the top deck to swim. And the food was terrific–and plentiful. The boat was very spacious, with two bedrooms for the four of us, each with its own bathroom including shower. There was also a living area for eating. But we spent most of our time in the four lounges on the main deck, watching the karst islands go by, looking at the floating villages, and enjoying the changing scenery. We are experienced kayakers, so doing a fair amount of paddling was important to us. Especially on the second day, we got plenty. And the boats were in fine shape. Most important, as we cruised by the other, crowded boats, we said to ourselves over and over: ” Sure glad we chose Blue Swimmer.”
