Northern Vietnam is a fascinating place, home to the majority of the 53 minority ethnic groups that live in Vietnam. This trip gives you an authentic experience with Muong Au Ta and Dao people as well as a broad overview of the other groups at the Ethnology Museum in Hanoi.

This trip includes a mix of C.A.S activities including working with a community partnership where our support will greatly impact the local community.

While in the localities there will be opportunities for sightseeing, physical activities and historical visits.



  • During the 4 day trip, enjoy life away from the big city in small villages. The local people will teach you their customs, handicrafts, cuisine and dances.
