Day 1: Into the mountains
Hanoi – Topas Riverside Lodge, Sapa
You will be picked up and depart Hanoi on the Topas Mountain Express for a journey up to the hills. Be sure to have your running gear ready, as you will stop short of your accommodation for the night and complete the final leg of the journey by running!
This first run is around 11km and includes sections of trail and easier narrow paths through rice terraces and ethnic minority villages.
If this run isn’t long enough for you, we can add on some extra no problem – simply ask your guide!
On arrival to the lodge you can enjoy a well earned snack and perhaps a dip in the natural pools or a drink on the veranda overlooking the water.
If you would like a tour of the village or to go foraging for herbs and plants for a traditional bath with one of your Red Dao minority hosts, just ask and we will make it happen.
A traditional Vietnamese dinner will then be served before you enjoy a sound sleep in the comfy lodge beds.
Meals: Lunch and Dinner
Day 2: Run high up to Topas Ecolodge
Nam Cang Village – Topas Ecolodge, Sapa
After a great early breakfast it will be time for a short transfer down to the trail head. Today you will run through remote mountain scenery that very, very few people ever see. After an initial down hill section you will face your climbing challenge, winding up the mountain side to finally reach your mountain top destination: Topas Ecolodge.
There can be few better places to finish a mountain run as the lodge has infinity pools and even an attach jacuzzi looking over the valleys for you to rest your tired body in!
After relaxing, perhaps book in at the Rice Spa, or simply enjoy the peace before dinner at the stilt house restaurant.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Day 3: Fairwell run
Topas Ecolodge – Hanoi
Today you can enjoy the excellent buffet breakfast at the lodge. After digesting your meal, you have the option of a 12km loop on small trails through rice terraces, across small streams, and via a few pretty minority villages, or simply enjoying the grounds and pools of the Topas Ecolodge. You can let us know in the morning what you decide.
After lunch the Topas Mountain Express will be ready to take you back to Hanoi. Or, if you wish to add on extra travel within Vietnam, simply talk to one of our friendly travel advisors and we will create the right itinerary for you.
