We are delighted to now offer guided family Fishing Trips in Vietnam for carp, catfish, Hemibagrus and more.. – is there a better way for a family to spend a day bonding than on the water, some laughs, catching a few fish and enjoying the Vietnamese countryside and it’s array of wildlife?

Day 1 : Hanoi Airport Arrival – Nature Reserve of Van Long – Cuc Phuong Forest Cycling

On arrival after picking your bags up and clearing customs, make your way to arrivals where there will be a Fishing in Vietnam representative waiting to transfer you the short drive to the lake within 2hours.

Or we will pick you up at your hotel in Hanoi if you are already staying here in Hanoi

Escape from bustling Hanoi to the peaceful Van Long natural reserve in Ninh Binh, take a rowing boat to visit this stunning wetland, also a nature reserve of the area

Leave Hanoi for our day trip to Ninh Binh, we arrive at the Nature Reserve of Van Long after two hours drive (90km), we board a bamboo rowboat as soon as we arrive for 1 hour rowing along this beautiful wetland of Van Long, enjoying spectacular scenery surrounded by rice paddies and towering limestone mountain peaks.

then we make a short transfer down a peaceful countryside road to Cuc Phuong Forest

Upon reaching the Forest we will take our bike and transfer to the park center for the night. Have dinner and stay overnight in the simple bungalows there.

We can arrnage a camp-fire with grilled-chicken outdoor if you requested

Day 2 : Fishing Day

This King Carp Lake fishing should really have you fired up now and hopefully having caught loads of big fish already, it can be good to try some different methods to how you have caught already. Sometimes it can be good to go for a supersized Rig to really try and target one of the monsters that live in the lake.

Lunch & Dinner will set up outdoor with nice vietnamese cuisine near the lake

Stay overnight in the simple hotel there.

Day 3: An other fishing day

Today, we move to the Crazy Catfish Lake, where you are available to catch some monster Catfish there. We then walk to an other lake near the Crazy Catfish Lake to spend 1/2 day before take our car drive to Tam Coc River for staying over there.
