Weather

We do hike in the rain, snow, wind and any other weather conditions that nature decides to throw at us. After all, we’re going on adventures! If the weather is unsafe for any reason, the trip will be changed or postponed. You will be notified the week of your trip if there are changes due to weather.

Halong Bay is always a beautiful place to visit no matter what time of the year you travel. Northern Vietnam has four seasons unlike Southern Vietnam which has a wet and a dry season. In Halong Bay summer falls between May and September and you can enjoy sunny days, but due to high humidity there are regular rain showers. Winter is from December to March and temperatures can drop to 12°C. October through to early December is a popular time due to the nice warm weather.
