About our Weekend Getaways

The Learning Project team have lived in Ha Noi for years, and we love it, but we also love getting away for a few days. Ha Noi, like any big city has its issues; traffic, pollution and  the noise being high on most people's’ list, so why not get away for the weekend?


 Our experience bringing groups into the Vietnamese countryside over the last few years has demonstrated to us just how much people enjoy physical activity in stunning natural surroundings. However, with people leading hectic lives the issues in accessing these areas are always the same; how to get there in the short amount of free time available and how to organise all the accommodation , food and equipment necessary to ensure a good time. With that in mind we have designed a series of Weekend Getaways  that promise to provide a fun and informative activity-based break from the city and that will guarantee great food and accommodation, that will fit into your working week.

What's included

All trips have been designed to ensure the best possible activities, accommodation and food, while keeping prices affordable. There are cheaper trips out there but our focus on taking small groups to amazing locations and staying with people who are genuinely trying to promote sustainable tourism in Vietnam, and who we consider our friends, means we may not be the cheapest but we are 100% certain of the quality of the experience.

Our number one priority is on the Health & Safety of all our clients at all times, and this is why we only work with people we know and trust and who we have built relationships with. All our guides, service providers and hosts take our clients well-being to heart and want to share the beauty of their country with those who are prepared to take the time explore it and who are looking to learn about environment and culture.
