We are Vietnam's premier rock climbing and adventure destination, providing high quality, safe and memorable trips every day of the year!

We are proud of our strong reputation and always aim to provide our guests with their best experience in Vietnam. We're told that we often succeed and we aim to build on this year to year. You're experience is the core of what we do!

We run daily trips rock climbing over emerald waters in Lan Ha Bay, on paradise islands and beaches; kayaking in the safety of a trained guide through tunnels, arches and lagoons exploring the hidden areas of the bay most visitors miss. Plus there are the truly unforgettable overnight stays on a boat in the bay. We're the one stop shop for what you come to Ha Long Bay to see.

We now offer stand up paddleboarding too - a unique experience and a new skill you can take away with you.

There lots more too! Check us out and give us a try. You won't regret it!

We booked two adventures with Asia Outdoors. We made no plans before arriving on Cat Ba Island, but we walked into the Asia Outdoors office and asked for information. Travis filled us in on everything — the climbing areas, how to get there, where to stay in town, where to eat, the different trips available with Asia Outdoors, and even... More

Really can't complain with this tour. The company will take care of everything for you. We did a full day kayak tour around the Karst landscape. Beautiful stuff! Thanks to Marc for being a awesome chill guy.

Our guide, Morgan, was very nice, professional and super fun. We had also two other guides, Jenny and Tom who were very friendly and helpful as well. The food on... More

Did the dws tour with kayaking after, but had 7 other people on it, so had few opportunities to climb. Great guides though, shout out to Arjun and Mayu. Rental for climbing gear a tad expensive.

There's a reason these guys are number 1 and it's their crew. Can't say enough about the guides and their execution of the trips I went on: Easy full day kayaking with lots of laughs and a much more exhilarating half day of deep water soloing. Shout out in particular to Arjan (who lost skin for us!), Tom, Matthias and... More

Me, my partner and our 6 year old daughter did a private top rope course with Arjan and Travis. These guys are really fantastic (with kids) and really know what they are doing. We did learn quiet a lot in one day, and most important, they were even able to integrate our daughter actively into the course and adapted the... More

We had the pleasure of exploring the beautiful Lan Ha Bay by kayak, which is definitely the way to see it. Being the off season we had the whole bay to just our group for most of the day and it was really beautiful. We had some fantastic guides with us (Mark from Barcelona and Monty.....though may have been Melville)... More

Had a great day climbing and kayaking with Asia outdoor. Our guides Maiju, Tom, Franklin, Mathias, Arjan, Zackari, and Kyle where just great! The perfect activity for exploring the bay, would definitely recommend it! So happy we decided to do this instead of going on a regular boat trip!
