Where to Try Extreme Sports in Vietnam

All the extreme sports you could think of are available in Vietnam. Parachuting, kayaking, scuba diving, and more are things you can now check on your bucket list. Here are some destinations that will offer you fascinating sights and satisfy your thirst for thrill and excitement.

Nha Trang

Home to the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam, Nha Trang has a variety of extreme sports you can look into.

Scuba diving: prepare to witness ocean life under thousands of feet. Swimming around with colorful fish and watching the magical coral reef will be an unforgettable experience. Don’t worry about the risks; a diving expert will always escort you everywhere you dive. The cost ranges from VND 450,000 – VND 700,000 per person including the diving suit, snorkel, breathing apparatus, and transportation to the diving spots.

Jet ski: Just like a combination of riding a motorbike and surfing on the waves, jet ski brings you a breath of fresh air literally. With a 70 – 80 km/h velocity, these jet ski engines will make you feel like you are flying on the water’s surface. The cost is estimated at VND 450,000 – VND 800,000.

Skyboard: Extreme sports in Vietnam are not for those scared of heights. The flyboard (or hoverboard) uses high water pressure to push you up in the air. You can either choose to do this alone or with a coach. With a height of up to 10 meters in the middle of the air, Skyboarding in Nha Trang guarantees to pump your adrenaline rush. However, you’ll need an hour or more with a coach to practice the sports before doing it. But when you’re ready, show the world your incredible stunts. The cost might be a little expensive from VND 800,000 – VND 1,200,000.

Ha Long Bay

Kayaking: Kayaking in Ha Long Bay is a much more gentle experience but still one of the must-try extreme sports in Vietnam. Use the paddles to take your kayak anywhere you want. Because the water is still, you don’t need to be experienced to paddle. You can paddle and surf through the pristine water to explore the mysterious caves and take the most panoramic photos.


As one of Vietnam’s ancient cities, Hue is the most unlikely yet thrilling place to try extreme sports, namely Ziplining and Highwire.

Highwire: With the cable system above the wildest forests, Zipline will sweep you off your feet. In this sport, you’ll have to overcome your fear to conquer the obstacles along the way with a height of 6 meters. There are 3 courses you can choose from: the Discovery course and the Adventure course. The Discovery course is suitable for a family trip, and the height is only 1,1 meters. However, with the Adventure course, you need to bring your A-game to get to the finish line, which comes with many formidable challenges such as walking on wooden planks, crossing the net bridge, and keeping balance on wooden blocks and bridges. So where is the extreme? Yes, you’ll be doing this up to 6 meters above the ground, and there’s no going back.

Zipline: Ever want to be Tarzan swinging from one tree to another in the jungle? Well, this sport is even cooler than that. You’ll start atop the mountain, sliding down with the cable wire at a dizzy height. Dangling in the air, you’ll witness the beauty of mountains and forests here with a bird’s eye view. The ticket for these two extreme sports in Vietnam costs only about VND 120,000 – VND 180,000 per person.
