Trekking in Northern Laos
Northern Laos especially presents many great trekking opportunities. Not only is the terrain very mountainous and largely swathed in forest, it is also home to a dazzling array of highly colourful minority tribal people who still pursue the traditional slash and burn (swidden) farming methods, unchanged for a thousand years.
Mekong River Explorer: kayaking & mountain biking
The Mekong Explorer is a sample bike, boat and kayak adventure following the mighty Mekong River from southern Laos into northern Cambodia, including the ancient World heritage site of Wat Phu, the 4,000 Islands, where the Mekong is at it widest, and the Ramsar flooded forests in Cambodia's Stoeung Treng (Stung Treng) Province.
Tree Tent Camping Adventures
Dream of camping in the jungle, but wary of all that creeps and crawls? We have you covered. Snooze suspended in mid air with these exceptional tree tents. Sleeping up to three, the tents are ideal for couples, families, or good friends with a very spacious triple hammock floor.
Mekong River Cruise, Northern Laos
