Laos Tours

Bordered by China, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, it's easy to understand why Asia's least populated country does not get a much attention, but therein lies its charm. Laos remains one of the least developed countries in Asia, with lush jungles and striking karst river valleys where life remains tranquil and unhurried.

The prize of Laos, if not all of Southeast Asia, is sublime Luang Prabang which should be the primary focus of your travels through the country. If you've a little longer than a couple of days to linger, we can planning sightseeing in the stunning karst landscapes to the north of Luang Prabang, with light trekking, bicycling (road and dirt), and boating on the tranquil Nam Ou River.

In an off-the-beaten-path town, we'll take you that much further out to explore the magnificent landscape of northern Laos beyond the ordinary trip and experience local cultural in unforgettable encounters, all carefully-planned and led by the most experienced and knowledgeable guides in the region.

Our private Laos tours will excite both the adventurous traveler and those seeking a more comfortable, luxurious experience with our ultimate Luang Prabang stopover. We've designed this to be a wonderful few days, balanced between sightseeing on foot, tuk-tuk, and relaxing at the wonderful La Residence Phu Vao or Amantaka resorts.

A private baci welcoming ceremony, time with an endangered Asian elephant at a local camp learning care about the project, a private audience with monks within their temple, and a cooking class round out the unique experience of this special trip highlighting the best of Luang Prabang. Northern Laos also offers spectacular scenery and quiet roads for cycling, an areas we've organized bicycle tours since 2001, but we can blend in short rides to your trip.
