Overview Itinerary Pricing


Explore fantastic Lao landscapes, culture, and traditions on this unique, private trip to areas around Pakse and Luang Prabang.

You'll visit villages, temples and a stunning countryside of green rice fields, rain forest and mountains. We'll also visit classic tea and coffee plantations, enjoy a Mekong river cruise, and try our hand at local cuisine in a cooking class. You will also ride an elephant through a scenic landscape and visit stunning waterfalls.

This is our favorite itinerary, but we can include Vientiane upon request. Laid-back Laos is a truly refreshing change of pace to some of the busier tourist destinations like Angkor Wat and Bangkok nearby.
