Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Arriving into Hanoi you will be met and taken to your hotel, with the rest of the day at leisure to relax after your flight.

  • This morning transfer to the picturesque town of Mai Chau — this is where you will start to lose the regular tourist trail.

  • Take a full day cycling tour today among the limestone cliff faces and beautiful countryside, interacting with the local communities.

  • Today you will take the drive over the border into Laos. Your Laos guide and driver will be waiting for you at the border to take you onto Vieng Xai.

  • Explore the Vieng Xai caves today. So much history surrounds these caves involving the Indochine war, making it an interesting visit.

  • This morning you will take the drive through the mountainous Nam Et-Phou Louey National Protected Area. Spend the night in your tented ecolodge, cruising down the river spotting many rare endangered species.

  • Rise early to finish your Nam Nern safari experience taking a trek through the jungle with your guide. After lunch with the locals take the four-hour journey to the sleepy town of Nong Khiaw.

  • This morning you will experience the 100 Waterfalls Trek. It can be tough in parts but the scenery you will take in will make the whole trek worth the exertion.

  • Transfer to Luang Prabang today by boat, passing through luscious green mountains and jungle stopping at the Pak Ou Caves on the way. On arrival you will be taken to your hotel where you will have the rest of the day at leisure.

  • Well deserved day at leisure.

  • Today you will have an E-bike tour of Luang Prabang with your guide stopping at various points of interest, including the interesting temples outside the town.

  • Transfer to the airport this morning for your onward flight.
