Commencing your journey in the spiritual capital of Laos, acclimatise to the slow paced life of this beautiful country by exploring the ancient streets of Luang Prabang by bicycle and taking in some of its national treasures including the beautiful temple of Wat Xiengthong. Then head out into the lush countryside where you will have the opportunity to swim in the pools of one of the most picturesque waterfalls in the world, try your hand at rice farming at a local organic farm and bath with elephants in the jungle.

Following the mighty Mekong River southwards, arrive at the majestic limestone karst mountain vistas of Vang Vieng where you will settle into your riverside accommodation before heading out to explore the jungle covered mountains and huge cave systems by foot, bike and kayak.

Continuing to the sleepy capital of Vientiane, enjoy the city sights by local tuk tuk and uncover the secrets of Laotian cuisine with a hands on cooking class before flying down to Laos' undiscovered southern region.

Head out to the stunning Bolaven Plateau and discover this dynamic landscape by vintage jeep on a route rarely, if ever visited by foreigners, exploring ethnic minority villages and staying overnight with a local family on a coffee plantation.

From here, journey deep into the dense southern jungles with an exhilarating couple of days hiking through secret forests, taking breath-taking canopy walkways high in the trees, swimming in waterfalls and zip lining through the jungle tree tops. Your accommodation for the night is an equally awe-inspiring treehouse 10 metres up in the rooftop canopy.

For a scenic end to this incredible adventure, travel to the peaceful island of Don Daeng on the Mekong River. However the excitement doesn't end here. Explore the hidden 4000 islands by boat and mountain bike, cycle winding dirt roads, meet with villagers and share a home-cooked lunch with a local family, before enjoying your final day relaxing by the pool in this serene environment.
