Trekking Northern Vietnam & Laos

13 Nights: from US$4833 per person (twin share) Trip Code: TNI0001

Travel off the beaten path to trek through Vietnam and Laos' staggering mountainous and jungle scenery. Staying in boutique hotels, eco-lodges, jungle huts and hanging ‘nests', you'll disconnect from modern life to appreciate Southeast Asia's natural environment. Read more >

After a night discovering the labyrinth of streets and hidden communities in Hanoi's Old Quarter, you will leave the city behind to venture into the countryside of northern Vietnam and Laos for a two-week adventure.

Mai Chau and Pu Luong are rarely featured on Vietnam's tourist trail, but they are some of the country's most dramatic and scenic regions. Spend a few days trekking through valleys and rice terraces and sleeping at homestays and charming eco-lodges to immerse yourself in rural Vietnam.

A short drive brings you to the Laos border and onwards to the Vieng Xai caves. These caves sheltered more than 20,000 people, including the country's future leaders, during daily aircraft bombing raids by US forces in the Vietnam War.

Travel through mountain scenery and take a night safari through the Nam Et Phou Louey National Protected Area (NEPL NAP), Laos's largest national park, to seek out wildlife including sambar deer, muntjacs, civets, bears and clouded leopards. Explore the park on a two-day trek through dense jungle, checking camera traps and visiting wildlife observation platforms and salt licks along the way, before sleeping in hanging "nests".

Leaving the NPA behind, travel northwards to the karst mountain scenery of Nong Khiaw to kayak the Nam Ou River and swim in waterfalls, before ending your adventure on the ancient streets of Luang Prabang. Explore this UNESCO World Heritage town, trek and bathe with elephants in the countryside, and enjoy a relaxing sunset cruise on the Mekong - the picture-perfect end to your trekking adventure.
