Laos 17 day tour
Description of Laos 17 day tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWith no domestic flights included, travelling from the North to the South by car reduces your carbon footprint. Many of your excursions are enjoyed by foot, electric bicycle, boat or even hot air balloon, meaning that environmental impact has been kept to a minimum, whilst offering the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery and striking history of Laos from a relaxing and personal perspective.
You have a few days at leisure to discover sleepy towns and stunning plains by foot or bicycle, rather than additional touring days by car. Laos is a peaceful country best enjoyed in tranquility with the locals and these days ensure you relax in to the pace of life here.
Our suppliers are focused on improving sustainability and reducing plastic waste. We are working together with them and the local guides to offer refillable water bottles and reduce offers of other single-use items such as wet wipes or straws on a more widespread basis.
PeopleWe strive to use local, family-owned excursion and accommodation providers in country, committing to preservation of their culture and community as well as providing employment opportunities for many local people. On this journey you will travel through the heart of Laos, from North to South, visiting lesser known areas and helping to boost the economy of the local communities by bringing responsible tourism to their villages and national parks. The experience is immersive, adventurous and educational, whilst giving back to those that share their stories with you along the way and enjoying the opportunity to connect with locals in a way that modern tourism often doesn't allow.
You will also take part in a time-honored spiritual custom in Luang Prabang, offering alms to the local community of monks and helping to support their traditional way of life.
We recommend buying crafts, home wares and gifts from selected organizations that we can suggest so you can help support local communities and their skills and you also know that your money is directly benefiting the local economy.
