Laos’ natural beauty is a draw for many travelers who want to experience the remote mountains, vistas along unpaved roads, secret waterfalls and meet members of ethic minorities. These 10 curated ecotourism experiences will not disappoint.
The Nam Et-Phou Louey National Protected Area, in the north-east of Laos, is the largest of its kind in the country. The Nam Nern Night Safari is a 24-hour tour that takes visitors on a traditional long-tail boat ride during the day and offers some great nature activities that include birdwatching, wildlife tracking, nighttime wildlife spotting, medicinal plant exploration and easy hiking. Winner of ‘World Responsible Tourism Award’ in 2013 and 2014, the Wildlife Conservation Society has been developing ecotourism products since 2009 to connect tourists to local people who will be incentivized to protect endangered species.
In addition to bike rentals and repairs, BikingLaos organizes a whole host of cycling tours to see the Lao PDR at a slow pace with zero emissions. No matter your experience with cycle touring, the experienced team will make sure you have a great time whether it’s a one-day tour around Luang Prabang, a 10-day overland tour from Thailand or to Vietnam, or the 17-day Vientiane to Luang Prabang cycling loop that includes Nam Ngum, Vang Vieng, Kasi, and Xayaboury.
