Top Trips for Disappearing into the Jungle

Nick Dauk

Senior Travel Writer

Lose the compass and let the wild be your guide when you book these jungle adventures with Culture Trip.

Give into the urge to pack a single bag, board a plane and get lost in the wilds of the world. You won’t need a map on these jungle excursions, just an appetite for adventure. Venture into areas where big cats and venomous snakes lounge about in secrecy, no more bothered by your presence than they are by the sun rays passing through the canopy. Cake mud on your boots as you hike through Thailand’s jungles or return from Nepal’s rapids with soaked-through socks. Whichever you choose, pack an extra change of clothes for these jungle adventures.

The Real Costa Rica

We feel like “disappearing into the jungle” is a bit misleading when it comes to this nine-day Costa Rica getaway. You’ll certainly find yourself venturing into the Costa Rican cloud forest, riding down whitewater jungle rapids in La Fortuna and hiking through tropical landscapes in search of secret swimming holes. The “disappearing” part may just wait until your mind melts into a cup of joe at a coffee collective or when you’re lost in thought during a sunrise yoga class on the Pacific shoreline.

Adventurous Ecuador

Ecuador may be a small nation but, with Andean peaks and Amazonian rainforests, there is plenty of jungle fun you can have on our adventurous eight-day trip here. After horse-riding in Cotopaxi National Park and hiking around Quilotoa crater lake we’ll head on a bike ride across the Banos waterfall route, stopping at three epic waterfalls amid the luscious surrounding greenery. Then it’s on to the Amazon, where we’ll white-water raft down Jatunyacu River and stay in a dreamy tropical jungle lodge, equipped with outdoor pool and spa facilities.

Incredible Thailand and Laos by Train

As if the temples, elephants and jungle glamping sites of Thailand aren’t enough on their own, we decided to include a journey deep into Laos on this epic two-week Rail Trip. After crossing the border we’ll head down the Mekong River on a jungle boat cruise, stopping off at rural villages to meet locals and their whisky-making traditions. The highlight of Laos? Without doubt Kuang Si falls – a spectacular stream of turquoise water found deep within a steamy green rainforest. You’ll trek through the forest, stopping off at the falls for a few hours, on day nine of this tropical adventure.
