Easy Adventures in Laos
Looking for a simple and exciting way to discover Laos? Take an Easy Adventure to explore the country’s pristine nature, ethnic villages, and heritage sites dating back 1,000s of years.


Curiosity leads to adventure. What’s down that path? What’s around the next turn? What’s inside that hole in the mountain? In Laos, the answer is, “Plenty. Go have a look.” And, there’s loads of Easy Adventures for all ages and levels of ability. That easy trail might lead to a giant waterfall. Ride a bike around that turn and you might stumble into a sacred ancient temple. You can even take a boat ride into caves.     

Easy Adventures in nature take you inside protected areas to spot birds and wildlife, swim in clear waterfall pools, and creep inside caves with bizarre rock formations. History hounds can explore archaeological ruins, examine relics and murals in ancient temples, and inspect museum displays. If you’re a culture vulture, immerse yourself in an ethnic village visit and overnight homestay to experience traditional lifestyles and customs that remain alive today.

Head off on an Easy Adventure that combines nature, culture, and history. A single path, village, or road often opens the door to all three. From the mountainous northwest to Mekong River rapids rushing through the south, the curious will uncover plenty of wonders on a memorable authentic adventure in Laos.
