This 14-day overland adventure explores the top highlights of two distinct countries, from the ethnic minority villages, plus the spectacular waterfalls and bucolic "4000 Islands" of the Mekong River, in Laos, to Cambodia's "floating villages" and the great temple complex of Angkor. Along the way, you'll get to explore by river boat, bicycle, and tuk-tuk, while gaining an immersion and intimate insight into the two nations' diverse cultures.
Laos Travel Insights
Mountain biking, kayaking, hiking, cultural sightseeing in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a homestay with a local family, and a luxurious stay in a private bungalow — all in a four-day trip? You've got it. This active getaway is short but action-packed, well-suited to travelers who want to get away from it all, breathe some fresh air, and fit in a couple of workouts along the way.
Northern Laos is topographically incredible! These higher elevations are inhabited by a variety of tribes who have never fully integrated into the modern Laos state. Flowing between these stunning mountains are wild rivers, including the iconic Mekong which at this point rushes through narrow rocky sections where Elephants occasionally can be seen on the shore. Despite the jagged mountain landscape, Northern Laos can be ridden by those who are not fond of hill climbing.
