We are pleased to present our enhanced tour options!

With great excitement, we unveil our refreshed tour catalogue, showcasing an array of outdoor adventures tailored for your enjoyment. Guided by years of experience and careful consideration of our clients’ preferences, we have refined our offerings, retiring certain programs while introducing thrilling new ventures.

Our outdoor escapades take place amid the breathtaking panorama that unfurls before the “Chateau Orientale” Resort. Over two decades’ worth of exploration has made us intimately familiar with this enchanting landscape, and we can say, without a shadow of a doubt, that there is no more stunning realm within the Luang Phabang area for such pursuits. Indeed, the mesmerizing vista of the jungle-clad NamNo mountain range is a siren call to adventure, beckoning one to delve into its wonders by e-bike, on foot, by kayak, or even in the company of our majestic elephants.

Within our catalogue, you will find seven half-day, six full-day, and three two-day tour options, each thoughtfully curated and exclusively provided by our organization. As we enter privately demarcated protected areas, other operators are denied access, ensuring a pristine and undisturbed experience.

It is important to note that during the high season, our tour guides’ availability may be limited. With our extensive selection of activities, some tours may not proceed, as their guides might be preoccupied with other bookings. Thus, we encourage you to book early, securing your place among the awe-inspiring landscapes we are eager to share.

We hope you’ll find delight in perusing our amped-up activities, and we eagerly anticipate welcoming you to embark on these unforgettable journeys.
