This tour combines the ancient wonders of Luang Prabang and the waterways of northern Laos with the rural beauty of the Bolaven Plateau and the spectacular Wat Phou in southern Laos. Fly to Luang Prabang and start unwinding in the enchanting atmosphere of this beautiful riverside town. Once tuned in to the relaxed pace of life embark on a 4 day loop travelling by private boat along the waterways of the Mekong, staying in two charming lodges located in some of the most scenic parts of northern Laos. Return to Luang Prabang for a day at leisure before flying south to explore the Bolaven Plateau, famous for its coffee plantations and many spectacular waterfalls. Continue overland to the mysterious pre-Angkorian temple of Wat Phou and the Four Thousand Islands before finishing the tour with a night in the tranquil capital Vientiane.
