Between Muang Khua and Nong Khiaw, a beautiful route to the Mekong and the sacred city of Luang Prabang. Your private motorboat takes you along an historical axis once used by the Laos to venture north and join the Muangs.

The River Nam Ou is considered one of the most beautiful rivers in the country and offers amazing vistas along its course – limestone cliffs, remote jungle, fishermen, sleepy hamlets and even people panning for gold. A pleasant picnic lunch is served on one of the sandy banks of the river. An unforgettable experience in a stunning part of SE Asia.

Important: between October and March, we recommend reserving your stay and any activities in advance.

We have recommended the most popular activities within our different packages and the options shown under “Your Stay”.


No request is too great and no detail is too small. We are also here to assist you before your trip begins.
