Full description
Start your full-day adventure with pickup from your hotel in Vang Vieng and join a 6-mile ride north to Ban Vieng Samai, the kayak starting point. Your kayaking guide will provide you with paddling instructions before you set off downstream on Nam Song River. On the journey, glide over many small rapids and enjoy the scenery of the incredible mountain karts along both sides of the river. Then, take a break from your kayaking tour with a visit to Tham Nam Cave. Tube inside the marvelous, 1,640-foot-long cave, dragging yourself with the help of a fixed rope. Take some time to enjoy a picnic lunch and then hop back on your kayak, paddling until you reach the center of Vang Vieng. Afterwards, you will have the choice to either be transferred back to your hotel, or to participate in activities such as zip lining and swimming in the Blue Lagoon 1. Before the zip line experience, your guide will walk you through instructions and safety training. Fly 4,440 feet over the green forest and river. The journey consists of 7 lines, 12 platforms, and 2 bridges. The Blue Lagoon 1 is one of the most famous locations in the city. Sit back and relax or jump in the natural pool to cool down. After your fun day out, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Vang Vieng in the evening.

Excellent. On time pickup at hostels. Even came back for some late ppl. Guides Duang and Pu communicated well. Told us what to expect. River was easy and clean, see through water. Then we bought more activities at lagoon with cash. Duong made it possible. The operator guy at wonderfull tours knows english and apparently everybody in Laos. Found us last minute bus to Luang Prabang, took him four calls. Wonderfull Service!! Thanks!

Absolutely amazing and such good value for money!! Unfortunately there was a bit of confusion with the pick-up as everywhere it said pick-up was at the activity start time (9am) and we were there at 8:45am, but they had already been and gone around 8:30am. Nevertheless, the came back and got us which was great! It was a jam-packed day, really adventurous and fun! Also each activity was really versatile. We even thought there was only one zip line and were surprised when we found there were multiple! Even with it being really busy, it didn’t feel rushed at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful, as well as informative and gave us really interesting facts. Throughout the day gave us plenty of bottles of water. The BBQ lunch was also really tasty and was a very good portion size. The staff were also very good at ensuring they checked allergies/dietary requirements. Thank you all for a brilliant day! Unforgettable experiences and high recommend! Overall, a fantastic experience!!
