Still surprisingly simple, Laos offers charms many other countries in the region left behind long ago. The lifestyle is laid back, friendly and simple and it’s easy to want to stay! Whether it is the stunning and unforgettable UNESCO world heritage listed Luang Prabang or the mysterious Plain of Jars to the pristine old growth rainforest or jagged limestone cliffs, Laos offers a kaleidoscope of experiences. Largely untouched by tourism, the Laos people are incredible hosts and when sipping on an ice cold beer enjoying the myriad of local food on offer, you will want to return again and again. We look forward to showing you our Laos.
RIDING IN LAOS
Our tours are fully guided with extensive support and back up for your trip. Riding conditions in Laos are more basic than Vietnam or Sri Lanka. The infrastructure is being improved every day though there are sections on tour where much of the day is on unsealed roads. So, tour participants must have a reasonable level of fitness and be able to ride a motorbike confidently. We don’t provide the option for pillion passengers in Laos, though we do have the option to ride in a support vehicle or hire a dedicated vehicle for non and novice riders so everyone is able to enjoy the fun!
WHEN TO RIDE
Although Laos has two distinct seasons: the wet and the dry, it is suitable for touring year round. The dry season runs from October to April and wet season May to September. The hottest months of the year are March to the end of May and temperatures around 35 degrees during the day are to be expected. During the wet season the temperatures around 29 to 30 degrees and cool nights. During the wet season, it typically rains overnight and in the mornings with clear afternoons. Though we are not mother- nature and make no promises! It does help mix up the off road sections though!
