An authentic river experience in Laos

With the mighty Mekong River running through both Luang Prabang and Vientiane, one could be forgiven for assuming that it is the only river worth cruising in Laos. But here at Seven Skies we’re always searching for incredible and authentic experiences, so on our Seven Skies Laos experience you’ll cruise down the smaller yet equally spectacular Nam Ou river.

Hidden in the mountain mists of Northern Laos lies amazing natural beauty and a true mosaic of ethnic groups. Cruising on the Nam Ou River from Muang Khua to Nong Khiaw, soak up the tranquility of the river as you pass through stunning gorges, past stunning mountain sceneries and remote villages only accessible by boat.

For those looking for a more active experience, you’ll have the opportunity to kayak downstream through Nam Ou Gorge and the most beautiful stretch of the Nam Ou River. Marvel at unspoilt landscapes as you gain a unique perspective of Laos.
