About The Hiker
THE HIKER was founded by a team of expert Eco-tour guides, who have been guiding in NamHa national park and other provinces of Laos for several years. THE HIKER aims to innovate the responsible local tourism industry with its professional, by delivering high motivation to the local-guides team, offering ethical services, providing premium quality eco-tours suitable for all clients, whilst sharing responsibility and benefits with local communities. THE HIKER specialises in jungle trekking tours from 1 up to 7days, while multi-adventure tours e.g. "Combined adventure trekking & kayaking" are the second specialty. Its trails are privately used, covers most of the dense forest and wilderness areas. Main accommodation recommended by THE HIKER is jungle stay, whether camping in a bamboo hut, in tent or even creating your own shelter with bamboo & banana leafs. Homestay in a remote village is also a good choice for a softer wilderness experience.
