Kayaking & camping on the Nam Ou?

Hi there,

My girlfriend and I have found out about a few tours where you kayak on the Nam Ou for 2d/1n and go camping in a group.

Unfortunately all of these are way out of our price range, we don't like group tours, and would like to go for at least 3d/2n.

So we're wondering if there's anywhere between Luang Prabang, Nong Khiaw & Muang Ngoi where you can hire a kayak for a few days as well as camping gear or alternatively buy cheap camping gear and kayaks?

Also, would we need permits or any sort of permission to kayak the Nam Ou river by ourselves?

I highly doubt it. You may me able to hire kayak in MN if you talk to the locals, but the camping gear is tricky. The agencies will not want to rent it without a guide.
