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.

    Unforgettable day: the professional and nice guide, taking care of us throughout the day. the scenery of the kayak in the morning was a unique emotion and the small currents of the river made the adventure a real experience. the cave, its history and the short but incredible tubing. the zip line to take your breath away for fascinating landscapes and adrenaline. Safe activity and 100% reassuring guides. the blue lagoon crowded but still nice to relax. Generous and tasty lunch. I recommend all travelers to treat themselves to this day ~ it is worth it and you will be happy!
