Travel Experience

White Elephant Adventures is a team of local Lao, British, and Canadians, enthusiastic about organising adventurous and educational hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking tours around the UNESCO World Heritage site of Luang Prabang. White Elephant Adventures has since sent thousands of intrepid travellers trekking, kayaking, and biking deep into the mountainous jungles of Laos to home-stay with and explore the amazing Hmong, Khmu, and Lao Loum hill-tribe communities and to visit various partnering elephant villages and zip-lines around Luang Prabang.

Responsibility

White Elephant Adventures has embarked on a cooperative campaign with local authorities and village elders to eradicate unscrupulous, fly-by-night tour operators who show little regard toward environmental costs and accountability and whose chief motive is to turn a quick profit. The goal is to find a way in which all peoples of the world may benefit from the genius of modernity, without that engagement implying the loss of their ethnicity.

Business Case

Our Mission is to provide therapeutic eco-adventure excursions to discerning individuals who wish to immerse themselves into the unique strata of Lao life and culture but are willing to respect the rare ecology, traditions, and culture of the region, obey the local laws and customs, and honor the strict principles of eco-tourism.
