Cambodia

Cambodia is a true gem of Indochina - an intriguing land of jungles, rice paddies and great rivers, blessed with iconic temples, ancient culture and the joyful spirit of the Khmer people that rises above the country's challenging history.

This is a destination where you can really choose your own adventure, from touring cities and cultural sites in comfort to hiking, biking and paddling your way through stunning backcountry and rural communities.

No trip to Cambodia would be complete without a visit to Siem Reap, with plenty of time to explore the glorious temples, terraces and pagodas of Angkor - the most stunning legacy of the Khmer Empire.

Explore history and culture in the intriguing capital of Phnom Penh, where you can lose yourself among the colour and bustle of busy market streets, enjoy world-class cuisine or retreat into serene palaces, pagodas and temple-monasteries.

Kayak among the floating villages of the Tonlé Sap, cruise down the mighty Mekong or snorkel along the white sand beaches of Sihanoukville. Unwind in the charming French colonial river towns of Kampot and Battambang, or cycle through scattered Khmer villages and fertile farmlands, exploring Cambodia's scenic beauty and cultural treasures at handlebar level.

Whatever your interest or fitness level, we have a host of exciting itineraries tailored to give you an unforgettable Cambodian adventure.


 

Authentic experiences

We specialise in showcasing Cambodia through active itineraries that allow you to explore under your own steam. From discovering Angkor Wat and the ancient Khmer Empire at handlebar level to kayaking through the floating villages on Tonle Sap, our adventures provide an incredible and realisitic perspective of life in this part of the world.

Ultimate value

Our Cambodian adventures are great value for money, allowing you to simply focus on enjoying the experience with an added bonus of support vehicles during activites and a cycle mechanic. We aim to incorporate as many inclusions as possible in the tour cost such as most meals, activity equipment, drinking water and snacks, accommodation and transfers.

Experienced local guides

We only employ expert bilingual Cambodian guides who are eager to share their lives and culture with you. Their warmth and genuine appreciation of your visit to their homeland will leave you with a sense of new friendships and make your experience memorable.


 

Support of local communities

We employ staff from local communities and provide them with training, good wages and insurance benefits under the labor law. We also use locally run accommodation and encourage travellers to shop and dine at locally operated stalls and establishments.

Carbon travel minimisation

Our itineraries are designed to minimise the amount of carbon produced, opting for bikes, city walks, cyclos and electric cars as first options.

Child safe tourism

We protect vulnerable children by adhering to our comprehensive Child Welfare Code of Conduct and seek to educate travellers about the issues surrounding such abuses.

Animal welfare focus

We advocate against the practice of riding on the back of an elephant as part of a tourism experience and as such, we do not include elephant rides in any of our Cambodia itineraries. In the interest of public safety and animal welfare we also discourage travellers from partaking in such activities outside of our trips.


Hotels

In cities and large towns you will be accommodated in 3 to 4 star properties that are centrally located, pleasant and reliable.

Lodges

Our lodges provide comfortable accommodation that is well maintained and with good facilities.
