ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA (ATA) has been leading the way in adventure and responsible travel in Indochina, not just to new itineraries, but pioneering new approaches to adventure travel that guarantee your experience with ATA will be qualitatively superior.

Private and Customized adventure itineraries

ATA offers a wide selection of adventure tours, including hiking and trekking, biking, kayaking, motorcycling, overland touring and family travel packages. Our packages and custom itineraries will take you through exotic destinations to really experience the culture, history and nature of Vietnam. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy an unforgettable active vacation. We run the most adventure tours available in Vietnam and Indochina. Our active trips are designed for all levels of outdoor enthusiasts, real people seeking real fun and adventure. Of course, a reasonable level of personal fitness, good health, and interest in outdoor activities is advisable, but you don't need to be a tri-athlete or be an expert in any of the activities you will undertake. Come along and even try something new if you wish. If you like to walk, run, trek, hike, paddle, bike, or go to the gym, you'll love our trips!


As our slogan "Actively exploring hidden lands", over the years, we have pioneered new destinations and experiences and continue to do so today. We consistently push the boundaries by creating unique, real and innovative itineraries. To illustrate, ATA ran the first motorcycling tour on Ho Chi Minh Trail from northern to southern Vietnam. We developed the first trekking expedition in Cao Bang. ATA is the only tour operator that provides walking poles for jungle trekking in Vietnam. We introduced camping in Siem Riep, which is a great way to discover Angkor Wat. We never stop innovating!

Responsible Travel

Being a responsible tour operator is at the heart of what ATA is all about. From the start, we have been committed to offering low-impact tours that benefit traveler and host alike. We work with local communities, businesses and individuals to develop sustainable tourism opportunities that help local economies while minimizing negative environmental and cultural impacts.

Part of ATA operating philosophy is to respect the communities in which we operate. We do this by acting in a manner that is environmentally, socially and economically responsible. While our sustainable tourism policies are constantly evolving, our commitment to socially conscious, grassroots style travel has never changed.
