About ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA (ATA)

Established January 2012

ActiveTravelAsia (ATA) offers a wide selection of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar adventure tours, including hiking and trekking, biking, motorcycling, overland touring and family travel packages.

In 2006 four outdoor enthusiasts who are close friends, Kien (Tony), Bich (Bobby), Bao and Jimmy, decided to take their passion for adventure travel in Asia and create a travel company with a difference: ACTIVETRAVEL ASIA. Today ATA has grown to become one of the Indochina's leading adventure travel companies. We offers a wide selection of Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar adventure tours, including hiking and trekking, biking, motorcycling, overland touring and family travel packages. Our packages and tailor-made private itineraries will take you through exotic destinations to really experience the culture, history and nature of Asia.

In 2006, the ATA first operated in Vietnam with 2 offices in Hanoi and Saigon and a range of unique trekking routes and cycling routes developed in Northern Vietnam and Mekong Delta. Later this year ATA developed the first adventure motorcycling trip on the historic Ho Chi Minh Trail from Hanoi to Hoi An. This trip quickly grasped adventurous riders' interest and has become one of ATA's most successful trips so far.

The next year, 2007, the success of ATA in Vietnam led to increasing forays into neighboring countries, Cambodia and Laos. Cycling route from Mekong Delta to Angkor Wat temples in Siem Riep was explored in early 2007 and two months later, the first expedition was run with 20 pro cyclists from UK. The full operation of ATA in Cambodia and Laos marked with the opening of branch offices in Phnom Penh, Siem Riep and Vientiane.

The increasing demand for adventure travel and the endless passion of our team for exploring hidden lands make us to step further to develop ATA style of adventure travel in other countries in Asia.

With 4 Years of Experience, we have a deserved reputation for innovation, for quality of service and for providing once-in-a-lifetime active holidays. ATA's accumulated expertise allows you to maximise your precious holiday time and to experience the very best of your chosen destination.

ATA has continued to grow and develop an increasing range of destination and extensive range of adventure trips. Nowadays, ATA operates with 5 offices in major cities in Indochina, a team of professional adventure travel consultants and tour leaders and last but not least an ambition to be the leading adventure tour operator in Asia.

We run the most adventure tours available in Indochina and Asia. 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!
