Fair Trek operates under parent company Tiger Trail Travel, a leading destination management company based in Luang Prabang. Founded in 2000, Tiger Trail was one of the pioneers in tourism in Luang Prabang and has since proven to be a leader in sustainable travel in Laos.
In 2007 Tiger Trail created Fair Trek out of a desire to help local communities benefit from tourism. Those early beginnings saw the implementation of innovative community-based tourism initiatives that empowered rural villages to gain direct access to the economic benefits of tourism.
Today, Fair Trek continues to develop programs that are a reflection of our love and respect for Laos. Our community-based tourism initiatives were the first of its kind in Luang Prabang and are widely recognized for their impacts in the Mekong sub-region.
We create authentic and educational travel experiences that directly benefit local communities in Laos. Our programs are built on the community-based tourism framework to empower local communities to use tourism, not be used by it.
With the participation of local residents, partner organizations and local government, we are able to design tours that maximize the positive benefits of tourism for local communities. This also ensures a valuable tourism experience for travelers.
