We want to make adventures in remote parts of the world
Topas in Southeast Asia is a part of the worldwide Danish adventure company Topas Travel established in 1973. In Southeast Asia it all started in Vietnam with remote treks in early 1990s. The great adventures were organized together with a local family and their small travel agency located in the mountains.
Topas were overwhelmed by the good spirit and soon the two companies decided to join forces resulting in Topas Adventure Vietnam, one of the first joint partnerships in the North. Today our local family is lead by second generation and our name has changed to Topas Travel. Still our ownership and adventurous spirit is unchanged as we are constantly seeking for new and unique routes into our Vietnam.
Topas Travel built Topas Ecolodge in 2005 with the support of a Danish foreign aid program. The lodge is made as a showcase for sustainable tourism in a remote mountainous area. Now the ecolodge employs around 50 staff whereas around 90% is ethnic minorities from 6 different hill tribes.

The house is build between a river and the jungle. More info: www.topasriversidelodge.com
