The Lake Explorer
Very close to the Burma border, in the middle of lush mountainous tropical forest is a lake. A lake with floating islands of water lilies, hunting eagles and foraging hornbills, fishermen in fragile canoes, stunning cliffs with monkeys. A lake where Burma touches Thailand and the locals are mostly from the Karen or Mon tribes, who years back moved freely forth and back across the borders here.
The Lake Explorer is your small cool floating hideaway, where you can stay in comfort in the middle of sheer remoteness. A Lake Explorer journey serves you a balanced mix of explorations and time to be laid back. Every night and day our staff will make you feel comfortable in their own personalized way. Every day you anchor at new place. Enjoy the mountain backdrop by sunset, kayak to a small island nearby or hang out at the mini pool in the stern. The Lake Explorer is a perfect journey for adventurous families.
Please note: The itinerary is weather dependent and the captain might need to do deviations.

Both tours are in the Kanchanaburi province west of Bangkok - about 3 hours drive. Both tours are centered on and around the River Kwai - the river flowing from the Khao Laem Lake/Dam, where our Lake House used to sail.
Kanchanaburi province is well know for its wartime history, but the nature, countryside and access to adventure are the real draw - and your reasons to go!
The province is tied together by water. It's the nerve system and accommodation, activities and transportation often takes place on (or in) the water. Go by longtail boat to a remote village, swim in the flushing waterfalls and stay in guesthouses above the water offering fine views of the majestic limstone peaks.
