Oxalis Adventures was established in June 2011 and strives to provide a unique experience for those seeking to explore remote jungle, wild river caves and quench their thirst for adventure whilst in Vietnam.
Our mission is to create a world-class adventure tourism business in Quang Binh, by providing professional services of the highest quality following a strategy of social/cultural sustainability; environmental conservation & economical sustainability
After consideration & discussions on global travel trends & the adventure travel situation in Phong Nha, Oxalis has now defined the following priorities for the business plan in the next season:
- Promoting safe & friendly adventure travel
Oxalis commits to keep on promoting safe & friendly adventure travel with safety as a top priority. It is the way we run our tours, the way our guides/staff are trained and the extent to which we put safety first in all matters.
Guides, safety assistants & porter teams are receiving training every year to be able to handle emergency or unexpected situations. Safety equipment is checked & updated regularly to maintain the highest quality.
Environmental conservation & sustainable environmental practices are visible on any Oxalis tours and we will keep up the good work of protecting the environment, including the caves and surrounding jungle. Everything brought into the jungle is brought out. No permanent infrastructure exists. Tours are closed for several months each year during the flood season due to safety & conservation matters.
- Encouraging local community involvement.
Most people employed by Oxalis are locals from Phong Nha or Tan Hoa village, and at the heart of Oxalis is the desire to provide stable employment for local people. Oxalis commits to creating job opportunities with a stable income & improving local living conditions. .
