About Us

River and Soul – For a different experience...

River and Soul are dedicated to providing high quality and custom-made adventures. Nepal has some of the most exciting whitewater, extraordinary culture, and unbelievable mountains that are to be found anywhere on Earth. You just have to get off the beaten track to find it. That's why we chose Nepal as our destination. It is the perfect place to combine our love for adventure and our love for foreign culture.

All our tours are fully guided. We work on a high guide-to-client ratio to make sure that you have not only having a great time, but also a safe time. All our tours are full board, meaning that your tour price includes all of your in-country transport, accommodation, meals, and drinking water. To top it off, River and Soul only use private transport! We have a variety of vehicles available, from 4x4s to minibuses, so that you will always be in a suitable vehicle for the terrain.

For our clients, we do everything. From creating comprehensive tours to working with individual clients to design their own bespoke packages. Providing you with detailed Quotation Packs when booking and meeting you at arrival in Kathmandu Airport is just the tip of the iceberg. We'll be with you every step of the way to ensure you a stress-free trip that will stand out in your memories for the rest of your lives.

Charity

Through Callum and Janey, River and Soul is dedicated to helping and improving the education for people in Nepal. As a member of Rotary International, we work on projects that create a better education system and facilities in remote rural areas of Nepal. Our current project is growing ever bigger than we ever imagined. Partnering with Microsoft and bringing Nepalese students on an exchange trip to the UK in 2019 are just some of the exciting features of projects currently taking place. Read more about Callum and Janey’s work with Rotary International here.

Responsible Tourism:

Enviroment and working with Locals

We understand that our planet's environment is very delicate and needs protecting. River and Soul does its best to have as little impact as possible. From using bio-degradable soap wash ourselves and our pots and pans to team clean sweeps at every camp to make sure that we leave nothing behind.

River and Soul also partners with local organisations, companies, and guides so that we contribute as much as possible to the local economy. We are dedicated to paying our Nepalese guides a good wage and keep the industry running. This also means that you get a truly Nepali experience!

Virtually all the food we eat on tour is bought at local markets or grown in the villages we stay at. Most of our Nepalese guides grew up along the banks of the river or in the mountains that they now work on. This gives them a specialist in-depth knowledge of the river, mountains, and the local area allowing them to keep you safe, while at the same time showing you spectacular sights that are rarely seen by the outside.

Hi everyone, I'm Janey. A worldwide adventurer, I've travelled to over 30 countries and counting! Nepal was my first solo trip which sparked the flame for my worldwide adventures! During my time travelling I've been a mountain bike guide, worked for a Kayaking company in Milford Sound and volunteered my time to different projects all over the world. A keen mountain climber, scuba diver and kayaker you'll always find me planning new adventures while also balancing local charity work. Click on the button below to find out more about me!

Hi everyone, I'm Callum. I first came to Nepal to conduct research for my University dissertation and to help run a charity project with Rotary International. Over the years I've guided a variety of adventure sports all round the world, but I've always been drawn back to Nepal. The mountains and rivers here are something else and I always eagerly anticipate my next visit. I have always kept up my roots with the charity work too. The Nepal project has expanded way beyond any of us had dared to dream. I'm so proud of the team and what we have achieved.
