Here's what people say about us:

"River and Soul offer a truly unique adventure that imerses you into Nepal's beauty and allows you to delve deeper into it's culture. The guides, Callum and Janey, are clearly in love with this gorgeous corner of the world and provide the best experience introducing you to all that Nepal has to offer. From the magnificent mountains, wildlife and most welcoming people.

I went on the Best of Both tour which shows off Nepal's highlights. This includes relaxed city tours, home stays in Sirubari and free time, as well white water rafting and day treks which are tailored to all abilities (I am not the fittest person but this did not hold me back). It is hard for me to pick my favourite aspect of this tour but I particularly enjoyed waking up on the beaches before a new day of rafting and also being welcomed into the homes of the most hospitable hosts in Sirubari. River and Soul also organised a Himalayan flight tour and paragliding as extras for me, which I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend."

- Kirsty, U.K.

"Hi Callum,

I just wanted to say a quick thank you to you and Janey for doing a great job with our trip. I was going over our time and was thinking of just how everything was handeled in high style, from the Hise vehicle , to the A/C 4x4s , to our accomadations . All very nice touches that went a long way.

I hope that your continued travels are great. "

- Pete, U.S.A.

"I spent a lot of time with Callum, the owner of River and Soul Adventures, in Nepal. Not only is he an extremely welcoming and outgoing individual, he knows his way around Nepal too. I have all the confidence in the world trusting Callum with my Nepali holiday plans...he's going to put you and your family on the worlds most scenic rivers (with the safest rafting company), and he'll point you to the best spots in town to dine and dally. River and Soul Adventures has a solid and competent captain at its helm, ready to plan your holiday outside your realm."

- Kelly Robinson, U.S.A.

"I went on a trip organised by Callum and I had such an incredible time! We definitely created memories that will last a lifetime! Callum’s energy and dedication ensuring that everything went smoothly was very impressive and he always went above and beyond to make sure that everyone who he was ever with had a smile on their face. It was evident that Callum had substantial experience with the outdoors showing remarkable calmness and assurance whatever the situation. I am sure that anybody taking a trip with Callum will love every second of it and will look back on their adventure with great fondness."

- Adam Firth, U.K.

Welcome to River and Soul

Provider of bespoke cultural and adventure tours in Nepal, but with a difference. One of the most notable aspects of Nepal is its unique culture. Its the one thing that people talk about time after time when they are recounting stories to their friends. But how many people get to truly experience the culture and how many are simply observing it?

Here at River and Soul, we believe that to truly experience a culture you must be immersed in it. That’s why you will be taken off the beaten track from secluded river beaches to the cultural serenity of Sirubari. We provide a different experience that allows you to become part of Nepal.

River and Soul is run by Callum and Janey who have deep personal connections with Nepal. From helping in orphanages, taking part and running Rotary International Projects, to guiding the many whitewater rivers. They have travelled all across Nepal giving them invaluable knowledge of the country. This coupled with their years of traveling the world, guiding and instructing adventure sports world-wide, and infamous ukulele and singing skills, allows them to give you a unique once in a life time experience that is both full of thrills and spiritually humbling...
