There’s no outdoor experience in the world quite like paddling the lush, wildlife-filled Louisiana wetlands. New Orleans is a city famous for its nonstop nightlife, but those who are in the know understand that this area of Louisiana is also known for offering some of the top outdoor adventures in the world. Paddling our swamps is a bucket-list-worthy experience, and we’re pleased to see that the travel industry has taken notice.

Canada’s leading online global travel agency, Flight Network, recently released their list of the 42 absolute best eco-adventures in the United States, and we were excited to find Wild Louisiana Tours at No. 4. Flight Network’s team of intrepid travel writers scoured the country for the earth-friendly adventures that stand above the rest in terms of once-in-a-lifetime experiences as well as environmentally-friendly practices.

The writer suggested that our Manchac Magic kayak swamp tour is one of the best ways to experience the thrill of being up close and personal with swamp creatures, while staying completely safe at all times. Visitors will experience the former town of Ruddock, now considered a ghost town, as well as snakes, egrets, alligators and all of the characteristic creatures of the wetlands. Even more, those who opt for our swamp tours all enjoy the picture-perfect beauty of the bayou.

We couldn’t agree with the Flight Network team more. Our Manchac Magic Tour is certainly a must-try, but visitors may also be interested in our Inshore Kayak Fishing Charter, our Swamp Landscape Photo Workshop, an exciting Overnight Camping Tour or a more mellow walking tour of the Big Easy. Whatever type of adventure you’re seeking, we’ll help you find it and more at Wild Louisiana Tours.
