Chiang Mai 3-Hour ATV & White-Water Rafting Adventure

2. Chiang Mai 3-Hour ATV & White-Water Rafting Adventure

Before starting your activity, a safety orientation and state-of-the-art helmets and life vests are provided. The first 3-hour ATV (all-terrain vehicle) trip is set up for beginner to intermediate-level drivers. It covers roughly 40-kilometers in distance and is a mix of road and off-road jungle terrain. It’s well-suited for those that would like to explore the local countryside and see it a different way. After the ATV, the 10-kilometer white-water rafting will begin. It's broken into 3 sections. The first section is a great warm-up where you learn skills practising with the guides and getting used to the boat. This section has one class III and is probably the most beautiful section of the river with the encroaching jungle offering lots of shade. The second section is action-packed with rapids and is probably the best white water in Thailand. Most of this section is class III and IV rapids. The third section lets up in the beginning giving you some time to relax before entering a great class III rapid, leading into a short continuous section of rapids that goes almost all the way to the take out where the camp is. Towels and shower facilities will be provided when you finish before heading home. Make sure you bring a second set of dry clothes so you can ride home comfortablly.

What people are saying about Chiang Mai

My brother and I took this cooking class and we loved it. The staff was great and the facility they used was well kept and nice. The food we cooked was so good and I really enjoyed walking around and learning about the vegetables we were going to include in our dishes and picking them out from the gardens. Definitely worth the money and a unique experience!

A great experience! The informative visit to the market, the guided walk through the garden where we got to taste and smell different herbs, and the actual cooking process were all super fun. I was pretty impressed with the end product-- delicious and so satisfying to know that I'd made it myself. I highly recommend.

This was a lovely experience. Cooking outside on the farm was really nice. Market tour was nice and informative. The dishes that were cooked were very yummy and instructor’s are very fun and helpful. Pick up and drop off was on time. Free bottles of water included and lovely scenery

What a great experience in a lovely setting on a local organic farm. Cooking and sourcing the ingredients with peak results gives you an appreciation of Thai flavours and cooking styles.

Cooking with organic ingredients made foods more delicious. It was really fun.
