Full-Day River Kayaking Trip in Northern Thailand Jungle from Chiang Mai

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide at your Chiang Mai hotel and journey out into the countryside to begin your kayaking adventure. After learning the basics of paddling and steering your kayak, zip up your life jacket and take to the waters of the Ping River.

    Follow your guide on a thrilling tour, floating down tranquil creeks, paddling through flooded forests and overgrown waterways. As you wind through the bamboo forests and duck beneath overhanging trees, hear about the local hunters and fishermen that frequent the region’s wild landscapes from your guide.

    Along the way, spot birds, tropical fish and other native wildlife as you paddle deeper into the jungle, then stop to re-fuel with a delicious lunch (included) by the riverside.

    Finally, return to your starting point for the transfer back to Chiang Mai and end your tour with drop-off at your hotel.

    Please note: this tour is suitable for motivated beginners with a reasonable level of fitness.

    This was an amazing trip. We travelled 90 mins drive north of Chiang Mai through great scenery to our launch point. It was a small group with two guides. The water felt very safe (and in many parts was only 2-3 feet deep) and we...More

    Absolutely worth it. Top guides, small groups (we we're six), water and lunch included. But the most important, the landscape is amazing. Pure junglefeeling and it was just our group on the water, not like in France at adeche for example.
