Whitewater Rafting Adventure in Chiang Mai
Explore some of Thailand’s best rapids during this full-day adventure tour from Chiang Mai. Guides will ensure your safety while you endure class III and IV rapids through the jungle with fellow thrill seekers. After a day of rafting, enjoy a Thai lunch along with other snacks before heading back to your hotel.
What to Expect

Meet your guide at your hotel and prepare for a 1.5-hour journey to the rafting site. Receive a safety and equipment briefing before heading out to class III and IV rapids. This tour is suitable for everyone and is optimized for all skill levels.

There are three different sections that comprise this rafting course. It begins with a calm segment with one class III rapid to get warm up the group. From here it’s a thrilling ride through class III and IV rapids along a 6-mile (10-km) course with a few calm points sprinkled in.

Those who are under 15 or less experienced, can opt out of the challenging 1.2-mile section of the river and jump back in after.

After the roughly two hour journey, enjoy a delicious Thai lunch accompanied with non-alcoholic beverages and snacks before heading back to your Chiang Mai hotel.

This was one of the activities I was looking forward to in Chiang Mai and it ended up being my least favorite activity in my entire visit to Thailand. The OC4Pack boys (14) and (11), my wife and myself have been white water rafting in...More

we went a few days ago and it was very fun but I think the water is meant to be higher when the rainy season is in full flow ( August-Oct). We were away from our hostel from 11.30 - 6ish but the actual rafting was around... More
