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

1. 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.

Suitable for adrenaline junkies

We were picked up super on time and were lucky enough to have a complete private tour with two guides who were mega. They were very nice, tried hard and open to all our questions. After the ATV tour we got a refreshment at a waterfall with a slide which was the grand ending and wiped the dust off the off-road tour. Our two lost gopros were found again after promptly procuring diving goggles. Thanks again!!! Afterwards there was a great lunch before we started rafting. Unfortunately, the water level was very low in some places, which hadn't hurt the entertainment. Each of us sat in a two canoe with a guide, which led us through the rapids with great humor. In sensitive places there were other guides who made sure that we stayed on course. Can recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys action. Super done 8adventures! we felt very comfortable with you

The 3 hour ATV ride is perfect for beginners and intermediates. It's a little slow for advanced riders looking for an adrenaline rush. Not a criticism - just an observation for everybody. The elephant park scenery stop is beautiful and the waterfall trek was good fun. We took the 2 person/3 person inflatable kayaks with a guide in each one vs the full raft into the river. This is what they use during low water season. I've used both kinds of rafts on the water before. The inflatables are WAY more fun. I recommended they offer single seat inflatables to more advanced guests. Those types of craft are the most fun.

Amazing excursions!

The driver and guides were all wonderful! I both learned a lot, saw a lot, and had an adventure of a life time. The water was low so we white water kayaked instead which was perfect as the raft wouldn’t have worked between some of the tight places. Enjoyed my time immensely!

White water rafting was great fun. First rate operation; capable, competent and safety minded. The ATV ride was awesome. Great camaraderie with the guides. Trails up the mountain provided incredible views and a decent challenge. Would do again.

It was a super varied and brilliant day, with a lot of fun and a lot of very nice people!
