Meet the minority hill tribes

The forested slopes surrounding Chiang Mai are scattered with a handful of minority tribes living in tiny villages. During our Hikes, Bikes and Bamboo Rafting trip, you can trek through orchards to emerald rice terraces, stay with the local tribespeople and sleep in simple bamboo river huts. You’ll pass through jungles and valleys, with staggering views at every turn. Drift downstream on a bamboo raft, cycle to secluded temples and sit by the campfire with the village elders of the Karen tribe. It’s a cultural trek to really remember.

Get lost in Khao Sok

Discover the Giant Trees and Lakes of Khao Sok where the rich, enchanting jungles will set you in a spin. Spend your days explore dense jungles, sparkling lakes, cascading waterfalls and limestone cliffs. You’ll stay in a hidden community lodge, where you will be lulled to sleep by the sounds of the jungle. Next up you’ll sleep in a floating raft house, take wildlife-spotting boat trips, canoe along overgrown rivers and trek through the jungle wilderness.If you’re after an outdoor adventure in Thailand, there’s nowhere better.

Follow Khao Yai Jungle Trails

Journey to Waterfalls and Jungle Trails in Khao Yai National Park; a wilderness packed with wildlife just begging to be explored. Here, you’ll trek along atmospheric trails riddled with tree roots, keeping your eyes peeled for wild elephants, porcupines, gibbons, snakes and parrots. You’ll stay in a jungle bungalow, swim in natural waterfalls and set off on safaris through the park. On your first evening, you’ll head for the nearby caves, where you’ll watch thousands of bats swarm into the tropical sunset.

Hike to Hidden Waterfalls

Fancy a taste of tropical adventure in Thailand? Ko Chang Waterfall Island could be right up your street! Just a  few hours outside of Bangkok, this hilly, overgrown island is fringed with sugary golden beaches and it’s interior is a tangle of untamed wilderness. During you stay, you’ll trek into the heart of the island, where you’ll search for hidden waterfalls and sweeping viewpoints. Afterwards, you’ll set off to explore the mangrove forests, both on foot and by boat. Eerily still and silent, they are  bursting with atmosphere. If you’re after an island adventure, Ko Chang will be right up your street.
