Trekking in Thailand

Trek through tropical jungles packed with wildlife and hike between emerald rice terraces to meet minority hill tribes. With sweeping landscapes, hidden waterfalls and dizzying mountains, Thailand is a trekker’s delight. Follow untamed jungle paths, stay at home with welcoming tribal families and sleep in floating raft houses amidst an overgrown wilderness. If you’re eager to see the world on foot, Thailand is a perfect starting point.

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.

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.

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.
