This is our most popular combination package. Enjoy an 3 hour ATV ride through the Mae Taeng Valley combined with the action-packed class III-IV whitewater on the Mae Taeng River. Experience the jungle and rivers of Northern Thailand on this amazing day.

The 3-hour ATV trip is set up for beginners to intermediate drivers. We start out with detailed instructions and a training course to get you comfortable with your vehicles. It covers roughly 40 km in distance it is a mix of on 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.

During the second part of the day you will tackle some of Thailand’s best whitewater rapids on a full-day rafting adventure from Chiang Mai. Expert guides ensure your safety as you cruise through the jungle along class III and IV rapids, and an included lunch and other amenities make for a worry-free day in the wilds of Northern Thailand.
  • Two adventures in one: jungle ATV and whitewater rafting from Chiang Mai

What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Chiang Mai and travel to the beginning of an ATV course that winds though the beautiful Mae Taeng Valley. Get comfortable on a short training course and then follow a mix of trails and country roads, as you rev the ATV engine, getting farther into the lush countryside. The ATV adventure concludes at a base camp by the Mae Taeng River, where you have time for lunch with access to showers and changing rooms. Get suited up for whitewater rafting and launch into the Mae Taeng River: Pass a stretch of Class III rapids, splash through a more challenging section of Class III and IV rapids, and enjoy some calm before a final stretch of exciting whitewater. Following your time on the Mae Taeng River, meet back up with a driver for the return trip to your Chiang Mai hotel.

We are a family of 3 with a teenage daughter (13) so we booked 2 adults and 1 child however I had to pay an extra THB 900 for the TV Quad Bike because they expected my daughter to be a passenger instead of a driver which was confusing as it does not mention this on the website.
