Everything about kayaking in Northern Thailand is a memorable experience...
How many places in the world can you follow a full days paddling, with an hour long full body massage before eating amazing local cuisine at traditional restaurants?
Imagine riding an elephant back to your car after paddling the Tard Luang River, only an hour from Chiang Mai, or being humbled by the intricate architecture of the Buddhist temples nestled amongst the spectacular scenery on the way to the river.
Perhaps the main highlight of the trip is a three day trip down the Nam Wah river... 50 miles of stunning scenery, tropical wildlife and over a hundred rapids without a portage!
This is no normal paddling holiday. If you are after an easy, completely hassle free kayak holiday... go to the French alps. Experience Northern Thailand is an opportunity for adventure, to experience things, people and places that will blow you away and that are totally different to what you have seen before. This is a trip that you will remember for the rest of your life.
