This is an action-packed, authentic experience and the perfect way to see different sides of Chiang Mai in just four days.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Climb to the summit of Doi Suthep temple and enjoy the hypnotic atmosphere of chanting Buddhist monks and sweeping views of the city.
  • Uncover Thailand’s rural charm as you hike and bike through scenic hilltribe areas, rice paddies and lush jungle landscapes.
  • Cycle off the main streets and into the heart and soul of Chaing Mai with a back street, countryside bike tour.
  • Go whitewater rafting over the rugged rapids of the Mae Taeng River – said to be some of the best rafting in all of Asia.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, EcoThailand Foundation. Donations help educate school children on important environmental issues like climate change, nature appreciation, conservation and sustainability.

Is this trip right for you?
  • This Short Break Adventure is a ‘join in’ group departure, which means you are not accompanied by an Intrepid group leader – our local representative fills this role – and the configuration of any fellow travellers in the group might change during the trip.
  • This trip will run with a minimum of one person, so you may be joined by other travellers booked on the same date as you, or you may be on your own.
  • This is an active style trip so a good level of fitness and a passion for hiking, biking and rafting is of course recommended.
  • Your evenings will be free, and your local guide will be able to recommend some restaurants to dine at.

Our guides A.K. and Oat were so friendly and knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. We got some wonderful exercise, saw beautiful scenery, and got a boost of adrenaline all in one quick trip. This was just the addition we needed for our trip to Thailand!

An amazing trip that I would definitely recommend! My tour guide AK was so fun and friendly and gave so much interesting information about Thailand history and culture. The trip was so well organised and the hotel I stayed in was lovely. I wish I could do the trip again, thanks so much :)
