Family Trekking

Thailand is a fantastic destination for your family. It probably is the child-friendliest country in Southeast Asia. There is a wide range of food available. Hygienic standards are very high and many hotels have family rooms. Thailand is also still great value for money.  During the European school holidays families have traveled to Thailand for a holiday in increasing numbers. We have been organising hundreds of family treks over the past ten years. Our guides are used to work with kids and they really love it. They are aware of their responsibility. Safety is top priority.

Adventures in Chiang Mai and Northern Thailand

We have been involved outdoor activities in Northern Thailand for more than 25 years. In the early days trekking was one of the most popular activities for tourists. It was also the only activity on offer for visitors. That has changed over the years. We still love trekking but also offer tribal experiences, cycling, rafting and other nature and culture friendly activities. We are very much aware of our impact on the environment and on communities. We monitor our activities as much as possible to make sure our footprint is as small as possible.

Chiang Mai National Parks Adventures

Northern Thailand is a stunningly beautiful area. There are many national park with beautiful forests, sparkling rivers and thundering waterfalls. We have developed a number of active tours in these national parks. We offer many different tours to Doi Inthanon National Park but there are also other, less known parks that are worth visiting. We will do everything possible to minimize our footprint in these lovely, protected areas.

Chiang Mai Tribal Experiences

A variety of ethnic minority groups inhabit the mountains of Northern Thailand. They are often called “hilltribes”. Each of these group has their own interesting customs, traditions, and dress. Most groups have their own language. Although development has eroded this heritage they still keep their own customs and traditions. We offer a number of tours that focus on these minority groups. We will show you this heritage. By doing this we hope to contribute to the preservation of these invaluable cultures.
