Our company has two brands: Green Trails and Chiang Mai a la Carte. Green Trails organizes private tours and trekking to national parks and hill tribe villages in Chiang Mai and North Thailand. Our tours are adventurous, interactive, and respectful of the environment and local culture. Green Trails also specializes in educational tours for schools and universities. Chiang Mai a la Carte offers unique and unusual private tours throughout Thailand. These trips are less active than those of Green Trails and focus more on culture, history, food, community-based tourism, archaeology, festivals, and more. Customization is our strength. Chiang Mai a la Carte goes the extra mile! We will invite you to meet the people of Thailand. Join us on one of our trips for an experience of a lifetime.”

More Green Trails Experiences for families

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 organizing 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 a top priority.

Adventures in Chiang Mai and Northern Thailand

We have been involved in organizing Chiang Mai Tours and North Thailand Tours 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 and offer tribal experiences, cycling, rafting, and other nature and culture-friendly activities. We are very much aware of our impact on the environment and 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 parks with beautiful forests, sparkling rivers, and thundering waterfalls. We have developed several active tours in these national parks. We offer many different tours to Doi Inthanon National Park, but other, less-known parks 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 “hill tribes.” Each of these groups has its 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 several 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.
