About
Go kayaking on the Mae Wang River and pass by elephant camps in the jungle during this full-day excursion from Chiang Mai. Travel to the Mae Wang Valley and enter the river where it begins as a small creek, ideal for beginners. Sit-on-top kayaks are highly maneuverable and equipped with a backrest, while white-water kayaks include a spray skirt for navigating Class III and IV rapids for more experienced paddlers in the river's lower section.

Cancellation policy
  • For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.
What to expect
  • Meet your guide at your Chiang Mai hotel, and enjoy views of the scenic countryside during the 45-minute drive to the Mae Wang Valley, set in the shadow of Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s highest mountain. Learn the basics of technique and safety, then launch your boat into the upper portion of the Mae Wang River, whose Class I and II rapids are suited to beginning boaters. Choose a river kayak or a sit-on-top boat that’s the best fit for your skill level. Follow a course that passes a series of elephant camps, and spot the animals that come to the river to bathe and drink. Look for butterflies, birds and even jungle mammals along the way, and soak up the sun on easygoing stretches of water between the rapids. The Class III and IV rapids in the lower part of the river are a good fit for advanced boaters, who shouldn’t miss the boulders and white water of Lost Canyon. Your day trip includes a riverside lunch and return transport to your hotel.

Just finished a full day kayaking down the river. Our guide was spot on, great teacher and I learned lots. Got my confidence built right up before getting too far down the river.
Took lots of pictures and helped us through any tough spots. Have very little kayaking experience I would highly recommend everyone to do this tour... it’s the best way to see the jungle.... passed lots of elephants and had a good lunch at the half way point!
Will be doing another advanced tour in my future

Also you can grab an amazing cup of coffee in the morning from the little shop across the parking lot

10 stars if it would let me !!!!! Don’t leave Chiang Mai without doing this tour !!!!

We had great day kayaking down the Mae Wang river today. After pickup at the hotel we were driven to the office downtown. We were given a good, humorous and thorough safety briefing.
The drive up to the river in the red truck was a nice way to meet the group of (in our case) 7 people and 3 guides.
The kayak down the river had some interesting challenges some which resulted in a refreshing dip in the river. Guides were always around to help you out and get you on your way again.
We saw multiple elephants on our way down and the nature floating by us very relaxing. If you are looking for a safe ride with a few thrilling twists, this is the one.
