I did the ATV + Rafting tour this summer in 2021. This was a must do experience in Chiang Mai. In the morning we took the ATVs out first. They did a great job with safety as well as took the time to make sure I was comfortable driving the ATV. The ride up the mountain provided great views and as an adrenaline junkie / someone who has had experiences with ATVs they really took the feedback on going faster :) They didn't push anything which was great because it was up to me to decide when to go faster. The view at the top was great.

In the afternoon we went white water rafting. The training video was great and the instructor did a great job giving me opportunities to apply the training and ask any questions that I needed. The rafting was great and conditions were great. At times we passed elephants which was awesome. The rapids were so fun! they also did a great job capturing videos and footage / allowed me to bring my go pro.

Truly a memorable day. Would recommend 10/10

We had a great day out with 8Adventure! They gave my children, 2 boys age 7 and 10, a great first time experience for ATV riding and white water rafting. The guides were super. We had a guide named Sak, and he was friendly and knowledgeable. The whole team, Eric and his staff, prioritise safety which makes it comfortable for families. We had a short hike included into the day to a waterfall with a natural slide! It was amazing! Thank you to Eric and the staff of 8Adventure for a super fun day out in Chiang mai! We will be back again!

We did the ATV and Rafting package.
We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the base camp. The base camp was really nice with free locally grown tea and coffee (and other soft drinks). The lunch provided was also very nice.There were clean showers and toilets.

There was a guide taking photos for the Whitewater rafting only, but you can take a GoPro for your own videos.

Unfortunately, due to the time of year and water level, we could only do the 8km raft. It wasn't whitewater rafting since the water level was very low. it was dry season (April). They did refund us a portion of our fee though which was welcomed.
The rapids were a great experience, seeing the local villages in the river was nice.

The ATV was exciting, although quite long (3 hours!). If you're not a avid ATV fan then maybe seeing if you can get a third activity for the morning may be recommended.

For both ATV and Whitewater you were in the presence of elephants which was magical.

We have spent a thrilling day with 8Adventures!
They picked us up from our hotel and after 1,5h we were at their base camp. We had coffee and tea and were thoroughly briefed about the safety regarding the three activities. It was clear that safety is paramount and the team is fully committed to it.
We started by the zip line, then the ATV and finally the rafting. We had so much fun!
Highly recommended!

We had been looking for companies that offered a multi day activity… We chose 8adventure and enjoyed the day with zip wire, ATV trek and 10 KM white water kayak... it was a fantastic day, very well organised from pick up in the morning to drop off back at the hotel in the evening.
The staff were great, very friendly, They gave good, clear, fun instruction.
Everybody in our group agreed that it was a fantastic day… I would have no hesitation in recommending this company, and the experience to anyone looking for a great day in Chiang Mai

With the rapids looking awesome we decided to give it a go... In the van to the launch site we watched a great training video/safety brief by Eric the owner who is very friendly and professional... and then Tom one of the guides reviewed once again before jumping in the rafts (had us smiling the entire time)
A Professional, comical and caring crew made for a lot of fun. Our guide Oh was always smiling and very fun. At the end the Hot showers were amazing! Overall a 10/10 score. Thanks 8adventure!

We were first time doing white river rafting and ATV. It was fun and more importantly they put in a lot of effort and planning in safety. This made us feel very comfortable and enjoyed the adventure to the max. They also stationed photographer at different locations to take nice pictures for us for both activities. The candid shots worth every single cent we paid. We got all the shots at a very reasonable price which came with a thumbdrive. I think it was very thoughtful service because it was impossible for us to take pictures during the activities. They also prepared towel and shower facilities at their base. Highly recommended.

This is a great place for solo travellers,couples and families.

I did a combo of zipline, ATV, 10km rafting and even though i have experience from all 3 it has been my most interesting day in Thailand so far

Great organisation, everything is thought for, great safety standards and the flow of the whole process as well as the facilities make a difference. The safety instructors speak perfect english and you can easily communicate on a good level with all the staff who are very friendly.

Big ups for Tom and the rest of the team !

All the reviews that you read about these guys are spot on, friendly, fun, professional and in some cases a little bit mad too!!! We had signed up for a morning quad biking and afternoon white water rafting (against my better judgement) but we had such a great day, made all the better by the quality team looking after us and our needs including building up my confidence and supporting my level of skill and fitness.

Quad biking entailed donning some terminator style safety jackets and a helmet but I certainly felt like I would be protected sufficiently if I came of the quad. Following on from a couple of warm up laps in the yard we set off for a 'beginners' session, travelling down some lanes before joining the river trail past the elephant sanctuary. Pulling over to let trekking elephants past, watching in awe. More than enough to brush down rusty skills or learn some new ones although we personally felt we could have opted for the advanced drive and a bit gutted we chose the easy option in the end. It was a good journey for those who like to stick to fairly even ground with various challenging obstacles thrown in - perfect for a novice or young driver. Thoroughly enjoyable and a included a welcome water break or two, the staff even loaned me some sunglasses when mine broke. The guide and support were fab, teasing each other and having a joke with us - interested in our stories and telling us about their lives too.

The beautiful bonus was a stop off at the layered waterfalls, giving everyone a chance to cool off and fool about in the water, sliding down the fall into the cool deep catch pool at the bottom. The team also had a chance to have a bit of fun, highlighting their best crazy moves down the waterfall, in response to many oo's and ahhh's.

Now, the White Water rafting - after the safety video which was watched in the van, we arrived after a short drive where I declared I wasn't going to do it - scared half to death trying to remember all the do's and don'ts, handed a life jacket that I simply stared at, the staff soon rallied to get me kitted up and sharing jokes to relax me. A further 'in person' safety briefing we hopped in to our raft. Due to my nerves and to be honest, not great level of fitness we were assigned two instructors who were spot on, gave clear instructions, lots of patience and fabulous competence - I actually realized I may not die after all!

Having run a few practices we got rowing and were soon tackling the variety of lumpy rapids warming up to the more 'scream out loud' kind of waves - our instructor guiding us down with skill and confidence. We nearly capsized a couple of times but with all the safety staff on the side and lead instructor on hand in his own canoe I soon felt confident that I could actually do it. I then started relaxing and actually really enjoyed the rest of the experience, touching dry land with the biggest grin on my face.

What an amazing day, made all the better by the superb staff and fantastic organisation - can't recommend highly enough. Enjoy!!!

Staff are very caring and so attentive. They pay attention to detail. The ATV ride is so well mapped for half a day. Be prepared to wear a padded gear long sleeve. They give you a mask and will lend you sunglasses. You will visit a village where you can buy souvenirs locally made. You will stop by the elephant sanctuary place for photos and viewing of the elephants. So amazing and best stop ever. Elephants passing by while your in ATV. They give you bottle water to drink. Final stop waterfall. The white water rafting is also well planned and it’s a half a day adventure. You get to see elephants along the path chilling. The staff make sure you are safe at most time and having a great time. They give you plastic bag for your wet clothes. So worthy and a must to do and go. Made my valentine days an excellent trip. Less than 2hrs away from the city.
