"Siam River Adventures - Paddling Northern Thailand's Whitewater Since 2000"

Jungle Canopy Adventure / Zip Line Tour

Start your Thailand holidays off with some adventure! Join us on an exhilarating ride through some of Thailand’s most beautiful rainforest canopy on zip lines and skybridges. We are located up in the mountains just outside of Chiang Mai. From high above the forest floor you will view life from a perspective once reserved only for a select group of scientists…

SOAR THROUGH THAILAND’S RAIN FOREST CANOPY!

Take an exhilarating flight through a 1500 year-old rainforest high above the forest floor.

You zip down super strong and safe stainless steal cable easily from tree to tree on a spectacular and gradual downhill course, taking time to linger in your favorite places, soaking up the fragrance, clean air and animal life. Our safety team accompanies you and teaches you how to move through the trees with the speed and grace of a young gibbon.

Recognized as a hotspot of biodiversity, this climax old growth forest supports a huge range of plant, animal and bird life.

• 10% of our profits go directly to gibbon conservation & other conservation projects
• Eco-friendly and zero carbon footprint
• Designed and engineered by Austrian & New Zealand Specialists

Located in ancient forests on a Thai preserve 55 minutes from Chiang Mai near the village of Mae Kompong, we chose this beautiful place because here we could offer the the best environment for a thrilling experience in the quiet majesty of the rain forest ecosystem.

We don’t have a minimum age for kids – the main criteria is that they are a minimum of 120cm (4 feet tall). Young children are often taken in tandem – either by a responsible adult or a guide. Maximum weight is 150kg (330lbs) which is the max weight of the full harness. Our zip lines and rigging systems greatly exceed international standards.

Mae Kompong is 1300 meters above sea level and can get chilly – we suggest you bring a light jacket and long pants if you have them and a pair of sports shoes or shoes that do not drop off. Nevertheless none of these items are crucial. A camera is good to bring for the action. Backpacks and sunglasses are an unnecessary burden and there are storage facilities in the office when you arrive. It is also good to bring an open mind and a smile…

Make your Chiang Mai trip the thrill of a lifetime on this one of a kind rain forest canopy adventure. Take away a beautiful feeling that you will talk about endlessly for years to come.

Wet Gibbon

2-Day Rafting & Flight of the Gibbon with Homestay

Day 1: White Water Rafting Mighty Mae Taeng River

Just an hour and a half from Chiang Mai, the Mae Taeng river is without a doubt one of the most exciting thing you can do in Thailand. The Mae Taeng is a steep and continuous mountain stream; a unique combination of exceptionally fun and challenging rapids without it ever getting past the point of recreation.

The thundering of the next rapid is never far downstream and the occasional pools of calm give a chance to reflect on the awesome beauty surrounding the river. Emerald green fields are terraced high above the river and curious villagers are amazed as we plunge through cascading waves and chutes of foam.

At the river everyone is fitted with rafting gear, then the trip leader and safety kayaker give a lesson in river safety, paddling technique, and what to do if you suddenly find yourself not sitting in a raft anymore.

This trip caters to all levels, whether you’re an experienced adrenalin junkie or a first time paddler! Most rapids are class 3-with some class 4 and the best time of year for rafting is May – Oct when the river is high due to monsoon rains.
