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

Whitewater Rafting – Chiang Mai & Northern Thailand

Northern Thailand’s Most Popular Whitewater Rafting Adventures!

Northern Thailand is the perfect location for exciting whitewater. With its warm , tropical weather, steep mountains, and beautiful scenery, the Mae Taeng is the nexus of fun in northern Thailand.

From July through March the rivers are flowing and we are operating tours daily! In the rainy season (Jul-Oct.) the rivers swell, becoming raging whitewater pushing its way out of the mountainous tropical rainforest around Chiang Mai.

We offer full day and multi-day whitewater rafting trips on the Mae Taeng River as well as custom and organized expedition style trips on both the Mae Kok and Nam Wa rivers.

Join us for an unforgettable adventure as we tackle the mighty and untamed Mae Taeng River, paddling our way through endless grade 3 and 4 rapids.

A full safety talk is standard on all trips and is given by our English speaking staff. A detailed understanding of the trip, its schedule, safety, and routine is instilled into each guest before any trip commences in order to better serve you.

Each trip is supervised by experienced guides and dedicated safety personnel, ensuring that our international standards of safety are upheld.

Our daily expeditions cater to all levels, whether you’re an experienced adrenalin junkie or a first time paddler!

Experience the beauty of the rainforest and remote areas of Northern Thailand as we follow the rivers through untouched wilderness and past quaint rural hill tribe villages.
