About This Trip

Deep in the heart of the northern jungles of Thailand lies the road less travelled. Lazy rivers meander through dense tropical jungle. Hill tribes live tucked away amongst the trees and elephants bathe in vast baths of vibrant mud. We don’t want you to see this from the window of a bus, instead, we are going to take you right amongst it in your own iconic little Tuk-Tuk.  

 

This is a wild adventure through the less-explored parts of Thailand. Led by skilled local guides you will trek to remote temples, through lush rainforest packed with wildlife. You will take to the wild rivers, rafting through precious, untouched landscapes. You will learn all about Thai culture, by visiting different groups of locals, from hill tribes to stunning little villages. And of course, you will stay in some of the most unique hotels nestled in the jungle or surrounded by rice paddies, all offering an outstanding array of that fiery, mouthwatering Thai cuisine. 

 

Taking a Tuk-Tuk through the north of Thailand is an adventure like no other. You can get to places no conventional tour would take you, exploring well off the beaten track, but each night returning to a little slice of luxury at your ultra-comfortable local hotel. 

 

Add to this an unforgettable trip to an elephant sanctuary, hikes to hidden temples and breathtaking waterfalls, and opportunities to try some of the greatest Thai food the country has to offer and you have an adventure that you will definitely never forget.

highlights

Exploring the north of Thailand is a proper adventure. This is a chance to see a part of the world that not many people get to see, and because of the nature of the landscape, we wanted to do it differently. The Tuk-Tuk is not everyone's first idea of how to travel through an area like this. Mostly you see Tuk-Tuks zooming about the big cities, but out in the rural parts of the country, they are still a pretty rare site. But this is such a tactile trip. It is not just about the sites (which are amazing) but about the deep, rich scent of the jungle, the warm air flowing through the open sides of the Tuk-Tuk and the ability to access tiny places that other tours just can't get to. 

 

Aside from the everyday highlight of driving your Tuk-Tuk (or being chauffeured depending on what you desire), there are so many incredible things to see on this trip. Exploring the summit and foothills of Thailand’s highest summit, Doi Inthanon, hiking little-known trails past towering waterfalls with a local guide who knows everything about every bit of flora and fauna in the region. Visiting temples, from roadside shrines to getting blessings from monks at grand, opulent otherworldly structures. 

 

Then there are the elephants. We get to spend half a day walking, feeding and bathing with these gentle giants, rescued from days of forestry work, or hauling tourists on their backs. Now they live in elephant luxury, shown nothing but love by the wardens and visitors to this beautiful park. Bathing an elephant is genuinely an experience like no other!


location

Your trip begins in Chiang Mai, the northern capital of Thailand. The tour guide will pick you up from the Chiang Mai Gate Hotel in the city at 10 am and transfer you out of town to get the tour started properly. After getting to know your Tuk-Tuk, you will head out to explore the area, staying in the beautiful little town of Mae Wang for a couple of nights. From here you will head up to Doi Inthanon where your rustic accommodation by this beautiful mountain allows you to easily explore this area on foot. From here you head to Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Song and finally finishing up in Pai before heading back down to Chiang Mai to finish off your thrilling northern tour.
