Bike, Raft & Cook in Chiang Mai

Perfect for active travelers and families, this tour starts and ends each day in the beautiful hotel (which is the former headquarters of Borneo Company, built from teak in the late 1800s. Now a luxury boutique lodge) in the heart of 700-year-old Chiang Mai, so you can maximize your time discovering the city's wonders by foot, bike, raft, and more!

This multisport tour offers you the opportunity to cycle through fruit trees to the ancient temples and ruins of Wiang Kum Kam, whitewater raft the rolling river of Mae Taman, and wander the exciting city streets of Chiang Mai. Exercise your skills in the kitchen with a traditional Thai cooking class, gaze out at a panoramic view of the region, and spend a night in a floating resort surrounded by forested mountains. Every evening you will discover different dining experiences from authentic dishes in riverside restaurants to traditional street food vendors to the culinary delights you cooked.

Good Eats

Discover the best of northern Thai cuisine each night with our Guide Curated Menus. Your guide team has found the best dIshes to try at each of the restaurants we visit at dinner time.

Perhaps some delicately fried morning glory with a seafood sauce. Or try some nam prick, a roasted Thai chili dip eaten with fresh vegies or pork skins. Discover Lanna dishes such a pork curry or Sai Ua, a spicy northern Thai sausage.

Good Gear

Pedalers provides Merida Speeders, a lightweight, flatbar, sport road bike. Bianchi Kuma mountain bikes are also available, but the roads are all nicely paved.

As a safe health measure, guests are asked to bring their own helmets and waterbottles for cycling. If necessary these can be purchased economically in Thailand.
