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.
