Adventure Buffet

bike, hike, raft, cook, canoe in Chiang Mai

Our fixed-base tour of Northern Thailand is perfect for casual cyclists and families. Each day start and ends at the same beautiful hotel in the heart of 700-year-old Chiang Mai, so there’s no need to pack and unpack. Every day we set out to explore something new — be it mountain biking down Doi Suthep, rafting the Mae Taman, the ancient city of Wiang Kum Kam, or even a local Thai cooking class — returning at dusk to the luxurious comforts of a four-star hotel.

The best part, just like a buffet, you get to choose what you want to do from our selection of 14 different adventures. The worst part, only one per day, but that's OK because most of the activities take up most of the day anyway. Each trip is led by a local guide who specializes in the activity and area, so you are assured of being in experienced hands and Pedalers' Adventure Concierge is only a phone call away should you want to change something up.

Discover the enchanting city of Chiang Mai and it natural surroundings, while enjoying great outdoor activities and world renowned Thai cuisine.
