    Benefit from pickup at your hotel in Chiang Mai, and then take in stunning views of the countryside as you make your way towards the Chiang Dao mountain and Ping River.

    I liked the kayaks very much. Beautifull views, tranquile, you are pedalling by yourslef all the way (the kayaks are personal, not for pairs). Has a bit of asrenalin, but not too complex to handle. The cave was less intersting.

Danae looked after us very well from the beginning to the end of the day! Almost no tourists. Excursions without dead time. Accompaniment to pampering, and kindness. The good surprise was the sending of the photos of the day by email at the end of the day. I recommend this activity :) and thank you again to our instructor Danae. Mathieu, Diane, Romain
