Full description
Before starting your activity, a safety orientation and state-of-the-art helmets and life vests are provided. The first 3-hour ATV (all-terrain vehicle) trip is set up for beginner to intermediate-level drivers. It covers roughly 40-kilometers in distance and is a mix of road and off-road jungle terrain. It’s well-suited for those that would like to explore the local countryside and see it a different way. After the ATV, the 10-kilometer white-water rafting will begin. It's broken into 3 sections. The first section is a great warm-up where you learn skills practising with the guides and getting used to the boat. This section has one class III and is probably the most beautiful section of the river with the encroaching jungle offering lots of shade. The second section is action-packed with rapids and is probably the best white water in Thailand. Most of this section is class III and IV rapids. The third section lets up in the beginning giving you some time to relax before entering a great class III rapid, leading into a short continuous section of rapids that goes almost all the way to the take out where the camp is. Towels and shower facilities will be provided when you finish before heading home. Make sure you bring a second set of dry clothes so you can ride home comfortablly.

The 3 hour ATV ride is perfect for beginners and intermediates. It's a little slow for advanced riders looking for an adrenaline rush. Not a criticism - just an observation for everybody. The elephant park scenery stop is beautiful and the waterfall trek was good fun. We took the 2 person/3 person inflatable kayaks with a guide in each one vs the full raft into the river. This is what they use during low water season. I've used both kinds of rafts on the water before. The inflatables are WAY more fun. I recommended they offer single seat inflatables to more advanced guests. Those types of craft are the most fun.

The driver and guides were all wonderful! I both learned a lot, saw a lot, and had an adventure of a life time. The water was low so we white water kayaked instead which was perfect as the raft wouldn’t have worked between some of the tight places. Enjoyed my time immensely!

Wir wurden super pünklich abgeholt und hatten das Glück einer kompletten Privatentour mit jeweils zwei Guides die mega waren. Sie waren sehr nett, bemüht und offen für all unsere Fragen. Nach der ATV Tour bekamen wir noch einen Erfrischung an einem Wasserfall mit Rutsche was der grönnende Abschluss war und den Staub von der Offroadtour wegwischte. Unsere beiden verlorenen Gopros darin wurden nach prompter Beschaffung einer Taucherbrille auch wieder gefunden. Nochmals Danke!!! Danach gab es ein super Mittagessen bevor wir zum Rafting aufbrachen. Leider war der Wasserpegel an einigen Stellen sehr niedrig, was der Unterhaltung aber nicht geschadet hatte. Jeder von uns saß in einem zweier Kanu mit Guide, welche uns super und mit viel Humor durch die Stromschnellen führten. An heiklen Stellen standen weitere Guides die sich darum kümmerten, dass wir auf Kurs blieben. Kann jedem, der Spaß an Action hat diese Tour empfehlen. Super gemacht 8adventures! wir haben uns sehr wohl bei euch gefühlt
