What you can expect
Day 1: Get picked up outside your Chiang Mai hotel and board a private vehicle to reach the Pai town (3 hour's drive) Stop by our rafting headquarters in Pai, and check into your room. A lunch will be served before you can head out into the Pai valley to do some exploring on your own. In town, pick up last-minute toiletries or browse the shops for souvenirs. Dinner is on your own, and there is a wide choice of local and western restaurants. Overnight at hotel (tourist class).
Day 2: Start your day with a hearty breakfast, and then go over a few basic safety lessons and get a crash course in proper paddling technique before you head out onto the river. On the shore, help launch the boat and then take your first strokes of the day as you start navigating down the Pai's swift currents. Stop off on a quiet stretch of riverbank to refuel with a delicious lunch, and then continue on to reach your camp for the evening.
After a filling dinner, retire to rustic wooden beds draped with mosquito nets to keep you comfortable while you fall asleep to the sounds of chattering jungle creatures.
Day 3: Fill up with a quick meal, don your life jacket, and then hit the river once again, cruising to your finishing point with a swimming and lunch stop on the way. When the nose of your raft hits the final shore, hop out and gather your things before grabbing a ride back to Pai or the Mae Hong Son airport, where daily flights depart back to Chiang Mai.
