Check our Facebook page via the link at the bottom of this page (you don't have to be a FB member to view) for 1 and 2 Day trip departures and river levels for the 2 and 5 hour Black and White Water Adventures. You will need to be either staying at Cave Lodge or in Soppong the night before departure for the 1 and 2 Day trips. Usual departure times for the 2 and 5 hour Black and White Water Adventures are 10 AM and 2 PM or whenever it suits you.
If you would like to go on one of our 1 or 2 Day Kayaking Adventures and have a date in mind you can email us and put you details on our Facebook page to link up with other interested people as we have a 6 person minimum on these longer trips. For 2-5 hour trips starting at the Lodge, you can just turn up and if the river is not too low (check our Facebook page for latest river level info) we will arrange a trip to suit your timeframe, budget, skill, and interests.
The mountain rivers of Northwest Thailand are perfect for white water kayaking. We use top quality inflatable 2 person kayaks, and international standard safety equipment. We maintain an impeccable safety record. Our guests wear internationally approved, pro-fit (not one size fits all) buoyancy vests. No experience is necessary, just a sense of adventure. Internationally accredited kayakers train all guides, and all trips include boat handling and safety instructions.
Before you book a rafting trip, phone or email us to find out what extra fun you could be missing out on. We specialise in kayaking, which is twice as much fun as rafting. You don't have to be a passive passenger in a big raft, being told what to do by the guide; you can easily learn how to paddle your own boat , read the river and run the rapids, but if you do not feel confident enough then ride with one of our expert guides. We descend the same rivers as the big commercial rafting companies, plus we have rivers and routes that only we can run. Whether you have only a few hours to spare or two days, we guarantee you will enjoy kayaking with us.
Trips range from a 2 hour Black and White water paddle passing through an awesome cave to 1 and 2 Day Wilderness Adventures. Prices start as low as 650 Baht per person. People regularly tell us their kayak trip was the highlight of their Thailand travels.
