ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
Improve your river running skills on this two-day kayaking course near Chiang Mai.

Go from clueless to confident creek paddler on this intensive kayaking course on the mighty Mae Taeng River. Learn the basics of whitewater kayaking and playboating, building your practical and theoretical knowledge on one of northern Thailand’s best grade III-IV rivers.

Location
This course is located in Sop Kai between Chiang Dao Nature Preserve and Huai Nam Dang National Park. A private jungle camp and homestay located 75 km from Chiang Mai city center, the Mae Taeng river is renowned for its seasonal rapids, waves and drops that gives it a creeky feeling, great for boosting your technical or play boating skills!

Activity
Head to the rural village of Sop Kai for this two-day kayaking course on the Mae Taeng River. Offering whitewater kayaking lessons from a private jungle camp located on the banks of the Mae Taeng River, groups are organised according to age and ability – ensuring you learn different techniques from basic strokes to advanced river running skills. Organised in small groups, work with a kayaking instructor to practise your wet exits, paddling strokes and boating technique – moving onto faster sections of the river when you can try hands on river runs and skills like boat spins, strokes, leans, U-turns, eddy turns and draws. By day two, you should be navigating fun rapids and whitewater – giving you a chance to develop and refine your new kayaking form with your instructor.

Accommodation
During the course, you will be staying at the jungle camp in Sop Kai – a traditional village that offers fully catered accommodation with twin and double beds in rustic cabins on the banks of the Mae Taeng. The area is home to many ethnic hill tribes as well as large populations of domestic elephants and other wildlife. A rural location with shared toilet facilities, please note that there is no TV, WIFI or phones – just you and nature.
