Thailand

Ready to go?

Your Thailand expedition. Taste more, feel tropical.

Dreamt about lush tropical jungles, paradise beaches, temples, shrines, monks, motorbikes, eclectic culture and simply amazing food? All true. Standby for sensory overload, exploring the hustle and bustle of buzzing Bangkok. Discover the art of living deep in the jungle as you complete challenging treks that take you off the tourist trail, onto longboats and through hill tribe towns. Relax with friends on picture perfect beaches, visit grand palaces and ancient, abandoned temples. Experience the vibrant markets and excite your taste buds with Thailand’s famous street food.

The Thailand you think you know is just part of the Thailand you will experience on expedition. With opportunities to live alongside local communities, get involved in powerful initiatives to collaborate with skilled local labourers improving sanitation in schools, make living conditions more comfortable for the elderly or help put water piping into communities.

Some of the best bits

Join journey to freedom

Elephants were once commonly used in logging activities but since the ban in 1989 communities must now adapt to sustain their incomes and protect their animals. Visit the Elephant Nature Park to see a different model, where the Karen community and their elephants live side by side.

Conquer roaring rapids

Conquer roaring rapids. Experience a thrilling 9km descent through lush tropical jungle in Mae Nam Tang, Northern Thailand. No need for thermal wetsuits as the water is warm. Lush tropical jungle, exciting rivers, Thai smiles, a gourmet lunch, as well as the likelihood of spotting wild animals make this a pretty special encounter.

Find your zen

Calm your mind on a meditation retreat. Learn about Buddhist philosophy while being guided through Vipassana Meditation. A large majority of Thailand’s population practices Buddhism. This experience aims to offer mindfulness tools to teach us how to live in the moment, handle stress and stay in tune with our emotions.

Meet the chief

Learn how to live in the jungle from a pro. Team up with a hill tribe chieftain to take on this jungle adventure. Travel by long boat to natural hot springs and begin your trek through thick jungle, weaving through remote villages for a glimpse of authentic jungle life.

Soak up the sun

Snorkel off of one of Thailand’s most beautiful islands. Spend the day cruising around Ko Chang Island, exploring marine park reefs and relaxing on white sandy beaches. With it’s jungle-clad peaks, ‘Elephant’ Island retains a sense of remoteness whilst also offering plenty of adventure options and some souvenir shopping!

“Climbing up the Erawan National Park waterfall was honestly the most beautiful sight ever! We went swimming in the lakes with the fish and it was amazing.”
