Best deals on Zip Line Canopy Tour Packages in Chiang Mai - Overview & Comparison


Last edited: September 02, 2017 at 15:44:51

Chiang Mai is an excellent place to do a Zip Line Canopy adventure tour. In the green hills and mountains around Chiang Mai, you can still find pristine (rain) forests with giant trees, away from civilization but only an hour's drive out of town.
If you're tired of standard tourism but instead seek some more adventure, try a Zip Line Canopy adventure tour.

There are about 7 companies in Chiang Mai offering an exciting flight adventure that you won't forget, especially if you have to get back to a boring office job wink after your holiday. Some travellers even plan their trip all around a ZIP Line Canopy tour.

HOW TO PICK THE BEST ZIP LINE TOUR FOR YOU?

Don't worry, we did all the research for you, and we summarize it here for you with the best deals available in the market.

The pioneer ZIP Line tour operator was Flight of the Gibbon. It is still the biggest and now also offers packages in Pattaya and Cambodia. The success of Flight of the Gibbon quickly attracted many competitors.

Most of these operators offer similar experiences, although there are differences. A good way to select the best package for you is by the number of platforms and ziplines, this is an indication of both the quality and quantity of the fun and excitement you can get, and compare that with the price offered.
Some operators offer extras, such as sky bridges and spiral stair cases, bicycling in the air, and so on, but that is all secondary to the main thrill you want to go for: hanging on a ZIP line and flying through the forest like a bird or monkey. The number of platforms and ZIP lines is also a good indication of the extras offered, they are roughly added proportionally to the package.
There are probably some differences with regard to extras.

HOW SAFE IS IT?

Doing adventure sports in Thailand is generally okay, but safety procedures are often less than what you can expect in more developed countries. If safety procedures are left too much to Thai staff to follow without strict foreign supervision, there are more risks of injury. Unfortunately, the maipenrai attitude can have serious impacts then.
Not all incidents are reported in the news, some are kept silent.
Let us know if you have experienced any safety issues. When know that an operator failed in some way with regards to safety, we don't advertise them anymore for 5 years.
An example of a fatal incident happened in 2015 by Skyline Adventure.
