Ecotourism is the current 'buzz' word for many travelers. What is ecotourism? For Thailand Ecotourism, it means touring with the utmost appreciation for the environment with the highest concern for its preservation. It means not using words like 'pristine' to describe destinations that are nice, but by no means actually pristine.
Every aspect of our tours strive to minimize our impact on the fragile ecosystems that we visit. The preservation of the environment takes priority over business profits. Our specialty is getting away from other tour groups.
Even in popular destinations like Phang Nga Bay, it is still easy to experience solitude if you know where to go. We offer programs that allow you to intimately experience the wildlife, birds, wild edible plants, the jungle, and mountains of Southern Thailand from the comfort and convenience of a traditional canoe, up the face of a rock, or on foot as you hike through stunning Phang Nga Province.
The peace and tranquility of a canoe is the absolute best way to experience the waters of Thailand's national parks. We have the only fleet of real sit-inside kayaks in the region. Comfort, speed, stability, and efficiency are the hallmarks of traditional sit-inside kayaks. Guests get to paddle their own kayak; guides don't do the paddling for you.
We don't bother applying meaningless ecotourism awards, instead, we live our lives and run our tours with the preservation of the environment as the highest priority. Safety is, of course, also at the top of our priority list. We spend a lot of time, energy, and money learning the best practices in accident avoidance as well as how do deal with medical care. Our safety record is perfect. Furthermore, we are a highly certified tour operator.
Tailor-made Thailand Trekking Tours
Thailand Ecotourism offers trekking trips in Khao Sok National Park and Phang Nga Province. We appreciate the small world and the best way to experience it is on foot. The insect world in Thailand is extremely interesting. Combination canoeing and trekking offers you the best chance of seeing both the big stuff and the little stuff. It's all available in Southern Thailand.
If you enjoy trekking, you owe it to yourself to give canoeing a try. You could take any trail in any woodland or mountain in Southeast Asia and have a fair chance of seeing wildlife. Then again, you could also paddle a canoe and see things up close without having to be concerned about leeches, snakes, spiders, and the other aspects of land-based nature appreciation.
We specialize in tours to all of the best destinations in Southern Thailand, including the less-visited parts of Phang Nga Bay and Khao Sok National Park. The abundance and variety of wildlife there is truly amazing.Thailand wildlife In addition to paddling tours in Khao Sok, you can go rock climbing, mountain climbing, and hiking.
