Date    

     Our next planned tour will be in March 2025.

     This tour is divided into two parts - covering two distinct geographical areas.

     We start the first part of the tour with three days in Chiang Mai - which will help you acclimatize after your flights, and then travel further north, where we will explore some of the rich orchid habitats to be found there.

     On the second part of the tour, we will explore the mountains and forests to the north of Chiang Mai. Here there are many interesting orchid habitats and a wide range of species can be found growing. 

     The length of the tour is ten nights. The tour dates are not yet confirmed but as with past tours it will be conducted in March.

     If the dates don’t work out exactly for you, whether due to airline timetables or other reasons, you can always arrange to arrive a few days before the tour starts, or depart a few days after the tour has finished.


The itinerary

     The tour is based on seeing orchids growing and flowering in their natural wild habitat - but also includes other orchid-related activities such as visits to orchid farms, plant markets, and botanical gardens.

     Realizing that members who have traveled to Thailand may also want the opportunity to see some of the country's other attractions - we also include some interesting cultural excursions.   

     These additional excursions, along with ample opportunity for souvenir shopping, and not forgetting the delicious local food all add up to give you an exciting and enjoyable holiday. 

     We have now updated this website, and have added several slide shows - that we hope will give you a good idea of the tour's activities, and what can be seen. Once you open the galleries, a slide show will automatically start; if required, this can be paused by the given controls.

Summary

     This tour is a compilation of the most rewarding days from all our previous tours - and our intention is to make it the most rewarding tour to date.    

     You will be met at the airport on arrival and escorted throughout the tour. We aim to make everything as easy and comfortable as possible for you. All you have to do is enjoy yourself.   

     We have been conducting these specialized orchid tours for twenty-five years and the experience and knowledge gained from the previous tours ensures that you will have an interesting and informative holiday - and of course more importantly see plenty of wild orchids in flower.

     Nothing compares to the experience of being there. The sights, sounds, and scents can only truly be appreciated by experiencing them - and for orchid growers, there is nothing quite like the excitement of trekking through a tropical forest and suddenly finding a beautiful exotic orchid in full bloom. 

     A comprehensive tour information pack is available and can be sent to you by email. This will give you a lot more information about the tour including a detailed day-to-day activity guide.
