Green Trails is the traditional trekking and outdoor company of Chiang Mai. We respect nature, local traditions and local culture. We promote ecofriendly activities such as trekking, hiking, rafting and cycling. We try to conserve natural biodiversity and local cultural traditions and values. We are about meaningful encounters with nature and people. We prefer to go with small groups to minimize our impact. We have an extensive code of conduct concerning our behavior and impact in communities. We are a partner of Travelife. This is a leading training, management and certification initiative for tourism companies committed to reach sustainability. We recycle our waste as much as possible and try to create awareness about the environment.

Chiang Mai on Three Wheels
http://www.chiangmaionthreewheels.com This is our not-for-profit project. Chiang Mai on Three Wheels offers tours by samlor (aka rickshaw or cyclo) that support the drivers and aims to preserve the samlor as a means of transportation in Chiang Mai. There are less than 70 samlors left in Chiang Mai and we hope to contribute to the preservation of the samlor as a cultural heritage of Chiang Mai.
