Combine discovering the jungle trails, secret waterfalls, and stunning hilltop views of Phuket with the excitement of off-roading by ATV riding.
What’s So Awesome About It
Hop on a powerful quad bike and explore the luscious jungle and inland hills of Phuket on a guided tour. On an All Terrain Vehicle vast, private nature parks are yours to explore. From the stunning vistas at the top of Big Buddha hill to hidden jungle safari camps and secluded waterfalls. If you’re looking for adventure in the great outdoors, ATV riding is a cool way to get your adrenaline fix.
What’s The Catch
Part of the fun of ATV riding is powering through puddles and exploring on the barely beaten, very muddy track. This means you’ll probably get pretty dirty in the process, so make sure you’re not wearing your favourite clothes.
Things To Keep In Mind
Prior riding experience isn’t necessary for most tours. The minimum age to ride ATVs varies from company to company and can be as young as 8 years or as old as 12 years. ATVs are forbidden by Thai law to operate on public roads, so make sure you choose a company that complies with this legislation.
Where You Can Book It From
There are loads of vendors and companies operating ATV rides on Phuket. Most travel agents in all the major towns and a lot of big-name hotels can book a tour for you. One of the best known on the island is Phuket ATV Tour who have a private park based on the east coast of Phuket. They have pick-up points in Kamala, Patong, Kata, and Phuket Town.
If you’re not comfortable driving an ATV yourself and just want to sit back and watch the scenery go by, you can choose to be a passenger.
