Off Road Buggies & ATVs
If you're looking for a Chiang Mai tour or adventure of a different kind then our off-road buggy treks could be just what you're looking for.
You can drive or ride as a passenger in one of our all-terrain super-buggies or the latest CFMoto UTVs as our guides take you high into the jungle-covered hills of Chiang Mai. Its extreme fun and sure to test your nerve and driving skill.
Driving the buggies through the jungle is certainly fun but for many people the Chiang Mai scenery that few others ever get to see is just as big a thrill.
Off Road Trips
There are two off-road tour options. One lasts from one to one and a half hours and takes a route that is suitable for anyone that is competent driving a normal road car. The other trek takes at least two hours and goes over much more demanding terrain but should still be within the ability of most confident road drivers.
Whichever option you choose you will see some beautiful countryside and parts of Chiang Mai inaccessible by most means of transport.
Each tour starts in the X-Centre car park where drivers are briefed and kitted out with jumpsuits and crash helmets. The cars then head off in single file convoy formation following an X-Centre guide in the lead car.
The Advanced Off Road Trip
The advanced off-road tour takes around two hours. This trip goes through jungle trails that lead into the hills where Chiang Mai's hill-tribe people live. The terrain can be challenging at times and includes some steep inclines, water crossings and narrow hillside tracks.
Its all well within the capabilities of the buggies and experienced road drivers generally handle the conditions with ease but If a particular stretch proves too troublesome the guides are always ready to lend a helping hand.
Another feature of this trip is the stunning scenery and great views available from the highest points. Because of this there are plenty of pauses along the way to allow drivers to enjoy it to the full.
Note : ATVs are not used on this trip.
The Shorter Off Road Tour
Although the terrain covered in the shorter trips is a step or two down in difficulty to the advanced trip, there is still plenty of rugged stuff to enjoy. We have a good range of routes available and endeavour to choose the best fit for the drivers' abilities.
These trips take around one to one and a half hours and can lead through jungle trails, banana plantations and the lower parts of the densly forested Chiang Mai hills.
The Off Road Vehicles
Our 2-seater buggies all have rugged independent suspension and automatic gearboxes making them very easy to drive. Light and nimble with a low centre of gravity its amazing the tough terrain and steep inclines they can take on making them perfect for Chiang Mai’s jungle trails.
For safety, the buggies have full roll cages and racing style seats with four-point harnesses. As an additional precaution all occupants are issued with quality crash helmets.
Any of the vehicles can be used in our Moto park as an alternative to taking part in an organised tour.
The CFMoto Terracros 625 and 800 buggies offer a perfect mix of power, comfort, agility and fun. Thanks to their compact dimensions, generous ground clearance (300 mm) and the low weight they are able to deal effortlessly with any type of conditions. Their off road abilities are further enhanced by the massive wheels and big knobbly tyres.
Ergonomics are also superb being equipped with adjustable sport seats and a tilt-steering wheel for driver and passenger comfort.
1000cc Super Buggies
The X-Centre also has a number of 1000cc "Super Buggys" available. Though an older generation compared to the CFMoto machines, these buggies still drive beautifully and have the power to handle the absolute toughest terrain challenges.
We have several ATVs of varying size and power to choose from such as the grunty CFMoto C-Force 450, the agile Ranger 200 as well as smaller machines rideable by youngsters.
Our fleet is constantly being updated so don't be surprised to see even more options when you arrive !
Group Adventure Trips
The X-Centre has a big fleet of buggies so can accommodate large groups wanting to share an off-road adventure.
The cars travel along the trails following a guide in the lead car. In the trailing car there will be another guide ready to assist should any drivers experience difficulties.
Adventure Trails to Suit You
We have a number of different adventure trails available with varying degrees of difficulty.
Normally the route chosen will depend on variables such as weather conditions and the required duration of the tour. However, if you wish, you can discuss the route options beforehand with the X-Centre staff so that the best choice to suit the members of the driving party can be made.
Off Road Fun for Non-Drivers
The buggies are two-seater so non-drivers can travel as passengers.
Two people sharing the adventure can make the experience even more memorable as there's sure to be lots to talk and laugh about along the way.
