About the Half Day Afternoon Hug Elephant Sanctuary Tour

Take an early morning ride through the Thai countryside to the home of the elephants. Once you’ve arrived at the sanctuary, meet your Thai tour guide, who will teach you about the elephants’ behavior and history. Next is the part you’ve been waiting for: meet each elephant and win them over with their favorite snack.

Then it’s time to get dirty! Join the elephants for a playful mud spa and then cool off in the nearby river and scrub the elephants clean. Afterward, change into clean, dry clothes and have a Thai snack before relaxing on the drive back to your hotel in Chiang Mai.
