As we have selectively planted trees at Fern Resort we are proud to have several rare birds as our visitors up in the trees! The Green Leafbird, Hoopoes, the Slaty-backed Forktail, Bulbulbs and the White-rumped Shama are commonly seen, as well as the black-hooded Oriole here in the picture! A great experience is a trip into the Mae Surin Nationalpark south of the Fern Resort, where the Great Hornbill lives.
Enjoy the beautiful nature of Mae Surin National Park and hike on the nature trails behind Fern Resort!
Follow our lovely guide dogs - for example to the beautiful Mae Sakut Waterfall and enjoy a splash of fresh mountain water!

You can start directly from Fern Resort to go on a trek lasting a few hours or even several days. Visit hilltribe villages like Ban Nam Hoo, Ban Huai Hee or Ban Huai Goong, where you can learn more about the daily life of the Karen. The way they live in harmony with the surrounding forest is a great experience for everyone! You will be introduced even more to the community-based tourism, we follow with our concept.
In the area of Mae Hong Son there are also Shan and Hmong villages you can visit. We cooperate with very good and skilled local tour guides, who can accompany you and share their knowledge of culture and traditions with you.
There is always something to watch and to see around our rice fields! You are very welcome to join the work in the field - try to plant or harvest rice yourself!
Take a mountain-bike and explore the area around the Fern Resort cycling! From here you reach for example the boat station at Ban Huai Dua at the Pai River within half an hour, from where you can go on your own on a longtail boat to visit a village of the Padong longneck women and ride through the jungle on the back of an elephant! Not only the town itself, also the surrounding valleys along the rivers are beautiful and quite easy to explore by bike.
