Hurtling Down Frothing Rapids on a Raft

Uncategorized | Written By, NOW! BALI |

Being in Bali’s main drags can at times wear you off, especially if you are holidaying on the island for a period of more than two weeks. And so heading to a river where there’s nothing but the soothing, rhythmic sound of the water and the warm sun to caress your skin is a rewarding timeout from the island’s hectic party scenes. Ayung River, notably the most scenic river on the island, is a place where you can feel relaxed, surrounded by serene nature yet, whilst at the same time, rush your adrenaline as you hurtle down frothing rapids on a raft. Grab your oars and get ready to rage with this exhilarating adventure on the spectacular Ayung River.

Being in Bali’s main drags can at times wear you off, especially if you are holidaying on the island for a period of more than two weeks. And so heading to a river where there’s nothing but the soothing, rhythmic sound of the water and the warm sun to caress your skin is a rewarding timeout from the island’s hectic party scenes.

Ayung River, notably the most scenic river on the island, is a place where you can feel relaxed, surrounded by serene nature yet, whilst at the same time, rush your adrenaline as you hurtle down frothing rapids on a raft. Grab your oars and get ready to rage with this exhilarating adventure on the spectacular Ayung River. 

Whether you are 5 or 65, a natural or a novice, white water rafting in Bali is safe, fun and a breathtaking experience to be enjoyed by the whole family – especially if you do it with Bali Adventure Rafting by Bali Adventure Tours. Your safety is Bali Adventure Rafting’s first priority, and your enjoyment comes in a close second.

With Bali Adventure Rafting, the action starts when you launch into a 9.6 km river stretch, navigating through 35 class II and III rapids set to a backdrop of wild unspoiled rainforest, towering gorges and magnificent rice paddy terraces. Professionally trained and experienced guides pilot safety-equipped rafts through the best river runs, dramatic drops and spectacular waterfalls to make your rafting ride a fun and awesome experience. 

Bali Adventure Rafting uses only Incepts and AVON rafts with foot cups and hand ropes fitted to all, as recommended by the World White Water Rafting Association.  With seven sizes of jackets available, correct fitting is assured for every person. Aside from that, providing you with a 5-star service from the start to finish, Bali Adventure Rafting offers a fully computerized reception centre coupled with fast walk-through equipment outfitting and easy access to the river via safe, engineered steps, complete with hand rails and scenic viewing platforms.

And so, go out there and see what it takes. We’re telling you, it’s one of the most enjoyable ways to spend your holiday in Bali!

Note:

White Water Rafting tours in Bali are NOT all the same.  Some rivers are situated in various parts of the island and you may be required to spend up to 5 hours on return bus trips. The Ayung River, however, is located only one-hour drive from most tourist centers.  All rivers in Bali are class II to III but may rise to class IV in the wet season (November – March).
