Ayung River Rafting in Bali

Whitewater Rafting in Ubud

Ayung River rafting in Bali offers an exciting day out at the location where the island’s white water rafting adventure scene was first introduced. As Bali’s longest and largest river, Ayung River and its rafting offer a thrilling pastime that also offers sightseeing opportunities of Central Bali’s upland, where you get to cool off under a waterfall, wade through or jump into crystal-clear freshwater pools, and catch the occasional sight of exotic birds and wildlife.

The Ayung River rafting valley location lies northwest of the Ubud main hub, and the river runs down an approximate 75km, where different white water rafting operators take their various starting and finish points. Some take off at the Petang village, roughly an hour’s drive from Denpasar and others further up north in Campuhan, passing by unique bat caves in the valley. Overall, the white water rafting adventure lets you enjoy Bali’s real natural beauty while sharing the fun and thrills with friends.

Ayung River rafting in Bali comprises class I and II rapids, with water levels fluctuating at different times throughout the year, but it is suitable for all experience levels. Usually, the journey is a mix of paddling action and steady cruising – just after you wind through among Central Bali’s most verdant landscapes and relax to enjoy the view, another of the random rapids in the route thrusts you and your team into some more fun and action.

As a pack of four on a rubber raft led by one tour guide, you paddle through foam and dodge boulders and various obstacles in between calmer checkpoints. At other times, it can be a total contrast, steadily cruising downstream throughout the whole tour that requires no paddling at all. The route takes you through the valley that is lined with many farming villages and some of Bali’s most beautiful boutique resorts, such as the Royal Pita Maha. Several white water rafting operators in cooperation with the local villagers have even added gorgeous features to the sightseeing route, only visible to rafters, such as an episode from the Ramayana epic carved into a rock face.

Sobek, one of the leading adventure and white water rafting operators in Bali, offers its two-hour ride in an Ayung River rafting tour led by well-trained guides and assisted by professional staff. The tour usually includes a half hour preparation with leading safety equipment and a technical and safety briefing. You are recommended to bring an extra set of clothes and to wear light clothing and sunscreen. On every trip they supply a water resistant protective bag to contain all your valuables. At the end of the white water rafting tour, there are clean and well-maintained shower facilities and changing rooms providing fresh towels, and lunch is served on its terrace river café with gorgeous views.
