This was our 5th white water rafting experience, the very first time and a memorable one being in 2005 in Bali on this very same river - The Ayung. It is as a consequence of this experience we chose to return to Bali and partook in this experience again last Monday afternoon. Fortunately for us, our hotel the Alila Ubud... More

Tip - if you have a GoPro I recommend taking it, I got great fun footage and so did others who had a GoPro. Tip 2: there are a lot of large steps down to the starting point of the river, and also up at the end, make sure your knees can take it! That's the most strenuous part of... More

Took around 2 hours rom ubud where we are staying however going to do rafting In the Telaga waja is much better as it's currently the dry season (we are here on our honeymoon and it's early September). We were picked up from our hotel by private car and driven to the mountains. Seemed really organised and safe which was... More

The rafting was fun but there are too many steps going down as well as coming up. My wife had felt giddy after climbing all these step so that spoiled the fun

Collected from our hotel which was good. Arrived at the centre - had the safety talk and kitted out with life jacket & helmet. Our first time white water rafting! From the moment we got in the raft it was fun. Our guides were brilliant. We all worked together and got going and we were away. My main achievement was... More

I did rafting last July 2014 with my boyfriend. They provide pick up for the guest. Rafting at Ayung river is more like cruise. Not so challenging. Because I did rafting before while my boyfriend never try at all, so we decide to try the one at Ayung river. While we did the rafting, we saw people building "soon to... More

Had a great time rafting the Telaga Waja with Sobek, great guide and we were delighted with the way the company was run and the friendliness of the guides. The scenery along this run is fantastic, and the drop at the dam at the end is a good climax after all the rapids. There's a long climb at the end... More

My second time rafting with Sobek wanted to take the family along so they could also enjoy this wonderful experience. Rafting 11kms along the Auyung River there is so much to see from Jungle to rock carvings, locals mining river sand for construction, wildlife, beautiful mountain Villa's and of course rapids and water falls. The guides are fantastic and really... More

If you are up for a little adventure Telaga Waja River is the place! Sobek offers rafting tours on both rivers Ayung and Telaga Waja .. Choose the second, it is further out but totally worth it ... it is wilder and the scenery is unbelievable!
