The route is very interesting and cuts across many interesting places but is extremely short at roughly 26 km. The bikes are in bad shape and for the money sobek charges they could really invest in some good bikes that are fit for purpose. The experience would have been good was it not for the poor quality of the bikes... More

Telaga Waja Rafting, organised by Sobek Rafting. 15 Km long. Great currents, great view and great experience. Don't worry about the organizer, they are professionals. They maintain to have their zero accident reputation until today.The guides are fun and friendly. You will not regret doing this, these guys are pro!

Having rafted quite a few times, we were very impressed with this company. From our prompt pick up, we were processed and kitted out with safety equipment quickly. The company took safety seriously and the briefing was clear. Our actual trip down the river was awesome. Our guide, Dharma, was very experienced and guided us expertly. The scenery was beautiful...

This is a fantastic experience for the whole family (our child is 10) that takes you on a guided bike ride down the side of a volcano through beautiful jungle, rice fields and quaint winding village streets. The ride is mostly downhill and took us three hours. Helmets and water are supplied and the bikes are all very well maintained.... More

Everyone pretty much had a blast on this half-day adventure. It starts with a hike down to the river. There are at least 500 uneven steps so gear yourself up to get hot and sweaty before reaching the boats. Once you are at the river, you get in your boats and learn four basic rowing techniques and commands and off... More

Went white water rafting with Sobek a couple years ago and I'm still telling all my friends about it. What an awesome experience, so exhilarating, great value for money and we felt in safe hands. We were all novice white water rafters at the start, but soon went 'with the flow' and throughout enjoyed it.

First, i thought that do the rafting in Bali was not fun. But after i experienced rafting with Bali Sobek, i would like to say "you'll regret for not coming here". Located in Ubud, Bali, Bali Sobek Rafting is one of the rafting places in Ubud. It's a good place to visit for people who love adventure. Three Words: Fun,... More

I am so scare of water rafting before joining this activity.. After this activity, I change my mind. It's pretty safe and relax along the river. We walk down from the hill around 20 mins before reaching the starting point. There are safety guidelines before we start the journey. The water rafting spent around 1 hour 15 mins. Pretty good...

I thought all of the rafting from every Rafting Company is the same, but NO. Sobek got the furthest starting points where the other company starts from the middle, which means we are spending more time on the river and more fun! The guide is awesome and super funny! Thank you Pak Putu! I will definitely recommend Bali Sobek to... More
