This is great fun and it seems to go all too quick the 11km's winding down the Ayung River. The morning is the best time to go as it can get quite hot and sticky up there in the afternoon. I took my 10 year old son and he absolutely loved it and wanted bigger Rapids next time. We had... More

The kids had a ball, came back... More

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
