What To Expect

The Hsiukuluan River provides some of Taiwan's best rafting, challenging participants with a range of rapids to navigate. The rapids are a reasonable level for beginners, but swift enough to provide a thrill. The varied route will have you transitioning between paddling ferociously, holding tight as you plunge down a rapid and sitting back to appreciate the spectacular scenery you're passing through. You'll journey through rocky ravines with a backdrop of impressive mountainous scenery before ending on the coast of the Pacific Ocean. Take your pick of raft types for varying degrees of comfort and excitement! Run by a company with years of experience and led by a friendly professional instructor, safety is paramount—but they don't skimp on the fun!

    Really nice experience! It was well organized and all the staff was friendly and professional. We enjoyed awesome senario beside the river, but it was a little pity that we didn’t bring the camera or cell phone to catch the view. Really recommend this to you!
  • Siew Kian 1 Jun 2018
    Fun and the view is amazing! Recommend everyone to try this in Hualien!

    This was a great activity to do in Hualien. It was a smooth booking through Klook as the rafting company contacted me through WhatsApp and email the day before the activity. The rafting company is not an English speaking company. But the staff are friendly to foreigners. Luckily I found a group of guys to help translate and also a great group to raft with! The rafting is structured as a huge group that departs at the same time. Each raft can hold up to 8-10 people. You just join a group to make your raft 8. There is A LOT of splashing and water fights between rafts. It’s so hot and humid that you’d want to get wet. The river is very long (also to mention that there is very low water in May). I did the 11:00 tour. Was picked up at 9:00, then it took an hour and a half ride to the river rafting starting point. We ate our provided lunch from the rafting company, rented water shoes, got our life vests and cute/funny hats, watched an orientation video, got some more raft instructions, and finally got into the river around 12:30. To make the raft experience faster, there are motorized boats to push/pull yours and others thru the river, which is super fun. We didn’t finish the river til 3:45pm. Then we took a quick shower/rinse then headed back onto the bus to Hualien. It was a great day! Would recommend if you’d like to have some fun in the water.

    I felt so sorry for the lady who said she didn't like the experience because of the splash. Splashing is not only a good way to bond with other participants (to be honest, rowing and the view alone is too boring for a 4 hours ride), it is also essential to keep us from dehydrated under the hot sun. maybe those who doesn't want to be splashed should opt for some calmer river cruise instead.

    I signed up with the expectation of an intense workout in beautiful surroundings. I was disappointed. Our tour of 3 rafts were accompanied by 2 speedboats. Soon after boarding the raft, it was apparent that the vast majority of participants is not physically fit and mentally alert enough to navigate the course on their own, and the speedboats to push or pull the rafts downstream. Most of the participants were much more adapt at water fights than paddling, and proceeded to splash each other with water the whole 4 hours. The organisers joined in the splashing by revving the enginees of the speedboats, heading straight for the rafts, and turning just before collision. As a result I was (unnecessarily) freezing cold the whole way. All in all I paddled at most for 20 minutes throughout the 4 hours, and didn't even get to enjoy the scenery in peace due to the constant water fights. I am giving it 3 stars because it is probably a good activity if you don't mind getting very wet and not being able to get a good without. But if you want to actually raft, consider organising your own tour.

    Weather was bad and river low but we had a lot of fun ! We loved this rafting experience in Taiwan.
  • THI VAN ANH 15 Jan 2018
    The activity was canceled one day before because there were not enough people joining the tour. I was informed of the cancelation and am happy with the service

    We had an incredible time white water rafting! None of the guides spoke English, but we were able to communicate with body language and simple words. The safety video was available in English so we felt prepared before we got on the boat.
  • Chong 25 Dec 2017
    Journey was very long to the river. Rapid is not strong and needed aid of speed boats. Not recommended.
  • Sharon Lay Ming 12 Dec 2017
    There was a mix-up with the meeting time, which was moved up from 11am to 9am. But the rafting company was able to wait for us to arrive. The river journey itself is quite long - we set off abt 10.45am and finished abt 1pm. Altho the rapids in December are quite tame, there were moments of excitement, and the scenery is beautiful...our family enjoyed the experience. Wetsuits are provided, so it was not too cold. Lunch is also provided.
