Travel the off beaten path in Bali and go white water rafting down the Telaga Waja River. Despite being in a quiet and secluded area, white water rafting is a wild (albeit safe) water sport that's perfectly suited for nature lovers and adrenaline junkies alike. You'll be assisted by a professional team, so there's nothing to worry about at all. Throughout the 14 kilometer course, you'll get to see beautiful panoramas of mountains, waterfalls, rice fields, and stone cliffs. Around Rendang Village, you'll be greeted by fresh mountain air and (if you're lucky) wild exotic birds. A delicious chef-prepared Indonesian buffet lunch will be waiting for you at the finish point.
Driver came earlier than pick up time and happy to wait for us. They agreed to pick us as Jimbaran and drop off at Ubud. Our luggage was kept on car safety.
The tour was incredible at Telaga Waija river (where is supposed more interesting than Ayung river). We were given equipments and 01 guide going with. At first we thought we will have to raft by ourselves, but then were drifted along with the river, 3 hours :))
Lunch provided was really good. There are toilets and changing room after rafting.
Overall this is an awesome experience that you must try in Bali!
Definitely the highlight of our 7 day Bali trip! Our assigned driver, Gunadi, was like an uncle to us so we decided to book him again for our separate Bali tour. Plus, our river guide, Madi, was too kind and was always smiling. It all the more made our grip amazing. Unlike the Cagayan de Oro River in the Philippines, Telaga Waja has more rapids and a leveled up excitement. Must try for water lovers!
This is one of our favorite experiences here in Bali. The rafting trip was great for beginners and very fun even if you’re not very athletic. Some of the helmets have the camera mount on it, so bring your action cameras. They also have dry bags for you to use so no need to bring your own.
The trip was broken into three segments. About ten minutes in, you’ll have to disembark and hike a short distance to let the boats drift down a shallow area, then there’s a break in the middle where they sell refreshments.
OMG! This is one of the Best activity I had in Bali! Our Guide was (I think) one of the best as our boat overtook majority of the boats who came before us! It was like a friendly race with other boats and it was fun! I was a bit apprehensive at first because I can’t swim but as soon as we got on the boat, all my worries disappeared and even during tumultuous rapids, I wasn’t worried because I felt safe with our guide (I forgot his name though 😔). Definitely the highlight of my trip to Bali and will definitely do it over and over again!☺️
This activity is worth every single cent. This is my second time white water rafting and I must say that this is a lot more exciting than my previous experience.
The 2.5 hours start off deceptively relaxing but the fun starts after 5 minutes and continues on for the rest of the experience. Perhaps a testament to how fun and exciting the whole activity is, my group didn’t have to paddle at all after the first 5 minutes.
This is a definite must try for anyone visiting Bali and looking for a (safe) adrenaline rush!
Fantastic day out! Our guide, Wayan was very friendly and fantastic at steering. We has a lot of fun with him as our guide. So much so, that we tipped him at the end. Didn't receive a confirmation from the company but the pickup service arrived promptly. It took us about 1.5hrs to get to the river from Ubud. And then the actual rafting is about 2.5-3hrs. I went with my 65yr old parents and all 3 of us had a blast. There were people of all ages, including kids. It's not a lazy river ride which is what the Ayung River rafting sounds like. But that's why Telaga Waja river is way more fun. Spotted people on the Bali Sobek raft tour as well, and honestly, there was no difference between BTR and Bali Sobek. Except that Bali Sobek costs twice the price.
