A visit to Bali normally includes an itinerary of day trips and activities and rafting is one of the fun family adventures on offer when visiting the island.
We took the two teenagers to Bali for a week in January 2023 and included a combination day out tour of rafting and cycling - this was definitely one of the highlights of our week and an adventure we all enjoyed.
We have been rafting in Bali a few times before, but this time we went with Bali Hai Tours who took us for an adventure at Telaga Waja river. In the past we have been out of Ubud down the Ayung river - this river to the East of Bali was far more adventurous!
As it was rainy season there was plenty of water flowing down the river which made for some fun moments on the two hour 18km down stream adventure.
It was definitely all hands on deck paddling, ducking to go under low bridges and hanging on when we took on a 4-metre drop! At the 6km mark we stopped at a waterfall for some photos and the chance for a bintang and a rest - this activity is not for anyone wanting a peaceful paddle down a stream.
If you are looking for a day out for your trip to Bali - this is something you can add to the itinerary for the whole family to enjoy.
Have you been rafting in Bali? Which did you prefer Ayung of Telaga Waja river?
