We went white water rafting on our last day in Bali. I am not much of a thrill seeker, and so was terrified at the thought. We went with a company called "Rejeki Ayung Rafting", on the Ayung River. Their normal price is $65US for adults, including transfers, lunch & showers. However, in our 2nd week in Bali we stumbled across a lovely tour guide who we used for absolutely everything from that day on. We have kept his contact details and will use him / recommend him highly. His company have a contract with the rafting company, and so if you go through him, it costs $30US per adult all inclusive and then the hire of him & his driver ($45 for 8 hours. The rafting takes only 2 hours, so for the rest of the time, he will take you wherever you want to go), working out at $105 for 2 adults with a whole day of exploring, rather than $130 for just the rafting.
Anyway, back to the rafting... a beautiful walk through rice paddies to the cliff at the edge of the river. The walk down the cliff is a bit tiring for those of us who aren't overly fit. Worth it once you get to the bottom though. The guides are lovely and talk you through everything before you all get in the raft. If you have a waterproof camera, take it! The scenery down here is just amazing! So untouched and beautiful. The rapids aren't very big, so this track is really good for beginners like me. I wasn't scared at all. We did get thoroughly wet, although we managed not to fall out of the boat. We were on the river for just under 2 hours. The walk up the cliff at the other end was absolutely exhausting and was the only part I didn't enjoy... Must get fitter before we go back!
Once back up the top, we were given towels and plastic bags for our wet clothes and were shown to the showers. After cleaning ourselves up and changing, we were shown upstairs for lunch, which was an Indonesian buffet. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our first ever rafting experience and would recommend this company to everyone.
