River Tubing Down Bali’s Penet River

River Tubing Down
Bali’s Penet River

Wet, wild and wonderful; river tubing has become one of the latest experience for adrenaline
junkies, seeking a new kick. A 3.5-kilometre long stretch over the local Penet River
serves as the playground for half a day of nature-based water fun on Bali.


River tubing on Bali is the latest hype. Bobbing up and down, left and right around in small, inflatable rafts downstream one of Bali’s most challenging rivers follows the demand for more water-based adventure activities on the island.

Slightly different from white water rafting, river tubing adds a new level of fun and smiles when navigating as good as you can across a category two river through the green heart of the Island of Gods.

A morning pick-up from selected beaches and regions on Bali will bring you away from the tourism centres and deeper into the centre of Bali’s impressive natural beauty. Our starting point will be at the riverbanks at Sangeh, a small town just 25 kilometres from the capital Denpasar.

It is here where you will get your safety briefing from the team before hopping into the Penet River for 3.5 kilometres of water fun (the tour itself will take approximately 1.5 to 2 hours). Guests will be very focused on keeping their tube straight once taking off but will have ample time too to admire the natural splendour along the river banks. The real fun begins when small rapids and waterfalls are arriving on your path, but with more than adequate protection and solidly-constructed tubes, falling off the tube will only add more smiles to your face.

After reaching your final destination near a cave (exploration of this natural phenomenon is, of course, possible), we give you the chance to freshen up and head to our lunch address with views over the surrounding landscape. The restaurant served local Balinese yet delicious dishes which always have something to one’s liking. We end the day by thanking our hosts, the safety team for their assistance and head back from Sangeh to your booked hotel.
