Sobek Adventure was the first professional Adventure Company in Bali, Indonesia. Established in 1989, in history of over 26 years of ZERO accident operation on the river, Sobek has set the highest international standards in the rafting industry with no company even petting close. While starting as a small company on the Ayung riverbanks without facilities, it quickly grew into the most popular “activity” for tourists in Bali. After a couple of years, it was added Cycling trips, jungle trekking, village visits and 4×4 trips to repertoire. SOBEK’s guides are trained to the highest international standards in safety, first aid, rescue, and customer service. They undertake foreign-language training courses in a number of major languages, to ensure guests from all corners of the world are not only comfortable whilst SOBEK guests, but also are given in-depth safety briefings before embarking on one of the tours.

Sobek has been home to over 300 employees for a long time; many of them have worked for over 20 years. Considering the fact that a river guide needs at least 10 years’ experience and continuous training on the river to become great in his field… Sobek is proud to have the oldest guides on the river, not the boldest ones… That’s why it doesn’t use untrained freelance river guides to reduce operational costs. Sobek takes care of staff, so they can take care of the guests! Last year Sobek continues their green efforts by replacing all their facilities with comfy Unique friendly bamboo architecture… it feels better, smells better and now the buildings use less electricity.


SOBEK’s two hour, visually spectacular rafting trip down the Ayung River is made even more enjoyable by the secure feeling of using the SAFEST rafting company available for the trip. This adventure for guests of all ages is a mix of wild excitement, breath taking views and well-guided, informative, sightseeing. As guests carving through some of Bali’s most appealing landscape, the Ayung River provides a thrill that begins the moment that push of from the riverbanks. As switch between Class II and III rapids, guests will wind through deep valleys with cascading waterfalls and towering cliffs of prehistoric significance. On the more leisurely stretches through tropical forests guests will see Hindu shrines that are brightly decorated on ceremonial days of prayer.
