The Exciting Adventure of Rafting – Ride through Fast-Slowing Waters!

Would you like to get to know the art of bobbing about in a boat? All nature lovers and thrill seekers alike can tap into the power of nature through an exciting rafting experience.

About

‘Rafting’ is a recreational outdoor activity that requires paddling a raft through frothing and fast-flowing waters. Even though rafting is a thrilling experience, it also needs a certain degree of technical expertise and physical stamina. The first whitewater rafting experience was recorded in 1842 by Lieutenant John Fremont along the Platte River. Now, this sport has undergone a huge change from the boat design, equipment to techniques.

Water class

Also known as the International Scale of River Difficulty, the water class classification system is designed to make the rafters aware of the conditions of the particular stretch of whitewater. There are six categories ranging from class 1 to class 6. The lower end of the scale, class 1 represents small rough areas whereas class 6 indicates the opposite of it; a real possibility of danger!

Techniques

Looking to add a bit of variety to your water rafting experience? Specific techniques like punching, high-siding, low siding and ferrying are utilized by many rafters to manoeuvre through obstacles. If you are holidaying at a Seminyak Bali resort the likes of Anantara Seminyak Bali Resort, you’ll get the opportunity to navigate the longest river in Bali with an experienced travel guide.
