You’ll often hear people rave about its sunsets and sunrises, beaches, rice fields and hills, but its amid these stunning creations that you can find some real thrill to satiate your adventurous spirit.
Canyoning is a popular adventure water activity in Bali, involving rappelling down waterfalls, jumping off rocky cliffs, skidding down natural water slides and zip lining across gorges to descend into a canyon. These are activities you can experience once-in-a-lifetime, and are a must-try in Bali’s luscious landscape.
Canyoning is quite popular in the Gitgit waterfall in Singaraja in Northern Bali, but there are numerous other locations where you can try it. The canyons offer varying levels of difficulty, and are operable almost throughout the year. There are four levels of difficulty, each with its own activities and segments, and requiring a basic level of physical strength.
If you are physically fit enough you can opt for the mid-level canyoning adventure, which will take you on a three-hour escapade of jumping, sliding, rappelling and swimming across different waterfalls, and culminate with a satisfying local lunch.
For every adventure, participants are put through a 30-minute training and instruction session, with some practice on a mini-setup. The operators provide full body float suits and special anti-skid shoes to every person, and all belongings and valuables to safely stow away in the office.
With your pulses start to race, you will be loaded into an open jeep for a drive down to the starting point. From there, a 20-minute trek will take you to the Gitgit stream in the middle of a thick forest, and your excitement started to build.
Step by step, you will be moved further into the forest as the thrill began to increase. You will skid down a 6-foot slide, rappel down a 10-foot waterfall and then jump about 10 feet down into a pool from the top of waterfall. The raw, untouched beauty of the forest mingled with the intensity of the activities was a rare adrenaline rush.
The activities become more challenging as the forest got denser, until you are battling waterfall jumps at 23 feet, slides at 16 feet and rappelling at almost 70 feet! Every few minutes the view would open up to reveal the sky and a thunderous waterfall calling for you to cross it.
The next few activities are similar to those in the first leg, and equally thrilling. All it takes is a basic level of fitness, enthusiasm and a willingness to push you, well, basically off a cliff! It’s the feeling of accomplishment at the end that makes the whole experience worth it, as does the stunning beauty and adrenaline rush.
The adventure then come to an end the same way it is started, with a trek back to the jeep and a drive back to the office. After a quick shower and a Balinese lunch, you will be escorted back to your hotels with a whole load of memories for company.

- Carry only GoPros or waterproof cameras if you intend to shoot your own pictures.
- Listen to the guide and follow the instructions carefully.
- Check the weather report before you go to make sure you don’t have to deal with a rainstorm. Operators will also generally warn you beforehand or postpone the tour
