Tubing down the Elo River of Central Java – After shopping in Malioboro, visiting the Sultan’s palace in Yogyakarta or exploring the magnificent Borobudur temple, it’s time for some tubing fun! Join this rough and winding journey down the Elo River in Magelang, in the province of Central Java, for an exhilarating experience, and an exciting story to share upon your return home.
For those that love the wet and wild adventures, take a shot at this latest method of careening down a raging river. Tubing is somewhat similar to rafting, but atop a large rubber inner tube instead of an inflatable raft. Unlike the typical raft which seats about 6 passengers, tubing is for those who prefer to take on the river alone.
Despite the daunting image of speeding down the river rapids while seated in a truck’s tire, tubing is perfectly safe and comfortable. If you don’t yet know how to swim, that’s no problem at all. Like any other adventure sport, tubing does have its own risks, but all efforts have been taken to minimize those risks. Patrons of the Magelang Tubing will be supplied with the standard equipment of life-jackets, helmets and gaiters – all of which you will be required to use. Experienced river guides will provide guidance before you set off, so be sure to listen carefully and follow the given instructions. A guide will also be present on the river. Guides have all been well trained to provide the maximum safety during rafting or tubing and are all quite familiar with its bends and swells. Along both sides of the river, you can also appreciate the stretches of rice fields and coffee plantations.
Elo River is quite challenging, yet safe, and takes about 2.5 – 3 hours to complete. The course has been graded between Grade II and III, meaning that it is safe enough for beginners.
Most tubing and rafting operators provide a place of rest after the trip. Here you can have a taste of traditional snacks, and quench your thirst with cool coconut water. To conclude your journey, take a look at the candid shots snapped throughout your trip. These are available for purchase, for an unforgettable piece of Elo River that you can take home and treasure always.

For four days, I traveled around with Mas Agus from Java Heritage Tours. He took me to see the temples of Borobudur and Prambanan, explore vulcanic craters, see the Dieng plateau, and visit various sights in the city of Yogyakarta. I even got a cooking class at his place (which was delicious).
I was traveling through Indonesia by myself, but Agus made me feel very safe and took great care of me. He was super friendly and very knowledgeable. I had an absolutely fantastic time, and I can recommend Java Heritage Tours to anyone! More
