White Water Rafting
Safari Tours offers one of the most spectacular and thrilling adventure tours in North Sulawesi. You will be picked
up at your hotel at 9:00 AM and driven to the village of Sonder (about 1.5 hours from the center of Manado) located
in the Minahasan highlands. Your journey down the river will take about one and a half hours and at the end you
will scream for more. Every raft can hold up to six persons including an experienced guide. After this wet and wild
experience, it’s back down the mountain, arriving at your hotel or the city of Manado by approximately 3:00 PM.
Duration – approximately 6-7 hours — Departure – AM
$85/Per person (minimum 2 persons)– From Manado City
Kali Waterfall
Waterfall buffs, this is probably the nicest way to spend 5 hours if you need to kill time in Manado. Just a short
drive, part way up the road on the way to Tomohon you will discover a rural village and enjoy a scenic walk to the
two falls. Suggestion – wear sneakers or hiking boots as it can be quite slippery (maybe bring a change of clothes, t-
shirt and shorts). Be ready for lots of wind blown spray as the force of the water is pretty intense, causing the mist
to pretty much cover everything and everyone. There is a nice bridge that spans the river where you can get some
great shots of the waterfall! Take the family – I took a 3 & 6 year old.
Duration – approximately 5 hours — Departure AM
$60.00/Pax 2 person minimum (in town pick-up)
