Sit-on-top kayaks are convenient also for those who have never tried kayaking before. They are very stable and easy to use, which is why they are an excellent choice for people of all ages. They have several advantages over classic whitewater kayaks. Sit-on-top kayaks don't have an enclosed deck, which is why they are easier to enter and exit.

Had a nice time!

Lovely scenery on the way there. The mine train was interesting and going through the tunnels in kayaks was something we never were able to do anywhere else and really fun. Be aware there’s not much actual kayaking to be done, as most tunnels are too narrow, so you just pull yourself through with your hands on the wall. It was a bit awkward that some people on our kayaking mine tour got lunch, but this tour didn’t include it, so we just sat and waited for others to eat. Bring lunch, not just snacks!

Great day out and very different to any other caving experience I've had before. On the drive to the cave our guide stopped at several locations to show us views and points of interest which made the experience more engaging.

A very special experience !!! Kayaking on crystal clear water underground, it really is an experience! We will always remember it!

It was an amazing experience, kayaking down a beautiful river in Slovenia

Top Guide, fun, action, good equipment. Perfect trip to enjoy!
