Full description
Meet 15 minutes before the tour starts in the local partner's office in the center of Bovec. Meet the kayaking team, get your whitewater equipment (neoprene suits and shoes, helmet, life jacket), and take a 10-minute drive to the starting point beside the Soča river. Before you start the journey down the Soča river, the guides will tell you all the necessary information about the safety of whitewater and about the rafting itself. Sit in your kayak and paddle in the crystal clear water through the rapids of the Soča river. During the lesson, you will cover the theory and practice of the basics of kayaking, and train yourself to become an independent and safe kayaker. Spend about 2.5 hours on the water. The river is very easy to navigate in the beginning but will become more challenging as you continue your adventure. Your guide will choose the parts of Soča that are challenging enough to progress, but not to difficult for anyone in the group. Once you reach the finish point, the drivers will be waiting for you with your dry clothes. After everyone changes, return to Bovec with a 10-minute drive back to the office. The tour is taken in small groups with similar knowledge and abilities of guests.

Very beautiful! We were a very small group, the guide gave a great introduction, explained everything from the ground up and included small exercises and "games" again and again at suitable sections of the river. All in all, really good care! The Soca itself is simply beautiful and there is probably no better way to get to know the landscape!

Wurden schon sehr nett am Treffpunkt empfangen, danach einfache Tour mit richtigen Kajaks (nicht die üblichen Sit on Top Varianten). Guide war sehr geduldig und hat viel erklärt (englisch), so dass Manöver wie queren und Einfahrt ins Kehrwasser bald gut von der Hand gingen. Alles in allem ein gelungener Tag mit viel Zeit auf dem Wasser. Danke nochmal

Great course!

We had a great course, our guide (Benni) was very helpful and explained everything in peace and serenity. So we were able to venture into the white water of bloody beginners within 2 days.
