Full description

Meet the kayaking team, get your whitewater equipment, 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 too 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.

We’re not the sportsy kind of people, being up and off at it. But my partner turned into a kayak lover l, where at first he wanted to kill me afraid of getting stuck underwater. The instructions from the instructor were very good. He had the biggest patience and good humour. We were here in aug, in the driest summer ever and the water being lower than normal. But even then we managed to do some strong currents and ‘falls’

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

Sehr freundlicher, lustiger, geduldiger und auf Anfängerängste gut eingehender Guide, der ein gutes und leicht verständliches Englisch spricht. Es war ein unglaublich tolles Erlebnis - der Fluss und die Landschaft sind so und so unbeschreiblich schön!
