Bovec: Half-Day Kayaking Trip Down the Soča

1. Bovec: Half-Day Kayaking Trip Down the Soča

This half-day inflatable kayak tour is ideal for those looking for something more challenging than rafting, but who don’t have a lot of experience with kayaking. Due to their design, the one-person Guppy and the two-person Ducky are much more stable than the traditional plastic kayak, making learning how to control them much easier.  Perfect for beginners or intermediate kayakers, you are offered a choice between a beginner (Class I-II) and an intermediate (Class II-III) route. Begin with a briefing from your expert guide: learn about the river, safety procedures, and paddling techniques. Then, kayak down the most popular sections of the beautiful river, Soča.  The first section of the river is easier, so you have some time to practice what you've learned. The second section is longer and more fun, replete with a stunning open gorge with big rocks, waves, and rapids (Class II-III). During the journey, enjoy a refreshing pitstop, where you’ll have a chance to jump around between rocks or try swimming down an easy rapid.
