FOLLOW THE RIVER’S PATH
In canyoning we follow the river’s path down through the canyon. We swim in crystal clear pools and descend down waterfalls. Canyoning offers unique views of the valley – completely different to what we see from above. Navigating such environments is not without its challenges which is why your safety is our top priority! Expect professional equipment and highly trained guides.
An unforgettable experience for you and your family
The famous canyon is located a 30-minute drive from our starting point, the village of Soča. It takes 40 minutes to walk to the entry point. We are walking along the path that was created during the First World War. Don’t forget to ask your guide to tell you more about it!
Warmed up, we arrive at the entry point. Here we put on our gear and your guide tells you everything you need to know to feel safe in the canyon.
Be prepared to enjoy many smaller waterfalls where we slide or jump. We save the highest waterfall for last. Here we use rope. Know that Sušec is an open canyon, which means you can skip any waterfall if you don’t feel ready for it. If you and your family enjoy nature as much as we do, try to find some animals in the canyon, such as frogs, waders or fish. And if you’re lucky, you might even see a few snakes!
After an exciting 1.5 hours we return back to the van.
Look at your children and find the sparks in their eyes! We are sure that these moments will remain a part of your conversations for a long time!
