First we’ll learn about kayaking history, how and when it all begin. We will first warm up, go through basic kayaking techniques, safety brief and then I’ll show you secret spots on Soča river not even some locals know about. Far from the crowds, even in the middle of high season. Passing scenes from the Chronicles of Narnia movie, Boka waterfall, looking for endemic species of fish Soča trout (Salmo marmoratus) two and half hours on river will pass like quarter of an hour! We will take a short break for a quick snack and a swim in one of many emerald pools or just to relax on the shore for a while.
Perfect for: complete beginner kayakers without any previous experiences eager to experience Soča river (families included)
The Soča River is one of the most popular kayaking destinations in Europe. Rapids of different difficulty levels (from I to V) are suitable for both beginners and very experienced kayakers who prefer technically demanding sections.
Kayaking down the Soča River fills kayakers with the special feeling of experiencing nature. Gliding along the undulating emerald water surface stops every now and then in the quiet corners of the river and is touched by freshness, murmur and magical views. A kayak trip in the Soča Valley is a real cooling down on hot summer days, and you’ll forget about the bad weather on rainy days.
Kayaking in the Soča Valley and its surroundings is possible on sections of rivers and lakes:
A permit is required for navigation on the Soča and Koritnica rivers. Before you head out on the river, check out the navigational and safety information. If you are not familiar with it, we advise you to go on the river in the company of an experienced guide.
Sports agencies that organize descents provide the necessary equipment, a professionally qualified guide for safe navigation and transport to the river and back to the starting point.
