WHY KAYAKING?

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:

  • the river Soča (various levels of difficulty),
  • Koritnica river (suitable for experienced kayakers),
  • lake near Most na Soča (suitable for beginners),
  • Rabeljsko jezero (suitable for beginners).
 

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.
