Rafting was a blast with our group! The scenery is beautiful! There’s a good amount of activity. The equipment was in good condition, there’s a safety briefing, and you’re off to the rapids! We got to do some bodysurfing once the river joined with another, and there were a few balance games for the calm sections. It wasn’t a lot of work, but it was a very nice experience overall! Jani was an excellent canyoning guide! He led our group of 8 through the canyon, which was beautiful and easy enough for beginners. The jumps we went through were 1.5m, 2.5m, 6m, 8m, and 10m, but once you get to the higher jumps you’re allowed to rappel instead. He was very kind about the jumps and not pushy at all, which was very reassuring! Before you go into the canyon, there’s a safety brief that also goes over how to use the climbing hardware, no prior experience needed. It’s a good workout and he takes photos and videos of the whole experience. The water was extremely cold, but we had thick wetsuits.

It was amazing especially for the kids. The level was perfect. The staff was friendly and amicable. Perfect afternoon apart from the beautiful scenery we experienced during the rafting. Not to be missed

This program was an amazing experience. It was well-organised with all necessary equipment. Our guide also did a really great job, he entertained us during the whole trip. Everyone has to try it! :)

It was such a fun experience! Our guide was so knowledgeable and engaging, and the tour was the perfect balance of activity, relaxation, and beautiful scenery.

Our guide Rok Was very experienced and was able to show us how to do each of the steps safely.
