Bovec: Soča River 1-Day Beginners Kayak Course
- Small group
- Duration: 4 hours
This was fun! Although we were expecting to be in a group, it turned it was just my wife and I. The Soca river is incredibly beautiful (and cold!) and rafting on it was really exciting. The current is not too strong, so very suitable for beginners like us. Besides rafting, we also jumped off a few rocks and bridges. A super fun experience and there are not too many places in Europe where you can do this (I think). Our guide Mate was great: he explained everything thoroughly and made sure we were safe and having a good time. One thing that could be better: I think we were on the water for about 60-90 minutes, I expected that to be longer.
Our initial rafting time-slot happened to fall during bad weather, but we were given the option to postpone to the next day, when weather was supposed to be better. We did so, and ended up rafting on a perfectly sunny Wednesday morning. The rafting included some other activities such as jumping from high rocks, which was new to us and very much appreciated. Our guide Heidar was great and made sure we knew the safety regulations before the start of the rafting trip. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely recommend.
We were a group of four and absolutely loved this experience! Our guide (and all the others too) were just amazing! They were very open minded, qualified, helpful and full of jokes. We laughed a lot, had a beautiful experience at the river and felt save the whole time. All four of us can absolutely recommend this activity with this company!
An amazing experience to be in crystal clear water near the big trout was astounding! And soooo cold but great for dinner party stories! Snorkelling without snorkels...snorkels definitely not required! A pity the trip was not longer.
Rafting on the Soça is the most beautiful thing you can do on water. We had a lot of fun with our guide Haydan, who was not only a fantastic rafting instructor, but also a very fun and experienced companion during the tour.
