Enjoy a half day rafting trip on the Soca River in Bovec, Slovenia
This excursion is an ideal introduction to the thrill of whitewater rafting, that is great for families or groups. Choose between our morning and afternoon departures and spot local wildlife as you cruise down the river with our professional guides.
On the half day rafting trip, we go down on the most popular section of the Soca River.
Before the rafting trip, there is a safety talk which includes your guide explaining what you have to know about the river, your equipment, and paddle techniques. The river gradually increases in difficulty. The first part of the river is easiest, where you can practice what you have learned from your guide and bond to become a real team. The second part is longer and more exciting. The river flows through a nice, open gorge with big rocks, waves, and class II-III rapids. We can guarantee no one will get out dry! During the trip we will stop to refresh ourselves and you have the chance to jump from smaller or bigger rocks or try swimming down on an easy rapid.

After you have found a suitable place to store your belongings we will take you to begin your adventure.
When you arrive to the river, you will be given a paddle, helmet and PFD (Personal Flotation Device). After the guides have pumped up the boat, the safety talk will begin. Please pay attention! Every detail could be important during the trip and will help you have a safer and more enjoyable experience.
Your guide will then check all the equipment to make sure it fits properly and is in functional condition. Then you will be ready to enjoy your rafting adventure! On the first, easy section of the trip our guides will explain everything, starting with how to work together as a team and how to move the raft. Then you will be taught how to respond if the raft hits a rock and if someone falls into the river how to rescue them back into the raft. All this can be practiced before the more challenging section of the river.
After the practice section, our guides will stop and explain what is about to come down river on your rafting adventure! You will demonstrate your new abilities, working hard as a team and enjoying your unforgettable experience. We promise that when the first wave hits your raft, you will become completely immersed in the trip and forget your daily routine and problems. During the trip you will be able to jump from smaller and bigger rocks into the crystal clear water, slide down on the bottom of the raft and if you are feeling adventurous you will be able to swim down one of the easier rapids.
