We (a group of 4 girls) were genuinely surprised how much we enjoyed this activity. The transfer to the river was well-planned, the scenery was absolutely stunning and our guide made all the difference. (His name is Mitja if I'm not mistaken) His English was super, knew a lot about our surroundings and made the whole tour more enjoyable. The tour was organised, the swimming suits and other stuff were clean and taken care of.

It was a really lovely experience which effectively exceeded our expectations. The guides were really nice and good at their job. The company is very organized and booking was very easy and straightforward. The rafting itself is really good and the places we passed through are simply amazing. I highly recommend this activity especially for families or group of friends.

Super fun day, made some friends and definitely stepped outside of my comfort zone doing canyoning. Rafting was relaxed and the guide was really good fun!

Everything worked perfectly. We were even picked up at our campsite and dropped off there again. Thanks.

Highly recommended, suitable for everyone, was great fun
