Full description

Enjoy a half-day inflatable kayak tour designed for those who don’t have a lot of experience with kayaking. Due to their design, the one-person Guppy and the two-person Ducky are much more stable than the traditional plastic kayak, making them easier to steer. 

Take tour that is perfect for beginners or intermediate kayakers. Choose from a beginner (Class I-II) and an intermediate (Class II-III) route. Start with a briefing from your guide and learn about the river, safety procedures, and paddling techniques.

Embark on an adventure down the most popular sections of the Soča river. The first section of the river is easier, so you have some time to practice what you've learned. 

Challenge yourself with the second section , which is longer and more fun, with an open gorge, big rocks, waves, and rapids (Class II-III). During the journey, stop to jump around between rocks or try swimming down an easy rapid.

Die Kajaktour auf der Soca war wirklich toll. Was man vorher wissen sollte, dass die Tour nicht ganz anspruchslos ist. Also man sollte voher schon mal Kajak gefahren sein. Der Guide war aber super nett und hat einem immer geholfen und Tipps gegeben. Und man sollte keine Scheu vor Wasser haben. Also es kann durch aus passieren, wenn man rein fällt, dass man wegen der Strömung gegen den Stein gedrückt wird und über einem das Kajak(Guppy) ist. Dann braucht man schon Kraft um wieder hoch zu kommen. Alles in allem war es trotzdem schön und die Erfahrung wert.

Awesome guide, we've been clearly lucky (it was on Monday and just the two of us) because he brought us to the toughest part of the river which is not always accessible. We were beginners and we had very much fun (even my friend who flipped twice). Definitely recommended if you're looking for adrenaline too.

Es war ein tolles Erlebnis, das ich jedem empfehle der sich auf ein mutiges Abenteuer einlassen möchte! Unser Guide führte uns kompetent und gewissenhaft ein. Zu Beginn fühlte ich mich stark überfordert, doch schon nach ein paar Stromschnellen und mit jedem Paddelschlag wächst der Mut und die Freude. Ein überwältigendes, tolles Abenteuer!
