Full description
This canoeing or minirafting tour on the Soča River will definitely be one of the most memorable experiences of your holiday. The two or three-seater canoes are narrower than the big rafts. You can choose different lines or river sections where the larger rafts can't go, and on top of it all, you can steer the miniraft yourself, if you have some prior experience. Imagine having 1.5 hours of continuous fun and excitement with your family or friends on the crystal-clear waters of the Soča River, one of the most popular destinations in Europe for whitewater enthusiasts. Different river sections can be chosen based on the appropriate difficulty for you. It can be either a floating tour on swift water, or a sporty activity in real whitewater, filled with rapids, waves, swift currents, and diverse rock forms. You can also jump from rocks or go swimming if you would like to. Meet your guide at the raft shack in Bovec where you will receive all the equipment you need for the activity, such as neoprene boots, wetsuits, lifejackets and helmets. The river is about a 10 minute drive from Bovec. On the shore, when everybody is dressed and ready, you will be briefed on safety before the adventure starts. You will spend about 1.5 hours on the river. Your guide will photograph the best moments and the pictures will be available to you for an additional charge.

Mega Tour! Unser Guide war top, hat uns alles toll erklärt- wir haben uns zu jeder Zeit sicher gefühlt, auch als Anfänger. Selbst an den schwierigen Stellen hat er uns super durch die Felsen manövriert, es hat echt mega Spaß gemacht und war total aufregend. Die Fotos sind auch super geworden! Ich kann die Tour nur empfehlen
