What people are saying about Bovec
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 can really recommend this activity. I was a little bit afraid of too much „dry run“ and how to hold the paddle etc... but it really was a helpful introduction before we started paddling! We were just two people with our guide and he did a very individual program with us. Whenever we wanted tough waves we got it. Perfect customer orientation! Furthermore we did some cliff jumping and swimming.
The only problem we had that it was not easy to find the start point, but then everything was smooth. Maybe the organizing part could be a bit more effevtive, for eg we wanted to purchase some photos, but the pics were not available.
We had a great time on the river today! The guides are really fun but know what they are doing and made sure everything was safe. The river is not too intense (summertime) but you can jump of the rocks and slide down at some points.
