we loved every second of the tour and would strongly recommend it to everyone who’s searching for a bit of adrenaline combined with the beautiful nature of Slovenia! Thanks to our wonderful guide Heidar!

We did for the first time Kayaking. It was difficult but we get some good instructions from our guide. And that makes it some easyer and fun to do it.

The rapids aren’t as big as we have previously rafted but still an excellent day out. Loved the games and the scenery is amazing!

The trip was awesome and the two guides were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely do it again!

Absolutely worth the money! An adventure you will not forget about !!!!
