Then, kayak down the most popular sections of the beautiful river, Soča.  The first section of the river is easier, so you have some time to practice what you've learned.

From Ljubljana: Skočjan Caves Half-Day Trip

6. From Ljubljana: Skočjan Caves Half-Day Trip

Get picked up at your hotel or guesthouse at 8:30 AM, then drive to the caves as your guide informs you about Slovenia. Upon arrival at around 9:30 AM, your guide will help you to buy the tickets to enter the cave. At 10 AM, begin your tour of the caves, spending around 1 hour and 45 minutes inside.

After your tour, you can eat something at the restaurant near the ticket counter if you wish. Finally, get back in your vehicle at 12 PM and return to Ljubljana. The tour concludes with drop-off at your original pickup point at approximately 1 PM.
