Select tour language
    What to Expect
    Make your way to a central location in Bovec around 8:30am, where your driver will be waiting for you. Travel to the banks of the Soča River, where you'll meet your instructor and listen to a safety briefing and orientation. Get kitted out with a kayak, life jacket, and paddle, then take a short drive to the launch point. 

    Learn about the laws of water flow and how to look out for hazards as you paddle 3 to 6 miles (5 to 10 km). Practice the techniques you learned while your instructor coaches you. 

    After your time on the river, transfer back to Bovec and take some time to talk about the day's paddle and what you learned.

    Had a Great After Season course. Very Small group (2 and 3 People in the group) and a very individual course. Everyone was very friendly. Soca is a nice River. Kayak School was a lot of fünf and we will definitely do it again some day
