Nature, crystal clear water, white boulders, big waves, adrenalin? We must talk about the rafting on the Soča. The Emerald river has variable sections, which offer a great fun for all generations. We can choose calm stretches suitable for families with small children, and more demanding parts for adrenaline seekers.
The mini raft is a raft for just 2-3 people, fast and maneuverable. As the boat is smaller, we get closer to the river. The waves and rocks are bigger, and we can pass even the most narrow passages. Besides rowing, we have to learn to move with the water, and lean with the boat, otherwise our hair will get wet too.
Ussualy there is a guide in the boat with guests. Experienced and fearless crews can be accompanied by a guide in his kayak. He is showing us the way, giving us the commands, but all the paddling and steering we have to do by ourselves. Real challenge!

We will meet in our office Soča Splash in the center of Bovec, where you will meet your guide and rafting team.
After the short briefing about our day together and collecting the whitewater equipment (neoprene suit, neoprene shoes, helmet, life west), we will drive to the starting point, on the shore of Soča river.
We will change to our wetsuits and leave dry clothes in the vans that will wait for us at the finish point. Before we start our journey down the Soča river, our guides will educate you all necessary about the safety on whitewater and rafting itself.
We will jump in the raft, row our paddles in the crystal clear water and float down the rapids of Soča river. We will stop more times for jumping and swimming in the emerald pools and have a lot of fun on the waves.
Our vans will wait for us on the finish point, where we will change back to dry clothes and drive back to Bovec.
