A great day rafting. A small company in Bovec gave us great service. They were responsive, flexible, safety conscious and fun. The owner and guide took pride in their work and the local area and shared that enthusiasm with us. The low water level limited the amount of rafting we could do, but what we did do was fantastic and... More

Did 3 days from a 5 day white water kayak basic course. The first contact and all went fast and very cooperative. Very friendly welcoming atmosphere. The kayak instructor was great with a lot of fun, interesting conversations and patience. I learned a lot, felt safe and had a lot of fun. Can't say much about the other kayak instructors... More

No need to worry about safety, the guide on the water made the ride with the clear instructions safe and easy even on trickier parts of the river. During the ride, we had two stops for sliding on the raft and jumping off the appx. 7m rock which was quite thrilling too.

Janez is a great teacher. Very patience and with a lot of experience. All the experience was worthwhile. Soca river is a beautiful place. Petra was extreamly helpful providing other activities like paragliding, a must to do.

My daughter and I enjoyed the 5 days course very much. The water of the Soca is phantastic (clear and absolutely drinkable). Our guide gave a very well structured training. The course was at the right level of challenge. It was a pleasure to do the course and we got a lot of positive feedback from our guide. Rainer

As there was low water and we already had kajaking experience we were allowed to go on a bit harder section of the soca on the kajak trip! Pretty cool thing! In the canyon was a really low water level in september, but nevertheless it was still... More
