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 choose calm stretches suitable for families with small children, and more demanding parts for adrenaline seekers.
FULL-DAY RAFTING WITH A PICNIC
This tour is ideal for rafting enthusiasts, who would like to explore also the hidden parts of upper Soča stream. We will start on the highest put-in, where it is possible to paddle on the river, right under the Kršovec gorge. We have the whole day for this trip, so we are not in a hurry. We walk up to have a look into the beautiful gorge, we can also jump off from a few meters and we can drop around a little cave as well.
After the short briefing, we paddle right into the waves. The adventures of the first half hour bring us to the easiest and the most beautiful section of the Soča River. The valley totally opens which enables us to get a gorgeous view on the surrounding mountains.
We will stop on one of the beautiful beaches for a picnic on the rolled-over boat. We will taste some the local traditional cheese and salami, and also some other goodies to keep our energy high over the whole day. After the break we will get soon to the start of the classic section where the view will be changed to waves and adrenalin. Experience Soča in all its beauties!
