Canoeing on the Soča river

If you like paddling and are more do-it-yourself person then canoeing on the Soča river is the right choice for you because it’s

adventurous

Canoe is a smaller version of raft and we only board 2 person per boat.

That’s why canoeing is definitely more “hard work” than rafting. And more wet 🙂

tailored to your wishes

You have two options when it comes to canoeing.

You can either do it with a guide in the boat with you or you can guide your canoe by yourself and the guide accompanies you in kayak.

safe

Both guiding techniques are equal when it comes to safety.

However, if you are a beginner or plan this trip with children we advise for a guide to be in the boat.

How it goes

EXPLORE OUR WEBSITE

And make a list of all the activities you want to include in your vacation wish list. Canoeing will take about 3 hours of your time which means that you can add another activity on the same day. We’ll be happy to advise you on how to organize your wish list.

LET US KNOW YOU’RE COMING

Booking a tour in advance is always a good idea. Canoeing tours should be booked at least 5 days in advance to make sure we have places available.

You can book your trip by

  • filling out a reservation form
  • sending us e-mail on hello@bovec-rafting-team.com
  • calling us on +386 41 338 308
  • sending SMS on +386 41 338 308

DON’T FORGET TO BRING

  • towels
  • swimsuits (best if you wear them under your clothes)
  • extra pair of underwear because your swimsuits will be wet
  • ponytail elastic if your hair is long

COME TO BOVEC

Our sports center is located in Bovec. We have a big private parking lot where you can park your car. There are also toilets, showers, lockers and changing cabins here. Not to mention the chill-out area with free WiFi.

CHECK-IN AT OUR OFFICE

First we will need you to sign a declaration of awareness. Please note that we can’t take on canoeing trip people who are

  • under the influence of alcohol and drugs
  • pregnant
  • physically or mentally disabled
  • blind (you have to be able to see at least something)

Check the list of medical conditions that might prevent you from joining our rafting tour.

Then we will kindly ask you to pay 🙂 You can pay in Euro or by credit card. VISA, Mastercard, Maestro and American Express are all accepted.

MEET YOUR GUIDES

They will explain the details about the trip and hand you all the equipment you need.
In our gear room you will get

  • neoprene suit
  • splash jacket
  • life jacket
  • helmet
  • neoprene shoes

GETTING TO THE SOČA RIVER

There’s a big parking in front of the Bovec Rafting Team sports center. There you will leave your car. You won’t need it until the end of your canoeing trip. We will take you to the starting point on the Soča river and then back to Bovec with our vans and buses.

STILL ON SHORE

You will change to neoprene suits. You will leave your clothes and towels in our van or bus. Just before you start with crazy paddling the guide will also explain the basics of whitewater safety and show you what the paddle is for.

FUN ON THE RIVER

The first part of the tour is more calm and slow. You will have the chance to practice paddling. On the middle the guides will stop the boats for you to jump off the rocks and swim a little. The second part of the river is then more dynamic. The rapids get up to the difficulty level III.

WHEN OUT OF THE RIVER

Help your guide carry the canoe back to the parking lot. No excuse here!
The vans will already be there with your dry clothes. When you’re ready we’ll drive you back to our sports center.

GET PHOTOS AND VIDEOS FROM YOUR RAFTING TOUR

Your guide will take his GoPro camera on the river. After the trip we will send you all the photos and videos from the trip for free. So, stop at our office and leave your e-mail. We will send you a link as soon as photos and videos are uploaded to a cloud gallery.

MAKE SURE YOU DIDN’T FORGET ANYTHING AT OUR SPORTS CENTER

Unless it’s Aston Martin One-77 car keys. We’ll be happy to keep those. But if you do forget something less exciting just send us an e-mail. We’ll be happy to send it back to you.

TELL EVERYONE HOW AWESOME WE ARE 🙂

Facebook, TripAdvisor and Google+ reviews are much appreciated. Thank you!
