Canyoning in the Fratarca canyon

CHALLENGING

You will love Fratarica canyoning if you are rappelling enthusiast and have no fear of heights. There are 5 awesome waterfalls, the highest being 50 meters high.

EXCITING

Fratarica is not only about crazy high waterfalls. It’s also about exploring hidden corners of wild nature where only rope can take you.

SAFE

You will be guided thru the canyon by professional guides. They will make sure your experience is thrilling, but safe. We don’t recommend canyoning if you have spine or joints problems.

How it goes

EXPLORE OUR WEBSITE

You can find many water, land and air activities we organize. Canyoning in Fratarca takes about 4 hours. However, Fratarca canyoning is quite physically demanding so we don’t recommend booking another activity on the same day. But, if you plan to stay in Bovec for more than 1 day, feel free to join us for more adventures. We’ll be happy to assist if you need help with your travel plans.

LET US KNOW YOU’RE COMING

If canyoning in the Fratarca canyon is on top of your wish-list please make a reservation at least 5 days in advance. Fratarca canyoning takes a lot more preparations and organizing than any other activity we offer. So, you cannot just show up in the office and book Fratarca canyoning for the next day. Especially in July and August you must have a reservation.

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
  • bottles of water
  • 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 canyoning 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 canyoning 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
  • neoprene jacket
  • harness (safety climbing belt)
  • helmet
  • neoprene shoes

GETTING TO THE FRATARCA CANYON

There’s a parking infornt of the Bovec Rafting Team sports center where you will leave your car. You won’t need it until the end of your canyoning adventure. We will take you to the starting point in the Fratarca canyon and then back to Bovec with our vans and buses.

BEFORE YOU ENTER THE CANYON

You will change to neoprene suits, put on neoprene shoes and harnesses. You will leave your clothes and towels in our van or bus. Then follows a 40 minutes long walk to the starting point. We all hate this part of the tour but it’s worth the award. Just before you start with crazy sliding down the waterfalls the guide will also explain the basic of whitewater safety and show you what the harness is for.

FUN IN THE CANYON

There are many high waterfalls in the Fratarca canyon, but not so many jumps and slides. The main difference is that Sušec canyoning is less demanding and therefore more fun. Fratarca canyoning is more demanding and more technical. Waterfalls are also much higher, up to 50 meters high. That means you will be using the rope and harness most of the time and it’s good if you have at least some rock climbing experience.

WHEN OUT OF THE CANYON

Look back at the last waterfall and be proud of your achievement.
Then get rid of that terrible wet neoprene. 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 canyoning tour. 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

Or it will be lost forever! No, just kidding. If you later realize you forgot somethig here just send us an email. We will gladly send it back to you.

TELL EVERYONE HOW AWESOME WE ARE 🙂

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