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 rafting 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 GUIDE

He 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 rafting trip. We will take you to the starting point on the Soča river and then back to Bovec with our vans.

STILL ON SHORE

You will change to neoprene suits. Don’t worry about the silly outfit. We all look the same on the river. 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 your guide will stop the boat 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 raft back to the parking lot. No excuse here!
The van 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

You wouldn’t believe all the treasures we find around here at the end of the day. But if you do forget something just send us an e-mail. We’ll be happy to send it back to you.
