Canyoning
For millennia Soca valley limestone has been polished by raging water pouring down the steep spines of the Julian Alps. Mountain streams created channels, falls and pools eventually nursing Soca. These sparkling gorges offer true refreshment especially on hot summer days. We usually walk around to the top and canyon our way down following the water. Walking through the narrows, sliding cascades, plunging into basins or we descend with ropes. No reason to be stuck in a groove. Relive your Aktiv childhood in warm company.
Susec – Dry creek

At the bottom of mount Stol. Slickest, warmest, most popular and very wet. High jumps and funky slides are optional. Little use of ropes. Susec is a fantastic world for everyone including children. Easy access.

Walk up 20 to 30 minutes. Streamtime 1,5 to 2,5 hours.

Grand Susec

Takes us much higher than our usual start. Upper Susec is wider and deeper. Lush walls forcing us to rappel. More technical and slippery. A healthy challenge. Jolly time in the lower canyon.

Walk up 30 to 45 minutes. Streamtime 3 to 5 hours.

Fratarica

Grooved into the massive Loska Stena -Wall above the Meadow- full with features. Jumps, slides, short and long rappels. Pristine setting. Cascade Parabola is a cliffhanger. Say your prayer in the Katedrala. Good teamwork adds to the experience.

Walk up 25 to 40 minutes. Streamtime 2 to 4 hours.

Predelnica

Winding down from the Predil pass at the border with Italy clear streams lead us on a scenic alpine adventure. In cold winters a playground for iceclimbers; now summer, we slide and jump down cascades. Magnificent views of Loska Stena, green pools and a great diversity of rappels. The upper Predilnica has prime canyoning for beginners and advanced.

We hike through a bouldergarden towards the lower Predelnica. Early this century a massive mudslide rolled down from Mangart painting this secluded section grey. Occasionally a freefall feature, here we tackle many wet and fun rappels. Grand Finale is a 40 meter waterfall and we hike through the gorge down to the village of Log Pod Mangertom. Lower Predelnica is best for a canyoneer with some experience.

UPPER PREDELNICA:

Walk in 30 minutes walk out 30 minutes. Streamtime 2 to 3 hours.

UPPER AND LOWER PREDELNICA:

Walk in 10 minutes. Streamtime 4 to 6 hours.

Kozjak

Any beauty related superlative may be used describing this canyon. After a lovely walk along Alpe Adria Trail, crossing Soča river over footbridge one shall catch initial feel on little slides in a side brook, to get ready for adrenaline rush on the first 10m jump. From here on you are in a narrow part with very deep lagoon like ponds, swimming in stunning passages between tall glittery green walls. In the heart of it the confident ones shall do the thrilling up to 8m technical jumps, yet it’s stirring and wonderful to abseil pouring waterfalls.

Lastly make sure you’re wearing your winning smile on the final 20m Kozjak waterfall as there will be many tourists taking photos of you descending it.

Goloboski potok

Have you travelled the other canyons? Flowing down from the Southern Kanin range the steepest canyon we visit flows into the Uccea creek. The approach is gorgeous and strenuous. Today we spare our ankles and knees, no jumps. Fortunately higher up we get good practise before we start our commitment. Dessert: descend of three vertical waterfalls each ending in a pool. Views and vertigo. Stream deep and dream steep.

Walk up one hour. Walk out 30 minutes. Streamtime 2 to 4 hours.
