Kayak School

For beginners, we offer a one-day, two-day or five-day kayak school, where you will enjoy kayaking for about 3 hours a day. In multiple-day courses, we will upgrade your technical knowledge and test it on various sections of the Soča River. After completing a five-day kayak school course, most participants, accompanied by mentors, are able to paddle on parts of the river with difficulty level III.

Don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten about young aspiring kayakers. That is why we also adapt kayak courses for families with young children, so our excellent kayak guides can give as much knowledge as possible to all age groups - in a fun way.

All you need for kayaking the Soča river is a positive approach and an adventurous spirit. However, you can later transfer the knowledge you acquire to all parts of the world, as you become your own “boss” of kayaking.

Kayak Trip with Guppy Inflatable Kayak

Have you always wanted to face the power of the Soča River on your own and conquer its rapids? Do you want to paddle along the mischievous emerald river Soča, but the water level is too low for a rafting adventure? Don’t worry, we have a fun alternative for you - descending Soča river with an inflatable kayak - guppy.

The Soča River, which is said to be a paradise for kayakers, offers various sections of difficulty and obstacles that need to be overcome on a kayak descent. But not everyone feels comfortable doing it in a closed kayak. That is why guppy is designed to make you feel safer while giving you the advantage of easier control over it. Paddling in a guppy is suitable for beginners and families who simply want to learn how to paddle as well as those who already have experience in kayaking and want to improve their kayaking skills. Fun is definitely guaranteed!

However, if you are one of the big adrenaline and kayak enthusiasts and you want to be pleasantly tired after the descent, we recommend that you take part in a longer descent. With a little help from high water levels, you can experience even more magical moments on the beautiful emerald river Soča.
