Which is the best kayaking adventure in Slovenia?
The most adrenaline-boosting rides you can experience in Slovenia can be found on fast rivers like Savina, Kolpa, Sava, and Krka.
We would recommend the Soca river, which is among the Top 3 European kayaking paradise with its rapids Class I to V, spread over a length of 54 kilometers. The perfectly preserved natural environment of the Soca Valley attracts kayak and canoe fans from all over the world.
Kayaking is the best way to enjoy the spectacular environment that the Soca River and its valley can offer. Experienced guides will help you master the technique, to be able to reach enchanting hidden corners of the river which are accessible only by kayak or canoe while enjoying the descent.
