About Soca River

Before the rafting trip, there is a safety talk which includes your guide explaining what you have to know about the river, your equipment, and paddle techniques.


The river gradually increases in difficulty. The first part of the river is easiest, where you can practice what you have learned from your guide and bond to become a real team. The second part is longer and more exciting. The river flows through a nice, open gorge with big rocks, waves, and class II-III rapids. We can guarantee no one will get out dry!


During the trip we will stop to refresh ourselves and you have the chance to jump from smaller or bigger rocks or try swimming down on an easy rapid.
