We absolutely loved our day with Soca Rider doing white water rafting! Chassi (our guide) and Petra were lovely and very professional with the bits of paperwork beforehand and the safety brief and description of the rapids ahead! Our time on the water was SO much fun and I can't believe that it wasn't too cold even though it was... More

We went for the Easy Kayak Trip, which was a couple of hours going down the Soca river as complete beginners. Chassie (our guide) makes the learning experience really fun by cracking a few jokes. He ensured we were comfortable in the water before going down a few rapids. We'd stop frequently to take in the sights. It was the... More

A great day rafting. A small company in Bovec gave us great service. They were responsive, flexible, safety conscious and fun. The owner and guide took pride in their work and the local area and shared that enthusiasm with us. The low water level limited the amount of rafting we could do, but what we did do was fantastic and... More

Did 3 days from a 5 day white water kayak basic course. The first contact and all went fast and very cooperative. Very friendly welcoming atmosphere. The kayak instructor was great with a lot of fun, interesting conversations and patience. I learned a lot, felt safe and had a lot of fun. Can't say much about the other kayak instructors... More
