Kayaking in Slovenia in the alpine Soča River Valley

Every year we run week long kayaking trips to the beautiful Soča River valley in Bovec, Slovenia. This unspoilt turquoise river provides a perfect playground that caters for all grades of kayaking ability.  There are crystal clear pools and scenic stretches for absolute beginners leading right up to challenging grade IV rapids for more advanced paddlers. The trips are split by ability; intermediate and beginner and both courses run during the same week of 27th May till 3rd June 2017. So you can even come with a friend/family member of a different ability level. Explore the options below to find the trip that suits you best.
