Full description

Enjoy a half-day inflatable kayak tour designed for those who don’t have a lot of experience with kayaking. Due to their design, the one-person Guppy and the two-person Ducky are much more stable than the traditional plastic kayak, making them easier to steer. 

Take tour that is perfect for beginners or intermediate kayakers. Choose from a beginner (Class I-II) and an intermediate (Class II-III) route. Start with a briefing from your guide and learn about the river, safety procedures, and paddling techniques.

Embark on an adventure down the most popular sections of the Soča river. The first section of the river is easier, so you have some time to practice what you've learned. 

Challenge yourself with the second section , which is longer and more fun, with an open gorge, big rocks, waves, and rapids (Class II-III). During the journey, stop to jump around between rocks or try swimming down an easy rapid.

The kayak tour on the Soca was really great. What you should know beforehand is that the tour is not entirely undemanding. So you should have gone kayaking before. But the guide was super nice and always helped and gave tips. And you shouldn't be afraid of water. So it can happen that if you fall in, you will be pushed against the stone because of the current and the kayak (guppy) will be over you. Then you need strength to get back up. All in all it was still nice and worth the experience.

Adventurous trip on 'easy' whitewater. However, I did not find it very easy, often got stuck at the back of the group and had to transfer to the instructor's boat at the beginning, there was a good response. Partner, however, thought it was fun and doable. Keep in mind that you have to walk for about ten minutes over rocky landscape towards the water, in your tight and warm swimming suit, with a heavy kayak and paddle on your shoulder. This was disappointing to us, especially because it was not mentioned anywhere.

Super nice tour

I have never kayaked in a single kayak before and was persuaded to try it on this tour. And I was not disappointed, it was awesome, a nice guide with a lot of patience and an overview all alone for the two of us, bright sunshine and a soca so blue and refreshing ... it couldn't be better.
