Kayaking on the Soca is a great way of spending your active holiday with us, an exciting trip downstream is one you won’t want to miss out on! the exhilarating kayaking in Slovenia isn’t restricted to the Soca though.
Also, we recommend the Savinja River in northeast Slovenia is one of the best rivers of this region for Kayaker’s to tackle. It flows through the Upper and Lower Savinja valley & onto famous Slovenian cities such as Lasko and Celje. In the Savinja Alps, the river runs into the Sava River near the Zidani Most.

You will be taught the fundamentals of managing rapids in your kayak on the scenic river Savinja in Upper Savinja Valley. The sheer volume of white water & fast torrents make the Savinja River a favourite with experienced Kayakers. It’s extensive length & rampant waves have made it one of the most popular rafting destinations on the European continent, as the whitewaters have caught the eye of many a river sports fan! The river also has several natural waterfall treats, which you will see flowing gracefully on the side of the river.
