We are a family couple + 2 children aged 11,16 (not particularly brave ..) and arrive in about a month in Bled.
We will be happy to use your services to make rafting.
I wanted to check whether the equipment that we receive from you is also included shoes or booties?
Is there a place for keeping things we do not want to take with us to the rafting?
Do I need a reservation?
Thanks in advance,
Dear Zeev Valenstein,
thank you for the interest in our services and activities!
For the rafting there are 2 options:
1st. Rafting SAVA is our local rafting and a nice river trip, but not a proper white water rafting (it's graded white water class 2 on a scale from 1 to 5). We usually recommend this rafting option to families with smaller kids from 5 years and older.
2nd. Rafting SOCA is the best white-water rafting in Slovenia. It's graded 3+ out of 5 and it's the most scenic and fun rafting you can do in Slovenia, but nothing extreme or dangerous, so children of 8 years and older who can swim, feel comfortable in and around water can join this rafting option.
But it's our only activity that doesn't start from our office in Bled. So you can combine it with our full day Emerald River Adventure, or you have to drive to the starting point by yourself, which takes around 1,5 hours one way - so it takes the whole day in both cases. There is no decent public transport alternatives between Bled and Bovec, but it is worth the extra efforts to do rafting on a Soca river as it is a really special river with a crystal clear water.
I highly recommend our Emerald River Adventure. It's a really great day out, where you see all the most beautiful places around Triglav National Park and Julian Alps and have good fun all through the day.
We provide a full rafting equipment including wet suit, life-jacket, helmet, paddle and a neoprene shoes/booties. All you need are swimming suits and towels.
If you are not sure which activity would be most suitable for your children you are more than welcome to our 3glav Adventures office (9am-12pm & 4pm-7pm) located in the center of Bled (right opposite Post office) on your arrival day and we'll help you advise and find the best option for you according to availability. :)
You can find more details and all other info of each of our adventure and activity in the footer/bottom of our website.
Have a nice planing and happy travels!
