In June I took my family of 4 rafting on the Soca River and found the experience to be one of the highlights of our 18 day trip to Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Montenegro. The surrounding mountain scenery is truly spectacular and the river itself has crystalline water that is a beautiful light shade of green (thanks to the limestone). The rapids ranged from class 2 to 3 1/2 and our rafting guide was superb technically and also a great conversationalist. We were lucky in that we were able to do the 2 1/2 hour trip (May and June); if you raft in July, August or September the trip is 1 hour (fortunately, most of the action is during that 1 hour stretch of the river). The rafting equipment and logistical aspects of the excursion were topnotch. The starting point, Bovec, is a 2 hour drive from Ljubljana if you go via the fastest route but the far more scenic route is via the incredibly scenic Vrcic mountain pass. I have rafted rivers on 6 continents and this was my second favourite!

We chose Soca Rafting based on Tripadvisor reviews and couldn't do any better. Professional attitude, experienced staff and neat prices are the things that differ these guys from other alike companies you can find in Bovec. First day we went for rafting which is very nice but more family thing than adrenalin sport for youngsters. Second day we however tried canyoning and it was definitely the highlight of our trip. If any of you guys are hesitating which activity to choose, this one is a must!

It was our first time on an activity holiday and we chose Soča valley. There are lots of sports providers in town, but we decided for local company Soča rafting.We liked the fact they have parking space in front for customers and nicely arranged sports centre. We have two kids in early teens and we joined rafting trip with another four guys from Belgium and did canyoning on our second day. Activities were led by not only funny, but highly trained and competent local guides who helped us all exceed our limitations in very safe conditions. We still laugh back home watching more than 100 photos we purchased on CD for just 10€. So no need to bring your camera, as they have professional photographer taking photos of you enjoying yourselves. The children thought it was the best holiday they have ever been on and we certainly enjoyed being stretched and doing things out of our own comfort zone.

If you are considering rafting in Slovenia, make sure you do it on the emerald green Soca river. The colour of the water is amazing. Soca rafting were very good, they provide you with all the necessary equipment and the guides are very helpful. It was our first time experience and we really enjoyed it. Photos are Euro 4 each or else you can buy the whole cd of the group for Euro 10 which was worth it. The only thing which bothered me was that after the session the group must carry the dinghy up hill which is a bit tiring as it's quite heavy. But still I would recommend them as they are very good.

It was really an amazing experience for the three of us. Being in this beautiful landscape while doing things -Rafting, Canyoning and Hydrospeed- you have normally no possibility to do. The information and advice at the reception were perfect and we had the sweetest and most helpful guides in the world. Thank you for making our trip to Slowenia unforgettable.
