River Bob, Hydrospeed in the Soča Valley

This water activity is suitable for good swimmers, considering adequate water level, so that you may avoid most of the rocks while swimming and let yourself go with the fresh emerald green flow of the river.
Open Kayak, Sit on Top in the Soča Valley
Tackling the rapids of the emerald green River Soča is something rather special with an open kayak (sit on top), which is easier to control and is more stable and unsinkable. It is suitable for descents of less experienced rowers and for rowing on the lake. Sports agencies in the Soča Valley organise descents with open kayaks and choose appropriate routes for corresponding difficulty levels.
Paddle Board Trip, SUP in the Soča Valley
A descent with a paddle board (SUP) is one of the exciting ways to descend on the River Soča. In addition to descents on the River Soča, sports agencies organise activities at lakes Rabeljsko jezero and Most na Soči.
River Bug in the Soča Valley
A small inflatable vessel (riverbug), with which the River Soča becomes a real adventure, excels in incredible navigability. Sports agencies will provide all the required equipment and a guide to tackle the river rapids.
Bellyak in the Soča Valley
An exciting way to get to know the white-water, in which the participants lie with their bellies on the hull of the vessel, which is a mixture of a kayak and a paddling board, and use their hands to propel. A unique experience of tackling the rapids and the waves of the River Soča with experienced guides of the Soča Valley.
Canoe in the Soča Valley
Rowing the canoes on the calmer part of the River Soča is not demanding and is even appropriate for families with children if accompanied by a trained guide. 2–3 people can sit in one inflatable boat. If you are more enthused about independent navigation, rent a canoe for rowing on the lake near Most na Soči.
