Join us on this guided kayak adventure and enjoy paddling in Tolmin, Slovenia. If you are looking for an awesome one-time kayaking experience on the Soča river, we without hesitation recommend you to try our guided kayak descent, where you will paddle into the magical currents of the river, together with an experienced and professional whitewater kayak instructor. You will not only glide on the mystical stretches and secret corners of the river, but you will also be able to experience the wilderness of whitewater rapids. The guided kayak descent offers a quick intro into the sport of kayaking and a chance to already be prepared to hit some waves, whereas on a kayak course you are slowly learning and perfecting how to handle a kayak in the currents, counter currents and also whitewater rapids. Secondly, the type of the boat is different. The descent is carried out in open kayaks (sit-on-tops), the kayak course, on the other hand, is performed in classic closed (with a spray skirt) kayaks. In both cases before hitting the waves, the guide will provide instructions about safety, after which you will start your 7 km guided kayak descent with sit-on-top kayaks. The starting point will be determined by the guide and after the first practice rowing strokes, you will begin the 1,5 h river adventure. You can leave your valuables in the lockers in the office. We recommend you leave only valuables such as wallets, jewelry and personal documents. Dry clothes, underwear and towels you can take with you and leave it in the van with our driver. We advise wearing your bathing suit already under your clothes when you come to the office. Together with the guide you follow the driver and sit in the van. You drive to the starting point (approximately 5 min drive). At the starting point we change into our gear, we leave the dry clothes with our driver and we start the trip with our guide. Before you start your descent, the guide provides information about safety and you start your adventure. We start our trip on a calmer section of the river, where we first practice the basic kayaking technique and we continue our descent as well on rapids class I-II. At the end of the trip, our driver will be already waiting for us, where we will change back into our dry clothes and board the van to drive back to SportMIX agency in Bovec city centre (approximately 10 min drive). In the office, we will check out the pictures taken by our drivers and the guide, arrange the formalities and exchange farewells until next time.
