Slovenia River Skills

Come and join us in the picturesque town of Bovec, Slovenia. Situated at the foot of Mt Kanin, Mt Rombon, and Mt Mangart the gateway to the Julian Alps. The aim of the week is for you to spend time on the multiple sections of the stunning Soca River with our team of experienced coaches to help you develop and progress your White Water Kayaking.

Although being part of a group, this trip is tailored to suit you as individuals on and off the water. Remember this is a holiday in an amazing setting with lots to enjoy as well as kayaking

Within 2 minutes walk of your accommodation for the week, you have beautiful coffee shops and bars along with local grocery stores, restaurants, fresh fruit stalls and bakery stalls. There are numerous walks with magnificent scenery to be enjoyed. Maps of the local area can be found at the information centre, no more than two minutes walk from the free parking in Bovec town.

Once off the river, there will be the opportunity to take advantage of the coaches who will be more than happy to share their knowledge and help you to experience more of the local areas before you dine in the evenings.

Food is not included in the price so down to you as individuals or to arrange as a group. You have a kitchen in the accommodation and a large dining area inside or out. A great set up for group dining, drinks and to unwind ready for the next unforgettable day.

To make your travel even easier, our team are happy to take your boat and paddle over so you can fly in, hire a car and relax knowing your own boat is ready for you on arrival. (Subject to dropping off at RTBA)
