3 hrs
Occasionally sporty
From 10 years-old and up

This exciting, whitewater SUP excursion will take you on a great adventure on Slovenia's Soča River! Fun for everyone!

The Soča River is approximately 138 kilometres long (86 miles) and flows through Slovenia and Italy. This Alpine River is bordered by the impressive mountains of the Julian Alps and is characterized by its fast-flowing waters. As such, it's the perfect place to try whitewater SUP (stand-up paddle boarding) near Bovec!

After you've met your experienced guide at the Bovec Paddleboarding base, you will board a comfortable van and be shuttled to the starting point. Once you've arrived near the Soča river, you'll receive a briefing on whitewater safety and basic SUP and paddling techniques. Then, with your life jacket fastened, your whitewater SUP excursion near Bovec begins! In the company of your guide, you'll embark upon a fun-filled journey on the Soča River.

Don't worry, if standing up proves too hard for you when going over the rapids, you can always sit down and be assured of the paddleboard's stability (which is more stable than a kayak). About halfway through your SUP excursion on the Soča, you and your group will stop at a beautiful spot where you can have a snack and snap some photos. Once you're rested and refreshed, you'll paddle down the Soča River until you reach the activity endpoint and your guide drives you back to Bovec.
