White Water Packrafting Trainings Soča (Slovenia)

White Water Packrafting in the Valley of Soča and Koritnica

The valley of Soča and Koritnica are offering white water action in stunning scenery. During these five days of combined hiking and white water adventure, you will be doing day trips with light luggage and a packraft. In the river canyons of Soča and Koritnica, you will learn riding techniques, have a lot of fun and experience the freedom of white water paddling on packrafts.

You will learn and develop individually and extensively how to ride on easy to challenging white water of level III/IV. During the day trips, you will learn white water security, special packrafting techniques in the river and on gravel banks at the waterside.

The open training is for beginners in good health as well as packrafters with little previous experience. Our advanced trainings are rather for experienced paddlers, who want to deepen their skills. With two guides, we can be flexible enough to meet the different levels of knowledge within the group.

Of course, you can rent the complete packrafting equipment, as well as the white water safety gear from us. Additionally, you can also take the chance and try out different equipment of our fleet.

In the evening, we sit together at a cozy bonfire at our base camp and let the day pass.

Join us on the original white water packrafting trip to the valley of Soča. We are packrafting enthusiasts and are living for packrafting, the whole season through, from Slovenia to Iceland. We take this passion to every trip and training we do.

Landscape and scenery: Dream destination, the valley of Soča

The river Soča with its turquoise crystal clear water is a place of longing for paddlers all over the world. It runs from its source at the foot of the Julian Alps in the Northwest of Slovenia, through an open valley, till it ends in the Mediterranean Sea. This is the reason for very mild weather even in late summer.

White water packrafting, within this impressive scenery of the Triglav National Park, is a unique experience. Under fantastic conditions, you can combine fun while improving your paddling skills, in partly challenging white water, and enjoy the diverse, adventurous canyons and gorges around Bovec.

The area is ideal for packrafting. We will guide you by foot as well as in packrafts, through breathtaking canyons, along famous drops like "Bunkerschwall" or "Frauenschlucker", beautiful creek runs and highlights like the cemetery track.

The light weighted packrafting equipment allows us to easily combine hiking with white water action. We will hike to entry sites or walk back to the campsite after a white water ride, so we can enjoy the landscape twice – by boat and by foot.

The valley of Soča and the Triclav National Park offers, next to the white water action, many other adventures and activities, which you can combine with this trip. We would be happy to help you gather more information. Please ask us directly!
