Prepare for the activity

Meeting point

Please be at the meeting point at least 10 minutes before the activity start time. The meeting point is at the HungaroRaft Raft Shack, which is a 1-minute walk from the center of Bovec. The road is unnamed so it is recommended to use a map app. Search for "HungaroRaft, Adventure Center Bovec". From the main square, go toward the valley on a narrow street at the right of Kavarna Cafe. Turn left at the end of the road then go 50 meters uphill and you will see the HungaroRaft's beach flags and the Raft Shack.

Me and my partner found this kayaking trip randomly in Google. Everything went great and was totally worth it! We went early morning (8.15) and there were only 4 of us in the group, which was great. We gathered up in the meeting point near the center of the city. We were provided safety equipment and then we were transported to the riverside. The weather was good and sunny (even though the forecast predicted rain and clouds only), our guide was supercool and nature amazing (we saw two deers!). The guide advised us well, motivated, made some jokes and was generally very helpful.

Great outdoor experience with fun and action guaranteed

We can really recommend this activity. I was a little bit afraid of too much „dry run“ and how to hold the paddle etc... but it really was a helpful introduction before we started paddling! We were just two people with our guide and he did a very individual program with us. Whenever we wanted tough waves we got it. Perfect customer orientation! Furthermore we did some cliff jumping and swimming.

It started messy. According to the organization on site we had booked a different tour than the one we had actually done. Canoeing instead of kayaking. After some puzzling we solved the problem and so we were able to go kayaking with guide Haider to the Soca river. We were lucky, only the two of us! Haider was a very good guide. He clearly had a lot of experience, gave clear explanations. Spoke English well. Kayaking at different levels of difficulty. Experience not to forget!
