This half-day inflatable kayak tour is ideal for those looking for something more challenging than rafting, but who don’t have a lot of experience with kayaking. Due to their design, the one-person Guppy and the two-person Ducky are much more stable than the traditional plastic kayak, making learning how to control them much easier.

The first section of the river is easier, so you have some time to practice what you've learned. The second section is longer and more fun, replete with a stunning open gorge with big rocks, waves, and rapids (Class II-III). Dur...

We had a perfect tour with our tour guide Ben! It was just the two of us and he explained everything really well and we had a lot of fun sliding, jumping, swimming and climbing through the canyon! Even though there was a problem with the GoPro in the beginning, he went above and beyond and took pictures and videos with his personal phone! We can only recommend Ben and the canyoning tour and would do it again anytime! André and Carolin
Awesome guide, we've been clearly lucky (it was on Monday and just the two of us) because he brought us to the toughest part of the river which is not always accessible. We were beginners and we had very much fun (even my friend who flipped twice). Definitely recommended if you're looking for adrenaline too.
We did for the first time Kayaking. It was difficult but we get some good instructions from our guide. And that makes it some easyer and fun to do it.
The trip was awesome and the two guides were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely do it again!
Great experience! A must-do in your passing through Bovec Great company, great guide!
