Kayaking and canoeing adventures

Explore Lake Bohinj and Sava Bohinjka from the water surface.

It only takes a few strokes of the paddle to take you to a wonderful world of beauty, peace and tranquillity. Lake Bohinj is the perfect place for your first swings into a new adventure, as you can explore it on your own. The Sava Bohinjka is more challenging. We recommend organised excursions, where safety, professional guidance and relaxed company are guaranteed. Bohinj does not have the most challenging rapids, but they are easily accessible by car (the lower Sava Bohinjka, Radovna, Soča).
