Spend a pleasant day in good company and with a touch of adrenaline.

Rafting is an experience that awakens all your senses. An adrenaline experience, which includes avoiding rocks, overcoming rapids, discovering one’s own limits and enjoying time in nature, is appropriate for all generations.

Rafting on the upper part of Sava Bohinjka river

How does it work?

This is a whitewater rafting trip in regular (6-8 people) or adventure rafts (2-3 people). The difference between the two experiences is that the larger boat is operated by an experienced guide with a steering oar, while a team of 6 to 8 people assists with the rowing. You steer the adventure rafts yourself, while a guide accompanies you in the kayak and advises you on which side of the river to take.

Rafting takes place on the upper part of the Sava Bohinjka River. Sava Bohinjka River is quite suitable for rafting with ordinary rafts especially during the spring and autumn, only exceptionally in July or August. Adventure rafts do not require such high water levels and the programme is therefore feasible even in the summer months.

Clarifications and recommendations

Rafters use the adventure rafts. These are suitable for two or three persons. The rafting guide will only direct you and tell you on which side of the river you have to paddle.

The river’s difficulty is ideal for this form of rafting. We will start rafting in Soteska under the dam – halfway between Bohinj and Bled, and finish below Bohinjska Bela.

Rafting instructors will chose appropriate neoprene suit, shoes and life vests. You will be driven by a shuttle to the entry point and taken back to the starting point when the rafting tour is ended.
