Save the rivers

The beginning of the season was actually quite loud. An action, actually a protest of some sort was made to keep our gorgeous environment at peace.

We all know how capital is leading our world and how we have to exploit all natural reassures to keep the life at movement. But what we don’t know is, that for what we want and need, there can be alternatives, which can keep our rivers intact. Project Balkan Rivers Tour is an answer to a dam craze Balkan is facing currently.

The initiators say, that the idea was born in the bar, where a lot of good ideas are made. But joke aside, they found out that the region is filled with ignorance about dam issue and not many people have the knowledge about why, when, where the dams are build and no knowledge about the consequences it brings. The project is about saving the last pristine Rivers in Europe. The people who love Rivers the most are united. They want to show the world how much they care about the flowing emerald secrets.

The project started in April this year in Slovenia, if we are more accurate, on the 16th and ended on May 20th in Albania. It encompassed 6 countries, 18 rivers and in 35 days it connected all of the outdoor freaks, enthusiasts and also nature and science. They travelled the Balkan to raise awareness and address dam politics and leaders in the field of hydro-energetics. The tour was led by Rok Rozman, former Olympic athlete in rowing, biologist, kayaker and so on. The basic aim is to reconnect people with nature. The Balkan Rivers Tour also took part in the Soča valley, paddling on the Soča river, Koritnica and Učja river, which is also a river exposed to dam building. Later on they went on the Balkan route and paddle rivers such as the Tara river, Vjosa, Sana, Neretva and so on. It was all about river conservation, which is an aspect which we all have to acknowledge.

Reviews of our whitewater programs

  • We went out a few times with Soca Rider and couldn't have had a more wonderful experience. They're family run, which really shows in their care and personal interest in everyone having a positive experience, rather than being on a standard tour with a larger company. They were also very tailored to what we wanted to do. I was quite nervous but the attention and care really helped me. Really hoping to return and I've been recommending them to friends and colleagues on our return to England. A big thank you to Petra and Gyula. We hope to see you both again.
  • We were a family of 5 with mixed kids ages ranging from 7 to 17. We decided to take Soca Rider family rafting and enjoyed every minute of it. The reservation was super easy and friendly and the email communication was fast. we told Soca Rider we need to catch the car train back and they recommended on the best timing to take the rafting. Finding the place in Bovec was easy and the prep was smooth. Everything were best organized - the transportation to the rafting, the super friendly guides, the equipment was in top shape and the rafting itself include both rafting time and water games. Overall, highly recommended!!
