Our whitewater rafting tour goes on the most challenging Soca rafting section, through a scenic gorge filled with white boulder garden and splashy class II-III whitewater. Be prepared to get wet!
Nobody stays dry, for sure!
Soca river is a perfect whitewater rafting funpark, so we would like to spend our time with surfing in the waves, jumping from bigger and smaller rocks, enjoying the slides on the buttom of our raft. In the end of the rafting tour you can try swimming in an easy rapid, to feel how powerful can be white water rivers.

Reach Soca river and RAFTING
We change next to Soca rafting river, and after the safety talk your adventure will begin! The Soca Rider van would be waiting for us in the end point of the Soca rafting tour, so you can change immediately, and we have a short drive back to Bovec!
In our office we would be happy to give you some advise what to see in the Soca valley, natural wonders, good excursions, mountain trails! And you can check our small shop where you can find Soca Rider T-shirts, hand made Stack beanies and jewelery.
We did the half-day whitewater rafting Slovenia session with our two teenage daughters (aged 19 and 15). Not being a strong swimmer, I was quite nervous beforehand. Our rafting guide (and one of the owners of Soca Rider) Casi, was absolutely brilliant. He is very safety conscious and made sure we were fully prepared with correct kit and instructions before we set off down the river. He is so well informed about the area and we stopped several times so that he could explain about the surrounding caves, waterfalls, mountains, etc. Casi also made it great fun ensuring that everyone on the boat got a good soaking! The trip is not at all rushed and Casi genuinely wants to make sure you have a great time and get your money's worth. We enjoyed it so much (and I felt so confident having him as a rafting guide) that we did another half-day whitewater rafting session with Casi two days later! It was one of the highlights of our two week tour of Slovenia.Sally
I must also mention Petra (co-owner) who drove us to and from the Soca River and ensured Casi had the camera and took plenty of photos. She sent us a link to download these photos before we had even returned from our holiday! This is something they do for free and something I'm sure other companies would charge for. Safety, customer service and the personal touch are definitely priorities for this small company and we definitely recommend them.
Highlight of our trip! Soca Rider was the perfect company for our first experience with whitewater river rafting. My boyfriend and I tried whitewater rafting in July 2014 during our trip to Slovenia, Bovec. We were making the reservation couple of weeks in advance from Qatar and Petra turned out to be very responsive and helpful in advising what activity is appropriate for us. On the ground, Soca Rider team carefully explained the safety rules and were very motivating and a lot of fun while on the river. I would recommend it to everyone!Aneta
These guy were the best! All the other comments where right. Awesome experience. Great crew. Really genuine people. The experience was well worth it. Our Bovec rafting tour was one of the highlights of our month long holiday in eastern Europe.Mark
