Reviews of Soca Rider

Soca Rider won the Certificate of Excellence in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Me and my boyfriend spent one week in Slovenia last summer. We wanted to try out extreme sports in the Soca valley such as whitewater rafting and kayaking. Luckily we chose Soca Rider, and we didnt regret it, because they were very helpful, friendly, encouraging and professional. We learnt a lot about whitewater kayaking, rafting, different technices, and safety mesures. Overall we had a lot of fun, and we cant wait to repeat this great experience!
It has been a tradition for us to visit Bovec and the Soca valley for an outdoor adventure weekend every year. Petra, Csaszi and their team knows the river very well ensuring us a perfect experience every year. No matter that the water level is high, extremely high or lower they always find the best program, tailored for our skills, needs and abilities. We are always instructed well what to do and how to do. They always respect our abilities and skills and let us find our limits (or go beyond what we thought that our limits are) but the adventure is always safe, no superfluous risk is taken. No matter that we want to ride a raft or to go kayaking they always find the way to get the maximum out of the planned program. They are flexible and make perfect suggestions considering what could be the best for us. That is the reason why there is no question that we are choosing Soca Rider every time without any question.
Very good experiences with the company. Safe all the time, but full of adrenalin & flow feeling. The boys (10-11 years ) enjoyed very much, if it was up to them we would repeat as soon as possible especially the rafting part ! Small company, well organised, personal attention.

  • Csaszi

    Founder, guide
    I love waters from my childhood. I started as a flat water canoe competitor, later I navigated my sea kayak along the sea coast and around many islands of Croatia, on the Adriatic. Recently I paddle mostly in whitewater kayak, but I still like every kind of water. In the time of the university I was working during the weekends as a rafting guide in Slovakia, Austria and Slovenia. After a few years of unsuccessful attempt as a horticultural engineer, I returned to the whitewater. I was working as a guide almost every day since 2008. Summertime in Slovenia, wintertime in Chile. Now, I am using the experience of many years in our company. In my free time of course I go cycling, or to the mountains, or I ride the Soča with my kayak. The Soča river is one of the most beautiful rivers I have ever paddled and this is the valley, where I am very glad to guide you!
  • Petra

    Founder, Contact manager
    hanks to my parents, I was sitting in a boat very early, mostly on flat waters of Hungary at first, and later on whitewaters of Austria as well. Later I was falling in love with the sea kayaking: a lot of water, huge distances, remote islands with all the beauty and danger of it. I went to South America spending half year there with Gyula, and I could see really high quality of whitewaters, and what does it mean, living close to the nature? From that time, there was no option to return to a big city and to my "old" life. We moved to Slovenia, to Bovec. I have a pharmacist degree, and I have thought I will cure the people with drugs, but I found something in Slovenia, what is able to cure in a better way. This is, what I would like to show you. I am always glad to go to the water, or to ride my bike roaming the countryside, or so happily put on my boots to go to the mountains of Julian Alps! This is my real world!
