  • Enjoy a half-day kayaking adventure on the emerald colored Soca river.
  • See the beauty of Bovec, Slovenia.
  • Bring the whole family and experience some great outdoor fun.


One of the most beautiful places in Slovenia, Bovec is a treat for any visitor. And on this half-day adventure, I would like to guide you on a kayaking trip on the Soca river, which is located within Bovec.

Known as the Emerald Beauty, the Soca river is a gorgeous river. And unlike many rivers in the world it maintains its gorgeous emerald color throughout. Thus making it quite rare, which only adds to the wonder of kayaking on it.

Not only is the Soca river itself a source of great beauty in the area, but during this approximately 3 hour kayaking adventure, you will get to admire an abundance of sensational landscape. With the Julian Alps looming at a close enough distance to see their glory, you will be in a constant state of awe.

The kayaking itself is not overtly difficult. Hence why it is open to people as young as 8 years old.  The only requirement is that you know how to properly swim. However, other then that this trip is open to anybody. Hence making this an ideal trip for the whole family!

Exploring Slovenia is a wonderful opportunity. Full of wonderful spots, you can easily spend far more time in the country than you originally planned. And if you do visit, send me a request, and let me show you the glorious Soca river on this kayaking expedition in Bovec.

Would you like to do some kayaking closer to the capital city of Ljubljana? Then come and enjoy this half-day kayaking trip on the beautiful Sava river.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
