It is surprisingly simple and easy to navigate a kayak in the rapids. Our guides will be there every step of the way. The river sections we choose are some of the safe places for kayaking in Europe whilst still being exciting. Even daring teenagers will love this excursion in the wild.

River Kayaking

Come join the fun!

Our kayaking tour starts from Ljubljana hotels listed below. We will provide you with all other necessary equipment. After a short drive, we arrive to our start point where you’ll meet your guides and we’ll start with the safety instructions for kayaking.

Once we are confident you can kayak, the adventure starts. You’ll first paddle through some very gentle rapids and gain some confidence and experience for more wilder water further downstream. Leave all your worries aside; our family kayaking tour is design to be perfectly safe for kids ages 12+ and you are in the safe hands of our instructors along the way. We will have 2 swim stops along the way to jump, swim, splash and enjoy the clear refreshing water.
