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.
Splash and paddle. That sums up this activity, which is awesome by the way. Los of waterfalls, river rapids and adrenaline flowing currents. Definitely a day that will live long in our memory! Don’t be nervous about anything and talk to the staff on the phone if worried. Great day out.

Once you have got your basic paddle technique down, kayaking is one of the most rewarding river activities you can do. Our sports instructors took us through the steps, which gave myself and kids full confidence. During the morning the focus was on skill and technique. The afternoon, was our chance to river test our skills on Grade II rapids. River kayaking in Slovenia is a vital ingredient of any family active holiday. Definitely book this trip. We did it as part of a 7 night week long adventure holiday. It’s a long and full day, but one of the most rewarding.

Heading into the nearby countryside was a real joy. Our driver was so much fun and full of great facts to keep my teenagers awake and engaged. Under the close attention of our amazing guides, we kayaked the river and waterfalls. We even enjoyed a cooling swim and got thoroughly wet on the epic water drops. River kayaking in Slovenia as a family is incredible fun, neither too extreme or tame, always offering the perfect balance for my family of five (youngest was 13 years, eldest 22 years). The adventure will be like no other you’ve ever experienced. Slovenia is epic fun.

Guides were superb! They made everything fun but were also very professional. I had total confidence in their kayaking skills and felt very safe. They gave good encouragement when people were nervous and introduced us gradually to skills and found fun tasks to build our confidence. I have thoroughly enjoyed my day and cannot think of anything to criticize. Thank you very much!
