Rafting family tours in Slovenia

River Rafting

Come join the fun !

We will collect your family from one of the agreed hotel pick up points listed below and take you to the start point.

The Sava River is recommended for family activity holidays in Slovenia.  It has lots of challenges but tranquil parts to play in. Its the perfect combination of thrills and spills.

At the relevant start point you will be provided with neoprene’s, water shoes, life jacket, helmet and importantly ‘a paddle’. You will be allocated a skipper who will explain the paddling principles. Rafting will take around 1.5 to 2 hours depending on how fast your boat is.

En-route we will play games and have opportunities to swim; jump and generally get wet; wet; wet. At the end of the tour we hope you will feel invigorated and inspired by Slovenia’s beauty.

We will arrange transfers back to Ljubljana. For the Sava river tours, families will have extended time in Lake Bled. Something we highly recommend you experience.

Slovenia Adventure Holiday faqs


  • Is white water rafting in Slovenia suitable for a family active holiday?

    Yes we recommend rafting for active families on holiday in Slovenia with kids 10+. It is particularly suited for families with teenagers; this is a great age to do this activity.

  • What should we bring?

    You need a swim costume, warm clothes for afterwards, a snack for afterwards and bring a big smile – you will certainly leave with one.

  • Is insurance included?

    No. Please get rafting insurance. Grades 1-3.

  • How does white-water rafting in Slovenia compare to Europe?

    Every river is different, and every company is different; so just because you have done white water rafting in France or Spain doesn’t mean it will be the same or even similar to our rafting tours in Slovenia. We therefore kindly ask you to respect, listen and obey your skippers and they will ensure you get the maximum from your Slovenia rafting experience; which we believe rivals anything else in Europe.
