As the snow melts on the many mountains of Slovenia, its rivers are filled with water which provides an incredible rafting and kayaking experience.

Here you can pick a river depending on your experience—thankfully Slovenia has many many rivers to offer. The most adrenaline-boosting rides you can experience can be found on fast rivers like Savina, Kolpa, Sava, and Krka.

The more calm and suitable for rating is the beautiful Soča which flows through a beautiful green valley. An even more laid-back experience can be had if you rent equipment on the coast of one of many Slovenian lakes. But still no matter which waters you choose, a guide is recommended, so that you’ll enjoy not only an exciting but also a safe ride.

Soča River is officially open for water sports from mid-March through August. Most of the rafting and kayaking companies operate from late spring through summer, and some of them until late October. So, we recommend April-October as a general timeframe for rafting and kayaking in Slovenia.
