Family Rafting Bovec
The name of the trip itself tells us that this rafting trip is dedicated to spending some quality time as a family. And not just as any family, but the ones, that are proud to have little brave rafters who just turned 5 or a year or two more. The family rafting trip is adapted especially to those families with smaller kids who are not yet advised to join the classic rafting section. Often we meet little rafting enthusiasts, who just need a little extra spinach before they can hit the most challenging part of the river. Therefore our guides carefully choose a section that is appropriate for them to fully enjoy the whitewater adventure but with some more flat sections of the river and easy class I rapids. This program normally takes part in the section Čezsoča – Boka / Srpenica 1, which extends in 6 kilometres.
Our staff and guides are not just specialised whitewater admirers but also experienced and enthusiastic animators who know exactly how our little adventurers should experience whitewater. We will spend 1,5h on the river playing various games and listening to incredible historical stories. Some say, there is even a dragon living in the little Boka cave, which is located just right of the Boka waterfall which we will also pass on our adventure. Together our adventure will take us approximately 3 hours.
- Minimum participants: 2,
- maximum rafters on one boat: 8 plus the guide,
- normally larger families with smaller kids have the boat and the guide exclusively for them,
- sometimes it happens that we can combine 2 families of rafters or we combine families based on the age of the kids and the number of the family members which makes it a perfect way to meet fellow rafters and make friends with guests from all over the world.
How difficult is family rafting?
All of our trips are guided, which means a highly qualified, licensed guide guides your raft and gives directions and safety instructions. Family rafting is the easiest among the activities, but we require our adventurers to be healthy. If any of our participants have any medical issues that require attention, you can without hesitation inform our staff and the guides. In classic rafting programs swimming knowledge is mandatory, but since family rafting is appropriate for kids from the age of 5, their swimming knowledge can be as much as basic floating and feet kicking.
We visit the easiest part of the river that classifies in grade I-II (VI is the highest). The family rafting trip is adapted especially to families with smaller kids who are not yet advised to join the classic rafting section. Often we meet little rafting enthusiasts, who just need a little extra time before they can hit the most challenging part of the river and the family rafting is a fantastic introduction to the world of whitewater sports.
