Soca SUP river trip – whitewater stand up paddleboarding
SUP trips are quite popular in the Bled region. If you are looking for something more adventurous than SUP Bled lake or SUP Bohinj lake, you are in for a challenge at Bovec paddleboarding. Join us in Soca Valley on the Soca river whitewater SUP trip!
At first, it is quite a challenge to keep standing when going through the rapids, but don’t let that scare you off. If you find it too hard to do, you can always sit down and enjoy the stability of the paddleboard (very stable compared to kayak).
When we arrive at our starting point next to the emerald Soca river, we will first have a briefing on river safety and practice paddling. When we are ready, we will start our trip down the Soca river. About halfway through, we will take a break on a beautiful beach and have a little snack. After 1,5h on the river, we reach the finish. The van will be waiting for us there with our belongings and clothes. When we dress up, we will drive back to Bovec. The entire tour would take about 3h from our day.
- Minimum number of guests: 2 guests,
