We meet in the SportMIX rafting Bovec agency where you will be warmly greeted by our office staff. At the front desk, you will be asked to sign a waiver form and you will be acquainted with your guide.
The guide will give you all of the necessary equipment. We don’t put the equipment on at the agency, but we will collect everything in a pack and we will change at the starting point next to the river. Therefore we advise wearing your bathing suit already under your clothes when you come to the office. You can leave your valuables in the lockers in the office. We recommend you leave only valuables such as wallets, jewellery and personal documents. Dry clothes, underwear and towels you can take with you and leave them in the van with our driver.
Together with the guide you follow the driver and sit in the van.
You drive to the starting point (approximately 10 min drive).
At the starting point, we change into our gear, leave the dry clothes with our driver and start the trip with our guide.
Before you start your descent, the guide provides information about safety and after that, you will start your adventure.
We begin our trip on a calmer section of the Soca river, where we first practice the basic paddle technique and we continue our descent as well on rapids class I-VI. On the trip, we also stop for different activities, for instance, swimming, raft-sliding and jumping from boulders at various altitudes. At the end of the trip, our driver will be already waiting for us, where we will change back into our dry clothes and board the van to drive back to SportMIX agency in Bovec city centre (approximately 20 min drive). In the office, we will conclude our trip by checking out the pictures taken by our drivers and the guide, arranging the formalities and exchanging farewells until next time.
Because we would like to make your Soca rafting experience unforgettable, we personalize the number of guests and arrange it accordingly to the daily logistics. We require a minimum number of participants for all the rafting trips, which is set to 2 guests. If you are alone, don’t worry, we will join you in a group. Couples – it’s more likely you will also share a boat with more adventurers. If you are a family or a group of friends, you might also have the boat to yourselves, of course with the guide. If you are in doubt or worried, how would you fit in, contact us without hesitation and we will customize your trip in a way that everyone will leave our boats pleased. Our groups are normally smaller, but we also organize closed individually custom themed team buildings.
