The Soča has its source deep in the Julian Alps, sourrounded by the beautiful Triglav National Park. In the vicinity of Bovec we will set up our camp, depending on the favored camping or holiday home. From this Base we will run three beutiful River Sections. You can take a closer look at these sections with description given in the following itinerary under these links (in german):
- [Soča] (http://www.kajaktour.de/soca.htm)
- [Koritnica] (http://www.kajaktour.de/koritnica.htm)
- Day 0 (arrival): We meet at an agreed meeting point near Bovec in the evening to get to know each other, it is also possible to arrive on the morning of the first day of the tour.
- Day 1: In the morning we run the very simple “housewife route” (WW 1-2), a very easy part of the Soča to learn how to use the rafts. After a lunch break we will run the “home route” (WW 2) and continue until the start of the housewife route, which we already did in the morning.
- Day 2: In the morning we practice white water swimming at the third Soča Gorge and on the house route. After a lunch break, we will drive through the Koritnica Gorge (WW 2 -3+), a super beautiful, sportive section. Here you can improve your steering skills and will be really challenged for the first time!
- Day 3: On the third day we run the section from Sprenica 1 to the slalom course. On this section there is the interesting “cemetery route” (WW 3+) (don't worry, the name comes from the many stones;). At the end of the cemetery route, the “slalom route” (WW 4) is ahead of us as a bonus. I will only offer this last slalom section as a final route for participants who have proven a safe and very good boat control in the previous days. In the evening on the third day the tour is officially over.
The tour takes place from 2 participants, a maximum of 8 participants can register.
