The Paddling: 

Slovenia provides an incredible opportunity to push your paddling to the next level. With a range of grade 2, 3 and 4 white water available there's something for everyone to enjoy, and its the perfect environment to work on the technical and tactical skills needed to really style those lines. At Rapid Skills we believe there are only a handful of techniques and tactics required to paddle any grade of water, so throughout the week we will introduce these to you before continually reinforcing them until they are second nature.

The river we will be paddling on in Slovenia is called the Soča. Flowing through the spectacular Soča Valley, this one river has 10 different sections you can paddle that present a range of difficulty from grade 1 all the way up to grade 4. It is the perfect play ground for people to push themselves and really work on those river running skills, all while being a safe and enjoyable environment.

Getting to Slovenia: 

The easiest way to get to Slovenia is to fly from London Stanstead Airport to Trieste Airport in Italy. Before you arrive we will setup a group chat so that you can arrange car hire in Trieste as a group to drive to Bovec. We will transport your kayaks out to Slovenia for you and this will be arranged as a group.


Below is a summary of how we recommend you make the journey:


Arrival day, depart London Stanstead 00th April 2025 - Arrive in Trieste - Hire a car from Trieste and drive to Bovec, 1hr 30mins.


Departure day, 00th May 2025. Drive from Bovec back to Triste Airport 1hr 30mins. Catch flight back to the UK.

Accommodation and food:

We rent glamping cabins in a hamlet called Trnovo. We love this location for our accommodation as its right by the get on and off of one of our favourite sections. Being based centrally gives us great access to all the sections along the river and means we don't have to travel far each day to go paddling.

We offer this as self catering trip, as this allows the flexibility to cook communally, individually or head to the pub. There is a big supermarket to buy a range of snacks, breakfasts, lunches and dinners or head out and find a local restaurant which cook a variety of dishes all reasonably priced, and we highly recommend you try the pizza as, this so close to Italy, its some of the best in the world!
