Soca Kayak Camp
The soca is one of the most beautiful and most interesting rivers in Europe.
The beautiful colour of the water, the countless playspots and the lush green of the Slovenian forests make the valley of the Soca a very special holiday destination for kayakers. The Soca and its tributaries have many sections up to the 4th level of difficulty and are therefore very well suited for our courses.

Do you feel comfortable on Whitewater II and want to finally boot into more difficult water? Or are you often on Whitewater III anyway, but would like to be a bit more sovereign? Then this is your course. We'll show you how much fun more gradient and more water pressure is if you just trust in your technique.
We also focus on the use of the current, planning of lines and tactics within the group. The aim of the course is to gain more confidence in whitewater III. The Soca offers us a perfect practice area for this! The labyrinths of white limestone rocks hold innumerable eddys and boofs.
