Rafting in Slovenia offers the chance to explore some of the majesty of this country, whilst at the same time enjoying what is primarily an adrenaline based adventure. From the more casual to the extreme, Slovenia's rivers offer it all. Arguably the best rafting river is the Soča as it wends it way along the breathtaking beauty of the Soča Valley. That's not to say that the Upper Savinja, Sava, Kolpa and Krka Rivers will not peak your interest and generate ample amounts of adrenaline. No matter which river you choose, the scenery and adventure will not disappoint.
Slovenia's best rafting and most breathtaking river scenery is arguably on the Soča River; one of Slovenia's most beautiful rivers. Rafting is great for people wanting to experience the wild Soča River but who do not want to go it alone in a kayak - and is suitable for complete beginners as well as kids as young as 5.
Upper Savinja River
There is good rafting possible on the Upper Savinja River with some major centres around Luče and Ljubno. The upper stream is great for those wanting more adventure, whilst around Luče the river widens and becomes slower.
Forming a natural border between Slovenia and Croatia the Kolpa River wends its way through a fertile valley; part of what remains of unspoiled Europe. Starting in Oscilnica it is possible to use mini-rafts on the Kolpa River criss-crossing both countries on the numerous rapids towards Brod na Kolpi.
The Krka River is suitable for rafting between the villages of Smihel and Žužemberk and makes an excellent day trip offered by a variety of local specialists.
