Absolute Slovenia and the Soča River itself is ideally suited for the grade 2 / 3 paddler who wants to sharpen up their skills, become a more efficient in harder water and work on nailing lines with style. Our highly qualified and experienced coaches will spend time observing you and analyse your existing skill set and performance on the river, and discuss your individual needs and goals for your time with us.
This course is run in a small group of 4 people where you can experience the benefits of peer learning and shared experiences, but the emphasis is very much on you. We aim to have you leave your time with us with improved boat control, confidence and invigorated enthusiasm for white water kayaking.
We pride ourselves on proving a truly immersive and culture experience for those who join us on our expedition, we provide all coaches and river guides, accommodation, meals and transport excluding flights, so that after a hard day on the river you can relax, unwind and take in the breath taking views leaving all the arrangements to us.
Arriving in Slovenia we’ll meet in Bovec, however those that choose to fly into Ljubljana Airport will be met by arrangements to travel to Bovec. Upon arrival we’ll meet, greet and in time head out for dinner for everyone to experience a traditional Slovene meal. This also provides a great opportunity for everybody to initially get to know each other, discuss the coming week and enjoy some great food.
Bovec is a small picturesque mountain town in the Soča Valley and will be our home for the next 7 days. A number of evening workshops will run to help our coaches build up a picture of you, your goals and aspirations for the week and to bond as a group. Part of these workshops will be a general equipment check to make sure everybody is adequately prepared for a weeks paddling.
The second day is all about suiting up, and getting out there for a days white water kayaking. Our experienced coaches will spend a great deal of time observing you and the group, analysing your paddling and performance on the river and applying some progressive coaching to enable us to work together to get the best outcome for you.
During the evenings our coaches will be available to provide feedback workshops, both on an individual and group basis, with photos, video playback and notes taken throughout the day to enhance your learning
Over the course of the week our coaches will help you and to sharpen up your strokes, nail lines and truly get an appreciation for alpine paddling. All logistical operations are covered and are there to support yourself, leaving you to paddle, learn, enjoy your surroundings and relax.
All good things must come to and end, and on day 7 say our goodbyes. We aim to have you leave your time with us with improved boat control, confidence and invigorated enthusiasm for white water kayaking buzzing to return to Slovenia.
During the summer season the air temperature is high, however the river water is incredibly cold and we advise you pack appropriately for these conditions. Our coaches will be appropriately equipped to lead the group under any eventuality, and therefore if you’re used to carrying significant equipment for your usual peer group we advise you take this as an opportunity to slim your equipment down.
