Rain is usually not a problem for rafting. You will be wet anyway, so yes, rafting will take place in the rain as well. The only exception might be a heavy thunderstorm. In this case we might need to pospone the tour or even cancel it.
Canyoning however is a bit more weather sensitive. In case of very bad weather forecast, we will call you and let you know if your canyoning tour will need to be postponed or canceled.
We recommend checking the weather forecast at https://vreme.arso.gov.si/napoved/Bovec/graf/0
Please ensure you bring swimwear to wear underneath the wetsuits provided. We recommend bringing a towel for your convenience.
The Sušec beginner canyoning tour is suitable for families with young children as well as adults that might be unsure about going for the intermediate tour. However, most somewhat sporty adults (even beginners) will go for the intermediate canyoning tour Fratarica. The Predelica canyoning tour will suit those who have at least some previous canyoning experience.

We don’t recommend that, since there’s a very high chance you will lose or damage it and you won’t be able to take many photos anyway since you will need to use your hands either for paddling or rappelling. Instead we will take photos for you.
NATURE AND ENVIRONMENT
We only organize our rafting and canyoning tours for small groups of people and we always try to plan our tours at times, when the river is less busy, to protect our environment and of course to make sure our guests can enjoy the beauty of the river.
Educating our guests about the local environment and wildlife is important to us. All visitors are required to follow the Leave No Trace principles and respect the natural environment. Our rafting and canyoning tours in the Soča valley, are eco-friendly activities that allow visitors to experience the natural beauty of the region in a respectful and sustainable way.
