My husband and I recently did the half day rafting trip with Soca Rider, and it was amazing! The scenery is spectacular and the rafting trip was super fun! Sebastian was our guide, and he was patient, helpful, and encouraging throughout the entire trip. The river was thrilling, but we felt completely safe the whole time. There was a place on the river where we brought the raft to shore, and had the option of jumping into a calm, deep part of the river from about 15 feet up - I was scared at first, but then I tried it and I was so happy I did! Our guide had a camera with him and took pictures of our adventure, and Soca Rider emailed us the photos for no additional fee, which I found to be a wonderful touch. Petra at the Soca Rider office was organized and responsive from the moment we first made email contact with them to inquire about booking a tour. If you are in Slovenia, rafting the Soca river is a wonderful experience, and Soca Rider is the perfect outfitter to take you!
A quick note about the weather: Slovenia is having a very rainy summer, and rain seems to be predicted quite often. However, the weather forecast does not always tell the full story, so don't let it deter you. During the 2 weeks I was there, rain was predicted every day, but there would always be times when it cleared. On the day we went rafting, storms were predicted, but it was sunny and beautiful the whole time. And even if you get a little rain, rafting is the perfect thing to do because you will be wet anyway, and Soca Rider will make sure you are prepared with a wetsuit and paddle jacket!
