What we’ll do
The minimum number of persons is 2 participants. The maximum is 10 persons in a group. We provide you with all the necessary equipment that is already included in the price of the kayak school.

We run the kayak school twice for two hours, in the morning and the afternoon. You will learn the basic techniques of rowing, kayaking straight and stopping in countercurrents. The one-day kayak school takes place on a section with level I-II rapids.
TWO-DAY SCHOOL (8 hours)
We run the kayak school for two days. You will go to the water twice for two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. You will learn the basic techniques of rowing, kayaking straight, stopping in countercurrents, joining the mainstream and crossing the river. The two-day kayak school takes place on a section with level II-III rapids.
We adapt the advanced kayak school to the prior knowledge and skills of each group. An advanced kayak school usually lasts three to five days, on different sections of the Soča River. In the advanced kayak school, you will learn more demanding kayaking techniques. If you are already an experienced kayaker, you will gain new skills that will help you overcome more demanding sections of the Soča River. The condition for inclusion in the Advanced Kayak School is that the participants are proficient in the Eskimo water plant.
