Full description
First you'll be picked up at your accommodation and driven to the starting location (around 10 minute drive from Bled). Then you will be welcomed by the team members, who will explain to you the gear-up procedure. When all participants are ready, you'll be assigned to a boat that will take you down the river (maximum number of adults per boat is 8). Each guide will go through the safety guidelines and explain the use of the equipment as well as the paddling instructions. When all the boats are ready the journey down the beautiful Sava River will begin. You'll be traveling through stunning scenery and down many fun rapids. About midway, there will be a stop and if you feel like it you'll be allowed to swim down with the river's current, under the supervision of your guides. Here, your guide will also take a group photo. The stop will last for about 15-20 minutes and then it's back to the boats and down the river again. Close to the exit location, you will get to see the beautiful merging of the Sava Dolinka (the river you just rafted) and the Sava Bohinjka (flows from the Bohinj Lake). After that there'll be short and gentle float to the finish where the vans will be awaiting your arrival.

    The tour was good so far, the staff was nice. You can, if you come from further away. does not have a hotel in / around Bled, also park in the pampas and will be picked up. I think it's a shame that there is no real "building" where you can store your valuables or take a shower at the end. You can of course leave your bag in the car, everything was still there afterwards - but of course it would be better if you had a building with lockers or something similar, but there is no one here. Apart from that, you can absolutely recommend rafting with this provider. Nice route, even if the Soca (about 1.5 hours by car, e.g. from Bovec) is more exciting, I also found the river (Sava or Sava Dolinca) traveled here very beautiful. Photos then have to be requested separately after a few days, e-mail address transmission probably does not work with getyourguide (the statement was that the photos are sent automatically). But after request they came, so far everything was great :-)

    Great service, good guides, good communication, they were flexible also for last minute booking, the child's ticket price was 5 Euro cheaper than at other service providers. Do not miss this adventure if you have a few emptry hours in Bled.
