Explore Savinja River in a sit-on-top kayak with an experienced, local guide. This river in Upper Savinja Valley is suitable for both beginners and advanced kayakers as it offers diverse rapids, therefore, everyone will find it fun and enjoyable experience.

Kids are welcomed from 10 years old on, which makes it also a nice family activity for those who like to spend time actively. We use modern sit-on-top kayaks, which give your body more freedom than the average kayak during paddling on the river. This tour is a perfect blend of fun and discovering nature in a safe environment with certified guides. See you soon!

We were a small group (3 people + guide) so it was very casual and funny! All 3 of us were beginners, which was respected, but found quickly into the sports. Besides paddling I enjoyed jumping into the water from rocks or bridges.
