Canyoning is 100% of adventure and a great fun!


Short description

Challenge yourself in our natural Aquapark, in the Susec Gorge! Plunge down water polished slides, jump off cliffs, abseil waterfalls! Climb, swim and float through an amazing world of water- sculpted rock, deep clear pools and spectacular waterfalls! We recommend this activity for people with some water confidence with a big focus of fun!

After a half an hour easy uphill walk, we arrive to the starting point of our canyoning trip. There, your guide will explain you, how to move on the rocks, how to slide and jump the waterfalls. Under the watchful eye of your guide, you’ll make the journey down natural rock canyons, water-polished chutes, waterfalls, pools and streams.

Pure adventure in crystal clean water

The first slides and jumps are the smallest ones, so the timid ones have time to get a taste of canyoning and pick up some technics for jumping and sliding. Dont be afraid, you dont have to jump immediately to the depth with a superhuman courage.

Reviews of Soca Rider

Soca Rider won the Certificate of Excellence in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

I loved doing this, It was the best thing I did in my holiday. Me and our friends had so much fun. And it was really handy they had a special helmet for a GoPro, So we filmed everything! :D
Precise, helfull, flexible!! Really kind and easy going team! Try it yourself! Adventure but safe!!!
First time canyoning. It was our first experience with canyoning so far and we loved it. Nothing too exhausting, but you are still doing a sport. Not too scary jumps/slides/climbes, but you still feel the adrenalin rush. Plus all people from the company we met were nice and professionals.

  • Csaszi

    Founder, guide
    I love waters from my childhood. I started as a flat water canoe competitor, later I navigated my sea kayak along the sea coast and around many islands of Croatia, on the Adriatic. Recently I paddle mostly in whitewater kayak, but I still like every kind of water. In the time of the university I was working during the weekends as a rafting guide in Slovakia, Austria and Slovenia. After a few years of unsuccessful attempt as a horticultural engineer, I returned to the whitewater. I was working as a guide almost every day since 2008. Summertime in Slovenia, wintertime in Chile. Now, I am using the experience of many years in our company. In my free time of course I go cycling, or to the mountains, or I ride the Soča with my kayak. The Soča river is one of the most beautiful rivers I have ever paddled and this is the valley, where I am very glad to guide you!

    Founder, Contact manager
    hanks to my parents, I was sitting in a boat very early, mostly on flat waters of Hungary at first, and later on whitewaters of Austria as well. Later I was falling in love with the sea kayaking: a lot of water, huge distances, remote islands with all the beauty and danger of it. I went to South America spending half year there with Gyula, and I could see really high quality of whitewaters, and what does it mean, living close to the nature? From that time, there was no option to return to a big city and to my "old" life. We moved to Slovenia, to Bovec. I have a pharmacist degree, and I have thought I will cure the people with drugs, but I found something in Slovenia, what is able to cure in a better way. This is, what I would like to show you. I am always glad to go to the water, or to ride my bike roaming the countryside, or so happily put on my boots to go to the mountains of Julian Alps! This is my real world!
