Why join us?
You may have already guessed that we have a soft spot for Slovenia here at Sweet Skills, just take a look through our photos and you’ll see why. Running through Triglavski National Park, the Soca is truly a world class river. Feeling lower volume in the upper sections, the river then builds momentum as it progresses downstream. If you’re looking to improve your skills on grade 2+/3+ with a few easy 4s thrown in, this could be the trip for you.
What can we expect?
6 days of boating on the Soca and Koritnica
Fluid and dynamic leadership
1:6 is our maximum ratio
Appropriate progression through the grades
A mix of coaching and guiding to suit the group
Demo boats from Silverbirch Canoes
Photos and video footage
Where do we stay?
Camp Lazar is quite simply one of the best campsites in the Alps. Tucked away near the end of the Otona section on the banks of the Soca, Edi and the team create a unique and relaxed atmosphere. If camping isn’t your thing there is also a 4 person self catering apartment and 5 room holiday home. Click here to take a look through their website for more information.
