Whitewater Packrafting Trainings Soča (Slovenia)

Whitewater Packrafting in the Valley of Soča and Koritnica

The valleys of Soča and Koritnica are offering whitewater action in stunning scenery. During these three or five days of combined hiking and whitewater adventure, you will be doing day trips with light luggage and a packraft. In the river canyons of Soča and Koritnica, you will learn riding techniques, have a lot of fun and experience the freedom of whitewater paddling on packrafts.

You will learn and develop individually and extensively how to ride on easy to challenging whitewater of level III/IV. During the day trips, you will learn whitewater security, special packrafting techniques in the river and on gravel banks at the waterside.

The open training is for packrafters with little previous experience. Our advanced trainings are rather for experienced paddlers, who want to deepen their skills. With our experienced guides who will lead the trainings alone or in pairs depending on the booking situation, we can be flexible enough to meet the different levels of knowledge within the group.

Of course, you can rent the complete packrafting equipment, as well as the whitewater safety gear from us. Additionally, you can also take the chance and try out different equipment of our fleet.

Each evening we are back at our base camp, the campsite with bonfire pit, where we end the day comfortably around the campfire, sometimes with stories and anecdotes (here's the blog) from the LWA team as well as our plans for future adventures.

Do you want to learn even more about the course? Then check out our blog. Here, various blog posts offer an insight into the courses of the past years and behind the scenes.

Join us on the original whitewater packrafting trip to the valley of Soča. We are packrafting enthusiasts and are living for packrafting, the whole season through, from Slovenia to Iceland. We take this passion to every trip and training we do.
