Rafting on Korana river
Literally get to know Rastoke and the famous waterfalls! Rafting on the Korana River takes this most beautiful route, through the very heart of the Rastoke, a waterfall village. If you are a fan of adrenaline, this challenge is right for you. Rafting, however, is only possible during autumn, winter and early spring, as it largely depends on the water level of the river, which must be quite high. If you are interested, feel free to send us an inquiry in order to check the water level and the possibility of organizing this trip.
We are rafting in inflatable GUMOTEX rafts that can fit 4 - 7 persons, through many rapids and sedge barriers, where you will feel a rush of the adrenaline and excitement of this sport. The guide is with you in your raft, coordinating and steering. Beside the rafts and paddle we will provide you with professional gear: Helmet, life jacket, neopren suits, neopren shoes, anorak jackets (in cold days) and a waterproof barrel which you can use for your snacks, drinks and other non valuable belongings.
