Gyula Csaszar began their career in the whitewater industry nearly fifteen years ago on the rivers of Europe and South America. After working as professional safety kayaker and raft guide for many years in Chile and Slovenia, and managing for other rafting companies, with Petra Vasadi they opened their own company in 2010 in the beautiful Soca valley in Slovenia. Our staff specializes in personalized service and unforgettable, safe, outdoor experiences. From your first contact to your last good-bye, our goal is to help you relax and enjoy! Soca Rider is still one of the smallest company in the valley and don't want to become a "rafting industry". That is how we can keep a nice, familier atmosphere in our rafting and kayaking trips, and fulfill your personal wishes.

We are dedicated to provide quality service to all of our whitewater programs. Keeping our knowledge up to date, you spend safe and quality time with rafting, or whitewater kayaking on the Soca river.

Gyula Császár

Founder and 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!

Petra Vasadi

Founder and contact person

Thanks 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!

Reviews of our whitewater programs

  • We went out a few times with Soca Rider and couldn't have had a more wonderful experience. They're family run, which really shows in their care and personal interest in everyone having a positive experience, rather than being on a standard tour with a larger company. They were also very tailored to what we wanted to do. I was quite nervous but the attention and care really helped me. Really hoping to return and I've been recommending them to friends and colleagues on our return to England. A big thank you to Petra and Gyula. We hope to see you both again.
  • We were a family of 5 with mixed kids ages ranging from 7 to 17. We decided to take Soca Rider family rafting and enjoyed every minute of it. The reservation was super easy and friendly and the email communication was fast. we told Soca Rider we need to catch the car train back and they recommended on the best timing to take the rafting. Finding the place in Bovec was easy and the prep was smooth. Everything were best organized - the transportation to the rafting, the super friendly guides, the equipment was in top shape and the rafting itself include both rafting time and water games. Overall, highly recommended!!
