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.

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!

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!
