Reviews of Soca Rider

Soca Rider won the Certificate of Excellence in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Impressive experience on our first time rafting and canyoning activity! We are really enjoyed the whitewater rafting tour and canyoning activities with the Socarider team. This was the first time for us and we got really helpful and professional services and support from the team. They are really experienced about these extreme sports. Besides the really professional attitude it was a big fun so we can offer to anybody to try it.
Excellent organisation, great team! We had a team building event for 14 people, rafting and canyoning. Everything was perfectly organized, very nice, friendly, open people. Great weather, fantastic environment. We all enjoyed it very much. Two of my colleges enjoyed it so much, that they took their families for rafting.
Fantastic whitewater Rafting & Canyoning tour package with the Soca Rider team! Where to start .... great value for money; really friendly and knowledgeable staff who made you feel completely safe throughout; breathtaking scenery for a 'natural waterpark' (a commercial waterpark could never compete with this experience!) ..... 2 AWESOME days. Thank you Casi and team, unforgettable experience

  • Csaszi

    Founder, 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, Contact manager
    hanks 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!
