Five different activities are included, on the river we'll enjoy whitewater rafting, canyoning and kayaking, and on land we'll try mountain biking and one of Europe’s largest and most thrilling zip-lines, high above the valley floor.

Start Kobarid.

Day 2 
Whitewater Rafting

This morning we head on to the river for rafting in 8-man vessels. Basic instruction is given at the beginning of the trip on how to steer and propel the craft. Paddling is compulsory, as the raft must be moving in the water for the guide to be able to steer a course through the rapids. The first part of the course is mild and there is a stop on the riverbank and a chance for a swim. The second part then gets a little rougher and the rafting really starts. The run is usually 10 kilometres. After lunch there is an optional hike in the countryside around the village. However you may chose to stay behind and relax.

Day 3 
Half day of canyoning; optional afternoon activities

Today we aim for a half-day of Canyoning. The Susec canyon is the usual destination, and after donning the appropriate clothing (wetsuits and helmets), we hike up to the entry point. The first few drops are gentle and instruction is given as to how to descend. On one of the larger falls you will be lowered down with a rope. If the water level is too high in the canyons, or the forecast unpredictable, we will enjoy a further day of activities back on the river, with the group free to choose what they part take in.

Day 4 

Today we have an exciting day on the river in out specially designed kayakaks - Whitewater kayaks are shorter, lighter and manoeuvrable. You will be equipped with a helmet, spraydeck (skirt) and life jacket. Competent kayakers perform rolls to turn themselves upright after capsizing: those who can't roll can release themselves from the kayak and swim ashore, or wait to be assisted upright by the instructor. The first session will take place in a pool or in calm waters, here you will learn to release yourself and learn the basics of the roll. You will also be taught the basic paddle stroke. There will be one instructor for every 8 kayakers and instruction will be given for 2 hours in the morning with a further 2 hours in the afternoon after a well-deserved lunch break.

Day 5 
Free time

Free day for optional activities including horseriding & zorbing or try tandem paragliding. The early evening is often the best time for paragliding, and conditions allowing, we can arrange for a flight. There should also be more time for flying after the activities on later days, or on the morning of departure. Kobarid is also home to an award winning WWI museum. It tells the soldiers stories from the trenches and also has some exhibits of Ernest Hemingway who served in the area at the time and whose novel 'A Farwell to Arms' is based on his experiences in this region. In the evening you can choose to eat in one of the local restaurants. The Hisa Franko is a delightful family run restaurant serving award wining food within a picturesque setting.

Day 6 
Mountain biking

Off the water today and onto two wheels, for a four mountain bike ride through the Slovenia countryside. Depending on the groups ability we will take routes either long the Soca or Nadiza River, along bumpy tracks and through dense pine forest.

Day 7 
Morning at Zipline Slovenia

This morning we take a 30 minute transfer to Zipline Slovenia, one of Europe's largest, longest and highest zip-line parks. We fly down five wires in total, up to 700 metres in length, reaching speeds of 60km/h. The views of the Julian Alps, Isonzo River and Bovec Valley are simply breath-taking. After all that excitement we return to Kobarid, for a more gentile afternoon.
