Ultimate canyoning tour
Our meeting point is at our office in Bled. Together we will take a ride to Kobarid. To get there we will drive for about 50 minutes since we will drive through Italy and back again across the Slovenian border to Bovec and Kobarid. We will park near the Kozjak waterfall. Then we get dressed in equipment for the canyoning Bovec tour. That includes a neoprene suit, neoprene socks, special impermeable boots, a helmet, and a safety harness.
First, we take a walk to the canyon Kozjak
From the waterfall, where we parked the van, we will start a hike towards the canyon, where the tour River begins. An easily accessible hiking trail takes about 45 minutes. On the pathway, we will cross wooden hanging bridges, linking forest paths above emerald queen of Slovenian waters, the Soča River. When reaching an entry to the canyon, the guide will present and explain all the details about safety, how to rappel narrow walls and the correct use of the rope and other equipment.
Let the Ultimate canyoning begin
The first jump is 10 meters high, followed by other jumps that are up to 13 meters high. Throughout the tour, you will have many opportunities for fun sliding along natural slides and for alpine rappels.
The canyoning Bovec tour ends in the last pool, which is filled with water, pouring down from the Kozjak waterfall. The waterfall offers the highest jump, that is about 18 meters high. If you decide to jump, you will rappel down the narrow shelf to reach the spot from where you will jump into the pool with a famous waterfall that thousands of people visit each year. Don’t get distracted by the crowd of people who will watch your brave jump.
At the waterfall, we will take a group picture that will bring you a beautiful memory of this unique experience. Then we will walk towards the wooden bridge under which the Soča River flows, with its distinguishing emerald green color. From this bridge, you can jump into the river for the last time. Then we will walk to the parking lot where you will change your clothes. From here we will take a drive back to Bled.
The entire tour takes about 7 hours, including transport from Bled to Kobarid, dressing, hiking to the entry point, instructions and safety measures, and, last but not least, the whole experience of jumping into pools and sliding on natural water tunnels.
The whole tour takes about 1.5 – 3 to three hours. Time spent in the canyon depends on the number of participants and whether some of them are more experienced or beginners.

Why is canyoning Kozjak so special?
The wild alpine brook has its source in the foothills of the Julian Alps, over 2000 meters above sea level. In its short but steep flow to the Soča River Valley, the stream is overflowing and booming in a spectacular and mysterious canyon. Here, the stream has created narrow gorges and deep caverns.
The picturesque walls, river beds, waterfalls, and crystal-clear green water pools represent the main feature of the canyoning Bovec tour. Wild and unspoiled nature formations will lead you through four waterfalls in the upper part of the canyon. In the end, you can expect a 20-meter-high waterfall that drops into a deep pool. Canyoning Bovec tour in the Kozjak canyon, bordering on the Triglav National Park, offers thrilling jumps into the pools. This canyon differs from the other gorges and canyons by offering the highest and most spectacular jumps.
Canyoning Kozjak tour offers three main activities, including jumping into the water pools, rappelling down narrow walls and sliding on natural water tunnels. Waterfalls will accompany your jumps, as you will jump through them into crystal clear and deep-water pools. The Soča river is a very clean river and one of the cleanest in Europe, it is not without reason marketed as The Emerald Beauty. It was called that because of the really clear green water and white stones in it, which look like pearls through the waves when the sun shines on them. It is truly a great and unforgettable view. You will never forget that beauty and for sure you will love to come back several times.
