Kayaking in Bled will make you smile! Find your flow down the Sava River and become the master of the rapids! A 5-kilometer kayaking adventure on the Sava River might not make you a pro, but you will learn the basics while enjoying the beautiful nature around you. Sit-on-top kayaking on the Sava River is perfect for beginners, first-timers, and intermediates. If you have some experience with still water, this adventure on the Sava River is the perfect transition to flowing water. We will teach you how to use the kayak and the paddle, how to turn, how to choose your way down the river, and how to catch eddies.
