white water rafting bled
A fun 9-kilometer white water rafting Bled trip down the Sava Dolinka River will take you through stunning scenery over fun rapids graded at level II and level II+. This adventure through lush and scenic outdoors is a wonderful experience for anybody who seeks to explore the beautiful Sava Dolinka river banks which offer a different perspective of Bled. In spring and early summer especially, the water level is usually higher because of the melting snow in the mountains – thus the river is faster and more exciting. On the other hand, during the summer, the water levels are lower but the river stays cool throughout – making this trip a perfect run away from the Bled summer heat. Lastly, Sava Dolinka white water rafting is suitable for almost all ages, for solo travelers, couples, families, and groups. Join us on the best rafting adventure Bled has to offer!
