Description

A super enjoyable ‘sit-on-top’ kayaking adventure. This calm and soothing paddling excursion takes you from the lovely Ljubljana Marshes straight to the capital’s centre. An easy kayaking tour suitable for anyone who likes to combine the tranquillity of nature, sightseeing and the excitement of this great water sport.   

It’s hard to imagine such a pristine natural environment could be found right on the doorstep of a modern European capital. Well, it can. Not far from where the city limits end, the incredibly green and peaceful Ljubljana Marshes and your kayaking journey begin. We will organize a ride to the starting location from the city centre to where you will later arrive by kayak. The marshes are a swampy wetland, home to an impressive amount of wildlife and the birthplace of civilization in the Ljubljana Basin. Pillar-dwellers used to live here thousands of years ago and the oldest wooden wheel in the world was found here,

You will set off down the Ižica River and paddle towards the Ljubljanica, Ljubljana’s proud and joy. This route is nice and easy, so you’ll have plenty of time to admire the extremely diverse natural surroundings while practicing your kayaking skills. Arriving at the Ljubljanica River, you can encounter an array of various bird species and the cute beaver-like river mammal called coypu or nutria. The route gradually gets an urban feel as you enter the centre of Ljubljana and come to a halt at the concrete embankment appropriately called Špica or ‘point’.

Perfect as a refreshing outdoor activity during warmer months, this kayaking trip is a great way to get a different perspective of the Ljubljana Marshes and the capital’s laid-back riverside. Grab your oars and let’s go!

We learned how to properly row and how to leave your kayak in case you flip over. We also learned how to read rivers, about the currents, where counterflow runs and how to hide in "eddy". Very informative, not only fun. Recommend
