River info :
A river pass is required to navigate the local rivers. River passes can be purchased onsite at Camp Liza or at the Bovec Tourist Office. Price is 3EUR/day or 16EUR/week or 30EUR/season.
Most of the nearby runs are Grade 1/2/ 3 with the occasional 4.
The Grade runs are typically bouldery and narrow and require the ability to assess and navigate hazards such as strainers and sieves. There will be some wood in the river.
Current river flow for the Soca can be found here:
For the different sections and grade please refer to the map below.
