Kolpa, clean and warm river, not only offers summer swimming and lying on the banks of the picturesque green with swimming beaches, but also various sporting activities, such as boating, kayaking, canoeing, rafting, fishing, Standup paddle boarding, to name just a few. Along the stream of the river you can find a friendly tourist offer.
Rafting or canoeing (or travelling in any other water-born vessel for that matter) down the Kolpa river during the summer is just about one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a day anywhere in Slovenia. Whitewater rafting this is not, so adrenaline junkies may wish to look elsewhere, but for the rest of us a slow trip along the water allows ample time for appreciating the surrounding environment and stopping at various points to swim, visit attractions, have a picnic or explore. The upper sections of the river keep a slightly less meandering pace ant the water is a few degrees cooler than the 30°C or more it can reach further downstream. There are over 50 dams along the route that do provide a bit of excitement, but the key word on a Kolpa rafting trip is relaxation.
