What is hydrospeed?

Hydrospeed or “riverboogie” is clearly one of the most exciting whitewater sports. Participants wear thick neoprene clothing and flippers, and we “swim” on a hydrospeed (whitewater swimming board) down the river.

    One of them is always going in the front showing the safest line what you must take, they will help you to find your way back to it if you would miss it or you get in trouble. The whole team must follow each other in a line. For safety reasons you must pay attention and follow your guides instructions.

Classic tour

This tour usually takes places at Srpenica I to Trnovo. Beginners are welcome, as this tour starts with a very easy part which provides an opportunity to learn the necessary techniques for hydrospeed.

Before we head to more difficult sections, you have the opportunity to finish the tour with the easier parts. In case you are up to more challenges, you can use your newly acquired skills, and try the difficult parts.

Extreme tour

This takes place between Otona and Kobarid. Tour is recomended after you have done the classic hydrospeed tour and are still longing for more adventure. After a warm up, we start the tour with one of the most challenging rapids.

This tour requires concentration and endurance, but the experience is everlasting. At the end and we swim threw the breathtaking canyon under the Napoleon bridge.
