White Water Rafting down the River Sava at Lake Bled with Life Adventures!

White Water Rafting down the River Sava at Lake Bled with Life Adventures!

I’d imagine that every travel write in history has written about the sheer staggering beauty of Lake Bled… so I’ll perhaps not reinvent the wheel and just offer this advice….

Arrive in light as the roads in and out (especially from Bohina are tight in a motorhome), make sure you book in advance (we were fine out of season with an almost empty site, but thats not the same in high season) & allow at least 3-4 days!!! Minimum!!!

We’ve got 48hrs so we thought we’d make the most of what we can now, and return later in our year around Europe (perhaps on the way down to Dubrovnik, those who’ve read our enthusiastic posts on Dubrovnik will know why…)

Lake Bled

Thankfully, we chanced upon a company that shares the same passions as we do – creating adventures of a lifetime(Life Adventures, Lake Bled) – so we jumped on board! Literally on board, a white water rafting boat!
Life Adventures offer so many of the types of activities our girls loved, so it was a hard choice, but the chance to experience some decent Grade 3 rapids in April (with the snow melt from the mountains making it even better) was too good to miss…

Sometimes its the experience, sometimes its who you do it with, and again we struck gold!!! Doren was awesome! (not just good but far beyond) – a real character who was great to chat with afterwards!! Nothing was too much trouble! Perfect for the girls who were filled with excitement and enthusiasm!!

The rapids were the perfect mix of some decent high octane rapids yet we never felt out of control or concerned… a perfect start for the girls who will hopefully go on and try a Grade 6 (perhaps the Zambezi!)

The River Sava is no small river, travelling 944km it connects 4 countries and 8 million people! Its a whopper! But it is easily reached from Bled and well worth the journey! The river passes along a fantastic set of rapids over the 9km stretch we used but the water life, scenery is something else!! Constantly changing and worth the admission price alone!

Would we do it again, you betcha! In fact, we’d love to use the company again, perhaps next time we’ll try canyoning or maybe let the girls loose on a family day of climbing…. See you next time Life Adventures!! We’ll catch up soon!
