The rivers Soča and Sava are ideal for the adrenaline-boosting sport of riverboarding, also known as hydrospeed. Hydrospeed allows you a direct contact with the water because all there is between you and the river is a small 'river bob' (a kind of float) which you lie on with your upper body and grip firmly with your hands. Flippers on your feet help you negotiate the rapids and additional protective gear protects you from bumps and scrapes. Tourism agencies and centres offering hydrospeed provide all the necessary equipment and a guide to ensure even greater safety. They will also provide transport back to the starting point.
