Boating on the Krka River

The Krka River is the most characteristic Dolenjska river and the only Slovene river that deposits travertine in its bed. The Krka River Valley is a unique symbol of Dolenjska and is marked by the disappearing heritage of former flourmills and sawmills, preserved wooden bridges, numerous castles, and riverside settlements. The river is still quite clean and therefore gives shelter to numerous plant and animal species. Its karst springs with endemic underground animals are certainly very important, and the Krka is one of Slovenia’s richest fishing rivers.
Boating on this Dolenjska beauty is always a special experience. We suggest that you visit one of the companies offering organized boating, and we recommend rafting or kayaking on the upper section of the river from the village of Lese to Šmihel, which is the most attractive section of the river because of its numerous natural dams, or relaxed canoeing on the calmer lower section of the river.
The Krka is an indispensable natural element that gave Novo mesto its appearance. Its loop around Novo mesto, which offered protection for its first inhabitants in prehistoric times, today remains the recognized symbol of Novo mesto.
