Sunday rafting on the river Váh: Sokolovce – Hlohovec
Exploring nature from the water is an exceptional experience offered by a rafting on the old arm of river Váh in the neighbourhood of Hlohovec. It is suitable for families with children as well as for adrenaline lovers, you just need to choose a boat according to your preferences: inflatable or plastic canoe, raft or paddleboard.
The trip starts every Sunday at 09.30 in the parking lot in front of Zámocká záhrada (GPS: 48° 26′ 0″ N, 17° 48′ 12″ E). From there, the bus will take the rafting participants to the start of the cruise to Sokolovce (GPS: 48° 32′ 10″ N, 17° 50′ 42″ E). After the trip you will be driven back to the parking lot.
The rafting is preceded by the essential administration, which includes the distribution of inflatable canoes, rafts, and paddleboards, as well as excellent coaching. The rafting lasts approximately two hours, followed by a picnic or barbeque. Then it takes, approximately, the same amount of time (about two hours) to get to the finish line.
