Timber raft cruises on the Sava river

Join Radece rafters on a journey, learn about their interesting tradition and customs.                                                        Timber rafting cruise program

Lively river traffic always took place on the Sava river and Radece was the main port on this route.

Therefore, the town’s history has always been closely linked to timber rafting and for 500 years the activity provided many locals the opportunity to lead decent lives. And even though the profession itself was demanding, it was a highly respected one.

On their “flos” (raft) the rafters transported mainly wood. Since they sailed down the rivers Savinja, Sava and Danube all the way to Belgrade and even further to the Black Sea, their work was of course dangerous. With the arrival of railway rafting slowly started to die out, but despite that the rafters’ tradition, habits and customs left an indelible mark in the region.

You are warmly invited to join us in the period from April to October. We will take you on a two-hour timber raft experience on the Sava river. Stories, local music and dances will reveal what harsh lives the raftsmen led and which merry habits they had. By taking part in an authentic rafters’ christening you will witness how amusing it was to recruit rookies in the ranks of experienced rafters.

The program of your adventure can be adapted to your wishes, and we will gladly show you our other beautiful sights, too.
