An authentic logging ride down the Drava

An authentic logging ride down the Drava

Try your hand as a logging rafter and take an amazing trip down the Drava River!

A green experience on the raft

Learn all about the history of log rafting and the timber industry, then ride a log raft down the Drava, just like they did in the old days!

But since this profession has never been easy, you’ll be put to work as well! Not only will you have to whip up a rafter’s meal and cook coffee over an open flame, but you’ll also have to learn to row with a proper rafter’s oar. Are you ready? 

Try a different experience in Maribor and enjoy the Drava River to the fullest.

The trip starts at Koblar’s Bay and goes down to Lent, which used to serve as a dock for rafts and chaikas (a type of small galley or covered raft). 

Let the waters fill you with their healing energy and may the breathtaking surroundings make your day exquisite!

This experience includes the following:

  • Welcome at the Rafters’ Dock House (Koblar’s Bay) and an amuse bouche of bread and salt, served with an aperitif
  • An authentic logging ride down the Drava
  • A lesson on the history of logging and a demonstration of the logger’s baptism
  • Making lunch around an open fire
  • Beverages
  • Logger’s coffee

The trip, guided by two rafters, lasts an hour and a half.

This experience meets the criteria of sustainable tourism; locally sourced, zero waste, recyclable packaging.
