About Us

Welcome to Adventure Rafting Bled (ARB). We are a local, family run business in Bled, Slovenia since 2006.

Robert Stan, the owner and founder of ARB, started rafting in Bled area as early as in the beginning of the nineties. In the pioneer era of adventure sport in Bled he was one of the founders of Bled Rafting, the company that started organizing rafting trips in Bled in 1991. In 2006 he started his own company called Adventure Rafting Bled. Since then he has been successfully leading ARB with the help of his sons, wife and group of trusted guides.

Our team, combined with years of experience in Bled tourism and internationally experienced guides, strive to offer only the best experiences to those who choose to explore our beautiful country with us. Our goal is not just to offer the best service regarding the activity but also to present Slovenia as a country, its beauty and richness.

Our main service is rafting trips, but in the cooperation with other local outdoor specialists we have enriched our offers with an array of outdoor experiences.

We are proud and happy to live in a country as beautiful as Slovenia and eager to get you involved in our story!
