The Soca valley is beautiful and very attractive for various reasons. Of course, nobody can overlook the river that ties it all together, but there is a lot to see and experience in the surrounding nature and in the many towns and villages on the riverbanks. Even many of the activities which make the valley a popular tourist attraction, are done around or above the river.
A great example would be canyoning. Bovec, Slovenia, is the perfect starting point for this activity, as it is situated in the heart of the Soca valley. The valley is criss-crossed with smaller streams that eventually join the river, but not before making attractive canyons that can be used for canyoning. Bovec, Slovenia, also has the advantage of hosting the tourist agencies that provide all-inclusive services for adventurers, so all the activities are as enjoyable as possible. That’s especially important with regards to canyoning – Bovec, Slovenia, is located on the banks of the Soca river, not right next to any canyon suitable for canyoning. The all-inclusive offer of the tourist agencies means you can expect a great experience nevertheless, as the transport and guidance are included!
While the most popular activities are still kayaking and rafting on Soca river, the surroundings offer many other thrilling activities. Or you can enjoy the unique perspective of the river – even while kayaking or rafting on Soca river, you can admire the picturesque surroundings and the mountains above the valley. If you want to get farther away from the river, your best bet is probably cycling or hiking the mountains, maybe even paragliding. This way, you’ll see people kayaking and rafting on Soca river only from afar, while enjoying your time and getting all the experience the valley offers.
