Bovec, a small town at the threshold of Triglav National Park, surrounded by the high peaks of the Julian Alps, the centre of outdoor activities, is particularly inviting with a colourful array of sports adventures.

Soča Valley – the world of active experiences, history and top gastronomy

The Soča Valley, which links the towns of Bovec, Kobarid and Tolmin, offers visitors a rich blend of active, cultural and historical experiences in a stunning natural setting. The valley’s main attraction is the emerald-green Soča, one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe.

Soča Valley is not only for nature lovers: it is famous across Slovenia and beyond as an important centre for outdoor activities. The valley offers countless opportunities for sports and recreation: water sports (kayaking, rafting, canyoning), fishing, hiking, cycling, zip-line, parachuting and paragliding, flying, climbing; and in winter, family skiing, cross-country skiing, tobogganing and snow-shoeing.

Visitors can combine active adventures with discovering the cultural heritage that still lives in the Alpine pastures, on old farms, in traditional events and in the local gastronomy.

If you need a place to stay, see the Julian Alps Accommodation Searcher. Direct bookings are one of the best ways to help the local community grow while paying the same or even less than via big booking platforms. Also, make sure this area stays amazing and use all the responsible travel options offered by local providers. Every action matters. And we need to step up the responsible living paradigm on every possible level if we want to protect our future.
