Description

The iconic Soca River flows the entire length of the Soca Valley in Slovenia. This Alpine river is 137 kilometers long and is home to a perplexing Karst spring, located at the foot of the Julian Alps in Trenta.

The Soca River, which is characterized by its distinct emerald green color, is without a doubt one of the most precious natural gems in the Triglav National Park. It also happens to be one of the most stunning rivers in all of Europe.

Would you like to experience the overwhelming power of the Soca River, which carved out the famous Big Troughs (Velika korita Soče) over millions of years and admire the unspoiled nature of the Bovec Basin (Bovška kotlina)?

There are many hiking trails throughout the Soca River Valley with spectacular “open-air museums” that contain remains of caverns, fire trenches and even memorials from the Isonzo Front of World War I.

Would you like to see the Tolmin Troughs (Tolminska korita), the expansive Lipuc Bridge, a hanging bridge which spans 63 meters over the Soca River, and the 106 meter high Boka waterfall Boka (Slovenia’s highest)?

If you answered “yes!” to these questions, join us in the Soca River Valley. I’d be pleased to be your guide.
