* Enjoy breathtaking views of the Julian Alps and the troughs of the Soca River.

* See the highest waterfall in Slovenia, the Boka.

* Explore the remains of caverns and fire trenches from World War I.


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.

What people are saying about -Dean


Dean was very attentive to all. Easy to talk to and informative



Dean was simply wonderful ! Sure footed and quick to notice when we needed a break. Conversation was easy and he was very pleasant and professional. We had a fantastic time and would absolutely hike with Dean again. What an enjoyable experience!!!



We were looking for a hike suitable for 4 adults with reasonable experience in hiking.Dean not only crafted a 5 day activity for us but was also able to adjust for routes to fit our needs during the hike itself. Dean proved to be a great guide with both knowledge and an amazing attitude and was simply so much fun to be with, Dean also went 'the extra mile' for us taking some of us to special activities which we did not plan for. If you are looking for hiking in Slovenia and getting an experience of a life time - I would highly recommend Dean. 5 starts all the way (And if there 6 he would get them as well :) ) Dean, thank you so much !



Dean is a super experienced guide, he is very qualified to do all sorts of mountineering too if you are interested to try. I had a good time learning how to do snow shoeing and he is very patient in teaching me and assessing my abilities to suggest different routes which is suitable for my build and stamina. It was great and safe to have him as a guide because he knows the terrain well and that is good to know.



Dean was an excellent tour guide! He was patient and a great teacher, whilst also being very knowledgeable about safety. Highly recommend!
