Clear your mind and soul admiring the pristine and beautiful natural wonders of the Soča Valley. Flowing through it is the Soča River known for its clear greenish blue color, and for the plethora of extreme water sports that could give a head rush to any adrenaline junkie.
The Soča river valley is an enchantingly scenic part of Slovenia and even though it is located on the other side of the Julian Alps it can be easily reached in a day trip from Ljubljana. The Soča river has one of the most amazing colors you will ever see and you can follow its lively rapids from the source to the spectacular carved gorges, all the way down to where it slows down and becomes deeper and more secretive.
On the way to Soča Valley we will stop in a small ski resort town named Kranjska Gora, where we stop to admire the Julian Alps and the picturesque Jasna lake.
We will drive through Vršič, the highest mountain pass in Slovenia at 1611 m. The monumental road that leads up to this pass was built during World War I. On the way up you pass the Russian Chapel, a wooden church hidden in the woods, which commemorates the Russian prisoners of war, who perished whilst building this road.
And if you want to experience some adrenaline, you also won't be disappointed. As we reach the Soča river valley, the road levels out and we follow the river to Bovec, the adrenaline capital of Slovenia and the right place for water sports. You can go rafting, kayaking, canyoning, cycling and even fly-fishing.
Another interesting stop on this tour is Kobarid, where you will visit a WWI museum and if there is time, Kozjak waterfall. Kozjak waterfall is considered to be one of the most striking waterfalls in Slovenia. The water carved a hall that surrounds the waterfall, giving you a feeling of being underground, and the 15-meter beauty plummets into a turquoise pool that continues its way out in a little stream.
