While the Soca valley is well known and very popular among the tourists, most of them flock to the same popular places and barely explore any of the surroundings. Of course, the larger towns are the focal point of the offer here, and are worth visiting. That’s true for the activities that include some preparation and organization. That’s why the best place is for kayaking, canyoning, and rafting Bovec. Soca offers great spots for all kinds of activities, but Bovec covers most of the interesting parts. The best experiences are definitely to be found with rafting Bovec. Soca flows past Kobarid and Tolmin as well, both are just as popular with the tourists in the summer months. But in-between, there are other attractive spots to explore, be it in form of an organized tour or a solo adventure.
It’s one thing if you’re into organized trips, such as kayaking or rafting – Bovec, Soca and other factors are decisive in this case. But there are so many other adventures that can be experienced on or around the river Soca, canyoning for example. Canyoning is not limited to the river itself, it offers far better experiences in the narrow canyons of the tributaries – great opportunity to explore the nature around the river. That’s why Soca canyoning is popular among those willing to go their own way, avoid the crowds and find a great adventure. Maybe even on their own – exploring the nature can be done on a hiking trip or with a bicycle, just don’t push your luck. In the wild surroundings of Soca, canyoning can be dangerous, so it’s recommended to choose guided tours for proper canyon exploration. This doesn’t mean you can’t find a hidden waterfall or admire a narrow canyon on your own!
