  • This is undoubtedly the hidden jewel of Slovenia. Of all the twists and turns that you negotiate for reaching Bovec or for an overnight stay in camps like Korint, are worth the trouble that you have taken. If you have come all the way to Slovenia, it would be sad, if you can no take it to Soca.
  • The very best part of this aerea.. Relaxing and beautiful Julian Alps, Magnificent river Soča with its incredible colors, very nice and helpful people.
  • A beautiful river, very clear water. Also a great place for canoeing and rafting
  • River Soča is the most beautiful river you'll ever see!! 😀 Cristal turqoise water and many small waterfalls.
  • We had a picnic lunch from the boot of our car on the pebble banks of the Soca River on our way to beautiful Bled. A lasting memory of clear clean turquoise water.
