About Soča Valley

The Soča Valley region (Posočje) is undoubtedly among the most scenic places in Slovenia.

It stretches from Triglav National Park in the northeast and all the way down to Nova Gorica in the south-eastern part of the country. This stunning place is home to an amazing number of natural phenomena, the queen of which is the emerald jewel called the Soča River. Bovec, the region’s main sports hub, is the place to go to enjoy the delights this river and its surroundings provide.

Visitors mainly flock to the Soča River for kayaking and rafting, but hiking is also a definite must. A 25 km trail runs from the Soča River spring to Bovec (or vice versa) and is considered an excursion of intermediate difficulty. It’s part of the Alpe Adria trail, an awesome three–country (Austria, Slovenia Italy) hike. Apart from the trail’s several gorges, its main attractions are the footbridges over the Soča.

There are also numerous extremely wonderful fishing spots along the Soča and on its tributaries. In addition to its beauty and versatility, the valley holds the incredible yet bone-chilling heritage of World War I. The Soča Valley was the biggest WWI mountainous front in these parts and millions of soldiers fought in this formidable terrain. The town of Kobarid has a lovely museum dedicated to the historic events of this area that should certainly be placed on your itinerary.
