Slovenia is not the most popular tourist destination in the world, but it’s certainly prominent enough to warrant some extra attention. It’s especially well known among the crowd of adventurers, as it offers great options for adrenaline sports and other extreme activities. The go-to place for that is the town of Bovec, which is conveniently located on the banks of the Soča River.
This makes it the ideal starting point for all kinds of adventures, mostly for anything to do with the river itself, for example hydrospeed, kayaking and rafting. Soča is definitely the main attraction that beckons the visitors, but not the only one – Bovec is well developed and has a varied offer even without the charms of the river. Anyway, rafting Soča can definitely be the only reason to visit the town, or you can incorporate the activity into the plans of a longer stay. In any case, it’s a good idea to try rafting – Soča offers some great views and the activity itself is exhilarating!
There is another activity that offers a similar combination of fun and exploration, that’s canyoning. Bovec, Slovenia, is the perfect place to be if you’re into exploring the undisturbed nature on foot, navigating your way through the narrow canyons. The experience can be really unique, that’s why we can only recommend canyoning. Bovec, Slovenia, offers several possibilities when it comes to this activity. The Soča River itself is not best suited for canyoning, although it has amazing canyons to see. But there are better canyons, this means narrower, deeper and with shallower water, that are ideal for canyoning – Bovec, Slovenia, is conveniently placed among the springs and streams that carve their own canyons into the hills, so it’s not hard to find the best option for natural obstacle courses.
