THE SOCA RIVER IS IN THE RUNNING FOR THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RIVER IN THE WORLD, IT’S NICKNAME IS “THE EMERALD BEAUTY”
TOP FIVE ADVENTURES IN THE SOCA VALLEY FOR FAMILIES WITH LITTLE KIDS
1. WHITEWATER RAFTING TO SOCA RIVER
When it comes to family fun in Slovenia, the Soca valley has it all. Hiking, canyoning, whitewater rafting, kayaking, zip lining, adventure parks. We stayed 6 days in Slovenia and it was a month too short. We could have easily spent a whole month exploring this beautiful country. Our hearts were sad when we left but we promised we would be back.
The soca river is famous for its river runs. There are endless companies to choose from. Most start in Bovec. Bovec is a very toursit town but small and adorable. A lot of tour offices are located here. It would be a great place to stay to pack in adventure activities.
We choose to go with Sports mix Bovec. They were willing to do a special river run that would be appropriate for our kids ages: 3, 7, 10. All other companies we called wouldn’t take anyone under the age of 6.
The tour guide was funny and interactive with the kids. He also made them feel safe.
2. LAKE BLED
Lake bled is probably the most popular destination in Slovenia. For good reason, it is amazing! We stayed for 3 nights but would have been glad to stay longer. We wanted to explore Lake Bohinj but didn’t have enough time. We were so enamoured with the area we even stopped by a real estate office to inquire about vacation homes. Maybe one day we will own a home there! There are so many active things to do we were usually out all day and the exhausted happiness on returning to the house at the end of the day. Here are our favorites;
- Biking around lake bled
- Rowing to Bled island
- Vintgar gorge
- Staza mountain resort
- bled castle
- wandering the downtown
