Undeniably the best way to experience the Soča River is by traversing down its rapids. Not only is it great fun, you also get to marvel at the unspoilt natural world that surrounds you. Miles of breath-taking, ever-changing countryside line the banks of the Soča as it makes its way from the Alps to the coast. Its emerald pools, narrow ravines, scenic gorges, rocky passes, all hidden from civilisation, promise an incredibly relaxing feeling of solitude, while certain sections of the river give you a fantastic adrenaline rush.
The brilliant thing about white water rafting on the Soča is that practically anyone can take part. The river boats different difficulty levels of rafting, presenting beginners and experts with ample opportunities to enjoy the thrills it offers. It goes without saying that being a relatively good swimmer is advisable and wearing a wetsuit is a must. Fortunately, there are many local agencies that provide you with transfer, a professional rafting guide and the top-grade rafting gear, so there’s no excuse why taking on the stunning Soča should not be on your Slovenian bucket list.
