Description of photo trip to the Emerald River Soča

The superb thing about Ljubljana is that it’s in close proximity to virtually the entire country. We’ll take advantage of Slovenia’s geographical smallness and escape the city to snap a few stunning panoramic pics of the Julian Alps at the Vršič mountain pass. Picture perfect views will continue in all their glory as we make our way down to the fabulous expanses of the Trenta Valley. Unbelievable photo ops on every step.

Our journey will then take us deep into another stunning valley that time forgot. Winding through the mountains and hills, you’ll witness the magic that is the Soča River, appropriately dubbed the Emerald Queen. Nature is a masterful architect, and this part of Slovenia is truly the epitome of its work. A multitude of colours, contrasts and majestic backdrops present exceptional opportunities for some exquisite photography.

Following the river to the sublimely beautiful wilderness of Lepena Valley and the gorgeous Soča Gorge, you’ll get to witness the various shapes and formations of this incredible phenomenon up close and personal, trying out a list of landscape photo techniques. For the cherry on top, we gradually arrive at the Boka Waterfall at the sports hub of Bovec and let you click away till your heart’s content.

To end our adventure in absolute style, we’ll venture down to Goriška Brda, also known as Slovenian Tuscany. We’ll marvel at the memorizing surroundings from an idyllic lookout point where we’ll enjoy a tasty dinner and re-evaluate our photographic achievements of the day before returning to Ljubljana in the late hours of the eve.

I took both photo trips in Slovenia (Alpine jewels and Emerald river). Vani is a really cool guy, excellent driver, and amazing photographer. He's a really relaxed and funny person and I'm very glad I met him. Thanks to him, Slovenia is my new favourite European country!

Vani drove me to the photography trip, we picked up some hitchhikers on the way (!) and had a fantastic time. Hands down, one of the best days I had while in Slovenia! He is a friendly guy and there is plenty to talk and laugh about if you share a drink with him.
