FROM THE ALPS TO THE ADRIATIC COAST

Join us on this day trip to Karst and the Slovenian coast. Discover the beauty of the medieval town of Piran, Lipica Stud Farm and UNESCO pearl of Škocjan caves.

Our first stop on the way to the seaside is gonna be the Škocjan cave. A UNESCO world heritage site with the largest underground canyons in the world. Walking through these caves is truly spectacular, with breathtaking caverns and rushing underground river. Guided tour takes around 2 hours and tickets must be bought in advance on their on-line platform.

Our second stop is Lipica Stud Farm which is the cradle of the Lipizzaners – the noble white horses. Breeding began 400 years ago to meet the exclusive needs and demands of the Habsburgs. You will see the whole array of magnificent animals and amazing figures of the Spanish Riding School. The excellence of the Lipizzaners can be admired at their show.

After the visit in Lipica we drive to the coast. The most attractive town is Piran – our favourite place with its Venetian-gothic architecture. Famous for the salt production on the nearby still existing salt-pans, where Slovenia gets the majority of salt even today. Our stops: central square where the birth house of the maestro Tartini is. Church of St. George with its Venetian-like bell tower to admire the view over the wonderful mosaic of roofs, streets, and squares with the stunning backdrop of the bay. You’ll have time for coffee, lunch or a walk.

If returning to the Soča valley we will drive back passing the town of Trieste.

Departure points: Bovec, Kobarid, Tolmin, Bled. Other towns on request.

Best time to travel: All year around (July, August are crowded)

Duration of the trip: whole day (up to 8h or more)

We did the Soca valley day tour from Goriška brda and we enjoyed the tour very much. Seen a lot of the Julian Alps, the fortress of Kluze, Soca river with the big gorge and beautiful waterfalls of Virje and Boka. If you are in the region I recommend the day tour to Soca valley a lot!

My girlfriend and I took a guided tour of the Julian Alps, we were in Bled, but they came to pick us up and we did this beautiful tour. We saw amazing waterfalls, large lakes, some incredible mountain scenery and finally the amazing Soca River with its gorge. This incredible nature is worth seeing.

The agency organised our outdoor vacation in Soça valley. They organised the transfer from Venice airport to Bovec and back. We also went on a rafting tour, did a biking tour around Soça valley and went ziplining. Perfect holidays and great organisation!

We took a private tour through the Soča Valley and it was a great experience. We marveled at many waterfalls and the Soča River. Thank you for the great time and the great explanations of everything. We will be back!

We visited the valley with the family and we took the guided tour of Bovec and Kobarid. We were amazed by the beautiful river Soca and all the waterfalls like Kozjak, Boka and Virje. You need to visit Soca valley when in Slovenia!

Had a wonderful hike with Mateja. She’s smart, thoughtful, delightfully chatty, knowledgeable, athletic and fun to be around.

We could not have been happier with our tour with Mateja! We only had one day in the Soča valley and she planned a tour to make sure we saw as much as possible. We had lunch in a charming town, went to a natural wine shop, and had the most magical day exploring. We learned so much from Mateja, and she went above and beyond by sharing photos and tips for the rest of our trip after the tour as well. We wish we had more time here and would recommend Discover Soča to anyone looking for the best experience with a local guide. THANK YOU!

Thank you Discover Soĉa Tours & Transfers for organising such an unforgettable experience! From the first email to the final goodbye, I felt well supported and looked after by Mateja and Miha.As a young female solo traveller, travelling in off season, it would have been impossible to see everything I wanted using public transport. Thankfully, Mateja and Miha were able to adapt to my budget and make my dreams a reality!My objective was to see the highlights of the Soĉa Valley, and we did just that (and more!). From visiting incredible natural gems to trying local Slovenian cuisine, together, we certainly achieved a lot across a 3 day transfer and tour itinerary.Having a knowledgeable and friendly guide like Mateja really made the whole experience even more amazing. You can tell she is very passionate about her country, its traditions and its people, so I learnt so much more than I could have than by doing it on my own (plus, it is always nice to have someone there to take pictures of you!).If you are wanting to experience the Soĉa Valley to its fullest potential, Discover Soĉa Tours & Transfers is the perfect fit for you. Save the stress of renting a car and instead, sit back and enjoy being looked after.
