The Soča river is a popular European kayaking destination. Offering varying levels of difficulty (from I to V), the rapids are suitable for beginners as well as advanced kayakers who prefer a technically demanding course.

GUIDED KAYAK TRIP ON SOČA RIVER

Kayaking down the Soča river is an incredible experience, offering kayakers a unique connection with nature’s beauty and tranquility. The emerald water provides a stunning backdrop for gliding along, creating an atmosphere that’s both serene and exhilarating.

Describing it as a “proper chill” on hot summer days kayaking on the Soča river can be a refreshing and relaxing activity, offering a way to beat the heat while immersing oneself in the beauty of the surroundings. On the other hand it can also be a great escape even on rainy days, allowing participants to forget about gloomy weather and instead embrace the peacefulness of the river.

Kayaking on the Soča river combines relaxation, adventure, and a deep connection with nature, providing a memorable and rejuvenating journey for kayakers of all levels.

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!

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.
