The beauty of Trenta valley, the emerald colour of Soča river and hospitality of locals of Bovško enchants everybody.
Visit one of the most beautiful valleys in the world!
Did you know that Emerald river Soča was also a movie set for “Chronicle of Narnia”?
The trip begins in Bled/Ljubljana or any other arranged location.
2. Jasna lake
Just before Vršič pass in Kranjska Gora lies Jasna lake. There are walking paths around the lake, which has very clear, green, very cold water. At the lake shore stands a statue of the legendary Zlatorog, a perfect photo opportunity for your album.
3. Vršič – Russian Chapel
Vršič is the highest mountain pass in eastern Julian Alps. The road over the pass was built by Russian prisoners of war during the WWI. Today there is a Russian Chapel built in memory of those prisoners of war and all casualties of WWI. The Chapel is a reminder of the nonsense of world wars.
4. Trenta and the source of Soča
Trenta is a glacial valley in Triglav National Park and is the highest part of Soča valley. The source of Soča is one of the most beautiful karst sources in our mountains. To see the source of Soča we will take a 15 minute walk from the Cottage at the source of Soča. The trail is maintained and partly secured with pitons and steel cables.
A nice destination in the valley of the emerald river Soča, partly in the heart of the Triglav National Park amidst the summits of Julian Alps is a true holiday paradise. You can relax, have an active vacation and learn about soška fronta (Isonzo front). Bovec is being discovered by numerous film makers and Disney’s Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian was partially shot there.
6. Boka waterfall
Boka is a karst water source, a waterfall and a swift mountain stream, a tributary of Soča. Boka waterfall is 106 meter high and 18 meters wide and is the most magnificent waterfall in Slovenija and in Europe. If you add the 33 meter high cascade under it, this is probably the highest waterfall in Slovenia (139 meters).
7. Rafting (Optional)
The most famous Soča descent starts near the beautiful 106 meter high Boka Falls in the vicinity of Žaga village. On the first part of the 10 km long descent, which is not all that demanding, we will prepare for the range of rapids we will encounter in the second, more demanding part. The descent ends at the bridge in Trnovo.
Napoleon’s Bridge is a graduated stone bridge over the narrow canyon of Nadiža river, built around 1812 and is a testimony to importance of this transit area from the Roman times onward. The ancient trail from Pradola and Robidišče towards Nadiža runs over the bridge.
Kozjak waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Slovenia. The waterfall carved a dark chamber but the ceiling has caved in and the chamber is now a pool of blue-green water.
9. Most na Soči
Stands at confluence of rivers Soča and Idrijca. When they built the dam on Soča river for the hydro power plant, a reservoir formed here. The beautiful pristine nature, clear lake water and numerous water fowl are incentive enough to visit the Most na Soči lake.
10. Auto Train
The famed railway track built in 1906 connects Most na Soči and Bohinjska Bistrica. With its quaintness, viaducts and the longest railway tunnel in Slovenija (6327 meters) it will enchant everybody.
11. Bohinj Lake
Bohinj Lake with its 3,19 km2 is the largest permanent natural lake in Slovenija. It lies in Julian Alps at 526 meters above sea level between Pršivec to the North and Vogel to the South. This is one of the most beautiful lakes in Slovenija and a true paradise for trekking, skydiving, bathing, adrenaline parks and many other activities.
