In the hot summer days, there is nothing better than to cool down in some river or lake. And what I am about to suggest is not just any river. I’m talking about a trip to Soča, the most beautiful river in Slovenia, which you should definitely explore. Visiting the Soča Valley is a perfect choice to enjoy the nature, explore the mountains and of course, try out the rafting experience. One of the places, where you can arrange this great activity is Kobarid, whereas many other agencies in Bovec are offering such tours as well.

One of the places to enjoy your stay, especially if you are a group of people, is an eco House Furlan that offers modern and beautifully decorated apartments with a spirit of the past. It is located close to Kobarid and surrounded by nature at the same time, allowing you to admire all that and the surrounding mountains right from the balcony.

Rafting on the Soča River

There are many local groups that can take you to this extraordinary experience. They will nicely explain what to expect and how the rafting is going to be like, and what you should do. Yes, you won’t be just sitting in a raft, you will have to do some paddling, and definitely won’t make it out dry until the end of the trip, but I bet you will enjoy it a lot! They will provide you with all the necessary equipment that you need besides your own swimsuit and will make the rafting trip unforgettable. The tour guide will explain to you all the necessary details and amuse you with the stories about the Soča on the go. It sure is true, the trip is suitable for everyone, even for the newbies - that goes if you are at least a bit into sports and adventurous activities.
