VISIT SOČA VALLEY
The Soča Valley is a jewel of Slovenia and a must-see for outdoor enthusiasts. The Emerald River flowing through it will undoubtedly take your breath away! It is hardly surprising that the famous Slovenian poet Simon Gregorčič wrote a poem about it.
The SUP tour starts with an introductory briefing on paddle-boarding and instructions on how to stand on the board. In the introductory course, you will get to know the SUP gear, paddle-boarding techniques and learn step by step how to find your balance on the board. Do not be afraid of falling into the cold Soča River. We will give you a short wetsuit and a really large, stable sup board. And just so you know – our survival statistics is 99%!
After you gain your balance and confidence on the board, the real fun begins. We will glide under the famous bridge and experience a true paddle-boarding paradise! Bridges, canyon, cliffs and rocks are creating a very interesting playground.
The many, fast-changing faces of the river and the secrets waiting behind every corner will definitely take you by surprise. You will slowly realize that paddle-boarding is a unique way to observe nature from a different perspective – a truly magnificiant experience!
HAVE FUN ON THE BOARD
It's not only about paddling.
Crystal clean Soča and Idrijca river will make you wanna jump in and refresh yourself and even try some yoga poses on the board!
DISCOVER THE SECRETS OF THE EMERALD VALLEY
After paddle boarding experience our exploration of the Soča Valley continues with driving through the valley, taking a short hike to the gorgeous Kozjek waterfall, making a quick stop at the Korita Gorge and marvelling at the rock formation “Ajdovska deklica” or the Heathen Maiden before we finally reach the top of Vršič Mountain Pass.
You will spend the entire day in the embrace of the highest Alps in Slovenia and taste traditional dishes, such as “ajdovi žganci” or buckwheat porridge, goulash with polenta, apple or sweet cottage cheese strudel, “potica” the Slovenian sweet bread etc. On the way back to Ljubljana, we will be treated to a beautiful display of sunset-kissed mountains, Škrlatica and Špik.
