The basics

One of the best ways to see the Soca Valley is on a rafting or kayaking trip on the Soca River. Choose between exhilarating whitewater rafting or gentle kayak and paddle boarding trips. For an extremely thrilling adventure, opt for a canyoning trip and rappel down waterfalls, glide down natural water slides, and swim through narrow gorges and pools.

Other options in Soca Valley include hiking, mountain biking, climbing, fishing, horseback riding, and in the winter months, skiing, ice climbing, snowshoeing, and more. Visitors interested in World War I history can follow the Walk of Peace trail or the Kobarid Historical Trail, which pass by remnants of trenches, forts and buildings and several war monuments.

Amazing tour!
This tour was amazing!!! Out tour guide Aleksandra was so friendly, helpful and took us to all the best spots! The group is really small which was really nice as you can meet other people on it I’d 1000% recommend this tour if you’re in the area, and the zip line is definitely worth doing too I had such a great time, thank you!

7 Alpine Wonders- Day Tour Bled, Soca valley, Slovenia
We had a private tour with our 6 month old baby today and it was fantastic. Our guide was great company, giving us good facts and legend tales, letting us take plenty time to take photos plus change and feed the baby. The sights were incredible and they made a great effort for us to have a good time including changing the day of the tour for better chances of good weather. So pleased we did this tour!

Guided Sit-on-top Kayaking Adventure in the Soča Valley from Čezsoča
We had a wonderful experience! Top guides and top day! We were warmly welcomed by the team and felt safe throughout the whole trip. They provided us not only all the equipment and photos incl. in the Price, but also explained everything we saw around the soča valley. The guide was genuine and a lot of fun. It was more like kayaking with a group of friends than a booked trip with strangers. ☺️ Really glad that we booked with them. We are definitely coming back!

7 Alpine Wonders- Day Tour Bled, Soca valley, Slovenia
Altitude Travels have to be commended for their extreme professionalism and prompt communication. The day was well-organised and brilliantly led by our awesome guide Aleksandra. She took care to make sure the needs of everyone in the group were met and was fun and knowledgeable. Her passion for nature is obvious and she is a wonderful ambassador for Slovenia. The pace of the day was just right. The waterfall and Soca gorge was awesome. My son tried the ziplining and he found it exhilarating. Good footwear / walking shoes and water are a must, snacks would be a bonus. There are stops where you can buy drinks and food if necessary.

7 Alpine Wonders- Day Tour Bled, Soca valley, Slovenia
Timo, our guide went to great lengths both before and during our trip to ensure we had a fantastic day. This particular trip offered a great opportunity to explore the country a little more, see some amazing natural wonders, and all guides were very positive and keen to share information. We really appreciated the pick up and drop off at our hotel. A particular highlight was the gorge. Would strongly recommend this trip. We opted for the additional extra of the zipline which was coordinated well and was another fantastic (although not for the fainthearted!) experience. Thank you!
