About Bovec

Bovec is located on one of Europe's most fascinating rivers, in the most beautiful Alpine section of its flow down from the Julian Alps. The Soča river on its youthful way along changes colour from light blue through turquoise, emerald to green as it passes through quite diverse rock formations. This landscape is characterised by an outstanding wealth of diversity in its nature - numerous waterfalls with charming pools in hidden ravines and lush flora way up to the high mountain peaks in summertime with evergreen vegetation under the snow in winter.

Soča is a very diverse natural environment and offers the greatest variety of Mountain Biking and hiking tours in Slovenia. The oldest and longest nature trail in Triglav National Park, the Soča River Trail (part of Alpe Adria trail), takes you from the spring of the Soča river to Bovec. Even a short journey can offer a great family picnic with an unforgettable experience exploring the secrets of the Soča valley, river and mountains. Whether you are fly fishing or playing golf in its surroundings, unique mountain views are always near and ready to take your breath away; if you'd like another perspective, you can take a panoramic flight over the beautiful area or even try skydiving.

Kanin - Sella Nevea is the only high-mountain ski area in Slovenia. It is found in the SW part of Kanin mountain range which is only 60 km from the Adriatic Sea. By realising a long-lasting idea of connecting and uniting ski areas on both sides of the Kanin massive in 2009/2010 the ski resort Kanin - Sella Nevea became the first international cross-border ski centre in Slovenia as well as in the wider region.
