Go with the flow and doughnut down the Soča River…
Nicknamed the Marble River for the type of trout that swims upstream, this placid section of the mighty Soča is a peaceful ride that focuses on the stunning vistas of Triglav National Park – travelling in the heart of the Julian Alps on the emerald waters that make it so infamous!
Operating on the Upper Soča – a grade one section of the river, this waterway runs through the Julian Alps on the edge of Triglav National Park. A European Destination of Excellence (EDEN), it is home to the highest mountain range and Slovenia’s tallest waterfall.
Meet your guide at the activity base in Bovec for this tubing excursion on the Marble River. A fun and accessible activity for groups of friends and families alike, start with a short transfer to the river’s edge where you will receive a safety briefing and jump in your doughnut. Equipped with a paddle, this gentle sightseeing tour passes in view of some of the area’s most popular landmarks that include Mt. Triglav (2,864m), Boka Waterfall (106m), Mt. Kanin (2587 m) and the Prestreljenik Window (2499 m). A half day excursion with an approximate 1.5h descent, don’t forget to look under your inflatable for a chance to see the area’s namesake marble river trout - jumping in for a quick swim and enjoying the crystal clear waters of the Soca. Once you reach the end of this river section, you will be transferred back to base to dry off and change.
A class I section, the Soča is open to tourists from March until October each year with more manageable conditions and less powerful currents in summer. Please consult the river grading below:
