After short wall up and little climbing (chains etc.) you reach the source... it beautiful! Nice trip even for very warm day, path is in shadow of the forest, you can refresh yourself in water of Soča.

We actually started at the Izviru Soče and walked downstream, along the river and road to the town of Soce. It's an incredible walk (hike!). The views are stunning!! You should be aware though that the description of the trail is a bit "misleading". It...More

This is an easy hike for most people and well worth the short time and some effort to make it to the spring area. The trail leaves a quaint, small service hut a few miles up from the visitor center in Trenta. It's an easy...More

Take care when you get to the source. We walked from about half way along the Soca Valley. Around 5 hours there and back. Amazing. Really

Just a tip if you would like to take it easy and still enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Soca river valley: take a train ride from Bled to Nova Gorica. It is only 1.5 hours by train and you see a lot of beautiful...More

Water is swift and clear, trails clean and easy to access. Every turn takes your breath away. Slovenians are friendly and quick to share their pride in their country and its beauty.

A little physical exertion is needed to reach the final destination (10-15 min climb and 5 minutes on the railings) and you will be rewarded with one of the “emerald marvels” of the Soča Valley. Two great slabs of stone form a cave through which...More
