Slovenia is a little country in the heart of Europe with incredible natural attractions and a diverse landscape.

“Soča, you are the beautiful daughter of the mountains”. That is how the famous Slovenian poet Simon Gregorčič described the Slovenian river Soča, which impresses everyone with its emerald colour and picturesque surroundings.

For a lot of visitors, Soča is one of the most amazing rivers in Europe. It is especially popular amongst people who enjoy fishing, rafting, canoeing and other outdoor activities.

With the mountains and plateaus that surround the Soča river, it is also well-liked amongst mountain climbers, hikers and backcountry skiers.

For cyclists, there are many beautiful roads with breath taking views of Slovenian nature.
