Alpine River Rafting

By Linda Tancs

Water sports enthusiasts adore the Soča, an Alpine river that rumbles for eighty-six miles through western Slovenia and northeastern Italy.  Its tropical hue of green/blue belies the exhilaration it offers adventure travelers like kayakers, who are greeted with signage at various entry points warning them not to underestimate the river’s wrath.  Don’t overestimate your talents; take some lessons at one of the many kayak schools all along the river.  Bovec is a popular point of entry where you can obtain a river permit.  Enjoy the season through October.
