One of our favorite countries in Europe is Slovenia, it is such a lush green hilly country and it feels a bit like its the New Zealand of Europe. The most spectacular area we visited while we were in Slovenia was the Bovec region. This region lies along the breathtaking emerald green Soča river and the town Bovec is the capital for outdoor sports in Slovenia. With mountains that linger in the blue sky, an emerald-green river, green alpine meadows and multicolored waterfalls, Bovec offers picturesque scenes that are a must add to your bucket list.

Where to stay

If you are looking for a great place to stay and you are not on a budget we recommend Apartments Mrakič. The apartment has an excellent location for exploring lots of walks nearby.

They have a well equipped kitchen & good sized rooms and an amazing view of the mountains. We hope to return! They get an average rating of 9.5 on booking. 

Best time to visit

We recommend to visit the Bovec region from June til September. In summer the alps become free of snow and water pumps into the Soča river. Such a pretty sight. Just keep in mind the river is very cold and maybe even to cool for swimming. Click here for more average weather details.
