Summer months are here. Kids being out of school and longer days are a perfect combination for a weekend getaway! Why not spend family time in the nature? You do not know where to go? Try a village called Bovec, which is located in the northwestern part of Slovenia. This little mountain gem offers numerous possibilities to explore the breathtaking surroundings of this Slovenian region. The attractive Soča valley represents an idyllic escape from the hustle and bustle of big cities and is a great choice for a short break in the fresh mountain air. In addition, the cooler mountain air is always a good idea during long and hot summer days. Here, we collected some ideas on how to spend a great family weekend in the nature in Bovec.
The area around Bovec offers a wide range of water and non-water sports activities. Soča Splash agency provides also a so-called family friendly rafting. This rafting is meant for families with smaller children, therefore the swimming knowledge is not obligatory. It runs on a soother part of Soča river, with less rapids and obstacles, and is a good choice for families who look for a calmer, yet fun rafting experience. The safety is provided by our experienced rafting guides and brand new equipment, so no need to worry about that:) Family rafting is a great idea during hot summer days, as the easy ride along the Soča river definitely cools you down and provides refreshment in its beautiful emerald pools. During the ride we entertain ourselves with various games.

ADVENTURE PARK SRNICA
Another option is to visit the Adventure park Srnica. This park is located above the 120m long canyon of Srnica. The park offers some hiking, but also climbing elements, which could be described as easy via ferrata. This means that we use climbing gear to attach ourselves on the iron bars, which make up a route on the rocks. In the park, there are also hanging bridges and various obstacles which make the experience more fun. To top it up, there is also a short zip-line at the end, which offers great views of the gorgeous canyon.
