Bovec Travel Guide: 68 reviews and 233 photos


Bovec, pronounced 'Bovits', is a lovely place to spend some time. I found the mountains especially very impressive. It lies in a wide flat plain which is situated at the place where the Soca (pronounced socha) and the Koritnica valleys meet.
The mountains that surround Bovec are Kanin which is 2587m high and is my favourite, you can get to near the top by cable car and the view is magnificant! There is also Rombon which is 2208m high and Bavski Grintavec 2347m, everywhere you look around you, you see high peaks, at the time I was there they were mostly white with snow.
There is the river Soca which is coloured an emerald green, I have several photos of it in one of my Bovec travellogues.

By cable car up mount Kanin

From this mountain I was supposed to have had the pleasure of gliding down to the valley, but the wind was not right while I was there so this time it did not happen. The view is magnificent up there, you can go skying or have some food and take in all the views. The cable car ride is something else, at first you go flat enough but then it is vertical up the mountain, a real nice thing to do when visiting Bovec, I would recommend it to everyone.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:This is a most amazing valley, beautiful, and the mountains magestic and friendly
  • Cons:No cons whatsoever
  • In a nutshell:I found the mountains here very grounding, almost comforting.

    beautiful photos Agnes! i was here way back in 2005, would love to see it again from the different perspective i seem to look at things now ive travelled a lot more plus am digital rather than film up to about 2005 or later. I drove from Paris through several countries to Slovenia and on to the Czech repub so it was an excellent trip

    Thank you for sharing, we are MOST impressed with this valley. The making of Chronicals of Narnia was there a few years ago, and we love the views we saw in the movie. I have it on my list of places to travel to.
