"ADVENTURE SPORTS" Bovec Sports & Outdoors Tip by mtncorg
Bovec Sports & Outdoors: 7 reviews and 10 photos
Bovec tries hard to make its claim as the capital for adventure sports in Slovenia: kayaking, rafting, canyoneering, hydrospeed ? river boarding here in the US ? as well as tandem paragliding, spelunking, climbing and skiing. Most come for the water sports and you can find enthusiasts camped out at several of the nearby campgrounds with their kayaks in hand. A variety of rapids can be run along both the Soča and Koritnica from class I through V ? you need to pick up a license to run the river beforehand. You can also pick up a fishing license if speed is not your gig. Certain areas are catch and release only. Judging from the aerial traffic, it seemed that Kobarid is the busier center for paragliders with the nearby peak of Stol being the most popular take off spot.
Equipment: Bring your own gear or you can rent most stuff here, it is just that sometimes when your life is on the line it is nice to have your own equipment along.
