MAGNIFICENT SOČA GORGES
Trenta valley is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful parts of the Julian Alps. The valley boasts one of the most beautiful alpine rivers – the emerald Soča. This elegant beauty has carved through the valley a deep canyon, which is today considered to be one of the most breathtaking natural sights in the Julian Alps. I am happy to say Soča gorges are my getaway place, where I can relax and feel the glory of life and power of nature. I come to these parts often, to explore, to jump into natural pools and dive into mysterious underworld of the magnificent Soča Gorges.
GORGE SNORKELING IS A SPECIAL KIND OF ACTIVITY
Neoprene suits, diving masks and fins on feet allow easy and comfortable exploring of depths of the gorges that are otherwise very hard to access. It is a special union of nature, natural beauty, human and the cold flow of the river. Gorge Snorkeling is a special kind of activity – exploring, observing, diving, swimming and floating in crystal clear water. It is a combination of pure pleasure and adventure. Snorkeling in the gorges will get you close to the Soča Trout – the unique specimen of the river Soča. It is unforgettable to see it move and float through the water.
UNEXPLORED UNDERWATER WORLD OF THE GORGES
Located in the heart of Triglav National Park, embraced by impossibly high mountains, Soča Gorges are, filled with cold, crystal clear mountain water, a summer paradise. In the hot summer months it is refreshing to jump in the cool water, but very few are brave enough to stay in water and have a swim in it. It is only with a warm neoprene suit and a mask when swimming and diving becomes a pleasure and allows to explore the unexplored underwater world of the Gorges. High cliffs rising above the river and the depth of the canyon are perfect for everyone who wants to take their adventure to the next level. Jumping off rocky cliffs or cliff-diving are adventure unlike any other. Take a pick of height you are comfortable jumping from and indulge yourself in a unique enjoyment.
It is safe to say once you experience the Soča Gorges, you never forget them. A different kind of a world, unique natural beauties and true adventure are an assurance of unforgettable impressions and memories. The natural world of the river is like a kingdom and deep gorges are the emerald river’s throne.
