Swimming in Slovenian Soca River

Swimming in the Soca river in Slovenia is a fantastic experience not to be missed. Most people swim only in the summer months June – September due to its warmer temperature.

Soca has a special emerald green colour and it can be very pleasant to have a dip or a proper swim in the summer. We swim in the river at the southern part near the town of Most na Soci as part of our lake swimming tour in Slovenia. The river is very safe to swim in and there is usually no other traffic apart from local kayakers and occasionally a local steamboat.

In the upper river part, Soca is famous for its white water rafting activities.

There are a number of other outdoor activities that you can do in this beautiful Soca valley. Some of them are recreational river rafting, canyoning, skydiving, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, bungee jumping, paragliding, mountain biking, open water swimming, hiking, etc.

Below are some of the photos from our 2018 and 2019 swimming tour seasons.
