The Soča is a 136 km long river that flows through western Slovenia and northeastern Italy in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled valleys in Europe, springing from the limestone mountains in the north western part of the Julian Alps and quickly descending towards the sea. The rive flows majestically alongside mountain meadows, through steep gorges and under towering mountains until it reaches Italy, where it becomes the “Isonzo” then ending its short journey into the Adriatic sea

The river is famous for its remarkably clear emerald-green water, because of which its often called "The Emerald Beauty." It is said to be one of the rare rivers in the world that retain such a color throughout their length. The beautiful setting inspired Disney to film their 2008 movie Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian on this location.

For tourist, Soca and the region around it offers plenty of adrenaline rushing activities like mountain biking, water rafting, kayaking, paragliding, canyoning, and much more.
