Bovec is known as the adventure capital of Slovenia — it is here that you can go white water rafting, canyoning, biking, ziplining, kayaking, canoeing, and hiking. While we opted out of the adventure activities due to time constraints, these are easy to arrange as there are a number of companies that provide these tours.
We arrived in Bovec after a long day of driving the Vrsic Pass through the Soca Valley, and instantly found it to be it adorable. We stayed at Hotel Mangart; it was extremely easy to find (the first hotel when entering Bovec), and located approximately three minutes down the road from the WWI bunkers.
After an easy check-in, we were guided to our room, with an absolutely gorgeous balcony! I was in awe of the view of the Julian Alps and spent quite a bit of time standing out there, taking it all in.
The room was comfortable with more than enough space, a mini bar, flatscreen TV, free-WIFI, and a desk that I was able to use to get some writing done.
There isn’t much to do in the town itself, and there are only three or four places to eat, but we spent some time just wandering around the cute town; it was exceptionally relaxing! We returned to our room just in time to see a beautiful sunset off our balcony.
After a long, restful sleep, we were up early to make our way to Ljubljana. Our reservation included a breakfast buffet of tasty croissants, fresh honey and jams, eggs, breads, meats, and cheeses. We left Bovec with our bellies full, and memories of a hotel in which we definitely hope to return! The staff was lovely, the facilities wonderful, and the location ideal.
