Let’s do camping! Set up your tent somewhere in Western Slovenia!
Let’s do camping!
I love camping. Are you a nature lover? Do you travel around with a tent? There are many perfect spots in Soca valley in the Western Slovenia where you can set up your tent. Detour a bit and enjoy in a peaceful countryside, experience typical local cuisine on a Food Tour and do some sport activities. Or attend some festivals 🙂
Where to camp?
In Slovenia wild camping is not allowed. You can do it on private (not public) grounds if you manage to get the permission from a land owner for example. The other way is to use camps. And Slovenia offers a lot of them! Actually, staying in a camp when on a visit in our country is the closest way to discover our natural heritage in all its beauty. Plan your travel itinerary and read how to get to Soca valley.
Today I will write about where you can stay close to nature when you will be travelling through Slovenia. And even if Slovenia is just one country on your European road-trip, you are more than welcome to detour a little bit and pay a visit to our emerald green beauty of Soca river!
Even in (or near) Soca Valley you can choose from more than 15 campsites, usually small, but each of them lies in the unique and special location. Good part of being small is the fact that these kind of camps offer you all the luxury as bigger ones, but they are not crowded with thousands of people.
When to camp?
Campsites near Bovec are usually open from April till mid October. Those are also the best months for hiking, cycling, mountaineering or just relaxing on your vacation. Believe me, if you like to feel real adrenaline, you have plenty of other options, such as: canyoning, rafting and even skydiving. Please check their official site here.
Autumn and winter in this area are not really the best times of the year for camping, but if you will like to come back and take some snowy pictures you are more than welcome to spend a night in Herbal Rooms, just 60 kilometers from Bovec.
And if for example, you come here without a tent, never mind, in the most campsites they can provide you a tent for rent or you can try glamping or sleeping in their apartments and huts. Believe me, this will be the experience you will remember forever!
