What to do in Bovec on rainy days

Posted: May 22, 2018 in Uncategorized

Were you planing your perfect holiday in Bovec but got caught by a surprise by the rain?

No problem at all. It’s true that Bovec is mostly known for its outdoorsy activities, but there are still some interesting places to visit and things to do despite bad weather.

So don’t worry about the rain, just be the sunshine and make yourself a rainbow! 🙂

Here are some of our TOP things to do on rainy days in Bovec area:
 Do water activities

There is nothing more fun and exciting than water activities in the rain. You get wet during rafting/kayaking/canyoning anyway, so why wouldn’t you do it on the rainy days and perhaps spend the sunny ones hiking!? It’s a win-win decision! 😉


Classic rafting tour takes place on 10km Soča river route from Boka to Trnovo. Rafting is especially fun during or after rain, since the level of the water gets higher and so do the rapids! 😉




If you prefer more individual sports, than kayaking on Soča river is the right choice. On kayak trip you will learn how to maneuver kayak on your own and paddle the rapids like a pro! 😉



And for the most adventurous ones there is canyoning! Walk, climb, jump, upseil and swim in the most pristine waters that Bovec valley has to offer!

There are plenty of canyons in the valley, suitable for all generation and level of experiences!




Please notice: For safety reasons take part in this activities in guided tours only. We highly recommend agency Aktivni planet on the main square of Bovec with more than 20 years of experiences!
