"Emerald River Adventure" with 3glav Adventures Bled Reviews
Nice way to see Slovenia Oct 13, 2011
Compared to the price at 65 Euro, the trip was great.
We started of the trip by being picked up by two vans at Jazz apartments where we stayed and headed up to Jasna lake where we went for a short walk and we were offered to ride the "golden goat" for good luck. The lake was nice and it was just a short 5 minute walk back and forth to the vans. Not much to do here, but nice scenery.
After this we were driven up to Slovenias highest mountain pass, Vrsic, at 1611 meters and walked a short hike around the surrounding area and was told shortly about the battle that took place in these parts during WWI.
Returning to the vans we headed of to the Soca valley to hike up to the source of the Soca river. A nice climb along the mountainsides made this a more fun hiking experience that even the people with fear of heights seemed to enjoy.
After reaching the "source" of the Soca river we went back down to the vans for a short drive to a small roadside restaurant for lunch and people could change their clothes for the white water rafting in the Soca river afterwards. :D
I unfortunately did not join in on the rafting this time. Do regret it a bit, but done it a couple of times before and it was only categorized as a grade 3. And with the ice cold water I decided not to join in this time.
After the others was finished rafting we went on another hike to the beautiful Kozjak waterfall. Well worth the trip alone. :D
On the way back on the road we stop by a bridge where you can jump of a 12 meter high tower, but recommend doing this only during summer when the water is warm....
As the sun went down we took a car train ride for 40 minutes to Bohinj lake before returning to our hostel.
Worth the trip! Great gang and bring a MP3-player for the car trip! They will hook it up to the stereo. ;)
