North of the town of Tržič, you will find a beautiful route between the mountain walls. A public road runs through the Dovžan Gorge. So you don’t need to buy a ticket for the Entrance. It is a beautiful area for a hike.
Rainfall in 2023 damaged the route. This reveals the power of water from this normally idyllic river Tržič Bistrica
The Soča Gorge (Small Soča Gorge)
The Soča River flows along the road from the Vrsič Pass towards Bovec. Halfway down, the river flows through a metre-deep gorge. Several bridges along the road allow you to see the clear blue water churning through the gorge.
A little further on, the gorge widens into a babbling river in which you can swim. The end of the narrow gorge offers a beautiful rock formation from which daredevils can take a dip.
Here you will find parking (paid) at the part where you can swim. You can also walk back along the gorge from there.
