Adventure Center Bovec organizes caving trips in the Srnica cave located near Bovec.
Above Bovec hidden inside mount Kanin is one of Europe’s deepest caves. During your tour of Srnica you will enjoy a real caving experience as you climb shoots, walk ledges, cross gaps, and maneuver through narrow cavities. You will exit the cave by rappelling down a 40 meter vertical rock wall! Imbedded into the cave walls you will see fossilized shells. The tour isn’t difficult, but it is the perfect challenge for the real adventure seeker!
The tour begins in the Adventure Center Bovec office located in the village center. Here we will complete your registration for the trip. Next we will issue you all the necessary personal equipment (anorak, head lamp, helmet, harness). Then we will travel about ten minutes by bus to the cave‘s trailhead. Here you will change into your personal equipment issued earlier. Then we will walk for about 20-25 minutes to the entrance of the cave. Your experienced and certified guide will then give you a complete introduction including safety instructions and caving techniques. Then off you’ll go for an hour and a half of unforgettable caving! At the end of your trip, you will change clothes and return the earlier issued equipment. Finally, we will transport you by bus back to our office in the center of Bovec. This takes about ten minutes.
