The accompanying offer
While the main attractions of the town are clearly the nature and the extreme sports, Bovec has a complete accompanying offer to go with that. While it might be hard to find a variety of accommodation options in the summer months, that’s because of the sheer volume of visitors. There are rooms, apartments, hostels, campgrounds, and other options available, but they tend to fill up fast during the summer. That gives the town a unique vibe, along with a fantastic culinary offer and other attractions.
