The spatiotemporal dynamics of high‐intensity femtosecond laser pulses is studied within a rigorous physical model. The pulse propagation is described by the nonlinear envelope equation. The propagation and the material equations are solved self‐consistently at realistic physical conditions. Self‐compression of the pulse around single‐cycle regime and dramatic increase of the pulse intensity is found. At certain conditions, the peak intensity, transversal width, time duration, and the spatiotemporal pulse shape remain stable with the propagation of the pulse, resembling a soliton formation process. This, to our knowledge, is the first simulation of high‐intensity ultrashort soliton formation dynamics in the ‐dimensional case.
