Full description
Enjoy a day trip to the Soča river valley, one of the most enchanting and scenic areas in Slovenia, located on the other side of the Julian Alps but easily reachable on a day trip from Ljubljana.

Depart from Ljubljana and climb into an air-conditioned minivan. On the way to the valley, make a stop in Kranjska Gora, a small ski resort town which is also home to the picturesque Jasna Lake. Then, drive across the highest mountain pass in Slovenia, Vrsic, situated at 1611 meters above sea level. Learn about how the monumental road that leads up to this pass was built during World War I. On the way up, pass the Russian Chapel, a wooden church hidden in the woods which commemorates the Russian prisoners of war who perished whilst building this road. Vrsic is located at the heart of the Julian Alps and its natural scenery is breathtaking and unique.

Also make a stop in Kobarid, the hometown of World's Best Female Chef 2017, Ana Ros. Kobarid also boasts an award-winning WWI museum and a quaint town center which you can explore on foot. Towering above it is a monumental ossuary as a memorial to the Italian soldiers that fell on the Soca Valley front. Visit the museum or take a walk to the Kozjak waterfall, which is considered to be one of the most striking waterfalls in Slovenia.

When you arrive at the Soca Valley, discover amazing colors, lively rapids, and spectacular carved gorges, all the way down the river. Justly called the Emerald Beauty, the Soca river is famous for its green-blue color, and its purity and clarity which you will have plenty of opportunities to admire. In the summer, don't forget your swimwear and a towel so you can enjoy a swim amidst the breathtaking scenery. For those who crave adrenaline, take part in plenty of water sports like canyoning, rafting, kayaking, and zipline. Return to Ljubljana by minivan where you will be dropped off at your hotel.
