The Soča Valley is a paradise for those who seek active experiences. The rapids of the emerald Soča River are the place to try a variety of adrenaline activities like rafting, kayaking and canoeing. Hidden gorges offer possibilities for canyoning and challenging zip-lining. Three international long-distance hiking trails run through the valley. Kanin, the highest Slovenian ski resort, offers winter joy on skis right up to late spring.
The Soča Valley has many natural attractions like the Trenta Valley, the picturesque waterfalls Boka, Kozjak and Virje, the Soča Gorge and the Tolmin Gorge.
During World War I, the most ferocious battles took place in the Soča Valley, namely on the Isonzo Front. The traces of war battles can be found all over the valley. The most important monuments dedicated to WWI are the Kobarid Museum and the Memorial Church of the Holy Spirit in Javorca. History can be explored at the Tolmin Museum or you can ride from Most na Soči by steam train along the picturesque Bohinj railway line.
The combined Alpine and Mediterranean climate creates exceptional flavours. Sheep cheese from Bovec and Tolminc cheese are protected types of cheese. The gifts of nature have also inspired top chef Ana Roš, who creates culinary wonders at Hiša Franko, the only Slovenian restaurant with two Michelin stars.
The cultural life of the Soča Valley is designed by many sports, music and gastronomy events.
