In the western part of Slovenia at the foothills of the Julian Alps, right on the border with Italy, travelers can find the fascinatingly beautiful valley of the river Soča, one of the most beautiful rivers in Europe.

The picturesque environment enables a number of really interesting sports and other activities for individuals or groups. The valley is a paradise for water sports on the river Soča (rafting, kayaking, canoes, hydrospeed, canoeing,…) as well as for fishing and it also offers numerous opportunities for hiking and mountain biking.

For food and wine lovers, Kobarid is a direct hit! Tradition and heritage are still alive in family restaurants and taverns where travelers can taste the meals of ancestors like “Kobariški štruklji”, home-made polenta, Alpine cheese and cottage cheese…

Local cooks transform old recipes into top-notch culinary goods with innovative approaches. Discovering the lively ethnological heritage and trying Tolminc cheese, which has been made following the same traditional method for centuries along the grazing grounds above Kobarid, is truly a special experience.
