Prize at the top

Once you've reached the top, you can walk through the trenches, tunnels and caverns and relive the memory of an unfortunate, but important, event from a hundred years ago. Idyllic views will take you from the Adriatic Sea and over the green hills to the mighty Julian Mountains. The Kolovrat ridge is accessible from both Kobarid and Tolmin, and the roads are asphalted and less traveled.

The Soča Valley also offers many other cycling and hiking trails suitable for all levels of fitness and for all generations. Alpine air salted with the Mediterranean, excellent cuisine, natural wonders and unforgettable experiences will make your week and your year. Those who come will fall in love with the Soca forever.

Test your strength and perseverance in the Race across Slovenia challenge.
