The Soča Valley has a sub-Mediterranean, Alpine and moderate continental climate.
Summers in the valley are pleasantly warm with an average temperature of about 19°C but there are many days when daily temperatures rise up to 30°C. All the same, the heat is never a problem because people can freshen up in the Soča and other rivers in the area.
Winters tend to be mild compared to other destinations in the Julian Alps, at the same time there is a lot of snow in the mountains that persists in some parts until the late spring.
The Kanin mountains have the highest precipitation in Slovenia, mostly in the form of snow between November and March. There have been winters with over 5 m of snowfall, while other winters see no snow at all.
