Takeoff spots above Kobarid

With its setting of high Julian Alps peaks, Kobariski Stol is a paragliding pilot’s paradise.

Mountain Stol above Kobarid

Its over 20 km long panoramic ridge tops provide extraordinary opportunities for long cross-country flights and large-scale competitions.

As the highest takeoff in the Soca Valley, Stol (Kobariski) is often the only take-off above the inversion layer, providing opportunities for thermal flying.
