Soča Valley is a Slovenian outdoor paradise. Fly fishing, rafting, kayaking, canyoning, walking, mountaineering, skiing and rock climbing, mountain biking and paragliding are only some of the most popular adventures in the valley. Untouched beauties of Triglav National Park, thematic trails and breathtaking views, mountain pastures, hundreds of years of local heritage and know how hidden in the local products, excellent restaurants, famous events or just romantic walks alongside the banks of the emerald river makes the valley a perfect place for active and green minded people.

The valley is also known for the Isonzo front. During the World War I it was a place of the one of the world's biggest and bloodiest mountain battles. Hemingway's novel Farwell to the arms describes some of the events. Reminds of the battle lines and fortifications, all of them placed in the astonishing natural surroundings are connected to the Walks of Peace thematic trail today.

There is only an hour drive from the sheer mountain valley to the Adriatic coast. The mixture of Mediterranean and alpine climates, geographic shapes and wild life is quite obvious in the way of local everyday life too - hard working and reliable mountain people are blessed with the Mediterranean hospitality and joy of life. The Soča Valley is a good place to be.
