Tolmin–Kobarid Land of Living Water

Print Add to travel planner
The Soča Valley is the most attractive Slovenian hub for outdoor activities. The protected area of Triglav National Park boasts remarkable landmarks, panoramas and views; cycling tours there include visits to unique World War I heritage sites.
The Soča, nestled among the jewels of the Julian Alps, and its tributaries have created countless waterfalls, pools, ravines, springs and canyons, which command admiration and capture the imagination of the sharp-eyed visitor. It is easy and fun to explore these half-hidden places by bicycle. Also, the mountainous terrain holds many challenges for well-trained cyclists.

Cycling tours
As many as 73 cycling tours are included in the guidebooks covering the areas around Kobarid and Tolmin. The tours run through the Soča Valley, along and above the Nadiža River, through the Bača Gorge, across Trebuša and the Šentvid Plateau, and reach across the former Italian border to Venetian Slovenia. The tours are 20–50 km long and come in three difficulty grades. The first grade denotes routes suitable for families, the second for intermediate cyclists and the third for advanced riders. The easy tours lead through valleys and across plateaus, whereas the more difficult ones, with an elevation gain of up to 2,000 m, run along mountain roads and cart tracks in the rolling foothills of the Julian Alps. Five tours lead to Triglav National Park. All the tours available are circular.
