Meet your driver and guide at the hotel for a full day tour of Soca Valley and Slovenia’s quaint alpine villages. With the spectacular views of snow-capped summits and green meadows adorned with picturesque villages, you will start your journey through the Julian Alps. Named in honour of Ceasar himself, Julian Alps are one of the most beautiful parts of Slovenia. You will pass the famous ski resort of Kranjska Gora, home to the many world ski events during the winter season. Should you wish, you can stop for a walk around the beautiful Jasna Lake, the overture to the magnificent Soca Valley. You will go through the highest saddle in the area – Vrsic – and enjoy the spectacular views on the mountains and valley. Deeply carved into the white limestone of the magnificent Julian Alps, Soca Valley offers wide palette of wonderful colors, full of waterfalls, ravines and canyons, with its own distinct flora and fauna. The blue-green Soca River flows over white gravel and through this fairy-tale valley. This emerald route will take us to the small and amiable town of Kobarid. Here you will find an excellent museum reflecting the region's importance as one of the main fronts during World War l (graphically described by Ernest Hemingway in “A Farewell to Arms”). Kobarid is the town in Slovenia that can boast the highest number of excellent restaurants in one single place. Even for the fussiest lovers of good food and excellent wine, a visit to Kobarid will be a great experience. We will leave some time for lunch and then we will continue to the Vipava region – home to the excellent autochthonous wines and exquisite local cuisine. We will treat you with a wine tasting in one of the traditional local wineries and show the sky-high levels of Slovenia's art of wine making. In the afternoon, your guide and driver will take you back to your hotel.
