Day 1

DAY TRIP PLAN

Morning pick up at the hotel for a trip to the Soča Valley and the wine region of Goriška brda. Passing Nova Gorica we arrive at Goriška brda. Visit the lookout tower (23m high with 144 steps) for a magnificent view of the wine area and in good weather views will stretch all the way to the Julian Alps, Dolomites, river Vipava and Soča Valley, Karst area, Gulf of Trieste and even the Venice Lagoon. As this is a well-known wine area with excellent wines, we visit one of the many wine cellars. While tasting some of the local wines we learn about the wine making process. Afterwards we drive to Tolmin and visit the Tolmin Gorge, where beautiful nature and water create magic colours and forms. A walk in nature, on the Emerald route, will fill you with energy. After the visit of Tolmin Gorges will be time for picnic in beautiful nature. We continue to Kobarid, where you can visit the Kobarid museum of World War I, presenting a millennium of the turbulent history of Kobarid, and you can walk up a hill from which a beautiful view of an ossuary of Italian soldiers can be seen. Soča Valley is the most beautiful region in Slovenia. We will drive to Bovec, to the small village of Soča.
