Bus departures from Ljubljana at 7.00 am in direction of Tolmin via Idrija. Our first stop is at an accumulation lake nearby the town of Most na Soči. The emerald green colour of the lake is captivating and it makes you want to stay a bit further, get on a boat or walk the paths that are spread by the lake.
We’ll come back later, but now we continue to the Tolminska korita gorges. The term refers to the Tolminka and the Zadlaščica rivers, their respective gorges that merge at the confluence of these two wild rivers into the magnificent Tolminska korita. This natural monument is the lowest and probably the most striking entry point into the Triglav National Park. To experience another character of the Soča river, we return to Most na Soči and take a two-hour-boat ride on the river, which is now wide and slow, so we can enjoy the views while having lunch.
Once we disembark, we continue up the Soča valley to the town of Kobarid, where we visit the military memorial, situated on the hill above Kobarid. This octagonal monument and an ossuary was built in memory of the Italian soldiers who perished during the First World War.
Our last stop is a museum of cheese in Kobarid. The heritage of livestock pasturing is presented with ethnological exhibits, a documentary, a reconstruction of a mountain camp and the equipment for processing milk. A snack of these delicious home made dairy products also concludes our tour in the afternoon. We arrive to Ljubljana around 6.00 pm.
