DESCRIPTION AND LOCATION

Tolmin, the town that gave the name to the entire region, is the largest settlement in Zgornje Posocje (Upper Soca Valley) as well as the economic, cultural and administrative centre of the valley. Its streets and houses bask in sunlight on a terrace above the confluence of Soca and Tolminka rivers. It is positioned at the right distance from the steep mountainous valleys, so that inhabitants may enjoy mild winters, and from the sea and Gorica plateau, so that they may take pleasure in enjoyable summers. This section includes the area of valleys and mountain villages above Tolminka and Zadlašcica, and continues through the hinterland of Volce and Ciginj all the way to the state border on Kolovrat.

NATURAL HERITAGE

Ravines and basins: The most famous are the Tolminka and Zadlašcica basins at the entrance to the Triglav National Park, which are also its lowest point (180 m). A special feature of the Tolminka basins is a thermal spring at the end of the path. Waterfalls: The region boasts several record-holders (Brinta Waterfall 104 m, Gregorcic Waterfall 88 m) and several smaller but no less ravishing jewels hidden in the ravines of the Mrzli Potok, Godica, Pšcak and Sopotnica. Since the access to majority of waterfalls is fairly difficult, you are strongly recommended to hire a guide.
Caves: Although caves in the area are not equipped for massive tourist visits, many of them can still be visited under the guidance of experienced cavers.
