Project Description

Magical Soča and the Tolminka River Valley

Posočje and the towns surrounding Tolmin are lauded as the most magical part of Slovenia. Its hills are sprinkled with tiny villages and protected by the towering Julian Alps. A real beauty, the Soča River, twirls through the valley and lends a magical aura to the towns on its banks with its color and wonderful pools. Even more magical are the locals, the hardworking and truly warm people who love their land and traditions immensely. The countless memories of the Isonzo Front are an emotional reminder while the breathtaking vistas and the coolness of montane rivers bring a smile to the faces of cyclists.

Cycling with eBikes is absolutely awesome as you can enjoy all the views while riding. And the tour to the Tolminka spring does not lack those. If you experience it with the GreenHills Team, the adventure is guaranteed.

Since I’m not a regular cyclist, I was slightly worried about the trip we chose. But I must say that the top cycling gear, really professional and skilled guides, and breathtakingly beautiful spots made the tour with the GreenHills Team one of the most enjoyable trips.
