One of the most stunning rivers in Europe is still reserved mostly for the locals who brave the freezing waters. Carving gorges and waterfalls and surrounded by mountains, this is a place that has inspired the artists and captured its visitors. Hop in the car and take a slow trip through this valley.

Cross the Soca, find your way to Kobarid and wind your way through a forest and you’ll walk through a little river before bending round into this stunning cavern. There’s also two other hidden falls here near the bridge, one with a beautiful swimming hole which most people miss. It’s freezing and completely worth it.
