Soča Valley is an active nature amateur’s paradise. With its setting of high Julian Alps peaks, Kobariški Stol is a paragliding pilot’s paradise. Its over 20 km long panoramic ridge tops provide extraordinary opportunities for long cross-country flights and large-scale competitions.
As the highest takeoff in the Soča Valley, Kobariški Stol is often the only take-off above the inversion layer, providing opportunities for thermal flying. Kobala is a popular paragliding and hang gliding take-off, as well as an excellent starting point for long cross-country flights on the southern crest of the Julian Alps and a well-known competition site.
There are several other less popular take-offs in the Soča Valley area: Kanin, Matajur and Kuk – Livek above the town of Kobarid.
