We meet in Solkan, in the courtyard of the Kayak Canoe Centre Solkan, where experienced and qualified instructors of the adventure park greet you. After the presentation of the programme, you cross the emerald Soča River by the cycle & pedestrian bridge. On the right bank of the river, you enter the Soča Fun Park and under the auspices of the instructors, you face a two-hour adventure among the treetops, overcoming the obstacles in the adventure park at a height of 2 to 10 meters above the ground. At last, you face the unforgettable »descent of courage« - you return to the left bank along a 300 meters long zip-line, 40 meters above the ground.

After the adventure, you cross the cycle & pedestrian bridge and head towards Mt. Sabotin by bike. The final destination of the route is an old military watchtower on Sabotin, where you have lunch. After lunch, the manager of the former watchtower of the Yugoslav People’s Army (JLA), shows you the museum collection Sabotin in World War I museum collection and memorial room Northern Primorska in 1991 Slovenian Independence War. He tells you many stories that take you back to the times of the World War I, on a journey along the Isonzo Front, as Sabotin was one of its key points. Thanks to its location near Gorizia, at the crossroads of the Vipava Valley, the Soča Valley and the well-known winegrowing region of Goriška brda, it was an important defensive point of the Austro-Hungarian Army. After the 6th Isonzo battle, Sabotin was taken over by the Italian Army. Soldiers from 22 different nations fought on its slopes. Today it is turned into a peace park, with the aim to remind visitors about the absurdity of wars and to encourage the harmony among nations. The entire hill is intertwined with an extensive system of caverns through which you walk from one side of the hill to the other. After visiting the caverns and hearing stories that shaped the history of this area, you head back to Solkan.
