I highly recommend doing this tour with Roundabout.

We had a stop at Koper on a long & enjoyable Oceania cruise from Barcelona to Venice. For the day in Koper, we were fortunate to book with Roundabout for a full day tour to Lake Bled, which was gorgeous, and to Ljubljana, which was amazing.

Emerald River Tour

Over highest Slovenian mountain pass Vrsic to mysterious Soca river

From Ljubljana pass Bled head on to the highest Slovenian mountain pass, Vrsic, with amazing views of the Julian Alps. Land in the beautiful Trenta valley and continue to Bovec, a melting pot of superb natural attractions. The village is famous for the emerald green Alpine Soca River scenery, and has grown into a highly appreciated Slovenian extreme sport center. You can either decide to test your adrenaline skills at the white water rafting session or head on to Kobarid for a visit of the WW1 museum in Kobarid.

The town of Kobarid played an important role during the WW1 period, that even the great Ernest Hemingway wrote about in his novel Farewell to Arms. Several sites on the way crossing the mountain pass Vrsic are marked by this important historical event, offering unique views of a ropeway conveyor, pitfalls, the Russian Chapel, the Kluže Fortress, various military via ferrata and many other unspoiled features of great natural and historical value.

One final stop at the Kozjak waterfall – one of the most picturesque and stunning waterfalls in Slovenia before heading back to Ljubljana.
