Grahovo is a small, sleepy, rural village surrounded by mountains and forestry. It is unspoilt as it is slightly off the main tourist track but still allows you to access all the main tourist attractions and activities.
This area is steeped in history from the 1st and 2nd World Wars, there are many local walks where you can explore bunkers and visit monuments. You can visit Slovenia's widest tree in the nearby village of Rut.
As regards to things to do in the Baca and Soca Valleys, well, the list is long....paragliding, fly fishing (Slovenia is world famous for its paragliding and fly fishing) canoeing, white water rafting, mountain biking, trekking, hiking and hunting to name a few.
Tolmin, located in the Soca Valley, is the closest principal town and is a 16 kilometre drive from Grahovo. There you will find Supermarkets, Adventure Sports Centre, cinema etc. A trip to the nationís capital, Ljubijana, is a 70 kilometre drive away or, if you fancy a day trip to Lake Bohinj, you can drive there in approximately one hour. Alternatively, you can catch the car train from Podbrdo which cuts through the mountains and gets you to Bohinj in 7 minutes. Bled is a further 15 minutes drive from Bohinj.
However you choose to spend your time, you are guaranteed to enjoy the breathtaking scenery, flora and fauna of this beautiful area.
