The area of the upper Idrijca, from its source to the town of Idrijca (a distance of about 30 km), is part of the Krajinski Park Zgornja Idrijca ("Upper Idrijca Natural Park"). Here there are many karst features and an important diversity of plant species.
Geography[change | change source]
This river is one of the few places where the Marble trout (Salmo marmoratus) is found.
Course[change | change source]
From its source, the Idrijca flows to the southeast and then, after its confluence with the Beca river, turns to the northeast. Then, after passing through the town of Idrija, the river turns to the northwest and joins the Soča in Most na Soči, to the south of Tolmin.
Main tributaries[change | change source]
Most of the tributaries of the Idrijca river are small stream. The most important is the Bača with a length of 22 km (14 mi); it joins the Idrijca in the village of Bača pri Modreju, in the municipality of Tolmin.
