»There is an old famous film based in Wales called ‘How green is my valley’. Well if they think Wales is green you should see Soca Valley!!! Green is really the colour that explains everything about Soca Valley. The River Soca is emerald green. The whole area is ‘green’ in caring for the natural environment and is echoed by the preparation of the food through use of local suppliers. Also if you are brave, (our in my case foolish) there is a lot of adventure sports opportunities such as the one I tried para gliding and as it was pointed out to me when I landed that my face had turned to the colour of Soca Valley –very green! To sum up Soca Valley is perfect for incentive groups as it offers so much more than the stunning scenery, such as fly-fishing, cycling and walking and it is also quite inexpensive which is a big plus in these challenging economic times. This is a very special place and when your competitors hear that your group has been to Soca Valley and had a wonderful time they will be green with envy!!!«

»Soca Valley – what a travel jewel it is – fabulous destination for an Incentive trip – the Emerald river, the watersports, hiking and cycling and the history make this a must see location – a well kept secret. The gastronomic delights were also a winner. I also have every confidence the Tourist Board would ensure everything goes to plan.«
