The wonderful natural environment is perfectly suited to all visitors. There are many tended pathways along lakes and rivers, as well as tended access to waterfalls and gorges. Visitors can ramble through forests and gorges, or climb higher to mountain villages situated above the valleys; more demanding trekkers may set out on serious tours between mt. Krn and Črna prst.
All over the mountains are many huts providing refreshment and refuge in case of unfavourable weather.
The Slovenian Hiking Trail and Via Alpina are routed across the highest peaks and ridges of the Julian Alps at the northeast edge of the valley.

The European Footpath E7 crosses the valley crosswise from the river Nadiža to Baška grapa Valley.
The youngest of the longdistance trails is the Alpe Adria Trail, which connects Mt. Grossglockner with the Adriatic Sea through the valley and across the Brda region.
