The Idrijca Canyon

The Idrijca Canyon from Ciril Mlinar on Vimeo.


 Just before the junction of the Idrijca and the Soča rivers, the Idrijca has created a beautiful canyon, over 30 meters deep. In winter when the temperature drops close to the freezing point large schools of barbus plebeius gather in the twilight of caves to pass the winter time there. During the making of the film the water temperature was 1oC and the water level was covered with ice.
