Soča Valley: the largest Hiking Festival in Slovenia (September and October)

Posted by Oficinas-Turismo on Saturday, September 24, 2016 (00:49:55)

In September and October, the most beautiful months for hiking, a Hiking Festival is organised annually in the Soča Valley. This is a time when many Slovenians and an increasing number of foreign visitors spend time together on organised hikes and hiking weekends along one of the most beautiful Alpine rivers in the world. A trail through paradise, which is full of pleasures and beautiful views, also runs through western Slovenia. This is the Alpe-Adria Trail, which connects Austria, Slovenia, and Italy, three different cultures and landscapes. On the Slovenian section of the trail and at the Festival, you will see some of the most beautiful corners of the Alps, the emerald River Soča that gave its name to this unique landscape, and you will taste dishes with a rich tradition.

When hiking trails show their autumn colours

The organisers of festivals in the Soča Valley are major ambassadors of safe hiking in hills and mountains, as they offer a number of lectures and expert meetings as a part of their accompanying programme. Organised hikes led by experienced guides are suitable for families and for mountain lovers with more advanced skills. The Hiking Festival in the Soča Valley that takes place from 16 September to 2 October is always fun and it allows you to experience the most authentic features that this valley has to offer. During the Festival, 28 different hikes and programmes will take place, and the organisers also prepare 12 hiking weekend programmes that are richly rewarding for hikers who wish to experience adventures in the fresh mountain air. All programmes focus on sport, history, or cuisine. Some are traditional, some are themed, some take you among the remains of the Isonzo (Soča) Front, and others run to the heart of the Triglav National Park and allow you to explore the lesser known corners of the valley of emerald beauty.



The Jestival Festival of flavours and art

The hiking festival in the Soča Valley also has a culinary aspect. On 1 October, the Jestival Festival of flavours and art will take place, and this year it will go back to its roots – to the most authentic flavours and customs in the Soča Valley. Traditionally, the main star is the Kobarid Štrukelj (dumpling stuffed with walnuts, raisins, and spices), though home-made marmalades from places near and far tend to steal its spotlight. Visitors can choose from a rich selection of flavours and products sold from stands. You can go to lectures and tastings, and you can rate food. The best restaurants and tourist farms in Kobarid participate, from Hiša Franko to the Kotlar Restaurant, the Topli Val Hotel, and others.



Heavenly places

The almost 700 kilometres long Alpe-Adria Trail runs through mostly non-Alpine areas and the elevation differences are not too great. It is comprised of 43 legs, each with a length of about 20 kilometres, which require about six hours of walking. Along the entire length of the trail, uniform signs are set up to guide hikers. The trail enters Slovenia through the Karavanke Alps, it runs past the Kranjska Gora mountain resort known globally for its Alpine skiing, it then goes across Vršič Pass, the highest Slovenian mountain pass, and continues along the valley of the emerald River Soča, following along the Isonzo (Soča) Front, where battles were fought in World War I. In the Brda Hills and in the Karst Region, the trail once again enters Slovenia from Italy. Excellent dishes can be tasted here, as these two destinations are famous for their world-class cuisine. The Brda Hills, as well as the Soča Valley, were granted the prestigious European Destination of Excellence label (EDEN), and it was their cuisine and gastronomy that were the reason for them winning the label.

Otra opción es llegar al aeropuerto de Zagreb, en Croacia, e ir desde allí a Ljbljana en autobús. Mensajes atrás puedes ver la ruta que yo hice en transporte público. Poder se puede, pero al final para ver determinados lugares vas a depender de una agencia de viajes, sobre todo si pretendes hacer un recorrido por los Alpes Julianos.

Saludos.

Muchas gracias, creo que lo mejor será en coche, sí, aunque entraré casi seguro por Venecia que me salen los vuelos más baratos. He preguntado en el foro de alquiler de coches en Eslovenia a ver cual es el mejor sitio para pillar el coche y compañías locales destacadas.

Hola!

Estoy empezando a informarme para organizar un viaje a Eslovenia en agosto con mis dos hij@s de (entonces) 2 y 4 años y quería pediros opinión (resalto las preguntas en negrita). He pensado en hacer el viaje en el sentido contrario a las agujas del reloj, porque empezar por Triglav, que intuyo que será lo más bonito del país, puede desmerecer lo que venga después, no os parece?

Me parece bien organizado. Eslovenia no decae, es un viaje que sorprende día a día.
Yo prefiero cambiar de alojamiento en este viaje, para aprovechar. Antes era muy reacia, pero cuando coges el mecanismo... Busca un punto desde el que de forma radial puedas hacer rutas varios días.
La triple frontera tampoco es imprescindible.

Al final estaremos en 5 alojamientos para 17 días: Pivka, Liubliana, Solcava, Zgornje Gorje y en Krotica. Así nos quedan las visitas a una media hora de trayecto para empezar la ruta cada mañana.

Gracias por la respuesta.
