  • The Hidden Treasures of Tržič – Gutenberg Castle

    The Hidden Treasures of Tržič – Gutenberg Castle

    Tržič is one of those places that, on first glance, may not appear to have that many sights of interest. However, there is far more than initially meets the eye, both in terms of natural and cultural attractions. I’ve already blogged about many of them, and here’s another one to add to the list!

  • Hike and Dine on Dobrča!

    Hike and Dine on Dobrča!

    The ‘green’ and relatively dry winter continues (though as I write, snow is forecast this Wednesday – yikes!), so, even if the weather is slightly cloudy as it was for our hike, you can enjoy a great hike to Dobrča to enjoy the views, the spring (in winter!) flowers, and the great food at the mountain hut!

    Winter Hiking Above Tržič – Kriška gora and Tolsti vrh

    Okay, so I know the title of the blog is ‘Winter Hiking Above Tržič…’, but, as you will see from the pictures below, the weather – thank goodness! – is anything but wintry right now – and long may it continue I say!

  • Hike Tržič: Košutica (Ljubeljska Baba) – 2 Countries, 1 Great Hike!

    Hike Tržič: Košutica (Ljubeljska Baba) – 2 Countries, 1 Great Hike!

    Despite being here over 12 years, I still get a kick out of being able to cover two countries in one hike, and the hike from Podljubelj in Tržič to Košutica (also known locally as ‘Ljubeljska Baba’) – part of the Karavanke mountain range – is up there among my favourites, not least because it makes a fab circular hike!

    Taborniški dom na Šiji – Homely Hospitality and Hiking at the Scouts’ Hut on Šija

    Unlike the majority of Slovenia’s mountain huts, the Taborniški dom na Šiji mountain hut (translation: the Šija Scouts Hut) is privately run, and the difference is obvious from the moment you arrive.

  • The Born Trail from Ljubelj to Preval – Don’t Forget a Torch!

    The Born Trail from Ljubelj to Preval – Don’t Forget a Torch!

    The Born Trail (Bornova pot) leads from the top of the Ljubelj pass along an easy, scenic, though in places narrow, path, which includes a section through the Born tunnel. The trail leads mostly through forest (and the tunnel, of course!), so is ideal in summer when the sun is scorching as it remains pleasantly cool.

  • Discover Tržič and the Three Bells Trail

    Discover Tržič and the Three Bells Trail

    From time-to-time, when not dashing up and down hills and mountains, and especially at this time of year when many of the paths at higher altitudes are treacherous due to snow and, particularly, ice, I find that an easier, flatter walk such as the Three Bells Trail (in Slovene: Pot treh zvonov) is the perfect choice!

  • A World of Winter Sports in Tržič: Ljubelj and Zelenica

    A World of Winter Sports in Tržič: Ljubelj and Zelenica

    The for many (not me, I hasten to add!) long-awaited first significant snow of the year arrived last Friday and, following a cloudy day on Saturday, Sunday’s sunshine and gorgeous blue skies saw almost half, if not more, of Slovenia heading out to pursue their beloved winter sports!
