  • The Šlibar Organic Farm – A Real(ly) Rural Retreat

    The Šlibar Organic Farm – A Real(ly) Rural Retreat

    Isn’t is just great when you go somewhere not expecting much, only to find it’s so much more than you imagined? That was exactly the case when I recently visited the Šlibar organic farm in Kovor, near Tržič.

  • Jelendol and the Stegovnik Waterfall

    Jelendol and the Stegovnik Waterfall

    Jelendol is a small village located at the far end of the Dovžan gorge in Tržič. Although it takes a bit of an effort to reach the village, and even more so to reach the Stegovnik waterfall, you will be rewarded by seeing this unique village and impressive waterfall away from the madding crowd! It is also the start point for numerous hikes in the Karavanke mountains – with so much choice, it’s hard to know which way to turn!

    Escape the Heat and Have an Adventure in the Dovžan Gorge!

    Following devastating floods in autumn 2018, when the Tržiška Bistrica river flooded its banks following a heavy storm lasting several hours, during which much of the Dovžan gorge (Dovžanova soteska) was destroyed and the residents of its hamlets were left cut-off, extensive renovation work has now been completed and the gorge is now looking better than ever.

  • 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!
