Description

The Cerkno and Idrija hills are two picturesque alpine landscapes in Slovenia that even the best painter would struggle to recreate.

These gorgeous hills are separated by about 10km and are both about 30km west of the capital Ljubljana.

Idrija town was awarded alpine town of the year in 2011 and contains a UNESCO world heritage site in its old mercury mine.

The Cerkno hills are some of the most geologically diverse in Slovenia and reside on the border between the Alps and the Karst mountains.

Wild and lush forests cover more than three quarters of the land area and this is where an abundance of biodiversity can be found.

This stunning alpine region offers hiking trails all through the year and so much to see no matter when you visit.

Its a perfect terrain for skiing or snowshoeing in the winter with its deep powder snow. Whilst the various degrees of hillside slopes and ravines provide varying levels of difficulty for different abilities.

You will discover forests, rivers, lakes and more as you traverse the landscape. In the towns are many culinary delights and fascinating historical monuments that engage all the senses.

On this trip you have the options to hike up a number of hills including Porezen at 1630m, Kojca at 1303m and Bevkov Vrh at 1051m.

Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to explore the stunningly beautiful hillsides of Slovenia that provide endless picturesque views and points of interest, sign up now!
