Those who seek genuine contact with winter nature can go ski touring and make their way through the untouched snow on the hills and mountains of Pokljuka, Vršič, above Lake Bohinj and the peaks of the neighbouring Karavanke mountain range. With snowshoes or winter hiking boots, you can experience the magic of winter in the Tamar Valley or feel winter serenity in Trenta. The Peričnik Waterfall on the way to the Vrata Valley turns into an ice kingdom when temperatures are low enough. When returning to Mojstrana, you should also stop off at the Slovenian Alpine Museum.
Ice climbers will find challenges in the icy walls of the Mlačca Gorge, Martuljški Slapovi, Log pod Mangartom, Trenta and below the mountains of Krn. You can also try ice skating on outdoor skating rinks, like the one with a view of Lake Bled, and the ice rinks in Radovljica, Podmežakla Sports Hall in Jesenice or the Ice Hall in Bled.
Or perhaps you can observe the winter idyll from afar. Venture out on a tour of Brda. There, you can enjoy biking and hiking adventures all year round, or upgrade them by visiting picturesque Brda villages and by tasting the best Brda cuisine and wines.
After discovering the winter fairy tale, enjoy typical delicacies of the Julian Alps. Try the indigenous dishes and products like cheese with the protected origin label, “štruklji” and “krapi”, honey and exquisite meat delicacies. Gourmets can enjoy traditional flavours intertwined with the modern approaches of premium chefs like Ana Roš and Uroš Štefelin. Their restaurants have been awarded Michelin stars – Ana’s Hiša Franko with two and Uroš’s Vila Podvin with one star.
