Špik mountain chain
The trail will lead us to an astonishing view where the Špik Mountain will appear in front of us. This beauty is definitely worth of another view. It’s narrow peak or sharpened head which it proudly displays from the northern side stirs the imagination of everyone who takes a look at its mighty image. We will climb an easy trail to the amazing viewing point to view the idyllic beauties in the surrounding area.
Zelenci National Reserve
We will continue the trip to the valley of the Sava with its waterfalls and lakes. We will go to the emerald and mysterious little lake Zelenci which is located immediately after the Podkoren village. The Sava Dolinka river spring is at Zelenci. You will be able to observe tiny bubbles rising from the ground in the crystal clear water. Many interesting plants, including the common sundew, found the home in this natural reserve. There are also many amphibians and nesting birds in the area. The layers of chalk give the lake its characteristic blue-green colour. It really is a feast for the eyes!
We will cross the Italian border and soon arrive at the vivid Rabelj Lake in the mountains. You can find your peace here and enjoy the beauties of nature. It was created in maritime depression and is of glacial origin. The legend says that it was supposedly created because the locals did not want to offer accommodation to a foreign woman with a small child. Only an old man had mercy for them. A mighty storm arose during the night and the water flooded the entire village. Only the old man’s cabin remained on a small island in the middle of the lake.
Great Soča gorge
Finally, it is time to visit the famous Soča River and experience the activities on or beside the water. The Soča River is one of the most beautiful European rivers and an important natural element of the Triglav National Park. It is famous for its distinct emerald colour and vivid rapids in its upper stream. It is 137 km long and its mysterious spring is in Trenta under the mighty Julian Alps. You will be able to choose between rafting on the Soča River or ziplining high above the Soča River valley which provides great views of the Soča River in the distance. Free time will be available for all who prefer to have their feet firmly on the ground.
In Soča valley- Bovec you can decide it for Rafting, Zip-line or for Canyoning.
Vršič mountain pass – Pegan girl
Full of adrenaline, we will continue towards the Vršič mountain pass. A scenic road leads there and Vršič is the starting point for hiking trips to Velika and Mala Mojstrovka, Prisojnik, Planja, and to many other mountains. We should mention Prisojnik, famous for its natural sight – the Pagan girl which you will easily notice from the road. The tectonic movement created the face of the girl. You might prefer the folk tale which says that the girl showed mercy and was kind-hearted.
She also made prophecies to the newborns. She foretold the little boy in Trenta that he will become a brave hunter and become very rich by hunting the white chamois. When her sisters learned about the prophecy they cursed her and she turned to stone. While crossing the Vršič Pass (1615 m), we will also pass the famous Russian chapel and enjoy the best possible view of the Julian Alps from the top of the pass.
A party and relaxation at Jasna Lake will be waiting for us at the end of our all-day tour. It has two connected artificial lakes at the confluence of Mala and Velika Pišnica creeks. You will be able to enjoy a 6-meter high viewing platform, take a relaxing walk around the lake, freshen up and swim in the lake, etc. In the end, you will gather the impressions of the beautiful day you spent with us.
