Izleti po Sloveniji: Izhodišče – Pokljuka

Kakšni lepi jesenski, sončni dnevi so za nami! Ste jih izkoristili za kak oddih v naravi? Midva sva jih – v četrtek sva se po službi podala proti Pokljuki, kjer sva imela rezervirano sobico na turistični kmetiji Ročnjek. Seveda sva si morala prej še kaj ogledati, ker pa časa pred nočjo ni bilo veliko, sva si izbrala najprej kratek izlet …

1. Slap Savica

Grem visoko pit Savico

lepih pesmi hladnih vir;

mojstru pevcev na zdravico,

naj mi tekne ta požir!

To je o prelepem slapu zapisal naš pesnik Valentin Vodnik. O slapu pa ni pisal le on, ampak tudi France Prešeren. Ko sva brala letak sva se spraševala kaj so naši pesniki videli v tem preprostem padcu vode s skal… In kmalu sva ugotovila kaj!

bty

Dostop do slapu je popolnoma nezahteven – markirano je 20 minut hoje, malo po gozdni poti, večinoma pa kar po stopnicah, ki so jih zgradili za lažji dostop turistom. Ker je Slap ena izmed velikih Slovenskih atrakcij, boste za vstopnino odšteli 3 € na osebo. Izlet je primeren za družinice z majhnimi otroki. Za več informacij klikni TUKAJ.

2. Kmetija Ročnjek, Pokljuka

Po izletu sva se že v mraku odpravila iskat najino hiško za naslednji dve nočitvi. Garmin naju je do tja pripeljal brez težav, pričakal pa naju je super prijazen gospod, ki nama je (po Slovenski tradiciji seveda :)) za dobrodošlico najprej ponudil domačo slivovo žganje. Sledilo je obvestilo, da so nama najcenejšo sobico zamenjali za apartma, ker se jim je ravno sprostil in so nama želeli ugoditi (ni slabo imeti svoje male kuhinje, kjer si lahko pripraviš topel obrok, ne? :)) Naj omenim, da imajo super savno, prelepo okolico, dostopne cene in zelo prijazna lastnika.  Za več informacij klikni TUKAJ.

3. Blejska koča (planina Lipce) in Debela peč (2000 m.n.v)

Naslednje jutro sva se podala na najlažje dostopnega dvatisočaka v Julijcih – Debelo peč. Na poti sva srečala mlade družinice, z malčki v nahrbtnikih in pohodnimi palicami v rokah. Bravo vsem takim staršem! Vrh pa je res lahko dosegljiv, brez zajl, klinov in ostalih značilnosti dvatisočakov (na mojo veliko žalost, ker pač obožujem plezanje :)). Razgledi pa so vseeno čudoviti. Kredarica se ti postavi pred nos, za njo pa se bohoti Triglav v vseh svoji veličini.

IMG_0053_fhdrIMG_0038hdrIMG_0036_fhdrIMG_0035_fhdrIMG_0030_fhdrIMG_0021hdr

Na vrhu sva imela točno 2 minuti sonca, potem pa se je od nikoder prikradla megla in temperatura se je drastično znižala. Nič hujšega, poiskala sva svoja rezervna oblačila in se podala nazaj v dolino. 🙂 Pot vodi skozi čudovite iglaste gozdove. V tem času so še posebaj privlačni, ker macesnu počasi odpadajo iglice in se vsa ta drevesa v temno-zelenem gozdu oranžno bleščijo. Obožujem vonj po gozdu, smoli, svežem zraku in hladnemu gorskemu vetriču! Na poti sva se ustavila še na Blejski koči, na planini Lipce. V koči se lahko okrepčate ob pogledu na malo jezerce v obliki srca – da so hribi še bolj pocukrano romantični. 😉

4. Korita Mostnice, slap Mostnice in planina Voje

Naslednje jutro sva se podala na kratek izlet – Korita Mostnice – zopet primeren za družine z majhnimi otroki.  Na začetku so vidna korita, tolmunčki in majhni slapovi rečice, potem pa se pot rahlo vzpne v gozd proti planini Voje, ki se zaključi pri slapu Mostnice. Pot se začne v vasi Stara Fužina, dolga je 6 kilometrov in je markirana za 2 uri hoje v eno smer. Govorimo o počaaaaasni hoji, midva sva bila tja in nazaj v 2 urah in 20-ih minutah. Meni najbolj fascinantna je bila nora, turkizna barva vode in čudoviti naravni tolmunčki, slapovi in veliki balvani, ki so ostali od potujočega ledenika, ki je izoblikoval celotno dolino.

5. Bohinj

Na poti domov sva se ustavila še pri čudovitem jezeru Bohinj, kjer sva naredila le par fotografij in se umaknila trumi turistov. 🙂

6. Bled

Na Bled se tokrat ravno zaradi turistov nisva odpravila, prilagava pa dve fotografiji z lanskega zimskega obiska našega “bisera” med gorami. 🙂

IMG_20170121_145535_fhdrIMG_20170121_151119_fhdr

Pokljuka ima ogromno pešpoti in je hkrati prelepo izhodišče za vse hribolazce, manj in bolj pripravljene. Trije dnevi so bili premalo, da bi poiskala vse kotičke vredne ogleda, deliva pa tiste najine, ki sva jih uspela obiskati. Toplo priporočava! 🙂

Izleti po Sloveniji

Živjo! Zadnje dni je bilo časa premalo, da bi svoje dogodivščine delila z vami na blogu, zato sva se odločila, da zadnjih nekaj združiva v enem postu. Glede na to, da se bližajo prazniki in bo časa malo več, morda kdo od vas najde kakšno luštno idejo za potepanje po lepi naši … 🙂

1. Ferata  Hvadnik – lahka plezalna pot

Pot se nahaja v Kranjski Gori, natančneje v Gozdu Martuljku. Primerna je tako za mlajše  kot tudi za starejše plezalce. Seveda boste potrebovali plezalni pas, čelado in samovarovalni komplet. Če ste bolj amaterske vrste, kot midva, in svoje opreme še nimate, si jo lahko sposodite v Planinskem muzeju Slovenije (KLIK). Izposoja ni draga, so pa super prijazni! 🙂 Ko sva se primerno opremila za varno pohajkovanje, sva se podala na pot. Pot je primerno označena, le na začetku sva se malo lovila – za začetek prečkate potok Hvadnik in se po levi strani podate navzgor, kjer vas kmalu pričakajo zajle, klini in čudoviti razgledi. Več o ferati najdete na: KLIK

2. Dovžanova soteska

Izlet je primeren za hiter družinski skok v naravo, midva sva si privoščila sproščanje na lepo sredino popoldne. Pot se začne na parkirišču v vasi Čadovlje pri Tržiču. Soteska je zanimiva zato, ker je bilo nekdaj tu tropsko morje in v njej lahko najdete ostanke fosilov. Ker je tako stara, je narava še veličastnejša. Na voljo imate kar nekaj učnih poti, več si lahko preberete na: KLIK

3. Rakov škocjan

Zopet ena lepših slovenskih sotesk z rečico Rak. Soteska je nastala z udiranjem kraške jame, zato so vidni čudoviti mostovi in razgledi, ki vzamejo dih. Park je pod UNESCOvo zaščito, več o poteh pa si lahko preberete tu: KLIK Ob najinem obisku je bilo območje poplavljeno zaradi velike obilice dežja, ki se je na močvirnatih tleh seveda dobro obdržalo. Je pa zato nastalo nekaj lepih fotografij.

IMG_0027_hdr

IMG_0053_fhdr

V bližini si lahko ogledate še Cerkniško jezero, kjer je možna izposoja kanujev.

IMG_0063_hdr

Imela pa sva tudi priložnost videti poplavljeno Planinsko polje, ki je imelo prav tako poseben čar.

4. Lovrenška jezera

Še en izlet, odličen za družine. Pot se začne na Rogli in ni daljša od ure in pol v eno smer. Teren je raven, vzpne se zelo malo. Natančno izhodišče in opis jezerc najdete tukaj: KLIK Fotografije pa naj povedo kaj več o razgledih. 🙂

5. Potočka zijalka in Olševa

Malo daljša pot od prejšnih, ki se začne v majhni vasici Sveti duh pod Olševo. Pot vas vodi do Potočke zijalke, ki se jo verjetno vsi spomnite iz osnovne šole – verjetno bi jo hitro našli v testu za zgodovino. Če potrebujete osvežitev spomina, prilagam link: KLIK

Pot lahko nadaljujete proti gori Olševi. Hodi se po grebenih, tako da se ves čas odpirajo čudoviti razgledi proti dolini.

6. Srčkasta cesta v vinogradih

In za konec – še malo romantike. Srčkasto cesto najdete na turistični kmetiji Dreisibner. Do nje se zapeljete z avtomobilom, hoja ni potrebna, tako da s seboj lahko vzamete prav vse družinske člane – babice, dedke in svoje najmlajše. Več o lokaciji in ponudbi najdete TUKAJ.bty

Pripis: Vse najine poti nama popestri tudi Geocaching ali po naše:  iskanje malih zakladkov. Če imate otroke ali otrok živi v vas, tudi to toplo priporočava. 🙂

Short hike in Slovenia – Sv. Jošt nad Kranjem 

We have a lot of small hills in Slovenia, just right for the afternoon hike – around hour or so. I had already written about “Sv. Primoz nad Kamnikom” and “Stari grad nad Kamnikom,” and now I am adding some photos of “Jošt nad Kranjem”.

The hill is 847 m high, on the top you can find a church build in baroque style. We started walking in a village called “Pševo.”  The path to the top is called “Sodarjeva pot/path.” 

The trip is appropriate for families and small kids too. Very nice path and wievs!  

Hiking – Raduha (2064 m – Slovenia)

Since I am so busy these days, Saturday was the best – hiking a mountain Raduha, spending all day in nature. The path is great, you can choose from “difficult path” or “very difficult path”. We went up trough very difficult and down trough difficult. The view was awesome!

On the way up…

The peak itself 🙂

IMG_20170527_121342_fhdrIMG_20170527_115759_fhdrIMG_20170527_122101_fhdrIMG_20170527_120137_fhdr

Lanež

This is the mountain half an hour away from Raduha -it has a small edition of “Aljažev stolp” on it. You can find the real “Aljažev stolp” on Triglav – Slovenian highest mountain. 🙂

IMG_20170527_134758IMG_20170527_132833_fhdrIMG_20170527_121313

Grohat

On the way down,  we stopped at mountain meadow “Grohat” for some food and the great view of the mountain we just have been on. The staff is very friendly, kind and talkative. The food is amazing and not expensive at all! We drank Radler & apple juice and we ate 2 dishes “Ajdovi žganci” & “ješprenj” and we only paid 12 €! 🙂

IMG_20170527_145918IMG_20170527_144630_fhdr

This was amazing day, I recommend this hike to all mountain lovers out there. 😉

Short hike in my hometown (Slovenia)

It is great “the end of work day” hike – it’s short, sweet and not too hard. 😉 It starts in Kamnik – with the view of “Mali grad” or in English: Small castle. 🙂
IMG_20170506_173558

The path is nice, with a litlle bit of magic aside:

First stop can be “Stari grad” or in English. “Old castle.” There are remains of an old castle and you can order a drink too.

15  minutes more of brisk walk and you can see the whole city of Kamnik from “Špica”. 🙂

IMG_20170506_165748IMG_20170506_163417

I hope you find the time today for a hike, exploring something new or just have fun in any way you like. Nice weekend y’all! 😉

Malta in May – day 6 (Marsaxlokk)

Almost the last day of our holidays – we went in a small town with famous Maltese boats – Luzus. 🙂

Than we went on a short hike to Saint Paul’s pool. Full of jellyfishes & we met that dog and his owner there when he told us they are famous! 🙂 We met Titti – the diving dog. Video below. 😉

2017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_513

Here is the video of our new friend – they didn’t jump that day because of the jellyfishes 🙂 But still – it was nice to meet them. 🙂

Malta in May – day 5 (Gozo)

We talked about Malta and Comino and on day 5 we visited the third island – Gozo! 🙂

You get on ferry from Il Ćirkewa and the ticket cost 4, 65 € both was – there are some differences if you travel at night-time, if you have a car/a bike … The problem is that all the buses on Gozo drives once an hour and it all takes you back to its capital – Rabat/Victoria, where you can catch another. Again – we walked a lot! 🙂

Here are some highlights of our trip:

mushroom island

This is all in Dwejra bay. 🙂 From there we went to Ramla bay – one of island most favourite beaches with red/oker sand.

2017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_452_fhdr2017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_4562017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_457

And from there we went for a really long hike – WARNING – paths are misleading. It looks like there is a path even application “Maps.me” (it’s navigation where you don’t need internet connection – great app for all the travellers!) says so. You can walk up to several kilometers when the path ends or it is full of rocks, thorns and other difficulties. But it was a great adventure! 😀

Malta in May – day 4 (Comino)

There are 3 different islands in “Malta”: Malta, Gozo and Comino – the last one is the smallest with only a few residents. It has an amazing beach called Blue lagoon and some amazing cliffs. We went for a hike around the island (3 hours) and here are the photos. 🙂

2017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_408

2017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_331_fhdr

Blue lagoon ❤

You can get to the island with small boats – we gave 10 € per person (both ways). 🙂

Cliffs, caves, beaches … 🙂

Land…

& some facts … 🙂

Comino

Situated between Malta and Gozo, the smaller island of Comino is a paradise for snorkelers, divers, windsurfers and ramblers.

Only 3.5 square kilometers, Comino is car-free and apart from one hotel, is virtually uninhabited.

The island’s main attraction is the Blue Lagoon. In summer, this sheltered inlet of shimmering aquamarine water over white sand is very popular with day-trippers. Other beaches on the island include Santa Marija Bay and San Niklaw Bay.

Comino is also worth a visit in winter, and is ideal for walkers and photographers. With no urban areas or cars on the island, one can easily smell the scent of wild thyme and other herbs.

Comino was inhabited in the Roman period, but did not have much significance until the Knights arrived. It then had a dual role: hunting grounds and a staging post in the defence of the Maltese Islands against the Ottoman Turks.

The island had proved a useful base for pirates operating in the central Mediterranean and, though stark and barren today, it was home to wild boar and hares when the Knights arrived in 1530. The Grandmasters went to great lengths to ensure that their game on Comino was protected: anyone found breaking the embargo on hunting could expect to serve three years rowing on a galley.

After WWII, Comino remained a backwater until its fortunes revived with tourism in the mid-1960s.

Where to Stay

Comino has one resort hotel, which is ideal for those looking for a tranquil getaway.

Malta in May – day 3 (Valetta, Blue Grotto …)

1. Valetta

The third day we spontaneously end up in Valetta in the morning. 🙂 Cute city at the seaside – it is totally different from our capital city in Slovenia.

 

2. Blue Grotto

10 € for a beautiful boat ride. It lasted around 20 minutes and we went into some caves – Blue grotto is the one with amazingly blue coloured water. They believed that the caves are homes for some mermaids. 🙂 We didn’t see any, but the water and light are really playing some magical games with each other. 🙂

3. Anchor bay with Popeye village

2017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_3182017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_3192017-Malta_fotoTomazSinigajda_320_fhdr

We didn’t enter the village because there was a lot of people, so we decided to take a hike from anchor bay to Golden bay. 🙂 We walked for two hours and the views were amazing.

 4. Hike from Anchor bay to Golden bay

Hiking: Pristovški Storžič / Kaerntner Storschitz – Austria

Today, we went for another hike. 🙂 The path starts just a minute away from Slovenian – Austria border (crossing Jezersko).

The path is really beautiful. I would say it has 3 parts – the first one is calm, not very steep. The path is leading true the forest, with the great smell, the birds singing and so on. 🙂 The second part is the part with a constant great view, because you’re walking on the edge of the forest – so there are breathtaking mountains all around you and the sun was shining all the way.

Than, it comes my favourite – third part with rocks, steep terrain and wire rope to hold on. This part is short, just for the taste of a real mountain, so it’s really not hard to get to the top. And then? The view is amazing, the sun was warm and our souls in peace. ❤ Lovely!

We went down on the other side of the mountain – this path was still very snowy at the top so we were laughing and smiling all the way down because there was always someone on their ass, there was funny noises and screams when your leg just fell into the deep snow … But it wasn’t dangerous because it’s not so stiff and there are no cliffs around. The path is longer than the first one so we were hungry and thirsty in the end. We went for lunch across the border to Slovenia … more in next post. 🙂
