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.

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 🙂

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. 🙂

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 €! 🙂

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”. 🙂

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 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.

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! 😀

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. 🙂

Mount St. Ursula (Slovenia) – Uršlja gora

2017-04-01-UrsljaGora_fotoSiNi_012_fhdr

Yesterday morning we went for a hike, here in Slovenia. 🙂 Mount St. Ursula or in Slovene: Uršlja gora.  The mountain is 1699 meters high and there are several paths that leads to the top, to the gothic church called St. Ursula (the highest laying curch in Slovenia).  The mountain lies between the towns of Slovenj Gradec and Črna na Koroškem.

The trail is not hard to walk – you have harder and easier ones. We went up from “Naravske ledine” this time and it is an hour and a half to the top if you walk slowly. We were on top in 55 minutes. 🙂

The view is amazing, the weather was fantastic and the smell of spring in the air! I love hikers, they are all so friendly, optimistic, nice and they always wear a smile! 😉

Winter fairytale: The Logar valley (Slovenia)

Last weekend we headed to Logar valley and we fell into a true winter fairytale. On the way, we had this amazing view on church of Saint Ahacij (village called Kališe).2017-roadtriplogarska_fototomazsinigajda_001hdrSnow was fresh and the hour was quite early. It was so peaceful, calm and beautiful. We stopped there to make a photo and continued our journey. You can read more about our final destination (The Logar valley) here: CLICK: The Logar valley official website. When we arrived the valley looked like this:

Here is the morning photo:2017-roadtriplogarska_fototomazsinigajda_032_fhdr

This mountains are part of Kamnik-Savinja Alps. This “U” formation on the right side of the photo is “Kamniško sedlo” and on the left you can see mountain “Planjava.”

Our first trip was to Rinka waterfall. The road was snowy and quiet and the sun was shining – perfect winter day. We haven’t met a lot of hikers there, just a few. The path is easy and simple. It is suitable for kids and families too. Photos from the path:

At the end of the road there was a magnificent view. The waterfall is partly frozen (it looks like a big throne :)). In summer there is a lot of water walling down, but now there was this tiny little waterfall over a massive ice formation.

The next day we wanted to visit another great destination “Potočka Zijavka”. This is a cave where some archeological artefacts were found (bones of a cave bear, remains of caveman life and rituals …) We started walking, but the snow was too high for hiking, there was no path, just deep layer of snow.  Besides, we saw some bear footprints in the snow! 🙂

So we have just a photo of a starting point – church Saint Spirit (Sv. Duh) in a village called “Podolševa”.2017-roadtriplogarska_fototomazsinigajda_037_fhdr

We wandered around a bit and had a great dinner at “Kmečka hiša Ojstrica” – CLICK. We ended a great exploring day  here in a cosy place with some great food and homemade herbal tea near a warm fireplace. Loved it!img_20170225_185025
