Active weekend in Idrija region
The Idrija hills are part of the very rugged, quite steep mid-elevation areas, which rise up to 1,000m on average. Valleys and narrow gorges with crystalline waters nestle among hills and ridges; in between, there are karst plateaus. More than three quarters of the land is covered with forests, home to many different plant and animal species. Mountain tops afford breathtaking views of Alpine peaks to the north and the azure Adriatic Sea to the south. There are many marked hiking trails suitable for walking year-round.
