Trekking Isonzo-Velebit Through Wild Dinaric Forests

Gorizia
The Soča-Velebit trek is the second stage of the route - inaugurated last autumn with the Trnovski Gozd trek - that will take us on a discovery of the Dinaric forests. We will walk for three days on a loop trail between the Selva di Piro and the magical Nanos plateau. The peculiarities of the area are many: we will try to unveil its geological, botanical and faunal notes together with guides Marco Pascolino and Matteo Skodler. Starting from the wide Nanoščica valley and Predjama Castle, we will cross the Hrušica - the ancient Piro Forest - and the silent Nanos forests, coming out onto the vast meadows lashed by the Bora wind and cloaked in unforgettable blossoms. How many things will we see and hear in those days? We will discover this together as we experience the miles and miles of walking up and down the Nanos!

Route information

DIFFICULTY: MEDIUM-DIFFICULT TREK. Forest tracks, local paths and the Planinska zveza Slovenije (the Slovenian 'CAI'). No exposed sections. Good training on long-distance and medium-mountain routes required. Don't be alarmed by the uphill gradients: we will be walking mostly on medium to low gradient sections, so the height difference will be absorbed by the length of the route.

Meeting

In GORIZIA - 7 a.m. This is followed by carpooling and transfer to the starting and finishing point of the walking route (approx. 1 hour drive).

Necessary equipment

MANDATORY hiking boots and poles, onion and rain gear. FOR NIGHTS AT THE REFUGE: Warm, comfortable change of clothes for evenings and nights. Slippers. Small towel and personal hygiene necessities (e.g. wet wipes). Head torch. Valid identity card or passport. (IMPORTANT: a driving licence is NOT recognised abroad as an identity document!) The shelters are provided with blankets and pillows, a sleeping bag is not necessary. Sheet bag for hygienic reasons at personal discretion.

Accommodation and refreshments

Half-board in two huts. NB: Lunches for the trekking days will be packed (typically sandwiches prepared by the hut before leaving) and in a hut. Everyone is free to organise themselves differently (canned food, other). For overnight stays, the huts are small, cosy but spartan: we will sleep in dormitories, or in shared rooms with fellow walkers or other hut guests.

THE FEE INCLUDES:

2 nights with half board in 2 mountain huts
accompaniment with 2 insured Environmental Hiking Guides for 3 days
medical and luggage insurance
file opening and travel agency technical management costs

THE FEE DOESN'T INCLUDES:

packed lunch on the first day (provided by the individual) and the 2 lunches for the trekking days
drinks during meals or other extras (unless expressly indicated by the hut manager)

PROGRAMME:

Day 1 | Predjama, Hrušica and Javornik

We will make our way through the Nanoščica countryside to Predjama, the village of the famous castle embedded in the rock. From here we will begin the ascent into Hrušica, the Piro Forest, already known in Roman times, of which we will see important traces of their frequentation of this remote area.
Still through forests, we reach the summit of Javornik (1240 m), the goal of our first day.

Total altitude difference: ascent approx. 900 m / descent 300 m - Length: 19 km

Packed lunch.

Day 2 | In the heart of the Nanos Plateau

The second stage will take us to explore the heart of Nanos among forests, sinkholes and mysterious karst ravines.
Some detours will be possible on this day to conduct very special wildlife or geological observations!

We then leave the forest environment to reach the scenic south-western ridge of the plateau, where we will spend the night.

Indicative height difference: ascent 650 m, descent 1000 m - Indicative length: 25 km - (Today's programme may be shortened in the event of unfavourable weather conditions)

Packed lunch.

Day 3 | The meadows of Sv. Hieronim and the Pleša peak

The last day is dedicated to the Pleša summit meadows, which are buffeted by the Bora wind for long periods of the year. We will enjoy the most beautiful time of year for botanical encounters of all kinds: the Nanos blossoms are indescribable!
Reaching the summit (1262 m), after a well-deserved refreshment at the refuge, we begin the slow descent that will take us back to the valley, not without other surprising points of interest.

Tears of joy and closing greetings.

Total altitude difference: ascent 550 m - descent 800 m. Length: 14 km

Lunch at the refuge.
