Hiking in Slovenia and Friuli

A 9-day hiking holiday in Slovenia and north east Italy. A tiny country, Slovenia is sometimes referred to as The Sunny Side of the Alps. We stay beside beautiful Lake Bohinj from where we hike to the Julian Alps before continuing to Kobarid on the pretty Soca River. The town is known to the Italians as Caporetto and was of great historical importance in World War 1. Ernest Hemingway immortalised the town in his novel "A Farewell to Arms". Today Kobarid is often regarded as the culinary capital of the country and has several excellent restaurants. We cross the mountains into Italy to explore Friuli where we walk in the vineyards of Collio and visit the Unesco World Heritage town of Cividale.
