- a guided hike up the slopes of Trnovo Plateau and farther along the edge of Gora
- a tour of Otlica natural Window and of cultural monument called Stone Spiral
- stunning views of Vipava Valley with Karst and Adriatic Sea and Julian Alps on the opposite sides
If you like filling your lungs with refreshing mountain air, you only need to hike an hour up to Trnovo Plateau and you’ll enjoy a stunning view of Vipava Valley and Karst beneath your feet with Adriatic Sea glimmering on the horizon. Once you reach the top, the trail along the edge will lead you through picturesque karstic meadows to Otlica natural Window, which is part of Slovenia’s natural heritage. This huge opening in the rockface, formed by erosion and corrosion, is a natural stone karstic bridge which reveals an incredible view of the valley below. The legend goes that this phenomena formed when the devil wanted to get a hold of Čaven, the mountain that he believed was filled with gold, but he fell and pierced the rockface with his horn, forming what is today Otlica natural Window.
The surroundings of nearby Otlica village hide another sight, which was built by human hands. A young local architect Damjan Popelar built a monument called »Stone Spiral«, which the locals nicknamed »Snail«, due to its shape which resembles snail’s shell. You’ll continue your trip along the Gora’s ridgeway, past the pastures and farms, through the unspoilt nature where the famous Bora wind is born. If you wish, we can stop at a well known tourist farm at Sinji Vrh, where you can try their incredibly tasty dried gamey meats and soured milk. The last part of the trail will lead you beneath the shadows of treetops back to Ajdovščina.
