Discover Slovenia with On Foot Holidays Back to News

Tuesday 07th August | Posted by Simon Scutt

SloveniaTrieste

Green Europe at its most beguiling – the “Kras”, or Karst, in the west of this tiny country, is an area of woodlands, meadows and unspoilt villages with an ever-present backdrop of mountains. With On Foot Holidays’ self-guided walking holiday, you’ll also discover the tremendous variety of food and wine Slovenia has to offer, much of it home-grown by your hosts. And autumn is a wonderful time to walk through the vineyards, heavy with the scent and colours of the grapes, and busy with the harvest.

The area is home to some fine vineyards producing the unique Teran wine, a ferocious red to be drunk as accompaniment to the local prsut (prosciutto). After a first night in the pretty Slovenian capital Ljubljana, you stay in farms that produce their own wine, hams and honey, and grow all manner of fruit.

The culinary influences become more mediterranean as you travel westwards, ending your holiday in the lively Italian seaport of Trieste. Why not add extra nights here to explore the city, or to visit the original Lipizzaner stud or the extraordinary Skocjan cave system nearby?
