Hiking in the Draga Valley

The Draga Valley

Besides the Draga stream a green valley winds it way to the foothills of the Karavanke.

Cattle graze in the Draga valley during summer, when the valley offers shelter from the summer heat; throughout the year it is a starting point for hiking to mountain pastures and the peaks of Mt. Begunjščica.

 

At the entrance to the valley you are greeted by Kamen Castle on a rocky slope, which once protected the old cargo trail across the Preval mountain pasture. The Gostišče Draga restaurant is located in the valley, and beside it a parkour archery course that offers a special experience in the shelter of the forest, and is suitable for both beginners and experienced archers.

 

The Lambergh Trail runs through the valley.

Adele's choise of top winter hikes around Radovljica

Written by Adele Gray, january 2018

 

Though, in truth, I will never be a lover of winter and snow, since moving to Slovenia in 2007 I have learnt that in winter in the area where I live – Radovljica, in the northwest i.e. the alpine area - snow is a fact of life and, to some extent, have learnt to embrace it!
