Geopark Idrija covers the area of Municipality Idrija in the western part of Slovenia. The Geopark areas at a higher elevation offer splendid recreation possibilities. 

In the summer you can be one of many cyclists or hikers that explore the area and in the winter season you are welcome to run your skis on the slopes and the cross-country tracks in ski centres on the plateaus of Vojsko and Črni Vrh.

Morphologically the Geopark territory is extremely rich, with deep and narrow ravines and canyons as well as with extensive and high karst plateaus, all due to its Alpine-Dinaric Transition Zone. Geopark Idrija combines the preservation of geological heritage with advertising and marketing. It unites the wealth of the geological, natural and cultural heritage with the culinary offer, arts and crafts, tourist sights and other services that the area can offer its visitors.

Welcome to an area full of natural beauties within Geopark Idrija, a member of the European and the World Geopark Networks and also working within UNESCO since 2004. With this inscription the EGN experts acknowledged the international significance of the geological heritage of Idrija and its vicinity.
