Idrija countryside

From all sides, Idrija is surrounded by magnificent landscape strewn with steep hills and open plateaus. In the Geopark Idrija, numerous theme hiking and cycling trails lead along the varied terrain and invite to fishing, winter sports, and an active exploration of the rich cultural and natural heritage of the Zgornja Idrijca Landscape Park, as well as the Črni Vrh, Vojsko and Ledine plateaus. On mountain pastures, the conditions led to the development of livestock farming and producing quality cheeses and other milk products. Extensive pastures and intact forests host herbalists and beekeepers; in the Idrija region, the latter have been known to make exceptional honey and apiculture products for several centuries. The tourist offer in the countryside will make sure that your trip will not be lacking tasty local refreshments.
