This three-hour-long train ride along the Bohinj railway will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience for any true rail enthusiast. The views of Lake Bled, passing through numerous gorges, crossing many tunnels, the longest of which measures 6,327 m (3.93 miles), never fail to impress. Make sure your cameras are at hand! On the train, we will be accompanied by tour guides and staff who will conjure up a merry atmosphere and provide information about the train, the Bohinj railway itself and the regions along the route. The train also has a restaurant carriage serving a selection of drinks and light snacks.

 

 

 

 

We will alight at the railway station in Kanal and continue the journey by bus – accompanied by tour guides, we will drive along the river Soča past the villages Anhovo and Plave to the wine-growing region at the Slovene-Italian border – Goriška Brda. In this picturesque area, we will enjoy the views of beautiful small villages, vineyards and fruit gardens. On our way to Dobrovo, the centre of Goriška Brda, we will make a short stop in the village Gonjače and climb up a 23 m (75.5 ft) observation tower offering panoramic views of the entire Goriška Brda region. If we are lucky and the weather is fine, one can see as far as the neighbouring regions of the Vipava valley, the Kras plateau,Friuli in Italy, as well as the Italian Dolomites and the Julian Alps. Afterwards, our journey will continue past the medieval village of Šmartno into the centre of the region, Dobrovo. And given that we will have been ‘on the road’ for quite a while by then, this will be the perfect time to stop for lunch, which will be served at one of the local restaurants. 

Before our return to the Soča valley, we will also visit the largest wine cellar in the region where you will be able to purchase some of the most exquisite wines of Goriška Brda. Returning to Nova Gorica, the centre of the western part of Slovenia, lying right at the Slovene-Italian border, we will board the steam train again and start our railway journey back towards the region of Gorenjska.

The organisers always do a great job in presenting the region’s folklore and traditions through various cultural and musical events. But the main reason to visit Brda at this time of year are naturally the famous cherries. We will have enough free time at Dobrovo to experience first hand the lively atmosphere, strolling among stands abounding not only in the ubiquitous cherries, but also other produce and artefacts made by the skilful and resourceful women of Brici/Brda. The bus will pick us up at 3:30 PM and take us to Nova Gorica to board the train bound for Gorenjska.
