TRAIN RIDE WITH A TRIP TO THE WINE-GROWING REGION OF GORIŠKA BRDA (with programme)
The steam train will start its journey from the railway station Jesenice at 8:50 and pass the Alpine jewels of Bled and Bohinjska Bistrica on its way towards the final destination in the town Kanal in the valley of the river Soča. The train continues its way to the final train station in Nova Gorica.
For railway enthusiasts this two-hours-long train ride along the Bohinj railway will undoubtedly be an unforgettable experience. The view of Lake Bled, crossing and passing numerous gorges, riding through many tunnels, the longest of which measures 6.327 m (3.93 miles), will absolutely not leave you indifferent. Make sure your cameras are at hand! On the train we will be accompanied by tour guides and staff who will provide a merry atmosphere and give information about the train, the Bohinj railway itself and the regions we will be driving through. There will also be a restaurant car where drinks and small snacks will be served.
At the railway station in Kanal we will get off the train and continue our way on buses – 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) lookout tower, where the whole region of Goriška Brda will be seen from. With some luck with the weather, the neighbouring regions of the Vipava valley, the plateau of Kras, Friuli in Italy, the Italian Dolomites and the Julian Alps will be clearly seen from there.
Afterwards our journey will continue past the medieval village of Šmartno into the centre of the region, Dobrovo. Because we will have been ‘on the road’ for quite a while by then it will be 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 and there you'll be able to buy yourselves some of the prominent 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.
