Still full of memories from our last – Sage hike, which happened only a week before, we again took a trip to Kras on Sunday 14th, 2019, but this time somewhat lower. We joined an organized Traditional hike along the abyss of river Reka, which this year was already 24th in a row.

The path took us to a small village named Matavun, if we are precise, to its beginning. The entire route of the hike runs along with the Regional Park Škocjan caves, which is very diverse. This hike was individual, so each hiker could start upon arrival. The start of the hike was foreseen between 8. and 12. a.m.. As there was not much space for parking at the beginning of the hike, the organizer redirected all the visitors to a parking lot in business zone Risnik, from where a small bus drove us to the starting point and at the end took us back from the village Matavun. A nice gesture from the organizer was that they did not forget about four-legged friends, who could join the ride on the bus.
Once again, the path took us to a small Karstic village near the Italian border, Vojščica. This time we joined an organized Sage hike 2019, which was already 13th in a row. Local Community Vojščica organized the first one far back in the year 2007, but three years ago, the organization of the hike was handed over to newly established Sport-Cultural-Tourist Society Farjovca, which takes care of the village development.

First, we must know from where did the name come from? Part of the route of the hike takes us along the slopes of Grmada, where on the rocky ridge of this elevation grows the plantations of sage. In a time of the hike, spring, sage is just in the initial stage of flowering and it smells incredible, which always takes over the hikers. And for sure it did, the sight on sage was just beautiful, and it was fulfilled with the unique view to the surroundings. At the same time, wild asparagus was seen through the whole route of the hike. As it grows high and mighty above the karst slopes. Many of the hikers were like small children running for their candy, to gather asparagus.
On Sunday, 18. November 2018, the road took us to the famous Vipava valley, to the village Ustje. We joined an organized hike along Vertovec trails, organized by Society Matija Vertovec. We gathered under the mighty Oak in front of village Ustje, where the morning welcome followed with hot coffee and tea. The hike is admission free.
