Julian Alps – Tolmin, Slovenia

Highlight of the Course. Großvenediger and Großglockner Bonus Flight

Our final accord was played in Austrian Alps. That flight could be named as one of the best of the whole European summer flying season.

Course description

The Julian Alps offer some of the most spectacular landscapes in Europe, with rugged rock faces and idyllic river valleys. Located at the south east end of the Alpine crest the "Slovenian Dolomites" provide a cool variety of flying genres.

The majestic north faces of the Trigav Nationalpark mix well with a nice mediteranean flair of flying, once you are heading south to the Vipava Valley of Gorica and Ajdovscina. And in between lays the beautiful Soca Valley of Tolmin, and its two main takeoff locations, Kobala (SE, SW-W) and Stol (S-SW).

Even when not riding their "magic carpets" pilots will not feel like wasting their time here. Sports alternatives like rafting and kayaking, hiking or biking can help you make your day adventureous enough if wind & weather are not cooperating for once. This AdventureFlying course is best suitable for medium to well experienced XC pilots. More unexperienced XC pilots would always have to restrict their flight plans to rather local flights around the closer Tolmin area.
