Fun & sports
The Stol mountain is a paradise for sports enthusiasts. The perfect thermals above the mountain slopes are excellent for paragliders. Mountain bikers can ascend the mountain from the village of Trnovo and travel along the ridge, past the mountain pasture Božca, and then ride down the undulating ridge to Breginjski Kot. Those keen on hiking can begin their ascent in Breginj and continue to Veliki Muzec, enjoy the evening panorama of the Friuli plains and spend the night in a bivouac. In the morning, they’ll be delighted by the scenes of untamed nature and its creatures. Mountain climbers will certainly enjoy braving the walls above the river Nadiža, below the church of Sveti Volar (St. Hilary). It’s only a half hour walk from the village Robic to the church; a great place for family trips, even with small children.
