ALPE ADRIA TRAIL
Walk in the garden of Eden
If you find great adventures fascinating, you must know that Valbruna and Tarvisio are part of the Alpe Adria Trail circuit, a cross-border project that connects the three regions, Carinthia, Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia Giulia. A long-distance itinerary that leads from the foot of Austria’s highest mountain, the Großglockner, to the shores of the Adriatic Sea, in Muggia. The route spreads over 43 stages of about 20 km each, with a walking time of about 6 hours through the most beautiful stretches of mountain and lake landscapes of Carinthia. It then crosses the Tarvisio directly near the Austrian, Slovenian and Italian borders and then continues to the sea.
A spiritual journey from the coast to the mountains of Friuli Venezia Giulia
The Aquileia route – Cammino Celeste is an international religious route that winds between Italy, Austria and Slovenia with the aim of bringing together the pilgrims of the different nations to a particular place of worship that is the Sanctuary of mount Lussari: a destination for pilgrimage and veneration of the image of the Virgin Mary for centuries. The pilgrims walk from their starting locations, along the three routes to Camporosso, to begin the climb that takes them to Mount Lussari, over 1760 metres above sea level.
The Italian part of the Cammino Celeste winds through ten stages. The starting point is in Aquileia. It then crosses Cormòns, Castelmonte, Cividale del Friuli, the Gran Monte and the valleys of Resia and Dogna up to the Sanctuary of Mount Lussari.
Romea Alemagna from Tarvisio to Cordovado (Pn)
Romea Strata follows the ancient system of routes that led from the North-East of Italy to Rome. The entire section covers five regions and is 1300 km long. The section that passes through Valcanale is called Romea Alemagna and from Tarvisio reaches Concordia Sagittaria (PN) after 187 km. It is a journey that touches different places and cultures, a dive into the past and a unique way to explore the territory of Friuli Venezia Giulia.
