A cure-all for the soul 

A winter walk in the epic places of mountaineering and the front of the First World War. Along the route, you will find yourself in silent woods, under the harsh peaks of the Julian Alps and at the same time close to the huts and farmhouses of the valley, where you can stop for a break and taste local gastronomic specialities.
