On the first day after picking up TripMates in either Villach or Gemona we will go to Laghi di Fusine (Fusine Lakes) are two lakes of glacial origin in the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, very close to the borders of Austria and Slovenia. The Fusine Lakes are also known by their German name, Weissenfelser Seen, and their Slovenian name, Belopeska Jezera.
Jôf di Montasio
The Jôf di Montasio is located in the Province of Udine, in the Friuli-Venezia Giulia region of northeastern Italy. With its elevation of 2,752 meters, it is the second-highest mountain of the Julian Alps, surpassed only by Triglav. The Julian Alps are part of the Southern Limestone Alps System. Hiking this mountain is rather harsh and in summer there are lots of wildflowers that always distract my focus. I am not an advanced hiker, but if you are - you can hike, and I will wait for you at the bottom while enjoying the view and do a small picnic.
Lago del Predil
The water of the Predil lake is clear and transparent, of a green-blue color, but it is very cold, a fact that does not prevent the intrepid from taking a nice dip. In the middle of its waters, a characteristic islet emerges, which paints an enchanted landscape.
We will start our day early, eat breakfast and go hike in Dimon Lake. A lake above the mountain along the hike you will encounter rare species of flora such as the alpine pasqueflower. This hike is suitable for beginner - Intermediate, Duration: approx 4 hours (go up and down).
San Daniele del Friuli
San Daniele is the perfect weekend destination for lovers of prosciutto, history, culture, and Italian scenery. If you are into exploring local food then this place is just for you, the ham/prosciutto is famous around the world. I do not eat red meat, but I would love to show you around :D// if you do not into this, feel free to let me know, and we will pass it and change the itinerary.
Goriuda waterfall, A flow of icy water from the upper grotto leaps over the valley, then plunge into the crystal-clear pool of water at the base of the cascade, in the steamy atmosphere of a lush beech forest.
Monte Lussari and IF there is enough time we can also Orrido dello slizza path. Monte Lussari: A cute little village on top of the mountain at a peak overlooking the land where the Carnic and Julian Alps come together, from a position of privilege that positions it as the guardian of these borderlands. Orrido dello slizza: Striking natural area with a boardwalk through a rugged canyon for views over a clear-water stream. Around 6-7 PM drop back to Villach or Gemona.
