ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

14th INTERNATIONAL WILDFLOWER FESTIVAL: 23 May – 7 June 2020

International Wild Flower Festival is definitely on! But due to the world-wide situation, we will move it mostly into the digital dimension. While we are still working on the programme, we are making sure, there will be something interesting for everybody.

We are sorry for not being able to share our beloved green and flowery oasis with you on-site as usual, but we hope this year’s virtual upgrade of the festival brings you some joy, serenity and new insights. And maybe also some inspiration for adding new ideas to your travel bucket list.

HIKING AND MOUNTAIN HUTS

  • We recommend visiting the mountains in small groups and following safety recommendations
  • We also ask visitors to go to the mountains with common sense and to adapt their hiking tours to their abilities and the equipment they have.
  • More information: Hiking in Bohinj, Mountaineering Association of Slovenia

Which mountain huts are open?

  • Mountain hut Komna
  • Mountain hut on Voje
  • Mountain lodge Savica
  • Mountain hut Orožnova koča: from Thursday afternoon to Sunday evening (from June 13 onwards all days of the week)
  • Mountain huts in the highlands remain closed for the time being, while lower-lying huts open their doors with the customised operation. More information: https://en.pzs.si/.

What safety recommendations should be followed:

  • In addition to other equipment, keep a protective mask and disinfectant in your backpack
  • Due to the declared epidemic, mountain rescue takes place in special conditions and, taking into account all protocols, the intervention time from the call of mountain rescuers to the arrival of the victim is significantly extended, even if the injured person is on a mountain trail.
  • All the injured must be treated as if they were infected with COVID-19, and under this assumption, the helicopter crew may refuse transport if rescue by helicopter is possible at all (weather, wind or mountain conditions).
  • Mountain trails can be damaged, as the activity of markacists (torn steel cables, damaged feet, damaged individual parts due to erosion activity and the consequences of winter …) has also stopped since the epidemic was declared.
  • Due to erosion (snow, cold, temperature fluctuations …), which is especially active in the spring, the possibility of falling rocks is increased, especially where the paths run under the walls.
