This Cheese Trail combines the interesting ethnological heritage of the area, visible especially in the architectural features and history. Mt. Matajur is a border mountain between Slovenia and Italy and offers beautiful views of the mountains of the Alpine rim to the north and of the Adriatic coast to the south. On the way up to the mountain, visitors are kindly invited to visit Livško, a unique micro-region in Soča Valley. Centred in the pass between Mt. Kolovrat and Mt. Matajur, it forms a natural connection between Soča Valley (SI) and Benecia (I). The Cheese Trail leads visitors to Idrska planina mountain pasture, where cows milk cheese and delicious sweet and salty ricotta are produced from early June to late September.
