Non-competitive hike in vineyards

 

Since Vipava Valley is known world wide as a prestique wine destination, we offer to everyone Hike and Wine non-competitive tour Obelix. In this tour you will do a beautiful circle among vineyards of Vipava Valley and do a wine degustation in some of the best win cellars that Vipava Valley has to offer. With that you will also try some of the local food specialities. 

The UTVV ultramarathon challenge is set in the valley where one of the most important battles of the late Roman period, The Battle of the Frigidus, also called the Battle of the Frigid River, took place in 394. The battle was fought between 5 and 6 September 394 between the army of the Eastern Emperor Theodosius I and the army of the Western Roman ruler Eugenius. With Theodosius’ victory, the Roman Empire was united under one emperor for the last time in history. Also, the victory of Theodosius brought the final religious dominance of Christianity in Europe.
