Matajur is a 1642 meter high mountain in the Julian Alps. It is located between the Slovenian Soča valley and the Italian mountainous region Veneto.

There is a 35 minutes drive with our van from Bovec to the village of Livek (half way up to the top of Matajur). Here we start the 2 hours climb up towards the mountain hut on Matajur (1.545 m). When on top there is an epic 12 kilometer long single trail downhill. We end up in the Italian village San Pietro al Natisone where we stop and enjoy some homemade ice cream from the local “gelateria” and wait for our transfer back to Bovec while drinking the best Italian cappuccino.
