Advent Pur
Event details

Advent Pur

An evocative lantern-lit path winds through the woods of the village of Valbruna. A walk immersed in the typical Christmas atmosphere of Valbruna, framed by the snow-capped peaks of the Julian Alps and the wooden works by local artists.
Along the route there are stoves where one can stop and sip a warm tea, handcrafted cribs, a small stable with cute animals and characteristic stavoli (shelters) where fairy tales and ancient legends are told to children, while traditional music is sung and played around the fire.
A return to the Christmas of yesteryear and its magical period of preparation: Advent. A time of waiting to be experienced in an intimate way, appreciating the simplicity of what nature has to offer, walking on snow crunching underfoot in the silence that pervades the forest and the cold air that stings the face.
It is a time to become a little child again, with eyes and heart, and experience the enchantment of this extraordinary waiting period leading up to Christmas.
