Where Do our Walking Holidays in Slovenia Take Place?
The Julian Alps
Most of our Slovenia walking holidays take place in the Slovenian Alps. The Julian Alps (Slovene: Julijske Alpe, Italian: Alpi Giulie) is a mountain range of the Southern Limestone Alps that stretch from northeastern Italy to Slovenia. They are named after Julius Caesar, who founded the municipium of Cividale del Friuli at the foot of the mountains.
A large part of the Julian Alps is included in Triglav National Park. Triglav (2,864 m) is the highest mountain and the coat of arms of Slovenia. The second highest peak in the range, the 2,775 m Jôf di Montasio, lies in Italy. There are high plains on the eastern border like Pokljuka, Mežakla and Jelovica, which also provide excellent hiking opportunities.
The Alpe Adria Trail
The Alpe-Adria-Trail connects the three regions of Carinthia, Slovenia and Friuli-Venezia Giulia in a total of 43 stages and circa 750 km. On our Slovenian holidays you will walk along some of the best parts of the trail from the heart of the Slovenian Alps to the beautiful sunny wine region on the Italian border. You’ll cross a stunning mountain pass, and follow the emerald-green Soča River as it carves its way through the gorgeous Trenta Valley. You’ll trek the Italian-Slovene border along a mountain ridge, before descending into the Italian wine country.
