Alpine jewels

The mighty peaks, which offer incredible views and crystal-clean water, and which sparkle in the sunshine, are a verdant green landscape whose tranquillity will inspire you and whose energy will uplift you. All this awaits in the sanctuary of the Julian Alps, where the peaks can reach as high as 2500 m and more. The king of this range is Triglav, Slovenia’s highest mountain and the symbol of the Slovenian nation. It requires a great deal of respect, as access is not easy, so it is best to climb it accompanied by mountain guides.

Experience a genuine contact with nature in Triglav National Park, which in addition to high mountains also features picturesque Alpine valleys, rivers and lakes. The largest of these are Lake Bohinj and the idyllic Lake Bled, with Slovenia’s only natural island. Follow the emerald-green beauty of the Soča River all the way to the vineyard hills of Brda. Put on your hiking shoes and explore the treasure trove of natural beauty in the Julian Alps.

Safety first

There is a saying in Slovenia, i.e. “The mountains are not crazy, but those who climb them are.” Therefore, it is very important to ensure your own safety when going into the mountains. Use the appropriate equipment, check the weather and snow conditions and choose trails that suit your physical condition. If this is your first time going into the mountains, it’s recommended that you are accompanied by a mountain guide.

Getaways in the Julian Alps

Hiking is one of Slovenia’s most popular activities. Slovenia has just over twenty thousand square kilometres of surface area, over which lead nearly ten thousand kilometres of marked trails. Some of the most beautiful include the long-distance paths that run through Slovenia’s diverse landscapes and the majority of which are part of the European long-distance path network. In addition to active outdoor activities, you will get insights into the wealth of natural and cultural heritage along the trails. Quite a few of these trails lead through the Julian Alps..
