About this book

This book contains over 60 walks which explore the best of the Julian Alps of Slovenia. The walks and treks in this guide are organised around five bases in the Julian Alps – Kranjska Gora, Bovec, Kobarid, Bled and Bohinj – all of which have a range of accommodation and public transport facilities. There is something here for everyone – from easy valley walks and rougher forest trails to high-mountain protected routes, some of which require Alpine mountaineering experience. Several possibilities for multi-day walks are included. The Julian Alps are situated in the small independent republic of Slovenia, at the south-eastern end of the Alpine chain. Their highest peak, Triglav, at 2 864 m, may be smaller than some of the better-known western giants, but what the mountains lack in stature they make up for in interest and accessibility. The dramatic limestone peaks drop steeply through forests to flower meadows, and will give you a feast for the eyes no matter which direction you turn.
