  • Highlights


Every part of the Julian Alps offers its own special features. In the Soča Valley, the most beautiful paths are those along rivers and streams or leading to waterfalls. In the Kranjska Gora area, there are wonderful excursions to the Alpine valleys cut deep between the mountain peaks. Bled and Bohinj are offering relaxing lakeside strolls, while in the area around Radovljica tracks and paths lead to ruined castles and hilltop churches providing breathtaking views. Brda is ideal for active holidays all year round, with circular hiking trails winding through the vineyards, orchards and olive groves, as well as the long-distance trails like Juliana Trail and Alpe Adria Trail.
