The programme Juliana Trail: Hike through the Emerald Valley leads you along the emerald beauty, the Soča River. The journey begins at the artificial lake at Most na Soči and takes you upstream over the highest mountain passes. Here, some spectacular views and beautiful emerald lakes await you.


The programme is designed in such a way that you can walk the trail on your own, without a guide. The trail is very well marked, with the Juliana Trail signs on the ground and the surrounding walls and with small sign boards. Recommended are good hiking shoes and clothes, hiking poles, drinks and food in a backpack.
