The programme Juliana Trail: Round and Round Julian Alps leads you around the Julian Alps mountain range, through urban valleys and secluded plateaus, over mountain passes, along hidden paths of rural areas, through bigger tourist centres on the mountain edges, along the Soča, Sava, Bača and Tolminka rivers and partly across the scarcely inhabited Italian border area.


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