It is almost impossible to choose only one best stage, only one most amazing view and a single non-forgettable experience on the Juliana Trail. The programme The Best of the Best on the Juliana Trail offers some of the best highlights of the trail, which you can experience in a 10-day hike around the Julian Alps. You decide which one is your personal favourite.


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.
