Like many destinations around the world, the new season brings a whole new look to the place. The warm autumn colours start to descend upon the landscape, illuminating the alps in a magical palette of golden hues. What better time of year to visit as the rich autumn colours turn the dramatic forests into a magical backdrop of warm burnt orange and vibrant yellows.
Autumn is often considered the wettest time of year so perhaps go prepared for the occasional downpour. However, for many visitors this glorious season is an ideal time to go.
Visitors can still aim for T-shirts and light sweaters but do pack a waterproof jacket and appropriate footwear to be on the safe side!
If you love walking and hiking, you will love this part of the world. There are many well maintained hiking trails to suit every level but one of the most popular is around Triglav, Slovenia’s highest peak. Just imagine the breath-taking scenery you'll enjoy along the way. The peaks and passes of Triglav National Park offer a true Alpine experience.
For anyone planning some serious hiking, do be mindful that many of the mountain huts close their doors from September 20 so please consider your needs. For mountain safety tips please visit our website for everything you need to know.
If you don't want to do any intense hiking, why not simply take a gentle stroll and breathe in the fresh air with your nearest and dearest? For example, autumn in Bled is like an open-air gallery and the rich colours of autumn only adds to its beauty.
It’s also a dreamy, romantic setting if you’re hoping to spend quality time with your other half.
