At this year's WTM London, the Slovenian Tourist Board, in partnership with the Julian Alps, highlighted Slovenia as a country with a sustainable tourism offer that encourages the development of responsible, inclusive and respectful tourism.
The Julian Alps are perhaps best known as a hiking and cycling destination with beautiful natural scenery to explore in the warmer months but did you know that it is also a hidden gem winter sports destination?
There is something about September that makes it really inviting. This month also sees the throng of summer tourists disappear and whereby there are still plenty of visitors, it won’t be quite as busy as it is in July and August.
If you have missed out on a summer holiday this year but looking to go somewhere special in autumn, Slovenia’s Julian Alps could be the perfect choice for your next trip - September is a great time to visit.
The region boasts some of the most magnificent scenery you will ever encounter.
Sustainable tourism is a principle at the heart of the Julian Alps and the region includes many nationally and internationally recognised green destinations. Bohinj was the very first destination to receive the highest award of the prestigious platinum label as part of the Green Scheme of Slovenia.
With its incredible, vast mountain landscapes, the Julian Alps’ truly are a paradise for hiking, mountain biking and climbing but it is imperative to ensure you take adequate safety precautions whenever you are on the unforgiving mountains.
During summertime the Julian Alps comes alive as the sun beams down across its breathtaking landscapes. Throughout the summer, there will be a range of fantastic events taking place across the region with something for everyone to get involved with!
