JULIANA TRAIL is a 267-km-long trail around the Julian Alps. The trail leads through valleys, over mountain passes, forests, through urban and rural areas and along the Soča and Sava rivers.
The circular long-distance JULIANA TRAIL leads around the Julian Alps mountain ridge, through urban valleys and secluded plateaus, over mountain passes, along hidden paths of rural areas, through bigger touristic centres on the edge of the mountains, along the Soča, Sava, Bača and Tolminka rivers and partly across the Italian border-line area with few inhabitants. From nearly all stages and all directions the trail offers views of the Slovenian highest mountain Triglav. On our hike we will meet the ironworks history in Slovenia, see the hometowns of great Slovenian writers and poets, get to know the significance of beekeeping once and today and the significance of preservation of quality forests. On the way, we will drink the crystal-clear spring water, feel the throb of bigger tourist destinations, meet simple people, living on solitary farms and cheese-makers, producing amazing cheese, and we will explore the places that were strongly affected by the First World War – but above everything, we will always feel and admire the life and meaning of Triglav National Park.
The trail runs through the valleys and over mountain passes and is generally not technically demanding. The trail is possible to walk from March to November.
