The JULIANA Trail is a 267 km long distance trail around the Julian Alps. It runs through valleys, over passes, through forests, urban and rural areas, along the Soča and Sava Rivers.
The trail runs across the areas around the Julian Alps mountain range. It starts near the Slovenian/Italian border in Kranjska Gora, which is a well-known winter and summer tourist resort, and continues along the Sava River, across the Karavanke mountain range, where it offers beautiful views of the highest peak in Slovenia, Mt Triglav. Th trail continues past Lake Bled, one of Slovenian and European pearls, ascends to the Pokljuka plateau in the centre of the Triglav National Park, descends to the picturesque Lake Bohinj, and continues across the southern Bohinj mountain range to the southern part of the Julian Alps – through Baška Grapa to the Soča River, further toe Predil Pass where it enters Italy and then returns to Kranjska Gora. The circle around the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park is one of the best trails which connects people with nature, history, tradition and cuisine.
Walk slowly; visit some of the best natural and cultural highlights of Slovenia in its mountain area. The trail itself is not technically demanding. The best time to walk the trail is from March to November.
The trail is long but on each stage is enough water, food supplies. Almost every where is telephone signal and no dangerous animals.
Hiking shoes and clothes. Some drinks and food with you. Sticks and photo are necessary equipment.
