Slovenian part of Via Dinarica
Welcome to the Via Dinarica, named Outside magazine’s Best New Trail in 2014, Paste magazine’s best trekking path in 2015, a 2016 must-see by both Wanderlust magazine and The Guardian, and National Geographic Traveler‘s “Best of the World” destination for 2017 .
The Dinaric Alps – one of Europe’s least explored mountain ranges – runs through the heart of the Western Balkans. Each country along the range is a combination of outdoor paradise and living museum dedicated to a culture which has long since passed from the rest of the continent. The Via Dinarica – the original project began in 2010 – served, as serves, as a platform to promote and develop tourism efforts throughout local communities across the Western Balkan Peninsula. The trail, which spans nearly 2000km, connects the countries and communities of Dinaric Alps by spotlighting the region’s common thread – its landscape – as well as its diverse culture. A similar model, Via Alpina, has been implemented in the European Union, connecting eight countries in the Western Alps.
