The routes in the Julian Alps range from easy valley walks and rougher forest trails to high-mountain protected routes, as well as multi-day treks. This handy guidebook describes over 60 walks in the Julian Alps of Slovenia. The walks are organized around five bases - Kranjska Gora, Bovec, Kobarid, Bled and Bohinj.
The Julian Alps are situated in the small independent republic of Slovenia, at the south-eastern end of the Alpine chain. Their highest peak, Triglav, at 2864m, may be smaller than some of the better-known western giants, but what the mountains lack in stature they make up for in interest and accessibility. The dramatic limestone peaks drop steeply through forests to flower meadows, and will give you a feast for the eyes no matter which direction you turn.
