Guidebooks - Cicerone - Walking in Slovenia: The Karavanke
By Justi Carey & Roy Clark
The magnificent 120km-long Karavanke mountain range forms a natural border between Slovenia and Austria. It is one of the longest mountain ranges in Western Europe, yet it remains relatively unvisited and unknown among English-speaking hillwalkers. Visitors tend to rush to the much better known Julian Alps, leaving these gems of mountains untouched, so they are yet to experience the extent of the commercial development known by the Western Alps.
This guidebook offers 23 walking routes across the 120km Karavanke mountain range, a natural border between Austria and Slovenia. The one and two-day routes cater for all abilities, from low-level walks to high summits. The approaches are mainly from the forested valleys of the Slovenian side, with bases in unspoilt towns and villages.
