The Slovenian Alps stretch from northeast Italy west across Slovenia. The highest point, Mount Triglav (2,864 m), lies in the Triglav National Park, the only National Park in the country. The area is an outdoor playground criss-crossed with well-marked climbing, hiking, panoramic and thematic trails.

The Slovenian Alps are largely unspoiled and protected. The region includes three alpine ranges - the Julian Alps in the northwest of the country, the Karavanke in the northeast and the Kamnik-Savinje Alps in the north. Despite the modestly high peaks (around 2500m), the deep valleys, plateaus and limestone ridges create a stunning landscape. Hiking is popular in this Alpine playground and although summiting Mount Trigalv may be ambitious, there are lots of smaller peaks to keep you on your toes. Lake Bohinj, the largest glacial lake in Slovenia, is a top spot for a gentle stroll. The Triglav National Park, which encompasses parts of each of the mountain ranges, is home to the 500 mile-long Slovenia Mountain Trail which after 14 days of high altitude trekking takes you to Austria. Nordic Walking is popular in Slovenia and Dovžan gorge, near Tržič, is a top spot. Watersports including rafting and canyoning take place the Upper Sava Valley, in the Upper Carniola region of Slovenia. Lake Bled is a popular, if cold, scuba diving spot; the glacial waters have excellent visibility. The majority of flights arrive at the capital Ljubljana’s airport, and from there, inexpensive trains cover the country. If you’d prefer to travel under your own steam there are many well-marked bike trails on which to explore this miniature version of Europe.
