Alpine Region - Local and Tourist Information
Slovenia's alpine region stretches along most of its northern border with Austria.
The Julian Alps in the west the Julian Alps bordering Italy and Austria are dominated by Mount Triglav, Slovenia's highest mountain at 2,864 metres. The surrounding Triglav National Park is certainly one of Slovenia most notable areas ofnatural beauty. The highest peaks of the Julian Alps soften into the hills, meadows and valleys surrounding the scenic lakes Bled and Bohinj and the glorious emerald green Soca river. Kranjska Gora is the principal ski resort in the region.
The Kamnik and Savinje Alps lie further east and on the southern border of Austria. Mt Grintovec at 2,558 metres is the highest peak. This area is a paradise for mountaineers and rock climbers and is also favoured by hikers and cyclists.
The Via Alpina long distance trail runs for 300 kilometres throughout the length of Slovenia's alpine region.
Maribor is an ancient and thriving city on the banks of the River Drava. Famed for wine, its opera house and skiing.
Bovec and the Soca Valley
The landscape of the Soca valley offers magnificent views of the mountains and little gems of beauty at every twist and turn of the River Soca as it tumbles down form the Julian Alps. An inspirational place to visit.
Lake Bled with its iconic island and towering castle on a high rock outcrop beside the lake is simply magical. Picturesque in every light it is the most photographed place in Slovenia. Lots of activities for those who enjoy the outdoor life.
Lake Bohinj is less visited and quieter than Lake Bled but no less beautiful. A perfect destination for outdoor activities and to refresh your spirit.
Slovenia's principal alpine ski resort but also a destination for a fun packed summer activity holiday with everything from zip lines and paragliding to numerous bike and hiking trails.
