Pick of the best Slovenian mountain trails

Despite its small size, Slovenia is home to almost 10,000 kilometres of walking routes across the country. From relaxed and gentle walks suitable for the whole family to serious Alpine treks reserved for the more experienced explorers, Slovenia is a haven for the hiker.

The limestone Julian Alps offer superb walking through historical sites, and are filled with areas of outstanding beauty. Navigate your way through dense forests and wild meadows, along purpose built wooden bridges, or climb to the top of a peak for those unforgettable vistas.

Walk of Peace

Just over an hour’s drive from Kranjska Gora, you can follow the battlefields of World War I along this historical trail.

Starting from the ancient settlement of Kobarid, famous for the 1917 Battle of Caporetto, the gentle hike takes several hours to complete but visitors can take smaller sections of the trail if they’re limited on time. Along the way you can discover the remnants of the Isonzo Front, including trenches and bunkers, explore six outdoor museums and reflect among the military cemeteries and chapels.

Soca Trail

This 20-kilometre trail is another that takes visitors along the pristine Soca River in the Triglav National Park. Starting at the river’s source, hike down the valley of Trenta to the Krsovec hamlet before continuing on to the small town of Bovec. Cross hanging bridges and enjoy spectacular views over the Mlinarica Gorge, filled with gushing waterfalls and picturesque pools before wandering around the oldest botanical garden in Slovenia or the Trenta Museum.
