    The Kanin mountain range lies within the Julian Alps, right at the border between Italy and Slovenia. Its highest peak Mount Kanin, stands at 2,587 meters.  

    There are many stunning places to visit in the Kanin mountains. But one of the most impressive is Pogore, that separates the upper Soča valley in Slovenia with the Resia valley in Italy.

    The sceneries we’ll get here, look like they came out of the stroke of a stunning painting, or the lines of an inspiring poem. One thing is certain, the inspiration you’ll get from walking around these dazzling lands, will certainly, leave you wanting to explore more.

    Moreover, the Kanin mountains offer trails for everyone. Here we’ll find easy hikes where we’ll simply enjoy our surroundings. And we’ll also encounter more technically challenging trails that are highly demanding. But, no matter what you are looking for, the options are just endless!

    Additionally the access to this wonderful place is an adventure on its own. As during the summer and winter seasons you can arrive by using a ski lift that leads to the Kanin ski slope. Thus, we’ll get mesmerizing views all throughout our journey.

    Due to their unique location, and the great quantities of snow they receive each year, we can take winter tours even in May. The pristine layer of snow that covers these valleys, makes them something exceptional. However, summer has its own charm. With green shades of color, and fresh scents inundating these terrains, it is a real treat walking through them during the summer.

    Would you like to visit this magical land? Send me a request and let’s plan this great trip together.

    If you are looking for a full on winter adventure, I also guide this 1-day snowshoeing tour in Mount Krn, Slovenia.

    Dean is an excellent guide. He\'s friendly and conscientious and throughout or trip was focused on getting us to achieve our hiking goals while being aware of our abilities and experience. We chose a relatively tough hike (8hrs, 1,700m elevation gain) but Dean made sure we completed it safely and at a good pace. He also took photos throughout so we could concentrate on the hiking and shared them with us later. He was also good company on the hike. I would thoroughly recommend his services.
