Type of Trip
Join this adventure through the Julian Alps and the Triglav National Park. Explore one of the most beautiful regions of Europe.
Ranging all the way from Slovenia to Italy, the Julian Alps are a stunning mountain range, that form part of the Limestone Alps. And, their tallest peak is the Mount Triglav, standing at 2,864 meters of height.
The name of the Julian Alps has an curious history, as they received it from Julius Caesar. So the beauty of these mountains is as fascinating as its history.
The Triglav National Park covers most of the Julian Alps. The park is the largest protected wild area in Slovenia, under a special conservation regime. Also, this wonderful park receives its name from the tallest mountain in Slovenia, Mt. Triglav (2,864m), an emblematic peak of the country.
Charming beech, spruce and larch forest cover most of the park. But it’s also brimming with many other species. As for the terrain, it is as varied as stunning, with steep rock faces, sharp peaks and deep and dazzling glacial valleys.
There are over 400 slovenian peaks in this region, that rise at heights of over 2,000 meters. As Mt. Triglav is the highest peak, we’ll be able to see from all around the park. But, there are many other mountains that rise above the clouds, like Škrlatica (2,740m), Mangart (2,679m), Jalovec (2,645m) and Razor (2,601m).
There are several spots we can visit, from majestic peaks to charming valleys, as well as many cultural attractions. Thus, I left the itinerary of this trip open. So we can visit all the places you want, for as long as you wish.
