Mountains & Lakes of the Julian Alps

  • Walking through Alpine meadows beneath the snow capped peaks of the Julian Alps
  • Soaking up the views along the best sections of the Via Alpina
  • Indulging in the traditional Slovenian dish of wind cured karst prosciutto ham
  • Exploring the Romanesque towers and Renaissance secrets of Bled Castle
  • Arriving at the blue waters of Lake Bohinj in the heart of Triglav National Park
Explore the mountains and lakes of Slovenia’s Julian Alps as you follow the Via Alpina from the tranquil village of Jezersko to Lake Bohinj at the heart of the Triglav National Park. Following well-marked trails, you will walk across forested plateaus, through deep river gorges and across flower-filled Alpine meadows with the snow-capped peaks of the Julian Alps as your constant companions. Medieval castles, churches and traditional mountain villages bring the walk to life and immerse you in the friendly Slovenian culture. Your holiday begins with three nights in the small romantic village of Jezersko in the Kokra Valley. You then walk up the northern side of the Kamnik Alps—which rewards with wonderful Alpine views. Your walk continues along mountain ridges, meadows and valley floors via Bled to finish at Lake Bohinj, the jewel at the heart of the Triglav National Park. Slovenia’s Julian Alps, located on the border with Austria, have always been a crossroads and this is reflected in the rich culture, architecture, music, history and food of this beguiling region. Highlights include the baroque Church of St. Petrus, Kamen Castle, Kremna Reszina pastries, karst prosciutto ham, borovnica blueberry schnapps and a lively folk music scene.
