Hiking in the Eastern Alps
Hiking in the Eastern Alps sets you out on a quieter path than most other Alpine walks. The Julian Alps of Slovenia and the peaks of Rila and Pirin in Bulgaria may not have the height advantage of many of the larger Alpine mountains, but they are still entirely beautiful with wonderful walking and often not another soul in sight.
In Slovenia, you can walk the High Trails of the Julian Alps to get an experience similar to the classic Alpine treks or if you want to take it a little bit easier you can explore the Mountains and Lakes of the Julian Alps. Bulgaria's High Peaks & Lakes of the Rila & Pirinshowcase the stunning, but rarely visited Bulgarian peaks on a real voyage of discovery in this up-and-coming tourist destination.
