Julian Alps, Slovenia

The Julian Alps are considered as one of the most beautiful and best for hiking and multi-days hut to hut trekking tours. Hospitable caretakers of mountain huts, which were mostly built in the 19th Century, open the doors every year between June and October to hikers and visitors. The paths in the Julian Alps are well trodden and marked. The majority of the Julian Alps belong to the Triglav National Park, which has a task of protecting the unspoiled nature of the area.
