Slovenia - Via Alpina

Degree of difficulty - Moderate

The north-western part of Slovenia displays unspoilt alpine scenery and many unique natural and historical sites. Situated by the Austrian border in the shadow of the Alps the small romantic village Jezersko marks the starting point for our tour. We begin with a lovely round trip to one of Slovenia's oldest alpine huts, located just above forest line. Following the valley of the Sava River we pass by wide meadows of alpine flowers dotted with famous Slovene hay-drying racks before reaching the village Preddvor. From here we walk mountain ridges and meads, valley floors, slowly descending from east to west. Our tour meanders through quiet valley of Draga, underneath ruins of ancient Kamen castle before reaching Begunje where we spend a night. Your last night is spent in Bled, a town overlooked by a medieval castle on the edge of a pristine lake, a truly magic place.

The tour is a collection of different grade walks, however, none of them has a climbers rate. It is meant for experienced walkers with proper equipment.
