JULIANA TRAIL is 267 km long trail around the Julian Alps. The trail leads through the valleys, passes forests, through urban areas and through wilder areas, along rivers Soča and Sava.
There are many circular and themed trails, which acquaint visitors with the heritage of these places. It is possible to combine sightseeing with a walking or a hiking tour. It is also possible to go for a ramble in the woods and gorges, and there are plenty of footpaths leading to mountain villages above the valleys.
Many connecting routes cross the mountains of the Soča Valley: the Alpe Adria Trail connects Grossglockner with sea through the valley. The Walk of Peace follows the battle lines of the First World War, whereas the Old Border Trail follows fortresses which were built between the two wars. The E7 European Long Distance Path crosses the entire valley, from the River Nadiža to Baška grapa.
The mountainous world of the Julian Alps, the pristine nature of the Triglav National Park and the refreshing Soča river make Soča Valley one of the most beautiful hiking destinations.
The hiking trails boast magnificent views of streams and waterfalls, quiet Alpine forests, and a wide range of plants and animals that live in what many people consider the most beautiful part of the Julian Alps.
The marked trails of varying levels of difficulty are suitable for advanced mountain hikers and climbers as well as visitors looking for a pleasant walk and a way to see some of the easily accessible natural wonders and cultural sights.
Before you go to the mountains, read the instructions for safe hiking.
