Trekking Julian Alps in Slovenia
- Ascent to Triglav, an emblematic mountain that is the object of worship for the Slovenian people.
- Demanding trekking in the Julian Alps with a great variety of landscapes.
- A territory with the highest proportion of forests and green areas in Europe.
This mountain trekking in Slovenia takes place inside the Triglav National Park , in the heart of the Julian Alps , where we find the mythical Triglav peak (2864 m.), The highest point of the massif and the country and to which we will ascend.
A route with a great variety of landscapes, such as wide and spectacular alpine valleys, sharp and breathtaking rocky peaks and ridges, beautiful and hidden mountain lakes, dense forests, karst phenomena, and different formations that vary from 500 to almost 3,000 meters altitude. Furthermore, the park is also very rich and varied in flora and fauna, with several endemic species of plants due to its location between the cold Alpine north and the warm Mediterranean south.
Sandwiched between Austria and Croatia, and also sharing a border with Italy and Hungary, is the interesting little country of Slovenia . More than half of its territory is made up of forests and green areas , the highest proportion in Europe after Scandinavia. In addition, much of the country is mountainous, culminating in the northwest with the impressive and little-known Julian Alps . Its peaks are rugged and rise dramatically from wooded valleys, forming magnificent and surprising karst labyrinths.
