Julian Alps, Slovenia

06/06/2012 to 20/06/2012

126 miles; 25,745 feet total ascent; 31,715 feet total descent


The north-west of Slovenia is dominated by dramatic white limestone mountains, the Julian Alps. The highest peak, Mount Triglav, stands at over 2800 metres; Triglav National Park dominates and protects this whole area. The panoramic views from the Vrsic Pass, a high mountain road connecting the Trenta Valley from Bovec to Kranjska Gora, are truly spectacular. It is a landscape of soaring peaks, deep valleys, rivers of crystal clear water, blankets of thick forest, and meadows filled with wild flowers. This is an area of crashing waterfalls and beautiful lakes: Lake Bled is the most famous, and nearby is the relatively untouched Lake Bohinj.

Another Ramblers Worldwide Holidays trip, and graded at C+ and D+, we had a good selection of challenging and enjoyable walks. Staying in two centres, Bohinj and Kranjska Gora, we had a wide selection of terrain and difficulty to choose from. Our two leaders, Al & Jane Sarjeant, were kept pretty busy but always had a smile and words of encouragement when needed. Thank you for another 'AL & Jane Adventure'!
