We were only on a day drive through the Alps and heading over the Vrsic Pass from Kobarid to Kranska Gora but the scenery for the day was absolutely magical. Climbing up the mountain around the tight hairpin bends and then finding snow on the branches of the fir trees we got to the Pass and it was gorgeous. We... More

I drove from Lake Bled through the Julian Alps using a suggested tour itinerary that I found in my Rick Steves' Eastern Europe 2015 book. The scenery here is simply stunning!! You can do a round trip from Ljubljana, through the Alps, and back in a day. However, give yourself more time because the scenery is just so breathtaking!! In... More

We first visited Slovenia in 2012 on a swimming trip, swimming in Bled, Bohinj and lakes just over the Italian border, We spent the last few days exploring the Triglav National Park and walked as far as Vodnikov Dom, the scenery was so amazing we resolved to return to seriously walk the Juilan Alps and conquer Triglav. Our next trip... More

Julian alps are surprisingly pretty. You will truly fall in love with the national park once you get to see closer to mountain peaks. You need to walk to one of the peaks, or take a cable car alternatively drive through vrsic pass. Mountains and scenery is stunning.

This is a great area to spend time if you enjoy the outdoors. There are a large number of activities that you can do there including kayaking, hiking, swimming, etc. This area has a ton of beautiful sites including a large number of Fjords, suspension bridges and World War I historic sites.

The Julian Alps are part of the only national park in Slovenia. The hairpin turns are actually quite tame in relation to other drives of this type, but the scenery is stunningly beautiful. The Soca river is something to see: unlike most rivers the water is turquoise, absolutely beautiful. If you are anywhere in this general vicinity, the drive is... More

The car journey was from Bovec to Kransjka Gora over the Vrsic pass with the fifty hair pin curves. Yes, they have numbered them. On this journey you get the impression of the beautiful unspoiled nature of this area. Yes, there are small villages, very quaint, and there is wild water rafting for tourists, but overall the nature is much... More

The Julian Alps are an amazing thing to see. We rent a car in Lbjliana and drove all the way to the alps. Later on we camp close to a turquoise river. If you are adventurous you will be able to hike one or more of the road that are available in that area. Getting to the top of the... More

We have just arrived home after completing several trips with thompson, with the alps being one of them. And can truly say what an educational experience this was. Not only wonderful scenery but the history behind it made it a great experience

We got to explore some areas of these most picturesque Alps when we took a day tour. A range of mountains stretching from Italy to Slovenia. Triglav being the highest and charming peak of this country is a must visit. Julian Alps are included in Triglav National park. There are so many road passes here and being a sportive country...
