The first English-language guidebook to trekking the 500km Slovene High Level Route, crossing Slovenia from Austria to the Adriatic. To mountain walkers, Slovenia is best known for the Julian Alps, but it has a lot more than that to offer, and the Slovene High Level Route crosses some of the most varied and interesting landscapes to be found anywhere in Europe. From Maribor, close by the Austrian border in the north-east, to Ankaran on the Adriatic coast in the south-west, the route covers 500km of outstanding mountain and upland walking: the vast forested plateau of Pohorje, the sheer limestone peaks of the Julian and Kamnik-Savinja Alps with their via ferrata protected routes, the traditional alpine pastures and flower-strewn ridges of the Karavanke, and the forested hills and olive groves of the limestone karst country that stretch towards the coast. Available for the first time to English-speaking walkers, the route is described in a series of 3-6 day treks of all levels of difficulty, which can be completed as single sections or linked in a number of ways for longer holidays.
