Trekking in Slovenia: The Slovene High Level Route
A guidebook to trekking the Slovene High Level Route, crossing Slovenia from Austria to the Adriatic. The 500km 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. 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.
