Hiking in Slovenia – explore the Slovenian Alps
Hiking in Slovenia, specifically the Slovenian Alps, is one of the big attractions for tourists arriving from all around the world. Hiking in the Alps in general is very enticing, but what makes hiking in Slovenia all the more interesting is the mass of different difficulties combined with the relative close proximity of alternative activities. One can go hiking in the Slovenian Alps and in a mere two hours of driving by car, one can already be swimming in the Mediterranean sea, floating and relaxing ones muscles from the prior exhaustion.
Hiking in the Alps, no matter your experience
Just hearing one might be going hiking in the Alps might scare some people off, but with several mountain ranges close together, the Slovenian Alps offer a wide selection of paths and difficulties. Whether you’re taking your young and inexperienced children on a one-day trip in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps, or decide to take on the highest of them all – Triglav – you will find a path that will either challenge your capabilities or allow you to take a safe hiking trip in Slovenia.
Once you’ve bested hiking in Slovenia, you will definitely be ready to take on the most difficult of hiking of the Alps.
Slovenian Alps and its surroundings
It’s not all about record-high altitudes when it comes to hiking in Slovenia though. You can decide to visit one of the easier to scale destinations, which still offer phenomenal views and beautiful nature. An example would be Velika Planina, whose peak reaches only about 1500m, but is one of the most popular destinations, especially for families, the elderly and the less experienced hikers. You can see how the indigenous people – Planšarji – used to live: in small huts, taking care of their cattle all year round. If the hiking suddenly becomes too much, you can take advantage of the cable car and leave hiking in the Slovenian Alps for another day.
