SLOVENIA - HIKING ALPE ADRIA TRAIL : 8days 7 nights  Self Guided 

From the high peaks around Kranjska Gora, to the vineyards of Brda ,through the emerald valley of Soča river and the Triglav National Park.

Optional Tour  with a qualified mountain guide includes  the scenic stages 23, 24 ,25 ,26, 27,28 of the Alpe Adria Trail. 

The Alpe - Adria - Trail is a newly developed long distance hiking path ( 43 stages)  from the foot of the Grossglockner to the Adriatic sea and the town of Muggia. The trail was jointly developed and impemented by three partners from Austria (Karnten Werbung) Slovenia (Slovenian Tourism Board) and Italy (Friuli-Venezia Giulia Tourism Board). 

The Alpe - Adria - Trail crosses three countries and was conceived as an easy-to-walk pleasure trail in mainly non alpine terrain. The route leads along existing paths of accordingly good hiking quality and has given the theme " Hiking in the Garden of Eden"as a metaphor for the great variety that is encountered on the south side of the Alps and in the Alps-Adriatic region. 

Whilst hiking from the glaciers of the Hohe tauern mountain range, along lakes,brooks and rivers to the Adriatic coast, one gets to know the cultural diversity of three different countries connected by a common history and past.
