  • Magnificent views in the Julian Alps
  • Explore and admire Alpine Slovenia's scenic lakes, forests and mountains
  • Variety of walks through meadows to the sound of cowbells jangling

Mountains, lakes, meadows and forests in pristine, Alpine Slovenia. What more could you ask from a walking holiday? Wandering across wildflower meadows with the sound of cowbells jangling and the omnipresent backdrop of the magnificent Julian Alps is a pure delight.
