Julian Alps (Slovenia)

The Julian Alps' natural variety and beauty rival those of the mountains in the far more heavily trekked neighboring Italy and Switzerland - at lower cost. A trek in the Julian Alps will reward you with breath-taking views of steep rock faces plunging into forests and flower-strewn meadows; stunning panoramas of majestic mountains from a lone trekkers' lodge improbably perched on a limestone promontory (“How did it get there ?!”); lakes, rivers, beautiful pastures and the ever-present limestone – nature's sculpture gallery on display.
Our base camp is Bled, an as-yet-unspoiled lakeside village which is overlooked by a castle on a cliff, encircled  by a delightful promenade, with overhead air-traffic provided by an extended family of swans. From here we set off for a 3-day trek, return for Shabbat, and then again foray into the mountains for a 2-day finale.
Like our Dolomite Traverse, this too is a back-packing trek, and the two treks are comparable with regard to difficulty and altitude.
