A 9-day hiking holiday in Slovenia and north east Italy. A tiny country, Slovenia is sometimes referred to as The Sunny Side of the Alps.

We stay beside beautiful Lake Bohinj from where we hike to the Julian Alps before continuing to Kobarid on the pretty Soca River. The town is known to the Italians as Caporetto and was of great historical importance in World War 1. Ernest Hemingway immortalised the town in his novel "A Farewell to Arms".

Today Kobarid is often regarded as the culinary capital of the country and has several excellent restaurants. We cross the mountains into Italy to explore Friuli where we walk in the vineyards of Collio and visit the Unesco World Heritage town of Cividale.
This tour starts in Ljubljana and finishes in Venice. .

Since some of the walking is in the mountains it is crucial to be prepared for adverse weather conditions. Sturdy walking boots, with good grip and ankle support, are essential.
Walking poles are highly recommended, especially on steeper sections. To see how we grade the walking we have a simple comparison of all our tours taking into account ascents/descents, distances and terrain.

In order to maximize your enjoyment of your holiday it is important to exercise regularly prior to the trip in order to build up your fitness level.
