The Juliana Trail takes you through remote villages and settlements in a 270-kilometres loop around the Slovenia’s stunning Julian Alps.

Slovenians proudly say that they live on the »Sunny side of the Alps« and one can easily see that the saying is true. Julian Alps stretch in the north western corner of Slovenia, bordering Austria and Italy. They offer numerous easy, moderate or difficult trails for hiking and walking enthusiasts. The Juliana Walking Trail circles the Julian Alps and Triglav National Park. It’s one of the best trails, which connects people with nature, history, tradition and different kinds of culinary. From almost every part of the trail, hikers are inspired by the wonderful views of the highest peaks of Slovenia.

“The Juliana Trail won’t be the most challenging hike you’ve ever done, but you won’t find an experience quite like it anywhere else.” – Owen Clarke, Outside Magazine

It’s easy, put on your hiking shoes and explore the treasure trove of natural beauty in the Julian Alps. Experience the Julian Alps and you will get to love this exceptional nature area. Explore the world of the Julian Alps on your own.
