This Gorgeous New 186-mile Trail Takes Hikers Through the Best of the Alps

While there are trails you can hit around the world to immerse yourself in nature, hiking in the Alps is about to become an ultimate bucket list destination.

With summer just around the corner, you might want to think about taking a hike to get into the great outdoors.

While there are trails you can hit around the world to immerse yourself in nature, hiking in the Alps is about to become an ultimate bucket list destination.

The country of Slovenia has opened a 186-mile Julian Alps Hiking Trail, just in time for your warm-weather getaway. The new long-distance trail takes you through alpine valleys, pastures, local towns, and small villages in Slovenia. This massive trail is the latest addition to Slovenia's 700-plus trails that you can take around the country.

Starting in Rateče, a small town on the Italian border, the trail is divided into 16 sections of about 10 miles each. Some of the most notable sites include the Julian Alps Biosphere Reserve (UNESCO MAB) and Triglav National Park. Even though you’re in the Alps, there are still plenty of small towns to stop in for overnight accommodations or even just a place to rest or eat.

While you’re hiking along the trail, there are plenty of opportunities to discover Slovenian culture, including local myths, craftwork, and delicacies.

Hikers will also be able to access Wi-Fi along the trail and every section is marked by a railway or bus stop, for added safety.

The Julian Alps are a particularly special place to visit to see the magnificent scenery. This lush, emerald green mountain range is home to the highest peaks in Slovenia, including Triglav, the highest peak of all.

According to one study by the Adventure Travel Trade Association, hiking is the most popular outdoor activity, at least according to 8,000 Outside magazine subscribers that were surveyed.

For more information about the trail and Slovenia, visit the Slovenian tourism website or the Triglav National Park website.
