The first English-language guidebook to trekking the Slovene High Level
Route across Slovenia. From Maribor to Ankaran the route covers 500km
through the forested plateau of Pohorje, the Julian and Kamnik-Savinja
Alps, the alpine pastures of the Karavanke, and the limestone karst
country. A series of 3 to 6 day treks of all levels of difficulty.
To mountain walkers, Slovenia is best
known for the Julian Alps, but it has a lot more than that to offer, and
the Slovene High-Level Route crosses some of the most varied and
interesting landscapes to be found anywhere in Europe.
From Maribor, close by the Austrian border in the north-east, to
Ankaran on the Adriatic coast in the south-west, the route covers 500km
of outstanding mountain and upland walking: the vast forested plateau of
Pohorje, the sheer limestone peaks of the Julian and Kamnik-Savinja
Alps with their via ferrata protected routes, the traditional alpine
pastures and flower-strewn ridges of the Karavanke, and the forested
hills and olive groves of the limestone karst country that stretch
towards the coast.
Available for the first time to English-speaking walkers, the route
is described in a series of 3-6 day treks of all levels of difficulty,
which can be completed as single sections or linked in a number of ways
for longer holidays.
