Alpe-Adria-Trail Slovenia

Soča and Triglav National Park.

You explore this uniquely beautiful segment of the Slovenian Alpe-Adria-Trails in five diverse stages. From the start you enter the Triglav National park, the only national park in Slovenia and hike across the Vrisic pass in order to reach the river Soča source region. You follow the course of the ‚most beautiful river in Europe’ along historic paths through impressive scenery and quaint villages. The emerald-green waters of the river Soča carve its way across precipices and artistic gorges washed out from rockfaces and finally flowe comfortably through Italy. As a final highlight of your mountain hiking week on the Alpe-Adria-Trail you cross over the national border into Italy at the Kolovrat  mountain crest, which is also the spot where the adventure of the World Heritage – natural site Soča ends.

Itinerary

The starting point of the first tour is the mountain pass Vrisic located on an altitude of 1618 metres and boasting amazing views. After a short transfer you start your tour, always slightly ascending all the way to the source of the river Soča. The river Soča, ‚Isonzo’ in Italian, is the ‚soul’ of the Julian Alps with its crystal clear waters. The route leads you along soft, idyllic sections along the river followed by areas with wild roaring waters carving its way through deep gorges. You follow the Soča-Trail and reach your Day Finish Trenta.

approx. 5 to 6 hours
14 km
150 m
800 m

Today one of the most spectacular sections awaits. From Trenta  you walk accompanied by the river Soča either level along the river or high up above the glistening waters. You switch over to the other side of the river via several sturdy hanging bridges with marvellous views down into the valley. The hike through the Soča gorge is a very special experience on this tour. At the end of the gorge the route leads you comfortably to Bovec.

approx. 6 to 7 hours

This stage again is characterised by water. Shortly after Bovec you reach the roaring waterfall Virje. The next highlight is the impressive Boka waterfall, the biggest waterfall in Slovenia -  a very special and unique natural spectacle. Then onwards through pastureland via Kamp Trnovo into the mountain village of Magozd, from where you can already spot Dreznica and its pilgrimage church.

You walk along ‚the peace path’ to the Italian chapel Bes na Planici, located at the entrance to the Triglav National park. Again and again you can marvel at the fabulous views into the valley and to the river Soča, and the Kolovrat mountain ridges situated opposite. Soon you reach the high-altitude pastures of the Kuhinja, where we recommend you sample the regional cheese specialities, before you descend to Tolmin.

approx. 6 to 7 hours

The route leads you uphill through the Kamnica rift high up to the Hlevnik with fantastic long-distance views into the valley. After a short ascent you reach the Kolovrat mountain ridge. The route now takes you through former defence works over to the Klabuk, where you can marvel at the amazing panoramic views onto the surrounding peaks. The descent is sheer bliss and ends at the Refugio Solarie, the former border checkpoint into Italy. Return transfer to the starting point Kranjska Gora.

Eine Wanderung mit vielen Facetten
Diese Wanderung führt am ersten Tag direkt im Trenta-Tal zum Soca-Ursprung. Der Fluss begleitet den Wanderer die nächsten Tage. Er bietet nicht nur eine Augenweide mit seinem glasklaren und türkisen Wasser, sondern auch die Möglichkeit zur Abkühlung. Wer gerne die Natur pur erleben möchte, ist hier gut aufgehoben.

Traumhaft
Die Slowenientour war eine der schönsten Reisen die wir unternommen haben, super freundliches Reiseland mit traumhafter ursprünglicher Natur, war leider zur Reisezeit sehr heiß, waren aber viel in der Soca zum abkühlen. Hotels und Pensionen waren top. Sehr zu empfehlen! War ganz, ganz großes Erlebnis.
