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.

Activities: walking, backpacking, trekking, via ferrataSeasonsroutes clear of snow and weather stable from mid-June to the end of September; high mountain huts only open from July to September; many facilities closed from October to May and snow possible. Centres: stage starts and finishes: Maribor, Slovenj Gradec, Solcava, Zgornje Jezersko, Tržic, Mojstrana, Vršic, Trenta, Petrovo brdo, Idrija, Col, Matavun, Ankaran. Difficulty: series of 3 to 6 day treks of all levels of difficulty; each day graded from 1 (mostly on tracks or lanes, not steep or technical) to 3 (long and strenuous, often with fixed protection, self-belaying equipment and helmet recommended). Must See: highest peak Triglav (2864m); vast forested plateau of Pohorje; sheer limestone peaks of the Julian and Kamnik-Savinja Alps; traditional alpine pastures and flower-strewn ridges of the Karavanke; forested hills and olive groves of the limestone karst country.
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.
