Went on a day trip to the Julian Alps and was not disappointed. The views and scenery throughout the trip could not be better. Of all the trips on offer I would rate this one the best.

We recommend the hikes to Visoki Mavrinc and Slemenova Spica. We spent 4 days in the Julian Alps and the Slemenova Spica hike was our favorite.

Stunning place to visit even if its raining. The views are great and well worth seeing. Best option is a rental car

Wow, what an amazing drive over the Vrsic Pass and this is from a person who is not keen on heights and has the potential for car sickness. Thankfully there was not a lot of traffic so we took it slowly, stopping occasionally to take...More
