We hiked here in the snow and ice and it was beautiful. Great view toward the italy and the austrian alps. Challenging but manageable for a fit family with kids. In the winter, crampons and hiking boots are highly recommended. Really fantastic day out.

Vrsic Pass in the Julian Alps offers some beautiful views. It has many hairpin curves, so it helps if you are used to driving in the mountains. The area is loaded with history and well worth the trip.

We drove up from Kranjska Gora and admired the sensational views. The road was very drivable but do watch out for bicycles! Lots of pull outs to stop and take a look.

I was a bit surprised, but It was still very busy at the Vrsic Pass in September. And there were also roadworks with traffic lights on different road sections. Even so, it is a beautiful route with great views. I liked the view at the...More

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.

There designated parking areas through the area. A map indicating them could be useful
