Slovenia’s attempts to get visitors to stay longer, and visit more places than Ljubljana and Bled, are seeing new offers and attractions being launched around the country. One recent opening is the range of “Bike Slovenia Green” tours, which take you from Kranjska Gora to Koper, as detailed here, while another is the 270-km long Juliana Trail. This is a circular route in 16 stages, with the highlights including Triglav National Park, Bled and Bohinj Lakes, Soča River Valley, Radovljica, Kranjska Gora and Pokljuka Plateau.

As the accompanying press release puts it:

To find, walk, learn and explore the unknown diversity, to offer and use what is unknown to others; this is the Juliana Trail. A trail of a personal pilgrimage to oneself, to pristine nature and its magical beauty, into the diversity of the landscape and biodiversity, to hidden and unknown places with magical power (rivers, lakes, waterfalls, forests, exceptional trees, colourful flowers, rocks of unusual shapes), and last but not least: to culinary, cultural and historical treasures.

The Julian Alps Hiking Trail is planned so it’s possible to spend the night where a stage starts or ends, along with opportunities to buy refreshments. Moreover, where possible stages start at railway stations or bus stops, the  route more accessible to all and encouraging the use of public transport.
