Austria, Slovenia, and Italy – three countries, three cultures, three different landscapes, but all connected by the Alpe Adria Trail.
The trail begins in Koroška under the highest mountain in Austria, Mount Grossglockner, and enters Slovenia across the Karavanke Range, where the landscape turns into a wild limestone world. The Alpe Adria Trail will lead you across the Vršič Pass and through the Soča River Valley into the very heart of these primaeval surroundings. Near Kobarid, the trail ascends to the Planina Kuhinja beneath Mt. Krn, then continues towards Tolmin, where it leaves the Alpine world at the Kolovrat Ridge and transforms for the third time. This time, it becomes Mediterranean. In the Brda Hills and in the Karst Region, it once again leads you to Slovenia, but it soon returns to Italy, where this great trail through three countries ends in Muggia, near Trieste.
The Alpe Adria long-distance trail consists of 37 stages, with a relatively minor altitude difference. You will be able to focus on enjoying the beautiful countryside and tasting delicious culinary delights. Another six stages connected into a circular six-day tour leads you through all of the three countries on the Alpe Adria Trail.
