Alpine Slovenia is a world of friendly and accessible mountains and hills. Hiking and biking trails take you across the Julian Alps, the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Pohorje Hills to the highest peaks, rivers, lakes and waterfalls.
You can feel the beauty of green Slovenia as you enjoy a view of the famous Lake Bled and the beloved Lake Bohinj. There are countless opportunities for outdoor activities amidst the picturesque Alpine peaks and valleys embraced by the Julian Alps, Triglav National Park, the mighty Kamnik and Savinja Alps, and the green Pohorje Mountains. Either head to Maribor, the city with the oldest grapevine in the world, the renowned holiday destination of Kranjska Gora, the stunning region of Koroška, or visit the Soča River Valley – no matter where you go, an incredible experience awaits you.
When to visit
The winter season in Alpine Slovenia runs from December to April and turns alpine villages like Kranjska Gora into ski resorts. As the snow melts in May, you can expect to find the Soca River flowing with more force, whilst high above the wild meadows of the Pokljuka Plateau become blanketed in spring daffodils, dandelions, and purple flowering crocuses. June to September is the best time to go hiking or cycling in warmer temperatures, although Lake Bled, especially, can get busy in the summer vacations.
