Faaker See/Baumgartnerhöhe – Kranjska Gora

Cross-border majesty

High above Lake Faaker See, we will hike towards the Austrian-Slovenian border from the Baumgartnerhöhe heights, which offer great views. Only the wind and the fantastic views will accompany us over the majestic mountain range of the Karawanken to Slovenia. What once separated two cultures now forms a splendid connection. Hidden between the mountains, we discover the mountain village and winter sports centre of Kranjska Gora, directly at the gateway to the Triglav National Park, one of the authentic gardens of Eden in the Julian Alps.

Erjavčeva mountain hut is located from Kranjska Gora via the Vršič mountain pass to Trenta. That is the same way that Alpe Adria Trail is going. So if you decide to walk the Alpe Adria Trail, our hut is one option to stay and rest or spend the night on the most beautiful spot on the Vršič mountain.

Liznjek House: The 300-year-old house in the centre of Kranjska Gora was long regarded as a prototype for regional farmhouses.

Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin: This late gothic building from 1510, constructed by Jernej Firtaler from Villach, can be found in the centre of Kranjska Gora.

Alpe Adria Tour Guide Vršič

Russian chapel: The road over the Vršič pass was built by Russian prisoners of war in the First World War. The chapel is in memory of an avalanche tragedy in 1916 when over 200 prisoners of war and soldiers were killed.

Reserve your stay at Erjavčeva mountain hut located on the Vršič mountain pass.

Vršič: The Vršič mountain pass is the highest road pass (1.611 m) in the eastern part of the Julian Alps. From a viewpoint, you can see the rocky face of the “pagan girl”. “Pagan girl” (“Ajdovska deklica”): Legend has it that she prophesied the death of Zlatorog, a legendary chamois buck. As a punishment, she was turned into a rock. Dr. Julius Kugy monument: The lawyer and humanist Julius Kugy (1858 – 1944) was one of the greatest admirers and pioneers of the Julian Alps.

Soča spring: One of the most beautiful karst springs in the Julian Alps.

Kranjska Gora – Trenta

Soča spring, a natural gem

From Kranjska Gora in Slovenia, this lush green stage takes us past the Best Western Hotel Kranjska Gora to the lakes of Jasna and, from there, further along the Pišnica mountain stream to the fork towards the Mihov dom shelter. Passing the Russian chapel along the old donkey trail, we finally reach the Vršič Pass, the highest mountain pass in the Julian Alps.

The Soča spring, one of the most beautiful Alpine springs, will leave a lasting impression before we reach Trenta.
