Alpe Adria Trail
The Alpe Adria Trail is a 750 km long mountain footpath from the foot of Veliki Klek (Grossglockner) in Carinthia via Kranjska Gora (Slovenia) to the Adriatic Sea near Milje (Muggia) in the Gulf of Trieste in Italy.
The route of the existing mountain and hiking trail in the border area between Austria, Slovenia and Italy. The hiking trail was developed and carried out in cooperation with three partners from Austria (Kärnten Werbung), Slovenia (Slovenian Tourist Organization) and Italy (Tourist Organization of Friuli-Julian Region) and marked on the ground in 2012. The mountaineering organisations of the three participating countries, ÖAV (Österreichischer Alpenverein), PZS (Mountain Association of Slovenia) and CAI (Club Alpino Italiano), are responsible for the marking and maintenance of routes in individual countries. The new way is advertised with the slogan Hiking in Paradise and is permanently marked with a special symbol. On a hike from the glaciers of the Hohe Tauern, along lakes and streams all the way to the coast of the Adriatic Sea, one gets to know the cultural diversity of three different countries, which are connected by a long shared history.
The Trail in Slovenia starts via the Jepca pass via Maloško and Trupej poldnev to Srednji vrh and Kranjska Gora, where it enters the Triglav National Park in the Julian Alps. Via Vršič to Trento and along the Soča valley, past Bovac, Žaga to Drežnica and below Krno to Tolmin, the route continues along the old military routes to the Solarji saddle, where it crosses the border with Italy.
