Julian Alps are the largest mountain group in Slovenia and also a part of the Alps. Almost in the middle of the mountain range is the highest mountain of Slovenia, mt. Triglav.

We have designed an amazing gravel loop where you can in 3 days experience the best of what Slovenian mountains and the Julian Alps have to offer.
