The Julian Alps are the epicentre of our outdoor tourism. The Alps are home to many animal species, from the iconic to the reclusive. Some species are in danger of extinction, whilst others have been reintroduced or have returned of their own accord. For many animals, protected natural areas are an essential safe haven. The Triglav National Park protects numerous endemic animal and plant species in a region of high mountains and deeply river gorges.They are Slovenia’s largest, highest, and for many people the most beautiful mountain range. Their numerous stunning peaks and incredible valleys are located in the far northwest of Slovenia and continue into the neighbouring Italy. Their unique appearance is imparted to them by the emerald River Soča, the rivers Sava Bohinjka and Sava Dolinka, and the glacial lakes Bohinj and Bled. Most of the Julian Alps are within Slovenia’s only national park, Triglav National Park, which is dominated by our highest mountain, Mt Triglav. The unforgettable backdrop of the Julian Alps attracts all nature lovers. Keep on going higher and higher, through natural arches and mountain passes. Discover the beauties of the Alpine valleys and the uniqueness of Alpine Wildlife.
