When it comes to hiking, Slovenia shoots way above its weight.

Straddling the border between the Balkans and Central Europe, Slovenia is a small country with vast adventure options — focalized mostly around the Julian Alps

Hidden among these limestone towers are hundreds of forested footpaths to walk, rustic villages to visit, deep turquoise lakes to swim in, and pale castles to explore. Packed with history and hidden from the crowds, Slovenia is a hiking spot you shouldn’t sleep on.
