Destinations: Triglav National Park - Slovenia

The Triglav NP lies in the Julian Alps in the north-west of Slovenia. It is around 800km2 of mostly rugged terrain with great scenery. The highest point is Mount Triglav at 2864m. Wildlife includes Chamois, Alpine Marmot, Mountain Hare, Golden Eagle and Wallcreeper. Though the tourist infrastructure is good, with marked trails and mountain huts and plenty of hotels lower down, this is ultimately trekking country and the weather can be unpredictable so good planning and proper gear are needed on any visit.
