Among the Highest Mountains and Wildest Waters
Alpine Slovenia is a world of friendly and accessible mountains and hills. Hiking and biking trails take you across the Julian Alps, the Kamnik-Savinja Alps and the Pohorje Hills to the highest peaks, rivers, lakes and waterfalls. Winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy ski resorts. On the one hand, natural treasures of the highest peaks, green valleys and the most beautiful Slovenian lakes are protected by the fairy tale Goldhorn, while on the other, dome-shaped hills meet the town with the oldest vine in the world.
