Vrsic Pass in the Julian Alps offers some beautiful views. It has many hairpin curves, so it helps if you are used to driving in the mountains. The area is loaded with history and well worth the trip.

Went on a day trip to the Julian Alps and was not disappointed. The views and scenery throughout the trip could not be better. Of all the trips on offer I would rate this one the best.

We recommend the hikes to Visoki Mavrinc and Slemenova Spica. We spent 4 days in the Julian Alps and the Slemenova Spica hike was our favorite.
