Alpe Adria Trail


The Alpe Adria Trail is a long-distance trail consisting of a total of 43 stages and approximately 750 km in length. It connects as many as three regions:


  • Austrian Carinthia
  • Slovenia and
  • Friuli-Julian Region.


The trail leads from the foot of Austria’s highest mountain, Veliki Klek, through the most beautiful Carinthian mountain and lake landscape and past the junction of the three countries of Austria, Slovenia and Italy, to the Adriatic coast and the town of Milje. The stages are about 20 km long, require about 6 hours of walking and are uniformly marked with signs.

The Alpe Adria Trail runs along already existing hiking trails and boasts the appropriate quality of hiking trails. On each stage there are many distinctive signs and on each stage you can find at least one ‘magical place’, a special place of harmony of the four elements.

The trail passes us through the following stages:


  • Kranjska Gora-Trenta (22,6 km)
  • Trenta – Bovec (21,3 km)
  • Bovec – Drežnica (25,1 km)
  • Drežnica – Tolmin (23,2 km)


In the following, we will present the Trenta-Bovec stage, which passes directly by us. You can find the entire route on the official link.

This stage takes place along the marked Soča trail. Along almost the entire stage, we walk along the Soča River. We start the journey at Dom Trenta, which offers a presentation of TNP and several exhibitions about Trenta’s nature, environment and people in it. We walk along the Soča valley and follow the river down the valley towards Bovec. At the sign, cross the main road and follow the Soča along the left bank. We walk through forests, meadows and pastures, past a huge landslide. On the information boards, you can read some information about the avalanche and the vegetation in the area.

The trail continues into the valley towards the village of Soča. Before the center of the village of Soča, we go at the turnoff for Vas na Skali and Vrsnik, past the Small Soča Gorge. These are 100 meters long and up to 6 meters deep.


In the village of Soča, behind the church of St. Jožef with paintings by Tone Kralj, there is a military cemetery from the 1st World War. After the village, the path soon leads us to the Great Soča Gorge which represent the most beautiful natural attraction of the Soča trail. They are located at the beginning of the Lepena valley. The gorge are 750 meters long, in some places only 2 meters wide, and are surrounded by walls up to 15 meters high. Here you can see the beautiful green-blue color of the river Soča.


We continue to follow the signs in the direction of the Lepena valley, where the gorge ends. We make a short stop at the camp, where we see the confluence of the Lepenica and the Soča. We cross the bridge over Lepenca and now walk along the right bank of the river.

The trail leads us to a larger bridge, where we have the road on one side and the river Soča on the other. When we reach the bridge, cross it and continue along the macadam road along the left bank of the river and soon we will reach the riverbed near Kršovec. We cross the Brijeka bridge and continue in the direction of Vodenca, where we can see the confluence of the Soča and Koritnica rivers and go through the camps in the direction of Bovc. After a steep but short climb, we only go through a small forest and across fields, where we can already see the church of the Virgin Mary in Polje, past which we walk to the center of Bovec.

We cross quite a few suspension bridges
