slovenska planinska pot.jpg
When talking about Slovenian footpaths we simply can't overlook the Slovenska planinska pot (SPP) trail. There are more than fifty mountaineering transversal routes that take you through the mountainous and hilly regions. Walking them can take from nothing more than a few hours or, on the other hand, whole weeks. The most notable place among them definitely belongs to the Slovenska planinska pot trail (SPP) from Maribor to Ankaran.

When talking about Slovenian footpaths we simply can't overlook the Slovenska planinska pot (SPP) trail. There are more than fifty mountaineering transversal routes that take you through the mountainous and hilly regions. Walking them can take from nothing more than a few hours or, on the other hand, whole weeks. The most notable place among them definitely belongs to the Slovenska planinska pot trail (SPP) from Maribor to Ankaran.

Here everyone can find something for themselves. The points are spread all over Slovenia and present individual goals. Across the mountains and valleys, hills and lowlands, the Alps, Dinaric mountains and the hilly land with a hint of the Mediterranean. Not to mention the outskirts of the Panonska nižina lowlands which we see at the very beginning. The route is set to cross all the Slovenian Alpine ranges (The Kamniške Alpe, The Karavanke and the Julijske Alpe), starting by walking across Pohorje, a mostly magmatic mountain range, which is an exception in the otherwise predominantly limestone Slovenian mountains. Some experts consider Pohorje to be a south-east outgrowth of the Central Alps.

The SPP is the first – therefore the number 1 along its markings – and the oldest Slovenian connecting route, opened in the year 1953. Since it takes us over the main mountain ridges it enables the most direct encounter of the Slovenian highlands and the extremely interesting meeting point between the Alpine and the Dinaric mountains to which we enter across Porezen and the Cerkljansko hribovje hills.

Over the Dinaric ridges which, unlike the mostly West-Eastern oriented ridges of the Alps, are oriented in the South-Eastern direction, we get closer and closer to the seaside. The route ends right on the coastline at Ankaran, where the sea offers a pleasantly cool refreshment. With this cleansing ritual we conclude the most attractive Slovenian mountain trek. The highest point on the route is the highest Slovenian mountain Triglav, 2864 m.

The very names of individual routes (from Maribor across Pohorje to Slovenj Gradec, Across the mountains between Mislinja and Savinja, Across the Kamniške and Savinjske Alpe, Across the Karavanke, From Mojstrana to Triglav and to Vršič, From Vršič to Jalovec and Trenta, Across the Julijske Alpe between the Soča and the Bača, Across the Cerkljansko and Idrijsko hribovje hills, Through the Trnovski gozd forest and Across Nanos to Razdrto, From Razdrto across Kras to the seaside) all vividly speak about the route not only taking us to the rocky mountain tops but also introduce the rich and vibrant history of the Slovenian man. We will set foot on top of the highest summits, make stops at numerous mountain cabins, experience a myriad of picturesque views, discover mountain lakes and rare mountain flowers.

Starting points: various – you can start or finish The Slovenska planinska pot trail in Maribor, Ankaran or anywhere else along the way. The trail is not limited in terms of time.

Walking time: 30 days
Lenght: 500 km
