This guidebook describes 23 walking routes across the 120km-long Karavanke mountain range, which forms a natural border between Austria and Slovenia. The one and two-day routes cater for all abilities, from low-level walks to high summits. The approaches are mainly from the forested valleys of the Slovenian side, with bases in unspoilt towns and villages. Arranged in the book by peak from west to east along the range, the routes feature major highlights including Stol (at 2236m the highest in the range and one that forms a stunning backdrop to the beautiful Lake Bled), the majestic Kosuta ridge and Golica - a mountain that displays a fine carpet of white daffodils in May. The guide gives all the practical details you need on transport, accessing the routes, accommodation and available facilities, as well as insight into the historical sites passed on the way. The Karavanke offers a wealth of superb walking opportunities for walkers of all abilities, and this is an invaluable companion to discovering the range for yourself.
