The northernmost region in Slovenia is also arguably its most cherished and adored, with alpine mountains covering the vast majority of it, providing the sort of scenery one comes to expect from such a magnificent range.

The air is fresh and tinged with romance, with gorgeous valley after gorgeous valley just waiting to impress each and every prospective visitor. Among the region’s many sights, Slovenia’s most famous lakes, Bled and Bohinj, are found here, as well as its only national park and highest point, the mighty Mt Triglav.

When it comes to outdoor activities, there are countless opportunities to ski, hike cycle, kayak and much more. Starting from the Italian border in the far west and mesmerizing emerald waters of the Soča river, the region is actually comprised of several different mountain ranges, namely, the Julian Alps, Karavanke and Western Kamnik­ Savinje Alps, with the Pohorje mountains stretching to Slovenia’s second city of Maribor in the east.

The most iconic feature of the most iconic attraction in the country, the image of the church on the island at­ tracts countless curious visitors to Bled, and Slovenia, every year. Whilst the location alone is reason enough to visit, the church itself is full of history and legend. The Wishing bell and the story is a curious mix of fact and fiction, and ringing it is a must-do when on the island.

Carve the fresh powder at Kranjska Gora

Kranjska Gora, www.kranjska-gora.si

Considered the premier ski resort in Slovenia, Kranjska Gora is a favourite haunt for well-to-do locals and for­eigners alike. You won’t find the most challenging runs, but it’s excellent for beginners and intermediate skiers. If you need more speed to get the adrenaline pumping, a World Cup slope in nearby Podkoren is sure to do the trick, while there are some beautiful trails for cross­ country skiers.

Explore the gorgeous Tolmin Gorges

Just a stone throw away from Tolmin, at the confluence of Tolminka and Zadlaščica, both streams have carved deep gorges into the rocks. A tourist path, which enables a view of the gorges both from the top and from the bottom, runs by the crystal clear turquoise water. The gorges are the lowest point of Triglav National Park and one of the most popular tourist spots in the region. Try finding Bear’s Head and The Devil’s Bridge set 60 metres high above the Tolminka River and the thermal spring in the cave under.
