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.

We drove up from Kranjska Gora and admired the sensational views. The road was very drivable but do watch out for bicycles! Lots of pull outs to stop and take a look.

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.
