Commonly known as the way the Alps used to be, as it is yet to experience the extent of commercial development known by the Western Alps, it is one of the longest ranges in Western Europe but it remains genuinely unspoilt and relatively unvisited by English-speaking hillwalkers. The guides walks begin in pretty towns and villages, and most of them access the peaks from the relatively more gentle Slovenian side of the range, where forest-clad slopes lead to grassy summits where spectacular views can be enjoyed. Arranged by peak from west to east along the range, most of the summits can be reached by waymarked paths and trails. 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.
