Details

This guidebook offers 23 walking routes across the 120km Karavanke mountain range, a natural border between Austria and Slovenia. The one and two-day routes are graded by difficulty. The approaches are mainly from the Slovenian valleys, with bases in the towns and villages preserved.
This is one of the largest massifs of Western Europe, it remains relatively unvisited and unknown among English-speaking hillwalkers. Visitors tend to rush to the much better known Julian Alps

The hikes are naturally divided into two sections:  the Western Karavanke, as far as the Košuta ridge, is more or less a single unbroken ridge, while the Eastern Karavanke are split into several massifs

All the walks are graded from 1 to 3, and though not an official system this will help assess each route’s suitability to your own ability and taste. It should be noted however, that even the easiest grade (1) may be a long and tiring excursion, despite not being excessively steep or technical, so previous mountain experience is recommended. The highest graded routes are particularly strenuous, tackling high and exposed sections that require the aid of fixed steel cables and pegs

The guide presents the hiking west to east along the massif, with the top Stol, the highest at 2236 m altitude.

Also contains an overview of the history of the region, as well as practical details on transport, access roads, accommodation and facilities available.
