On this trip, we will hike crossing borders in 3 different countries, so they take the meaning literally, cross-country hiking. Mainly we will discover the beautiful Friuli and Julian Alps in Slovenia, a region that is full of national parks and surrounded by mountains, waterfalls, rivers, and lakes.
