Slovenia long distance routes
I am visiting Slovenia and other countries along the European alps next July and August and hope to hike for about 40 days. My partner and I are fit, and experienced in mountain trekking and work as hiking guides in Tasmania.
We are looking at either doing the red route of the via alpina from Ankaran in Slovenia to Innsbruck; or the Slovene High Route from the coast to Vrsic and onwards to Austria via the red route.
We would really some advice on route choice and the differences between these two. It seems the High Level Route takes in more remote and mountainous terrain? We are happy to camp, stay in remote areas and take via Ferrata kits if neccessary. Any recommended 'must dos', route choice, and side trips would be really, really appreciated!
