About the Alpe-Adria Trail
The Alpe-Adria Trail (in Slovenia often referred to as the Garden of Eden Trail) is a long-distance hiking trail that stretches from the foothills of the highest mountain in Austria (Grossglockner) to the Adriatic Sea in Muggia, Italy. It goes through Austria, Slovenia, and Italy, starting in really high alpine regions and gradually moving down to slower-rolling hills in the south. It’s one of the most popular and beautiful thru-hikes in Europe, stretching roughly 750 km in length, with plenty of mountain scenery, thick forests, and even hotter coastal regions. It’s considered a fairly difficult hike due to the elevation gain and several difficult sections but is very well-waymarked.
