Alpe Adria Trail (1): Soča

The Alpe Adria Trail (AAT) is an epic, 750km hiking route through Austria, Slovenia and Italy, from the foot of the Grossglockner (at 3,798m, the highest peak in Austria and the Eastern Alps) to Muggia near Trieste on the Adriatic coast.
I was recently commissioned to write the first English-language guidebook to the AAT, so will be walking the whole route in several trips/sections over the next few months. Since I was in Zagreb last week anyway, I got the train over the border to Slovenia and did four stages there, in one of my favourite areas along the beautiful River Soča.

Excellent shot, wonderful project. With 750 kilometers to hike, you have the work cut out for you for quite a while…
