Recommend driving the Vrsic Pass as there are loads of places to stop and admire the Alps. The scenery is simply stunning.

Great views on the way up the road and a fantastic shory hike to the saddle. The road can be really busy and a bit stressful.

I booked the one day Julian Alps tour starting in Lake Bled and ending in Ljubljana through the recommendation by Rick Steve in his guidebook for 230 euros for three of us. Tina picked us up from our Lake Bled hotel at 9 am and the tour ended at our hotel in Ljubljana at about 6.30 pm. This tour is highly recommended as Tina told us so much both about Slovenians' way of life and the places we visited. She is passionate about this tour and showed us as much as she could.
We were amazed by the beauty of all the places she stopped at. She loves driving and going up and down Vrsic Pass to Soca Valley was a smooth journey. We had good weather and it only rained when we were driving back to Ljubljana.
We enjoyed the tour as Tina is an experienced, kind and lovely lady so it was great to spend a day in her company. We are really glad that we have this Julian Alps experience while visiting Slovenia. A must do.

I had heard about an ice-climbing course in Slovenia and decided to sign up for it. I was not disappointed. We had world-class Himalayan alpinists as our guides (Tomaz, Urbi, Andre, and Luka) and a great selection of routes to climb, even if some of us had limited experience. Of course, the weather conditions are different from day to day and year to year but we had good weather conditions for climbing 6 out of 7 days. We don't have this kind of ice or multi pitch routes or guiding near NYC, so this was a special treat.

The road from Bovec to Kobarid I can recommend to get an impression of the beauty of the nature of the Julian Alps. The road follows for a large part the river Soca, well known for the rafting sport. Take your time and stop frequently to take pictures.

Along the main roads through the Julian Alps there are plenty of places to pull over and grab a photo or two. Wonderful scenery and breathtaking mountain views

I loved this countryside. We too the gondola to the top and recommend that although it’s a bit bleak up there.

The Julian Alps in Bovec are shown in all its glory. Lovely place to be at in the summer where everywhere is so hot.

We drove from Bovec up to the Mangart Saddle for a day of Via Ferrata and scrambling. All the routes are open to the public, and unless you are with a club or guide who is sorting you out, you NEED your own gear.

The road up to the saddle is dangerous (we were delayed half an hour because someone had crashed and needed to be recovered... It is not a place to drive irresponsibility) but the views from the top were astonishing. I would recommend coming here for the views alone, but the numerous hiking and climbing opportunities are well worth a visit

Without car a one day tour from Bled seemed the easiest way to see some of this spectacular area. There are trains from Bled Jezero which go to Nova Gorica (very few though) and a Heritage Steam Train on Saturdays in summer which is seemingly fantastic but this option was fine.
Through the Vrsic pass over the border through Tarvisio and down to Bovec and then back through the upper part of the Socha Valley and eventually back to Kransjka Gora and Bled. Look out for the 'Cinque punti' mountain en route.
Various short stops at historical points of interest.
The weather was good which was a bonus.
