The Alpe Adria Trail is a new hiking trail for guided tours and individual trips, which starts at the foot of Grossglockner and finishes in the town of Muggia on the Adriatic coast. It crosses three countries (Austria, Slovenia, Italy) and leads hikers through three cultures and three natural environments. This area, characterized by the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, is rich in tradition and history and it boasts a unique natural landscape. The trail is relatively simple and not very demanding; it makes use of existing hiking trails and was developed in cooperation with local tourism associations and hiking experts. The Alpe Adria Trail is currently 700 km long and composed of 43 sections, which are never longer than 20 km. It represents a new style of hiking, which is already proving to be very successful and popular.
