The Alpe Adria Trail is a new topical hiking trail offering 680 kilometers of diverse and thrilling travel through three countries and three different cultures. The concept of the trail has been set up so that each stage runs along touristically-interesting regions with rich cultural, natural, and culinary tradition. The basic common thread is the richness of waters along the trail in any state found: from glaciers, rivers, waterfalls, springs, and lakes to the sea.

The trail leads from Austria’s highest mountain, the 3798-meter high Grossglockner, to the Adriatic Sea. In 38 stages, each of which is around 17 kilometers long, the marked trail leads the traveler through the Austrian region of Kärnten, the Italian region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia, and Slovenia to its geographical finish at Muggia, situated south of Trieste.

On the territory of Slovenia, the Alpe Adria Trail runs from the Japca pass at the borderline between Slovenia and Austria through Kranjska Gora and Tamar to the Vršič Pass and further on to the source of the Soča River, following the Soča trail to Bovec and then along its left riverbank to Kobarid, Drežnica, Tolmin, and past the Solarij border crossing to Friuli-Venezia Giulia. At Neblo, the trail again turns to the Slovenian part of the hilly landscape, namely to Goriška Brda, and then across Dobrovo back to the Italian Cormons, continuing along the Italian part of the Karst over the Slovenian hill Kokoš to Lipica. From here, the trail descends to Muggia and Trieste.

The initiative for a new topical trail came from the Carinthian Kärnten Werbung, while in Slovenia the project was joined by the Slovenian Tourist Board and the Slovenian Hiking and Cycling Association, as well as other Slovenian destination boards: the Sotočje LTO; the Kranjska Gora Tourist Office; the Bovec LTO; The Brda Institute for Tourism, Sports and Youth; the Sežana Institute for Tourism, Sports and Youth; and the Alpine Association of Slovenia and Triglav National Park. In Italy, FV Turismo joined the project as well.
