The Julian Alps take their name from the Julian dynasty who ruled on the southern side of the Alps and were first mentioned in ancient times. The Julian Alps are built of Mesozoic marine sediments. Tectonic forces created fractures and folding and carved out magnificent rock faces and peaks.
The varied flora and fauna rightly enjoy considerable fame. Natural riches, plentiful water sources and a favourable climate created conditions for early settlement in this wonderful corner of Europe. The Julian Alps are one of the world's treasures - a challenge to every climber and a source of pleasure for every traveller.
In the modern world it is easy to get fed up with the rapid pace of life. Constantly under stress, we never have enough time to relax and find peace. In the Julian Alps, time stops for a moment or two. The mighty mood of nature settles in the climber's soul at any time of year, on any path, whether we are alone or in company.
