The tiny European country of Slovenia is a powerhouse for those who love the outdoors. A highlight of traveling to this central European country is hut-to-hut hiking in the Julian Alps, a rugged limestone mountain range stretching from Italy that reaches a crescendo in Triglav National Park. Slovenia also has emerald-colored lakes and rivers (including the Emerald River, known for rafting) and a prime stretch of the Adriatic Coast between Italy and Croatia.
