Wildlife of Slovenia
Slovenia is a nation with wonderful scenery and rich wildlife, and still relatively unknown and undiscovered. We start our journey amongst the soaring crags of the Julian Alps, where we explore its lakes, forests and high mountain pastures. We then move on to the karst limestone region, with some amazing geological features including a seasonal lake – that turns into an arable farm in the summer! – and vast caves, into which we descend. In one, we hope to encounter the Olm – a mysterious pink aquatic salamander, restricted virtually entirely to this region. We continue to the Adriatic coast, and cross into Croatia, for an excellent range of Mediterranean birds and wildlife, including a visit to one of the islands.
