From the border with Italy to Predjama the route follows the Via Alpina red trail. From there on it's a combination of the newly Via Dinarica White trail and the Slovenski Planinarski Put to Gorenje. With the Slovenia 100Mile trail the route continues to Sveti Lovrenc, Planina and Rakov Škocjan. In Rakov Škocjan there is an education trail that leads you along the river Rak. Through the forest the water shows up again (or not) in the magical Cerkniško lake. During the summer the lake might dissapear completely. From Cerknica there is a well marked hiking path up to mount Slivnica, the home of the witches. Next mountain (hill) is Križna Gora next to Križna jama, a beautiful cave. This part of the route is part of the Cerknica Transversale.

In Stari Trg the route goes the the spring of river Obrh from where it follows a biking and hiking paths through Kočevje to the border at Petrina where you cross the Kolpa river to Croatia. Complete list with daystages: Walking from Amsterdam to Sarajevo

Great job and we're working on the extension onward to Kosovo and into Macedonia! Ask me if you like to make this hike even longer. :)
