Each stage covers a distance of around 17 kilometres, and the Trail passes through Carinthia, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Slovenia.
In total it covers 690 km heading in a southerly direction.
With the Mediterranean climate along the route, sunshine and pleasant temperatures are almost guaranteed together with stunning views of the paradise of the Alps and the Adriatic.
