10 Wildflower Scenes From The Alps

When spring blooming is over at lower elevations, it starts in the high mountains. June and July are usually the peak of wildflower blooming in the Alps, and we brought you some pretty flowers from there, because… well, I guess I like my wildflower pictures, and I grab every occasion to show them to anyone who’s interested. 😛

But to make it useful to you, too (should we make everything always useful?), we’ll tell you about some of our favorite hikes in the Julian Alps, Kamnik Alps and the Austrian Alps on the way.

Hohe Tauern National Park, Austria

Hohe Tauern amazed us with everything, and that includes wildflowers. We enjoyed taking the cable car up to 2300 metres to Weisssee Glacier World, and then hike to Kalser Törl and back to Weisssee, then Grünsee. We hiked through quite some idyllic landscapes with flowers and grazing cows – you know, the typical alpine postcard scene.

The valleys of Untersulzbachtal and Obersulzbachtal impressed with waterfalls and wildflowers.

Grossglockner High Alpine Road didn’t even require hiking to reach those beautiful alpine meadows. Nevertheless, we enjoyed doing a loop trail to Pasterze Glacier.

Julian Alps, Slovenia

Being the most perfect shade of turquoise, Soča River is the prettiest mountain river in Europe. What if we add some wildflowers to the scene?

The trail through Mostnica Gorge and then to Mostnica Waterfall is barely known and very close to Lake Bohinj.

The trail to Slemenova Špica is a relatively short and very scenic one, with panoramic views and you-know-what. 😀

Kamnik Alps, Slovenia

One of the easiest (please note that I didn’t say easy, but easiest) full day hikes in the Kamnik Alps took us to stunning views from the Kamnik Saddle – and also took us through colorful meadows with millions of flowers.

Now is your turn. Do you have any favorite wildflower trails in the Alps?
