There is some info and pics in our 2012 blog here for Austria and Slovenia. https://sites.google.com/site/hankte...og/summer-2012
Thanks Barryd, I will have a read

We have been over 5 passes into Slovenia but would not drive with MH or Caravan over some of them. Going through the Karawanken Tunnel you need to get off the Autobahn and along the main road running alongside then you do not need a Vignette to get to Bled.

Hi. I am useless at remembering routes but do remember a big tunnel and a motorway but I think that was going from the Halstatsee to southern Austria. There is a photo on the blog of me stood on the motorway having a cig where we were stuck for 2 hours as there was an accident in the tunnel.

I do remember avoiding the toll coming down to Bled but there was definitely a pass. Not a big one but a pass all the same and fairly steep.

Will see if I can retrace my route later.

Loved Austria. The lakes east of Salzburg are stunning


EDIT: Just noticed you cannot say the word F A G on here as in Cig! Good grief!

There is another pass in Austria near to Italian border named Wurzen which goes into the Triglav National Park then you go East to Bled. Some very steep climbs on this pass but interestingly there is a Tank Museum you can visit on the way.
Slovenia is a lovely country we visit it and Tavisio in Italy from the campsite we stop at on Ossiachersee for the day. Both Countries are just 3o odd minutes from the Campsite.
