Dom Planika

A foremost representative of the Slovene mountain hut tradition.
Julian Alps

Planika is among Slovenia’s most authentic mountain huts that can be reached within 5 hours of hiking. It stands at an altitude of 2400 m on a high plateau south of Triglav, and is an excellent starting point for the ascent to our highest mountain peaks. Planika is just the right size to offer comfortable shelter to a large number of hikers (49 in private and 94 in common rooms), but still small enough to give you a sense of cosiness. Guests can mingle in the shared dining area and exchange their Alpine tales, which is certainly among the main perks of staying in mountain huts.

The hut’s complex consists of two separate buildings, which guarantees a quieter night time stay. The original hut was built here as early as 1871 with the current facilities dating back to 1992. Supplies have to be helicoptered in, meaning that the hut’s offer is basic but most welcoming after a daylong hike. The water in the hut is not drinkable, as the reservoir only stores water intended for washing. But that’s part of any mountain huts true Alpine charm!
Planika is only open during the summer season and boasts exceptional views of the southern Julian Alps and the Bohinj Valley below.
