An unforgettable 6-day hut-to-hut hiking tour along a super scenic section of the famous Via Alpina in Slovenia. Every day is a new adventure as you tackle the undemanding trails across the Slovenian mountains with overnight stays at mountain huts, located in the pristinely stunning Triglav National Park.
The Via Alpina is a wonderful European collaborative Alpine project that’s been in operation since 2000. It consists of 5 international trails in 342 stages which run through 8 countries from Trieste to Monaco. For this amazing 6-day hiking tour we have carefully selected 4 easy stages of the Via Alpina which will take you into the very heart of Slovenia’s Julian Alps. The trip is suitable for anyone who can walk for up to 5-6 hours per day with breaks.
The trail leads across the unbelievable scenic landscape of the Triglav National Park, where you will get to experience life in the mountains and encounter some incredible Alpine attractions. This type of journey is called hut-hut hiking, meaning you will be spending each night at a different mountain hut location in breathtakingly beautiful surroundings.
Mountain huts are basic, so don’t expect luxurious accommodations. However, they are clean and have all the basic facilities a hiker needs after a long day of exploring. Hut menus consist mainly of local alpine dishes. You’ll definitely regain the calories you lost during your hike and try something new at the same time. Typical food served in most huts are soups with sauerkraut, potatoes, barley, sausages and pork. Authentic and hearty stuff. And remember to bring some cash along, as there are no credit cards in the mountains.
