Attention hiking enthusiasts! The Julian Alps are up for the taking. This Self-Guided Walking Holiday combines the very best locations and the hiking trails that lead you there. We have assembled a list of must-visit places in Slovenia’s magical Triglav National Park that you can travel to at your own steam in the most up-close-and-personal manner – on foot. Witness remarkably stunning views, encounter local wildlife and people, taste traditional Alpine food, and experience first-hand the joys of walking in our country’s stunning Alps.
The best perk of this type of holiday is that you have the complete freedom of hiking in the mountains with a pre-planned itinerary that includes all the main highlights and more. You do not have to worry about logistics, since we drive you to every basecamp from where you then explore the surrounding area. Each day promises a new adventure in a different part of this amazing region. The hiking trails themselves are of an intermediate level, so expect a reasonable amount of effort, but they are certainly suitable for most amateur hikers with a decent physical condition. Nothing too strenuous and extremely rewarding.
There is nothing more traditional in the Slovenian mountains than hut-to-hut hiking. This involves walking through scenic valleys and gorgeous forests, along emerald rivers in mysterious gorges and up to high mountain pastures amid towering mountains, with overnight stay at mountain huts in the most sublime locations. Every hut has the basic amenities, warm tasty food, and panoramic views that will take your breath away. Your Alpine pilgrimage takes you over the hills from one incredible glacial lake to another. The area between Lake Bled and its larger counterpart, Lake Bohinj, is simply out of this world. Four full days of hiking await and the rest will be spent exploring the amazing areas around the mentioned lakes, where extra outdoor activities are always available and come highly recommended. In short, a perfect combination of relaxation and active hiking.
We will provide you with all the necessary information, including what hiking gear (quality hiking shoes, enough change of clothes, etc.) to pack, where the best places to eat are and of course how to navigate your way down the hiking trails. Our support team will come and pick you up at the end of each leg of your journey and will be on constant standby in the event you need any additional help. Your accommodations will also be taken care of, allowing you to focus solely on exploring this surreally beautiful environment.
