Get settled at Lake Bled, the most popular alpine resort in Slovenia, your home for the next four days. Start your walking adventure after a short drive to Bohinj area and a cable car ride to Vogel, a skiing area in the winter and a walker’s paradise the rest of the year. Surrounded by beautiful mountain vistas, the trails of Vogel are the easiest in the Slovenian Alps at such elevation. Enjoy the beautiful view of Lake Bohinj, an absolute pearl of Triglav National Park. To energise before your walking, we will treat you with a nice traditional lunch in a mountain hut.

DAY 2 - Hiking in the area of Lake Bohinj

Start your day at the crack of dawn and head up to a small hill in Bled, called Ojstrica, for a spectacular sunrise view of Lake Bled. After breakfast and maybe a quick nap for the sleepyheads, we will head out to discover Voje Valley. Our walk will start at Mostnica Gorge with trails and bridges that cross this stunning creation of nature. Halfway into the valley, we will stop at the Voje mountain hut for lunch (and some of the best pies ever!) to fuel up for the rest of the day. The Voje Valley opens up and crossing shepherding meadows and forests, we will reach another pearl, the Mostnica Waterfall. After our return to the starting point, we will head to Lake Bohinj for some free time, swimming or, for those most eager, some more walking along the lake’s shore. We will wrap up this exciting day with a real treat, a gourmet dinner at a local family-run restaurant.

DAY 3 - Hiking in Vintgar Gorge & Alpine Valleys

An absolute favourite for anyone staying at Lake Bled, is a hike through Vintgar Gorge, located very near. Following Radovna River on boardwalks and trails, this refreshing and shady walk is a perfect start of our day. After Vintgar, we will drive through the less-known Radovna and Krma Valleys with their almost untouched traditional way of life to reach Vrata Valley, right in the heart of the Julian Alps. Vrata Valley is marked by the Triglavska Bistrica stream and a great walking trail all the way to the head of the valley, where you will be in awe of the great northern face of Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia. Our lunch break will include a stop at the Aljažev dom hut, a popular base for hikers and mountaineers that head up to the higher peaks. Our highlight of the afternoon will be the Peričnik Waterfall, one of the highest among Slovenian waterfalls, where you can literally walk behind it.

DAY 4 - Drive over Vršič Pass into Soča Valley

We will say goodbye to Bled and head over the Vršič Pass through the stunning Soča Valley. A journey to the heart of the Julian Alps with beautiful stops with magnificent views will be a wonderful prelude of what’s to follow in the days to come. Enjoy a traditional meal, or a fun barbecue in case you join another escorted small group. Enjoy some free time in the small town of Bovec in the afternoon, relax and get ready for the next few days.

DAY 5 - Hiking around Bovec

We will head up to the river banks of the Soča and discover its lively course, exploring the amazing troughs the river has made and hike into Lepena Valley, another paradise corner of this part of Slovenia. The hike will take us to an almost secret grove, following natural pools and small waterfalls, all in the shade of a green, lush forest. Enjoy a delicious traditional lunch in a local village. The afternoon will be reserved for waterfalls around Bovec and free time to spend relaxing in the beautiful setting of this adventure capital of Slovenia.

Overnight stay in Bovec

DAY 6 - Kobarid WWI heritage and hiking to Kozjak Waterfall

We will drive further south, towards Kobarid, where we go on a hiking loop to Drežnica village, voted one of the most scenic villages in Slovenia, and walk through the beautiful surrounding nature. Amazing forests, mountains and gorges will keep you company all the way to the famous Kozjak Waterfall, which is an absolute must if you are in the area. Our delicious lunch will be in Kobarid, an experience in itself with traditional cuisine and delightful atmosphere. The area of Kobarid is also famous for its WWI history, which you will get to know more about after a visit to the world-famous Kobarid museum.

DAY 7 - Over Predil Pass to Tamar Valley and Kranjska Gora

All good things must come to an end, so we will leave the stunning Soča Valley and head up towards the Predil Pass, which will briefly bring us through Italy, where we will stop by the tranquil Lake Predil. After a short drive, we will re-enter Slovenia in the very northwestern corner and enter a valley, called Tamar. Most of the valley is closed for traffic, which makes it a perfect hiking destination and the entry point is by Planica Nordic Center, the home of ski-flying. You will be able to see the enormous ski-jumping hills before the start of the hike. The trail to the head of the valley is surrounded by incredible views of the Julian Alps. The last stop of the day will be near Kranjska Gora, a popular alpine resort, by Lake Jasna where another delicious lunch awaits. After some well-deserved free time by the lake, your holiday will be concluded back in Ljubljana.

Frequently Asked Questions

I am a single traveller, how can I book?

Don’t worry, just drop us a line in our inbox. We will do our best to try and find you some company, so if you are flexible in your travel dates, let us know as well. Do you want a private trip? No problem, we got you covered too.

Why is the accommodation not specified?

We are always looking for the perfect fit for you. We use a few different accommodation providers that fit our standards but they are subjected to availability, especially in the high season. We can also adjust the holiday, keeping in mind your preferences and budget and can always find a more suitable solution for your taste.

Where is the pickup and which transfers are included?

The included pickup and drop-off at the end of the holiday in the price published on our website is in Ljubljana or Ljubljana airport. For any changes, please notify us upon booking. The included transfers are all the transfers between places and/or activities specified in the itinerary.

Where do I eat when the food is not included?

Both our back office team and our guides know where to go. We can give you recommendations or even pre-book some places for you. You can be adventurous and find places on your own. Either way, let us know if you would like any sort of help.

How fit do I need to be?

Walking planned on our walking holidays is easy to moderate - the terrain is not so difficult, there are no major ascents and the pace is meant to be gradual. You have to be able to walk roughly about 4 hours. Your guide is there to take care of you and in case they see you are having difficulties, you can rest assured they will help you out.

What should I wear? Do I have to bring anything with me?

It is important to dress for the season. Slovenia has all 4 seasons, so please check the weather forecast before the holiday regarding temperatures and rainfall. When you are close to the Alps, you can see all 4 seasons change in the same day, so your best bet is to always bring an extra layer and rain gear. We recommend shoes you will be comfortable in. Your guide will let you know each day what kind of weather you can expect for the next day.

I have food restrictions. Are there restaurants for me?

It really depends on the level of your restriction. Vegetarian options are fairly easy to find in Slovenia, but vegan dishes, on the other hand, are extremely hard to come by in rural areas of the country and in smaller towns. Please note that the places where we stop for lunch are often traditional and may have difficulties accommodating you outside of their standard menu. We suggest you keep this in mind.

Will I have some time to myself?

If you want to, sure! We are well aware that some people love to stay in groups while others prefer some more alone time on their trip. We wanted to give you the opportunity to do things your way. It is your holiday, after all! As long as you respect the group timings and locations designated by your guide, please feel free to customize your itinerary and create your own adventure!

What is the tourist tax that is not included in the price?

A tourist and promotion tax is a fee that every visitor has to pay for each overnight stay all over Slovenia. It consists of two parts: each municipality charges a tourist tax fee, which goes towards financing and maintenance of tourist facilities in the area, and the Slovenian Tourist Board charges a promotion tax, which is used to promote Slovenia. Depending on the municipality, the tax rates vary - from 1.5€ in some locations to 3.13€ in Ljubljana or Bled (per person, per night).

    I fell in love with Slovenia after those holidays. Everything is so nice, nature, the people and the organization of the tours was splendid. Hard to tell which hike was the most enjoyable - the alpine world of Slovenia is simply breathtaking!

    Walking holidays in Slovenia was my first walking holidays so far and I loved it. We were going on walks every day and the walks were not too hard so every evening I was looking forward to a new day. Our guide Klemen was really taking care that we were enjoying ourselves at any moment and that walks were not too challenging for any of us. Our group was a bit unequal in terms of what we are used to walking but I could tell everybody was having a lot of fun.

    It was my third time in Slovenia and I just can’t get enough of this amazing pearl of a country.

Thank you.
