An incredibly beautiful 3-day hiking tour around Triglav’s immediate vicinity. No demanding climbs, just exceptionally picturesque walks in Slovenia’s spectacular Julian Alps. It’s an unforgettable hut-to-hut expedition that takes you through the most awe-inspiring landscape in Slovenia. Witness unforgettably stunning views, encounter indigenous wildlife, taste traditional Alpine food and learn first-hand about Slovenian mountaineering culture.

This fantastic hut-to-hut tour involves around 5 to 6 hours of walking per day down trails of moderate difficulty. The routes around the Lake Bohinj area and towards Triglav’s Seven Lakes Valley are appropriate for most amateur hikers and offer beautiful vistas of the highest peaks of the Julian Alps.

The tour begins at the gorgeous Lake Bohinj and leads past high pastures dotted with grazing cattle, the source of famous Slovenian cheeses and soured milk. As we ascend further, we see the surrounding terrain become rugged and rocky while the trail itself remains relatively undemanding and pleasant. The scenery changes into majestic slopes with scarce alpine vegetation, the home of graceful wild climbers, such as the chamois or ibex. Don’t be surprised if we encounter a few of these local show-offs.

The trail then leads past pristine alpine lakes, each with its own shape, colour and story. The Triglav Lakes Valley or Seven Lakes Valley is something out of a storybook. Rest assured, you will have numerous opportunities for scenic breaks along the way to really absorb the majesty of this special place. Nights will be spent sleeping in lovely mountain huts, deeply rooted in Slovenian Alpine tradition. Their cosy shelters that offer a delightfully scenic atmosphere and delicious cuisine. For those most keen, there will be a chance to add an extra peak after each mountain hut we reach.

This hut to hut hiking Slovenia tour is easy and not technically demanding, suitable for everyone with a basic level of physical fitness. Families included. The route is flexible enough to be adapted to suit beginners as well as the more experienced and eager hikers in search of adrenaline.

NOTE: It can be busy up there in the summer. To ensure your spot in the lodges, we recommend booking the tour several weeks in advance, especially for the weekends.
