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. For last-minute bookings, we can not guarantee a free spot in the chosen lodge, but we will try our best or find the most suitable alternative for you.

This hiking trip wasn’t only cool because we got to witness the best parts of Slovenia’s Julian Alps, but also the way it was organized. They picked us up and took us to the Triglav National Park. The guide made sure everyone could keep up on the steeper areas and told us some really useful info about the mountains… Plus, our group was awesome! I’ve never stayed in mountain huts before, but I’m definitely doing it again. The views were jaw-dropping, the food was amazing and I got to experience the Slovenian alpine spirit first-hand. It’s certainly the best way of exploring the mountains and you don’t have to worry about the logistics, booking huts, etc. Highly recommend it!

I have to say that this was an amazing hiking trip. The itinerary was planned to perfection. I never knew there were so many beautiful lakes in the Slovenian mountains. Our guide took us down some ridiculously picturesque routes we would probably miss out on if going at it alone. He adapted the hike to a doable pace, so the whole group felt comfortable. The huts we stayed at were cosy, warm and we had the pleasure of meeting a few interesting people to share the views with. Way beyond expectations and very rewarding.

It was my first time hiking in a group. I was exploring Slovenia for two weeks and decided to join this journey to see mountains and meet new people. For me the trip was very easy but also nice. All wonders of Triglav park, lakes, beautiful mountains, panorama… and watching the sunrise from the huts… Fantastic! Also the guide was friendly in communication and I learn a lot. I saw so much in 3 days! Good food and drink and great company. If you want some super hiking, meet people and experience beautiful nature go in this trip!
