Pickup location and time

Slovenia is home to many spectacular waterfalls, but the two falls of Martuljek have a special place in the hearts of locals.

Seated deep within sheer rock, they are not only a marvel of nature, but a supreme hiking destination. We will trace their streams up the mighty mountain walls where the first waterfall awaits.

A path through the woods will take us to the second (and the more spectacular) one, where you will be able to take pictures in front of the stunning 34-metre fall behind.

On our way back, we will visit an authentic traditional charcoal pile where people still practice one of humanity’s oldest crafts – turning wood into charcoal.

The first part is short and easy, suitable for everyone. The optional extension to the second waterfall is a bit more technically demanding and requires basic hiking experience.

Things to know

It is important that your clothes are comfortable. It is recommended that you also have some warmer and windproof clothing with you as temperature can drop or in case of cold wind. You can always leave excess clothes in the van after consulting with our guide.

Even though Slovenia is small, it has quite a diverse climate, so it is not unusual for the weather to be better in another part of the country. In that case, we will suggest a different tour where the weather will be nice. If offered alternative tour doesn’t suit you or if the weather is not suitable for hiking, you will receive a full refund if you have already prepaid our tour.

We believe that your experience will be better in smaller groups. Therefore, there will be a maximum of 8 guests per guide.

The tour is easy and suitable for everyone. It is flexible and it can be adjusted to your preferences, skills and fitness.

Our tours are led by professional local guides. Our guides will make sure that you receive expert guiding combined with great fun and a memorable experience.

Children are also welcomed on the tour. Children should be able to hike for a few hours with breaks. If you are planning to go on a tour with young kids, please let us know in advance and we can adjust the tour if necessary.

Bring enough water, some snacks and sunscreen or other sun protection. You can also bring trekking poles if you are used to them.
