Description of Triglav hut to hut hiking tour

Experience the very best of Slovenia’s Julian Alps by trekking across this glorious landscape. On this adventurous hike, you will ascend Slovenia’s highest mountain, venture through the unbelievably beautiful Triglav Lakes Valley, witness nature’s imaginative creations, and sleep in authentic mountain huts.  

This hut-to-hut hiking tour starts at picturesque Bohinj. The first day is spent hiking in the heart of Triglav National Park. As we head deeper into the mountains, the terrain changes and stunning views open up. We make our way past the famous Vodnik Lodge and up to the Planika Lodge near Mount Triglav where we spend the night. The following day, it’s time to conquer Slovenia’s highest mountain. This is the most technically demanding leg of our journey, but that’s why we have our professional guide, who will make sure everyone feels safe and secure. From Triglav, it’s time to descend into the magical Triglav Lakes Valley also called the Seven Lakes Valley because of the lovely lakes that reside there. We hike through this breathtakingly scenic place to the Triglav Lakes Lodge where a well-deserved night’s rest awaits. On the third day, we return via the vast Komna Plateau towards the Savica Waterfall and back to Bohinj.

This fantastic journey is packed with some of the best panoramic views of the Julian Alps and their hidden valleys with gorgeous glacial lakes. You might even get to meet the local wildlife population, like the chamois or ibex. The trails are not too demanding and are suitable for amateur hikers, however, a relatively high level of physical fitness is advisable, especially for the Mt. Triglav ascent. You will get to taste authentic mountain hut food and feel that special type of freedom which comes along with hiking, sleeping and waking up high in the Alps. It’s a very unique experience and an unforgettable journey, so do come along!

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!

  • Hey! It was our family’s second visit to Slovenia and we wanted to do a longer tour of the mountains. The three-day hike across the pastures and forests from lake Bohinj, through the Triglav lakes valley and up to Mt Krn sounded like a superb way of exploring the mountains. Well, it really was! We got to see so much of Slovenia’s amazing Alps. The journey was long but very enjoyable. Our guide was so much fun and talked us through what we saw on the way. The hiking speed was perfect and we made a number of stops to rest. Which were definitely needed! 10/10 points for organization!:) At the huts we tried tasty local dishes and sleeping up in the mountains was a very special experience. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone!
