8-day hiking tour: DISCOVER SLOVENIAN ALPS
A wonderful combination of hut-to-hut hiking and exploring the amazing natural sights
This amazing 8-day hiking tour shows you the best of Slovenian Alps and lets you experience the whole diversity Slovenia has to offer. It is the ultimate tour for all nature lovers who would like a mix of serious hiking and fun on crystal clear rivers and lakes, get to know the vibrat city of Ljubljana and savour authentic Slovenian food & wine.
The group will meet in Ljubljana, Slovenia's capital city, and then we head off to the mountains to do an amazing 3-day hut-to-hut hike in the heart of the Julian Alps. Don't worry: the huts are fully equipped and you don't need to bring any special gear or food. Everything is there. The hike is technically easy, however you have to be reasonably fit to hike 6-7 hours, overcome app. 15 km (10 miles) and 800 meters (2500 feet) of altitude difference on the hardest day of our hike. After the hike we will explore & have a swim in the stunning lakes of Bohinj & Bled, before continuing to the valley of the emerald Soca river. Here we will climb another fantastic peak, enjoy the rugged landscape of the Julian Alps & discover the hidden secrets of the Soca valley. If you would like to pump your adrenaline, you'll have a chance to do white water rafting, kayaking or canyoning! Continuing towards south we will visit the historic town of Kobarid and finish our tour between the rolling wine hills of Goriska Brda with some first class local food & wine.
Maximum number of guests is 16. In case of more than 8 guests we travel around Slovenia with 2 guides in two 8-seater minivans. This allows us to divide the group during hiking into 'fast' and 'not as fast' group. Well prepared hikers will add a few extra summits and the rest will enjoy the hike at a bit slower pace.

Why hike in Slovenia with Slotrips?
Because we do what we love!
Review by Kathryn from Ireland, visited us in July 2016
I booked the 8 day hiking trip with Slotrips as I had little experience hiking alone but and I felt this was a great way to gain some experience. I gained more than I could have imagined!! This was an incredible trip for me and it is all down to Miha and his team at Slotrips. From the first email Miha was prompt, positive, understanding and professional and Miha turned out to be the very same in person. He gave us the best of everything from the food to the hiking to the accommodation to the fun to the knowledge of the areas. His passion made our experience unforgettable. Miha looked out for everyone so well and he thought of everyone in that he adapted the hikes according to who was on the trip. Miha speaks English and Spanish fluently and he gave our group a great insight into the Slovenian way of life. We did so much swimming in lakes, rivers, waterfalls. We saw incredible views on our various hikes. We ate amazing local food especially as we came down from the mountain in local sheppard huts. We stayed in excellent accommodation (the mountain huts are actually very cosy and comfortable!) Everything we did was of the highest standard. It's going to be difficult to do an organised trip again as Miha has set the bar very high and I don't think others tours could match this one! Don't second question whether to book a trip with Slotrips as I can guarantee you won't be disappointed.
